We’re here to introduce the world to Bitcoin. Fold makes it easy to earn bitcoin, instead of airline miles and hotel points, on everyday purchases via our mobile app and the Fold Visa Debit Card. We’re growing like crazy with a loyal (and loud!) community which has generated a lot of buzz (Fortune, Bloomberg).

Fold’s Senior Backend / Devops Engineer will work alongside our leadership team to manage the development of the Fold Card. This position requires a thoughtful and enthusiastic professional who is passionate about creating best-in-class products and bringing the Fold’s vision for the card to life.

  • Partner closely with customer support specialists as needed to resolve issues
  • Participate in epic, story and requirements definition
  • Participate in daily scrums, weekly planning and other Agile/team driven activities
  • Build web applications, mobile applications, transactional systems, 3rd party integrations, internal tools, and all other systems required for the operations of the products

Why We’ll Love You

  • Building and launching consumer-focused products
  • With best practices for product development across various methodologies, including Agile, Kanban and Lean UX
  • In at least one core component of our stack- Javascript (React), Python (Django), Kubernetes, or Docker.

  • New to Bitcoin? We offer all our new hires a “starter pack” to get you up to speed, including learning materials about Bitcoin and your own hardware wallet.
  • And much much more!

Sr. Backend Engineer Requirements:

  • This is a hybrid role - we are looking for someone with experience with both devops and backend engineering that is interested in flexing both skill sets. This job will involve spending ~50% of your time in each capacity.
