We are Belvo, a financial API platform for Latam that enables any company or developer to access and interpret their end-users' financial information. We are turning the rich and diverse Latam financial ecosystem into a set of developer-friendly tools and APIs.

We’re a highly-technical, passionate and driven team. We have offices in Barcelona, Mexico City and São Paulo and some of us work remotely.

We are tackling a very challenging problem: connecting fintech innovators with legacy financial infrastructure. We strive to go beyond the limits of what is possible today and to do so in an elegant and developer-first way.

Our tech stack:

  • We're building our platform using modern technologies, putting the focus on reliability and long-term maintainability
  • We primarily use Python on the backend. We use battle-tested technologies such as Django, and we are heavy users of Python's asyncio for some parts of our stack
  • We use Javascript, Vue.js and Sass on the frontend.

Your challenge:

The experience team is building applications and services that expose end-users financial information through a set of public-facing, easy-to-use APIs. In addition to that, we take care of the Developer Experience through documentation, SDKs, examples, and other developer-facing tools.

  • Lead the architecture, design, and implementation of Backend services and APIs powering Belvo FinTech infrastructure.
  • Coordinate technical execution with other team members. Envision solutions collaboratively and coordinate their execution as a team, addressing technical and coordination issues.
  • Mentor other engineers and be a force multiplier.
  • Build excellent documentation, SDKs, client libraries. Continuously improve the “developer experience” of Belvo’s platform.
  • Be customer-focused, think as a user of our APIs. Proactively tackle potential improvements and customer pain points.
  • Carefully manage API retro compatibility, document API changes, and implement deprecation plans.
  • Implement automated quality assurance and monitoring modules

You can be part of the gang if:

  • 6+ years of experience as a Software Engineer, of which 2+ as a tech lead
  • Strong experience designing and developing RESTful APIs
  • Strong professional experience with Python and Django.
  • Willingness to solve challenging problems

Amazing if:

  • Fintech and SaaS past experience
  • Relevant programming knowledge in other languages such as Javascript, Java, PHP, Ruby or Go.
  • Experience building large-scale platforms with global reach.
