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).

Fingerprint is seeking a senior backend engineer to strengthen the team, developing the device identification API serving around 1 billion requests per month with the best accuracy on the market.

We are interested in a fresh perspective on the technological problems in the field where we have to find patterns in high amounts of noisy data and help empower other developers to build safe and seamless online services via fast, reliable, scalable, distributed API.

What you will be doing:

  • Taking responsibility for end-to-end development of Identification API together with a team of several seasoned engineers, which includes architectural design, implementation, and long-term support of both product features and incremental improvements of accuracy and performance of algorithms underneath.
  • Communicating time estimates, issues, and technological challenges in a collaborative setting
  • Solve problems of relatively complex scope through general usage of standard programming concepts and principles, and application of own judgment

What you will need to be successful

  • BS/MS in CS or related field
  • 3+ years of demonstrated experience developing high-scale web backend systems
  • Hands-on experience in building distributed systems – not solely responsible for architecture, but also for writing code.
  • Excellent English - both written and verbal communication

Nice to Have

  • Production experience with Golang, AWS stack, and key-value storages like DynamoDB and Redis.
  • Experience using Data Analytics stack, column-based storages like Clickhouse, Data Visualisation like Apache Superset,
  • Experience with Data-intensive applications like anti-fraud systems, recommender systems, computational advertising, marketing analytics, informational retrieval, and fuzzy search.

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.
