Job Description

Is it for me?

If the following sounds exciting to you, then yes:

Empathetic Problem Solving: Appreciate the financial hardships faced by individuals living paycheck to paycheck, and a genuine desire to make a positive difference in their lives.

Collaborative Innovation: Build with our multinational cross-functional teams to identify and address their pain points effectively while gaining greater visibility across the business.

Escape the Repetition: Crush the monotony of doing the same tasks repeatedly, and instead, learn the intricacies, understand the nuances, and then harness the power of automation to liberate your time for more intellectually stimulating innovation.

Product Ownership: Drive end-to-end product development, from ideation to implementation and maintenance through data-driven decisions.

Continuous Learning: Expand your knowledge and stay at the forefront of technology and innovation in the AI-driven landscape. Not through certifications but rather real-world hands-on experimentation.

Simplicity over Complexity: Favour simplicity to ensure our services remain reliable and maintainable and avoid optimising problems that shouldn’t even exist in the first place.

What about the tech?

All our code is in Git. Our services are written in Go and we make extensive use of SQL with both Postgres and duckDB. We do not use an ORM. We use AWS but our architecture remains cloud agnostic. Frontends are written in Svelte with JS and SCSS with a sprinkle of Swift and Java for native where low level device access is needed.

There’s no need to know everything from day one! If you are stronger on one side than the other it is fine. Don’t worry if you’re more familiar with other languages or frameworks so long as you’re keen on learning we can help you get up to speed.

What’s Involved?

A simple 4 step process that takes no longer than 5 hours and you’ll have an outcome in 20 days.

  • A problem solving challenge on some open source code, no more than 3 hours
  • Deep dive session discussing how you approached (1), no more than 1 hour
  • Meet with the team and learn more about our culture, no more than 1 hour
  • Offer, with a salary up to RM 8k depending on demonstrated performance during the process
