Are you ready to join the startup changing the way workers access financial services?
At Quansa, this is what we work for everyday. Our mission is to help workers save money on financial products and work free of stress about finances.
Quansa links the payroll data of thousands of employees with banks, fintechs and other financial institutions, changing the way financial products are delivered and priced by banks and fintechs. Just like an health insurance broker, Quansa negotiates on behalf of employees and can offer solutions that employees cannot get anywhere else - keeping them financially healthy!
We're a Latin American company born in Sillicon Valley (@Stanford University), with operations in Chile and Brazil and growing.
We wanna know you if you…
  • love our mission
  • your eyes shine at the thought of building innovative products
  • are a team player and a problem solver
  • are not afraid of candid feedback

What is this position about?

We’re looking for a creative and motivated backend engineer. You’ll be a part of the Quansa engineering team, working with the best coding and architectural practices to build an intuitive, high performing product that makes life easier for our users.
About you, our next rockstar addition to the team:
You want to be a part of a team that is innovative and mission-driven, working to improve the financial well-being of millions of workers in the region.
You love shipping new things rapidly. You will obsess over our product and constantly think of ways to make it better. You are a great listener but are willing to speak up when you see something that needs to be fixed. You are not afraid of saying “I don’t know yet” and love the thrill of figuring things out.
What you'll do:
You'll be responsible for writing code (yes, tests are included), making design decisions that will affect thousands of users, deploy and operate your developments and finally, support clients and internal stakeholders.
We love to try new approaches and technologies, and you'll have your fair share of experimenting.
Sooner than later you'll have to debug something in production and come up with a stable solution in record time (our users will thank you 😉 and the team will be eternally grateful)

Experience and Qualifications:

Note: if you are passionate about what we're building, are willing to work hard, but simply don't meet some of the requirements below, please don't let that discourage you from applying.
  • 2+ years of experience as a backend engineer
  • You have developed apis or services in Nodejs (with ES5/6) or TypeScript
  • You have worked with database engines including NoSQL and SQL
  • You been part of product development usgin at least one of the following approaches - monoliths, microservices or lambdas
  • You value working under best practices such as Clean Code, TDD, etc.

Nice to have

  • Previous startup experience
  • You love, as much as we do, Uncle Bob and Testing
