Senior Software Engineer (Backend)


Founded by Fintech executives from LearnVest, N26 and Stash and backed by Bain Capital Ventures, Homebrew and Inspired Capital, Orum is powering the future of financial services by enabling immediate, frictionless money movement. Orum’s API-based product gives enterprise customers unique funds availability modeling, empowering them with the information required to shift to real-time payments, and then grants access to real-time payment rails without necessitating a bank integration. Orum’s flagship product, Foresight is currently available via Private Beta.

We’re a remote-first company building a geographically distributed team. We believe that working remotely presents a unique opportunity to build a diverse team that opportunistically leverages distance to asynchronously work better. If you’d like to play a part in crystallizing the vision of a world where money is smart, real time, and fully automated, we’d love to hear from you.

This is a unique, exciting opportunity to have a direct impact into software systems built from the ground up. Our software engineers sit alongside data and machine learning teams to develop products grounded in AI. Data is a primary driver of our business value, and developing software that leverages data and models drives key success for our company.

Scalable and reliable software is necessary to deliver valuable intelligence and insight from our data systems to our customers, through APIs and tools. We build on top of cloud infrastructure, follow event-driven paradigms, and embrace serverless stacks where appropriate. The ideal candidate can design, architect and code performant software that is deployed to the cloud. You will have an opportunity to make decisions about the technology components we build on as well as design patterns for organizing our code.

As part of a small but growing engineering team, you will also help create the engineering culture and values at Orum. We strive to have a strong, deliberate culture defined around continuous learning, autonomy and ownership, and acknowledgement of failure. You don’t need to match our practices and culture, as you’ll help to define it. We pride ourselves on diversity and creating an inclusive workplace that provides equal opportunities to all persons.
