Senior Backend Engineer
- San Francisco, CA
Bond’s mission is to accelerate the pace of financial innovation and access to capital.
Today, it's difficult for many businesses to build the financial products they imagine. Whether that's launching a new credit or debit card, a savings account, a lending business, or anything else — there are barriers in the way. Bond is focused on helping brands, businesses, and banks hurdle over those roadblocks.
Bond makes it easy for businesses to find the sponsor banks they need to legally offer financial products. We make integration to often-antiquated financial vendors more intuitive. And, we make regulatory compliance not only achievable, but accessible. Our platform streamlines the process of launching and iterating on financial products, thereby enabling digital brands to better engage their customers with unique financial products tailored to their needs.
At Bond, we value leadership and believe everyone is a leader. We look for people who operate like owners, who loves to learn, have grit, and operate with integrity and empathy. You're encouraged to apply even if your experience doesn't precisely match the job description. Your skills and passion will stand out — and set you apart. We welcome diverse perspectives and people who are not afraid to challenge assumptions.
The Bond Studio team enables developers to quickly build, launch, and iterate on financial products without directly integrating with antiquated technology vendors. Bond provides the building blocks for modern financial products without the legacy APIs. Our sandbox environment and public API documentation allow developers to get started quickly, and our unified ledger enables them to scale to multiple products without new vendor integrations. As a Senior Backend Engineer, you’ll be responsible for building the systems and integrations that power Bond’s developer experience.
