Overview

As a software engineer, you’d help define, build, deploy, and iterate on the core product. Our code is primarily in functional-style Java 8 and JavaScript. Other technologies we use include PostgreSQL, Spring, jOOQ, Dropwizard, Elasticsearch, and React.

You should:

Be a strong developer experienced in writing clean, production-quality code
Enjoy collaborating with others to define the product, rather than just implementing what others tell you to
Be mission-oriented and want to work on something with significant impact on the world
Be excited about working on a small team and helping shape its culture as we grow

About Segovia

We’re working to end extreme poverty by making it faster, safer, and easier to pay anyone, anywhere in the emerging markets.

Trillions of dollars are spent every year on global anti-poverty programs, including over $400 billion given directly to the extreme poor. But these programs often rely on outdated, insecure, and incompatible payment systems. We’re changing that.

Segovia’s platform is already being used to deliver critical payments in challenging environments around the world. In Liberia, for example, Save the Children is using Segovia to distribute relief funds to communities hit by Ebola. In East Africa, GiveDirectly has been using Segovia to put working capital in the hands of the extreme poor.

We’re a small, venture-backed, NY-based team hiring exceptional people in NY and SF who share our mission of using technology to help the world’s poorest. We have competitive salary and stock options, flexible hours, unlimited vacation, and great medical, dental, and vision benefits.
