We’re going after a multi-trillion dollar opportunity to deliver transparency and shake up the world of consumer payments.

We’re looking for a Data Engineer to join our small but mighty team of passionate and collaborative individuals. We launched Point publicly in November and we’ve already been ranked as a top finance app in the App Store, processed millions in transaction volume, and cultivated an enthusiastic community of early adopters. Additionally, we're backed by top investors like Peter Thiel (Valar Ventures) and Y Combinator.
