Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2024

Fingerprint empowers developers to stop online fraud at the source.

We work on turning radical new ideas in the fraud detection space into reality. Our products are developer-focused and our clients range from solo developers to publicly traded companies. We are a globally dispersed, 100% remote company with a strong open-source focus. Our flagship open-source project is FingerprintJS (20K stars on GitHub).

We have raised $77M and are backed by Craft Ventures (previously invested in Tesla, Facebook, Airbnb ), Nexus Venture Partners (previously invested in Postman, Apollo.io, MinIO, Druva) and Uncorrelated Ventures (previously invested in Redis, Rollbar & Gradle).

We’re looking for a Senior Backend Engineer to be the founding member of a new engineering team that will focus on building a global scale device intelligence network that helps our customers make fraud prevention decisions quickly.

This role will be working closely with stakeholders on an alpha product and adapting to changing requirements, delivering quick results for a faster time-to-market.

Location: North/South American time zones

What we’re looking for:

  • 5+ years of Golang experience
  • Extensive experience using large-scale databases like ClickHouse
  • Experience with data transformation tools like dbt and the ability to analyze high volumes of data in a DWH system to answer key questions/solve customer problems.
  • Experience with AWS container technologies like ECS/Fargate
  • Proven experience in API architecture and implementation
  • Experience designing and maintaining scalable public APIs
  • Ability to thrive in ambiguous environments where you get to work directly with stakeholders with minimal guidance and direction
  • Strong communication skills (English) and collaboration skills
  • Located in North or South American timezones

Ideally, we would love to have someone who also has:

  • Previous Experience with queueing and streaming systems (SQS, Kafka)
  • Concurrent programming experience

Compensation Range

$180-220k For cash compensation, we set standard ranges for all US based roles based on function, level and geographic location, benchmarked against similar stage growth companies. In order to be compliant with local legislation, as well as to provide greater transparency to candidates, we share salary ranges on all job postings regardless of desired hiring location. Final offer amounts are determined by multiple factors including geographic location as well as candidate experience and expertise, and may vary from the amounts listed above.

Offers vary depending on, but not limited to, relevant experience, education, certifications/licenses, skills, training, and market conditions.

Due to regulatory and security reasons, there’s a small number of countries where we cannot have Fingerprint teammates based. Additionally, because Fingerprint is an all-remote company and people can join our workforce from almost any country, we do not sponsor visas. Fingerprint teammates need to be authorized to work from their home location.

We are dedicated to creating an inclusive work environment for everyone. We embrace and celebrate the unique experiences, perspectives and cultural backgrounds that each employee brings to our workplace. Fingerprint strives to foster an environment where our employees feel respected, valued and empowered, and our team members are at the forefront in helping us promote and sustain an inclusive workplace. We highly encourage people from underrepresented groups in tech to apply.
