About Found

The self-employed workforce is a rapidly growing, resilient, and colorful 60 million Americans. But self-employment comes with its own set of challenges: navigating taxes, accounting, bookkeeping, and business banking are just a few. That’s where we come in.

Found is building tools that give self-employed people the security and peace of mind that has historically only been possible at big corporations. We’re a business bank account that automates taxes and expense tracking because we believe small business owners should spend more time doing what they love and less time on their business finances.

We’re looking for kind, resourceful, and passionate people to join us in building the safety net for self-employment.

About this role

Thanks for your interest in Found! Our engineering team is responsible for taking products from ideation to being used by tens of thousands of users every week. We’re responsible for everything from building the product to technical operations (and everything in between such as getting better with outages, improving reliability, and reducing tech debt…)

We are looking for a Software Engineer - Reliability who knows how to balance moving fast while moving safely, understands (and loves) SLOs and SLAs, and has experience scaling systems from 1 to 10 to 100.

Some recent team accomplishments include: 

  • Scaling (successfully) our request volume by 100% Month over Month (every month for the last 2 years). 

  • Designing and launching model serving infrastructure in Google Cloud for our risk systems. 

  • Building and maintaining the infrastructure to support hundreds of deployments per month across a team of 30 engineers. 

Day to day, you will:

  • Design and implement developer tooling that makes deployments safer, reproducible, and easy to slowly rollout (or rollback). 

  • Architect (with the rest of the team) the future version(s) of our key systems taking into account order of magnitude scaling every year.

  • Partner with company operations and engineering to achieve and maintain compliance standards such as PCI and SOC2.

  • Add or improve introspection for all our key systems, identify scaling bottlenecks, and work with engineering on resolving them.

  • Own shared services such as feature flagging, experimentation, in-app messaging, etc.

  • Mentor engineering on how to design reliable, fault-tolerant, systems and easy-to-use runbooks for when things go wrong.

To thrive in this role, you have:

  • Experience writing production code in Ruby, Go, or Python.

  • Experience working in a public cloud environment.

  • Proven track record of scaling and troubleshooting production systems or services.

  • Strong fundamental knowledge of SLAs and SLOs, as well as ideas around how to implement them at a fast-paced company.

  • Deep understanding of Kubernetes internals such as coredns/kubedns, vertical and horizontal pod autoscaling.

You may also have:

  • Experience with opentelemetry, statsd, or Prometheus.

  • Working knowledge of compliance frameworks like PCI and SOC2.

  • Experience with infrastructure as code (Terraform, cloudformation, etc).

  • Familiarity with troubleshooting using tcpdump or wireshark.

  • Interest in financial services, accounting, and/or self-employment.
