Careers at Monit

Backend Staff SDE

Monit

At Monit, we’re building a platform that serves two audiences. Our small business owner platform consists of tools to help businesses understand their cash flow trends and financial position, like a digital CFO. The banker-facing platform consists of insights and analytics about the small businesses in a banker’s portfolio, along with suggested actions those bankers may wish to take that would benefit those small businesses.

Where we are today

In 2022, we brought all engineering and product development in-house, and completed several major changes to our platform as we grew to understand our users and customers better. This included migrating all CI/CD from CircleCI to GitHub Actions; migrating all apps from Beanstalk to ECS + Fargate; and moving identity from inside the application layer into an outer layer of the architectural onion. We also managed to build a few nifty new features along the way.

As we look look ahead to 2023, we’re excited to shift from replacing things to building new things.

How we work

What our stack looks like

Where and how you fit in

As a Staff Engineer on a small team, your opinion carries a lot of weight, and how you express your views shapes our culture. We expect you to be able to make good, well-reasoned architectural decisions. We expect you to make defensible tradeoffs between tactical delivery and strategic direction.

To some extent, we’re still in the “building Lego bricks” phase of our company and product: the domain is revealing itself to us as we talk to sales prospects and existing customers. If you value composability and orthogonality in your implementation and architecture, you’ll probably appreciate how we create software, and how we model our respective domains.

We care a lot about getting our initial Lego bricks mostly right, and there’s a huge amount of work still to be done on both the front- and back-ends in this regard, for both sides of the Monit platform.

Culture has building blocks, too. Like the software components that comprise the product, culture is how we build our future, and we believe in getting its foundations right, too, because culture carries the weight of all that is to come. As an early, senior engineering leader, one of your responsibilities will be to help us navigate the seas of uncertainty and ambiguity while also setting the tone for the less experienced engineers.
