Managing personal finances is a chronically stressful problem. Nine out of ten Americans say nothing would make them feel as confident and secure as being on top of their personal finances, but most software out there today falls short.
Monarch is an early-stage, funded Silicon Valley-based startup. We are building the most comprehensive personal finance platform to help people improve their financial lives and achieve their goals.
As a Senior Backend Developer, you would own our Django backend implementation, helping us build the various extensions different people need to manage their personal finances (everything from budgeting, to financial coaching, to savings, investments, credit monitoring, and much more). You will help us decide on our early architecture, think through product decisions and trade-offs, and just pump out a lot of code. You are occasionally OK dipping your toes into our React Native frontend, if necessary, or helping lay our DevOps foundation—after all, at a startup, we all wear multiple hats.
Our founding team consists of product-driven, serial entrepreneurs with multiple exits. Our CEO was one of the original creators of Mint.com and has a unique perspective on what is needed to meet consumers' needs in this market. Our Head of Engineering ran Quora's Product Engineering group.
We are passionate about building a company (and brand) that both customers and employees love. We are seed funded by a top venture firm and a handful of prominent angels.
Although we are based in the San Francisco Bay Area, we are open to remote applicants that live within a 3 hour time zone difference.
