Join a leading fintech company that’s democratizing finance for all.

Robinhood was founded on a simple idea: that our financial markets should be accessible to all. With customers at the heart of our decisions, Robinhood is lowering barriers and providing greater access to financial information. Together, we are building products and services that help create a financial system everyone can participate in.

As we continue to build...

We’re seeking curious thinkers looking to co-author the next chapters of our story. Joining now means helping shape our vision, structures and systems; playing a key-role as we launch into our ambitious future.

About the team:

The preferred location for this position is in or around Robinhood's offices in Menlo Park, CA or Seattle, WA or New York City, NY with in-office work capabilities, as may be required by management, but remote work in limited geographies within the U.S. may be considered. Check with your recruiter for more information.

The Load and Fault team at Robinhood, within the broader infrastructure org, builds out a platform to empower general engineering at Robinhood. Using live market data, engineers are able to truly simulate the load on the products the develop. With a complex and distributed system, engineers can test the capacity of their systems, the load it can handle, and ensure their products remain reliable for the future!

We are hiring a Senior Software Engineer to join the team and help bring that vision to a reality.

What you’ll do day-to-day:

  • Design large-scale systems within the team, making the right tradeoffs for risk and long-term maintainability
  • Set up and drive technical directions of the project while mentoring and up-leveling junior engineers on the team.
  • Supporting core backend systems for the team and helping build out new greenfield initiatives.
  • Partner cross functionally to ensure teams are set up for success in regards to their testing and use of the product

Bonus points:

  • Experience leading or owning a Load testing platform at a similar scaled organization

Technologies we use:

  • Go/Python
  • AWS
  • Kubernetes
  • General infrastructure and reliability tools
