WHO WE ARE
After the 2008 financial crash, the international financial and business environment is more regulated than ever. The amount of required paperwork has increased exponentially. The deals are being blocked, the accounts are being frozen, the business is often getting paralyzed.
Project Plato was born in 2015 as an autonomous R&D unit working for Dolfin, an established British investment company, with the aim of automating sensitive business operations. We are a young and ambitious team frustrated by inefficiency of existing solutions.
5 years later, with the help of our software solutions, Dolfin was able to have
$4.1bn in client assets under management
$650m monthly brokerage flow
10x increased speed of customer and employee onboarding
30x more efficiency of its compliance officers
But this is only the beginning. Our mission is to help companies and business professionals around the world communicate with each other and do business with trust and simplified paperwork.
OUR TECH STACK
As a serious, business-oriented company, we develop our solutions exclusively in COBOL.
Just kidding! We use modern and diverse IT infrastructure. Our solutions are web-based, with backends in Golang andPython and frontends in Typescript and React. Data storages include PostgreSQL, DynamoDB and Amazon S3. The infrastructure consists of multiple backend services managed via Kubernetes/Helm, integrated with various AWS and third-party services. We also use Google Bazel, a secure and robust build system.
We strive to make our development process predictable, change-proof and well-organized to achieve the fastest possible product delivery pace without compromising reliability.
We are still small: Project Plato is less than 15 people in total but we are planning to grow to 20 soon. As part of the Project Plato back-end team, you will be working closely with Oleg and another 3 senior engineers. Oleg is our lead backend engineer who has been part of the team since 2015 when we established our office in Amsterdam. We are a group that values trust, growth, agility, mutual respect, taking ownership, and learning from each other through a culture of open feedback.
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR
You have a math or computer science background. No diplomas needed, but knowing your graphs and big-Os is a must.
You know your way around web services. Parlez-vous HTTP? Veux-tu un cookie?
You know well at least TWO of: Golang, Python, C++, Java/C#, Typescript.
You are familiar with modern build systems (especially code generation), Unix-based operating systems, Docker/Kubernetes and cloud services.
You are a self-learner. You can analyze the code and documentation yourself, and you can ask questions when needed. Our team is small and focused, and we do not have spare time for thorough tutoring :(
You are passionate about quality and reliability. This is not a social media app startup, we deal with big money and strict regulations.
You are able to take honest and direct feedback and openly discuss the problems.
You are not afraid of complex problem domains.
Knowledge of frontend technologies is a plus.
