About TomoCredit

Credit Redefined – We help young adults build and establish good credit through next-gen financial technology.

Job Description

It is difficult to build credit if you don't have credit. Tomocredit is trying to solve this chicken-egg problem by ditching credit history altogether. Instead, we use different sources in our underwriting to gauge your financial health. We offer a consumer credit card that, over time, will help you build your credit history. We are not a financial services company - we are a data company. Data we get helps us make the credit market more accessible to those new to it. Our small but talented team of problem solvers has grown 2x in the last half year and we are looking forward to doubling again this year. We are constantly working on finding new and better ways to help our customers succeed through responsible fiscal behavior and we're looking for people like you to help shape tomorrow at Tomo. 


We're looking for an experienced backend engineer with strong system building skills to join our small and creative team. Being a member of a small team, you will have many responsibilities and own multiple projects. Ideal candidate is comfortable working in a fast-paced, creative and collaborative environment.


Since you would be joining us early in our journey, you will be intimately involved in every aspect of the product with a significant say when it comes to technical decisions. You will own projects from concept to completion. You will be working alongside talented software engineers in executing your projects.



What you will do


  • Work with the design and product teams to launch new features
  • Own a project from start to finish (we value responsible engineers with strong work ethic)
  • Assist our support team with technical issues (we are small and want to make sure our users love us)
  • Help QA our releases to ensure they’re ready to ship (to ensure we have a truly amazing product)
  • Be happy!



What you bring to TomoCredit team


  • Several years of working experience in Node.js (minimum 2 years)
  • Strong Javascript skills
  • Experience with AWS services (EC2, EBS, RDS, Cloudwatch, Lambda)
  • Experience working with Postgres (or any SQL database)
  • Experience with building RESTful and GraphQL APIs.
  • Natural ability to diagnose and debug complex technical issues
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Track record in building relationships and integrations with tech partners
  • Yearning to learn new skills, tech, tools.
  • Bonus: Experience with Apollo framework
  • Bonus: Experience in fintech is highly valuable.
  • Your creativity and ability to think out of the box.
  • Your passion in building cool cutting-edge products.



Why TomoCredit?


Building strong culture is extremely important to us. In order to do so, we strive to make every member of the team happy. That's why we offer a generous benefits package for a small startup.

  • Salary: Negotiable based on experience 
  • Insurance: Medical, Dental and Vision benefits.
  • Equity: We're growing rapidly and we want to share our future success/ financial upside with you. We offer a significant ownership stake in TomoCredit for all employees.
