Role overview

Everyone at Forge is clever and relentless, taking on multiple functions and responsibilities. Even if you're applying for a specialized role, we love candidates who have high general intelligence, with the potential to take on evolving and growing responsibilities over time. It's proved very effective for us -- we've tripled our team and more than 10xed our volume in the last 3 years.Β πŸ“ˆπŸ‘

We're looking for engineers with 6+ years of experience at a rapidly growing startup, or cutting edge teams at a larger tech company, or building systems and technology for financial services firms πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»πŸ’±

In Summary

  • Architect and implement the system that transacts hundreds of millions of dollars a year πŸ—οΈ
  • Build technology used by almost every investor, employee, and company in Silicon Valley
  • Take on massive amounts of ownership and responsibility, and feel like an owner of the company and our product

Technical Challenges

  • Forge's systems process tens of millions in dollars in transactions every month (growing quickly!), and our live production systems are subject to strict requirements when it comes to speed, reliability, and security. Doing this while delivering a delightful experience to all of our users is a challenge we relish.
  • We also been able to balance these stringent requirements with our desire to be agile and productive through intelligent abstractions, investments in our infrastructure, and our affinity for functional programming and static typing.

Projects You Might Work On

  • Work with another engineer and our business team to automate the process of matchmaking our incoming streams of Asks and Bids.
  • Build out our new API, which allows wealth management platforms to integrate with our platform, enabling more users to get exposure to pre-IPO investments, or to get liquidity on their holdings.πŸ’Έ
  • Setup a system to allow us to manage our outbound email campaigns, advertising spend, and transactional email to help more users convert to transacting customers.
  • Set up a sophisticated security permissions and audit logging system which will let us keep track of all mutations happening on our systems, letting us move quickly without having to be concerned about data leaks or admin mistakes.πŸ”

Engineering Culture and Process

  • We believe in transparency and operate as a group of peers who respect ideas, talent, and initiative.
  • We have an engineering strategy session once every few weeks where we realign our priorities and map out milestones for all our initiatives.

At Forge, we strive to design & build smart so each engineer can have a massive impact on the business. If you enjoy functional programming, domain modeling, backend architecture design, and shipping client-facing products you're a perfect fit for this role.Β
