Human Interest is on a mission to ensure that people in all lines of work have access to retirement benefits. 

Nearly half of all working Americans are not saving enough for their future. Too often it’s because they are employed by a company that doesn’t offer a retirement plan. Human Interest is changing that by making it affordable and accessible for small and medium-sized businesses to offer employees a path to financial independence through retirement savings.

We’re a high-growth tech company changing the retirement industry. We’ve raised $500M and are backed by leading investors. Most recently, by funding from BlackRock as well as many other top investors: TPG (The Rise Fund) with SoftBank led our Series D, Glynn Capital, NewView Capital, USVP, Wing, Uncork, and others.

As an engineering organization, we seek to redefine the retirement services space with software that drives toward an effortless, efficient, scalable, and highly reliable cloud based experience. 

We:

  • Value continuous improvement - we care about documentation, security, durability, not just throwing features over the wall.
  • Help each other be better engineers - we leave things better than we found it.
  • Aspire to collaborate seamlessly - we ensure our software is improving the customer experience.

As a member of the Core Backend team, you will get to help build out our next generation horizontally scalable financial engine. You will collaborate with domain experts to design, build, test, and own systems and processes for servicing 401(k) plans and making our customers happy. As reliability and performance are key to earning our customers’ trust, you will build robust systems that are observable, maintainable, and scalable. Joining our team requires passion for ownership - after all, this is what enables our users’ success.

  • Develop ownership over critical retirement workflows and domains
  • Make informed engineering tradeoff decisions

  • Participate in development life cycle activities like analysis, design, coding, testing and production release

What you bring to the role

  • Minimum 7 years of professional experience building and maintaining backend software
  • Experience building scalable backend technologies
  • Experience scaling database platforms (Nosql, SQL)
  • Strong desire to learn, exchange feedback and grow - from our internal legacy and futuristic technical designs, to retirement domains and workflows that are critical for our business.
  • Ability to think creatively, and share knowledge with others
  • Ability to write understandable, testable code with an eye towards maintainability
  • Proactive and empathetic mindset - you love to roll up your sleeves to fix problems for our customers
