Full-Stack Engineer


Who we are.

GoalBased Investors (GBI) is an early-stage startup in the FinTech space. GBI has built a digital platform - Lasso - that helps individuals quickly build meaningful financial plans for life’s important goals and easily match with an expert – financial advisors - who can help make them successful. GBI believes that financial advice shouldn’t be hard to give or to get. Our mission is to lower the barriers on both sides, creating more access to financial planning and advice and setting up more effective, efficient conversations around financial goals.

GBI just closed a seed funding round and is looking to build out our team with individuals who can help us execute on a successful launch of our platform in late spring as well as on an ambitious product roadmap and client growth strategy.

What's the position.

We're looking for a full-stack engineer who can take the lead on our backend. Lasso is built on Python/Django, GraphQL, Postgres and Redis and is deployed as iPhone and iPad applications.

Our primary technical challenges.

  • Managing a large set of third party API integrations.
  • Scaling to support a robust community of individuals and financial advisors.
  • Performing sophisticated financial optimizations.
  • Using data analytics techniques to derive insights.

Ideal candidates will.

  • Be fundamentally full stack. Although you will spend most of your time working on our backend, we need folks who are flexible enough to jump into all parts of the stack, especially web.
  • Have a strong background in data modeling and system architecture.
  • Have experience building integrations with financial institutions.
  • Have strong intellectual curiosity. We are looking for partners to make it easier for individuals to grow wealth by putting more expertise inside the product and service.

What we offer.

  • Professional development. Gain lots of firsthand experience across all facets of an organization.
  • Fast-moving, agile culture.
