Solve Finance is an independent debt advisor transforming an industry built on lead-generation and hidden-cost business models.

We are seeking an experienced Tech Lead to guide technical decision-making and help build our product to scale.

Our current stack is all Javascript (Jamstack with React on the front to Node on the back) We leverage Firebase and Google Cloud Platform infrastructure to keep everything humming and we take every opportunity to integrate a DevOps philosophy into what we do.

While we are currently advertising for Tech Lead, candidates who are interested in moving into a Head of Engineering are also encouraged to apply. Above all, we are looking for mission-driven candidates who want to use their skills for meaningful work. Join us in delivering back over $100 billion of savings per year into the pockets of US households.

Our values drive our interactions with users and each other:

  1. Ownership and trust - we own key deliverables and trust teammates within their role
  2. Transparency - we believe that we can make the best decisions by being open and honest with each other
  3. Be smarter, get smarter - we are always looking for ways to learn from our experiences
  4. Encourage diversity, uniqueness, and idiosyncrasy - we believe there is power in differences and we are a stronger team by being diverse
  5. Take our mission seriously and ourselves lightly - we have fun and don’t sweat the small stuff
