Senior Software Engineer (Data platform)
Sequence is reinventing the quote-to-revenue category, building a flexible toolkit to help B2B companies to scale their revenue infrastructure,
The team behind Sequence has decades of experience building and operating category-defining marketplace, machine learning, fintech, and enterprise software companies. We are no ordinary start-up; the maturity of our leadership and technology means we are operating at an fast pace. This is a fantastic opportunity to be a part of the next wave of fintech innovation, doing your best work with talented, ambitious and creative teammates.
Sequence is the ultimate billing and revenue stack for B2B companies. We help our customers design and iterate on their pricing and revenue flows, so they can stay completely focused on their mission without worrying about billing.
At the end of your career, we want you to look back at your time with Sequence and say it was the best job you ever had.
We’re looking for senior product engineers with strong backend skills to help us build financial tools for modern, fast scaling technology companies.
What you'll do:
🚀 Create a world class product experience. You'll help make the experience of implementing and working with the Sequence product second to none. We believe our billing engine is the most flexible and comprehensive out there, however complex financial processes can be challenging to model and expose in an approachable and intuitive way. You'll help us figure out the best ways to go about this, building a backend for our own product, alongside a first-class API experience for our customers.
🧭 Guide product direction: We believe that all engineering decisions are product decisions, and vice versa. You'll collaborate with data, product and design to choose what we work on and why, and help build Sequence to be the best product and business it can be
💻 Shape our data infrastructure: You’ll own the data platform powering the ingestion and processing usage data at scale, as well as a growing suite of data products – and directly contribute to building those products. You’ll drive key architectural and technology decisions, with direct impact on critical customer workflows.
👭 Help our small team have outsized impact. We want to build an early engineering culture that values collaboration, learning and teamwork. You'll play an integral role in shaping our product, culture and ways of working to help us achieve this.
This is a great fit if you...
✅ Enjoy being hands-on with a focus on writing code and shipping things. We have a long list of things we want to build.
✅ Are happy operating across the stack, switching between data infrastructure work and core product engineering. Our services are built in Kotlin, though you don't need experience in that language to join us, many of our engineers have done the same and enjoyed the challenge of learning a new set of skills.
✅ Want to work as part of a small, multi-disciplinary team and collaborate closely with others.
✅ Want to work on something new. The biggest product and company decisions still lie ahead of us.
✅ Enjoy the uncertainty and unpredictability that comes with an early stage company.
✅ Are happy to learn deeply about our customers, the problems they face, and work with them to figure out solutions
This won’t be the right role if you…
👎 You enjoy structure and only staying within your area of expertise. We’re a small team early on the journey and things change quickly as we learn more
👎 Want a traditional product team set up, with a predictable roadmap, clearly scoped out tickets provided for you, and so on
👎 You prefer a slower pace. We're tackling real problems for our customers today, so we need to move quickly.
👎 Want all of the benefits that come with an larger, established tech company
We're fully remote within +/- 5 hours of GMT, or you can work from our Hub in central London— whatever you prefer.
