Join our team of five to develop an API-based product that allows Fintechs and Neobanks to quickly add a remittance feature for their end-users. With our API, global Fintechs can enable their users to open US self-custody bank accounts and Solana wallets, perform cash-ins via card, wire/ACH, and cash, and execute payouts in over 15 countries including Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Chile, El Salvador, and Venezuela.

Job functions

Join our API squad as one of the two dedicated engineers on the project. You'll primarily work on integrating APIs within our AWS-based API gateway. Your role will involve deploying key features such as integrating payment APIs with our WhatsApp front-end, enabling card payments through payment links, and facilitating cash payments. You'll be integrating partner APIs into our ecosystem and making them accessible to external clients through our WhatsApp-based front-end and fintech platforms.

Qualifications and requirements

You should have at least 2 years of experience in API development, with proficiency in Python, Java, and JavaScript. We are looking for someone experienced in developing cloud-based services, especially on AWS, including Lambdas, PostgreSQL DB, and API Gateway. Some DevOps experience is also necessary to manage deployments to production environments.

Desirable skills

If you're aiming to become an entrepreneur in the next 2-3 years, this is the perfect opportunity for you. We're committed to helping you immerse yourself in early-stage startup culture and rapidly learn how to establish a company, develop an MVP, achieve product-market fit, and secure funding from our investor network. We value team players who embrace a culture of solving problems collaboratively, are open to both giving and receiving feedback, and are committed to continuous learning and self-improvement.


We are open to supporting your success in this role by discussing potential sponsorships for online courses, books, and other educational resources. We offer flexible work hours, allowing you to work during your most creative times, though there will be certain requirements for daily check-ins with me. Also, happy to discuss bonus based on performance, either in cash or equity.
