Engineering · Full-time · Remote

We are a fast-growing and well-funded FinTech startup that has the rare opportunity to build a successful company and do some good in the world at the same time. We are looking for an exceptional mid-senior level backend engineer to join our product team. This role will be focused on engineering high-quality back end product feature solutions for the Copper mobile consumer application.

Did you know that nearly 80% of adults in the U.S. live paycheck to paycheck? The problem starts early: there are 35 million teenagers in the U.S. that are not well-served by current banks and receive almost no financial education. For parents and teens, navigating the conversation around finances is both daunting and frustrating, making money the #1 cause of conflict between parents and teens within the home.

Copper banking is the first of its kind, all-digital banking platform for teenagers and their parents. Copper teaches teens how to make smart financial decisions by developing patterned behaviors in a digital experience. Come join us to make a meaningful difference in people's lives!
