Does working on a team focused on accelerating Remitly’s growth by focusing on improving the customer experience excite you?

To succeed in this role, you should enjoy being in a fast-paced startup environment and working hands-on with others across the company. You know how to make good short and long-term trade-offs to enable a quick test and learn cycle, while not sacrificing performance and user experience.

  • Kotlin, Scala, Go, PHP and eagerness to learn them.

What you will do:
