Splitwise is looking for a Backend Software Engineer to join our growing team. At Splitwise, backend engineers are generalists who work on public-facing features, design and implement the APIs that power our web and mobile apps, and work on important parts of our infrastructure, including database scaling and performance, analytics, operations, and security. You’ll be helping millions of people share expenses with each other and help take the stress out of awkward conversations about money.


We use Ruby on Rails to power our APIs, and run our infrastructure on a mixture of Amazon Web Services and Heroku. We deploy many times per day, building new features while maintaining backwards compatibility with older versions of our app. As a company, we believe in writing code that is reliable and maintainable, and in testing that code (even in production) to make sure we can depend on it for years to come.


This job reports to Splitwise’s co-founder Ryan. We’re considering junior, mid-level, and senior candidates who are comfortable working in Ruby. You'll collaborate with other engineers (as well as our product and business team) to implement new features and help Splitwise scale to tens of millions of users. We're currently a small team of about 10 people – you will make a huge difference.
