About Check Technologies

Check is a payroll-as-a-service API that lets you embed payroll directly in your vertical SaaS, HR, or time-tracking platform.

Job Description

Engineering is the core of Check. We believe payroll can and should be easy-to-use financial software, but getting there requires serious and sustained engineering effort. For our efforts, there is the deep satisfaction that comes from delivering people's paychecks. We are excited to bring on a new software engineer who will have an outsized impact on our systems and business along multiple fronts.
For this role, we are seeking an individual with strong, full-stack software engineering skills, but also with a curiosity for systems, an entrepreneurial mindset, and high integrity. We believe that someone with this combination will unlock new ideas and solutions for our product and thrive in our team.

In this role, you will:

    • Ship code that calculates, transfers, and files taxes accurately and on time on a daily basis
    • Distill the complexities of payroll into simple APIs for developers to use to build payroll
    • Build frontend and backend components that improve customer integrations
    • Influence the culture, values, and processes of a growing engineering team
    • Communicate ideas and specifications through detailed, precise writing
    • Work with our payroll ops, design, sales, and legal functions
    • Commit on your first day, and deploy code continuously
    • Support developers at customer companies
    • Teach and learn from other engineers
    • Interview prospective candidates

Many backgrounds could fit this role, but ideal candidates will have:

    • Built and scaled production web applications on the frontend and/or backend
    • Production relational database experience
    • Demonstrated product and design sensibilities
    • Strong software development fundamentals
    • Excellent verbal and written communication

We use:

    • Python (type-annotated) and Django for our API
    • React and TypeScript for our frontends
    • Postgres for our database
    • AWS for our cloud infrastructure
    • GitLab for issue tracking and CI/CD
Our team is distributed across the US, with hubs in New York City, San Francisco, and Atlanta.
