Seasoned Software Engineer


February 17, 2021

MotoRefi is a ~2.5 year old company that saves people money through an online, transparent, and customer-friendly auto loan refinance process. We partner with credit unions and community banks to offer competitive rates from trustworthy organizations. While our core business continues to grow aggressively, we are also expanding into new ways to improve our customers' financial health. We recently raised our Series A.

About The Job

Our growth and expansion means that our consumer web application needs to be highly polished, yet designed with sufficient flexibility to add new products, customize workflows, and cobrand with our partners. We also develop and maintain internal applications that provide significant leverage to our operations teammates. The backend that runs all of this is evolving toward an event sourced architecture that supports the highly asynchronous and multi-modal workflows we are automating. Our current stage provides a seasoned full stack engineer with a healthy mix of familiar and novel challenges, and a high degree of agency to solve them.
