The average American has over $155,000 in household debt. While fin-tech lenders and for-profit banks are happy to issue high interest loans to consumers, Credit Unions have quietly existed as not for profit lenders that offer lower cost loans.
Clutch develops software to turn Credit Unions into FinTech lenders and leverage their balance sheets to responsibly lend to over 130M Americans. We’re seeking a Software Engineer to ensure Credit Unions are successful at utilizing our software in order to make borrowing less costly for the average American.
We are building a diverse and international team with the most innovative professionals in their field of expertise for each position we open. Our Software Engineering team is based in Brazil and Argentina, and our opportunities are fully remote.
Business centric approach to engineering
Our engineers are equally product & company owners. We're a small team it's important to understand the why and how of things in order to execute on them.
Fullstack for now ...
Our whole team is currently working fullstack. We want to make sure that we don’t develop our front-end and back-end in isolation. Instead, we want all our engineers to think from our customers’ perspective.
Our main stacks are: TypeScript (both back-end and front-end), React, Python and AWS. We are not looking for an expert in all of these stacks, instead, we appreciate the ones with a background in some of them, and willing to LEARN \o/
