We work primarily with PHP but have started to extract smaller services using Node.js and Python.

  • Exceptional ability to work anywhere in the technical stack, delivering quality code both on the frontend and backend

  • An insatiable appetite for learning new approaches, technologies and architectures and maturity to apply these judiciously

  • Fluency in any backend server language, and expertise in relational databases and schema design

  • Strong motivation to drive impact by making product improvements

  • Can be autonomous and self-driven

  • Get inspired on a daily basis, think of new ideas and like to share them with others

  • Interest in working in a very cross-functional team that touches many of the core systems and user flows at Investopedia.
