About Alloy.co

Alloy is a service for reducing false positives during the KYC process. Alloy’s API and dashboard helps financial institutions integrate multiple sources of data and custom CIP rules to both increase the number of customers that can be successfully onboarded without manual review and improve transparency and efficiency into the process.

Job Description

We’re the leading provider of digital identity management and transaction fraud detection. We support innovative FinTech companies and top tier banks to manage KYC, AML, and other components of ongoing client account monitoring. Alloy’s API enables its clients to access over 50 third party data sources in real-time to improve decision-making and streamline client experiences. We're backed by venture capital firms that have taken countless companies to IPO like Bessemer Venture Partners, Primary Venture Partners, Eniac Ventures, and others. We are well-positioned to bring on incredibly talented individuals who can help take us to the next level!

What You Will Do

Alloy's product can be roughly divided into two sides—a Django/React frontend web app and a Node.js backend for APIs, data processing, evaluations. We're looking for help maintaining and building out features in the backend that help with fraud detection and classification of transactions, data ingestion, integrating with new clients and 3rd parties, and platform-level initiatives.

  • Architect new features
    • Work with clients, understand their requirements, and work with a Solutions Architect and a Product Manager to spec out beautiful new exciting features and tools our clients are asking for.
  • Build them
    • You are fully empowered to start with the database design and own the entire development path finishing with API endpoints, triggered events, or manipulating data in our Postgres DB. You'll write good code that brings your features to life. Once they're tested, peer-reviewed, and QA'ed, they'll be deployed to our production environment.
  • Bug fixes
    • What went wrong? How can we make sure it never happens again? We live for the blameless root-cause analysis after getting things back up and running for our clients as soon as possible!
  • Support the team
    • Keep the customer success crew in the loop for a feature timeline. Run a SQL query for operations to determine this month's billing amounts. Teach engineers about a new technology you've been learning about. Mentor your coworkers. Help out where you can!
  • You decide! It's a small team—the definition of the role is somewhat flexible and will grow to reflect your own strengths and interests!

What We Are Looking For

  • 5+ years real-world experience working as a software developer on production code.
  • While we like to think of ourselves as "platform-agnostic" in our hiring process, we expect that someone in this role will be familiar with or willing to learn our existing stack:
    • Node.js (the language you'll be working in)
    • Experience working with and integrating third-party APIs
    • PostgreSQL - Our main data store.
    • AWS (we do have a dedicated DevOps team but it's good to at least have a passing knowledge of how your code will be running in production)
    • Unix command line
  • Teamwork experience!
    • We're open to people whose experience is mainly on personal projects and/or contracting but we'd really like someone who has experience working collaboratively with a team.
  • Related degrees are great but we care more about your coding and communication skills than a diploma.

Benefits and Perks!

  • Unlimited PTO and we are remote until 2021*
  • Company Paid Medical, Dental, Vision Benefits
  • 401k with 100% match up to 4%
  • $500 to just set up your WFH space - a one time thing
  • Annual Professional Development Budget
  • Annual Citi Bike Membership
  • Monthly Commuter Budget 
  • Monthly stipend for groceries from Public Goods
  • Weekly lunch allowance on Seamless
  • Contribution to Lifetime, NYSC, or ClassPass
  • Four Free Therapy Sessions
