Join a leading fintech company that’s democratizing finance for 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, growth minded thinkers to help shape our vision, structures and systems; playing a key-role as we launch into our ambitious future. If you’re invigorated by our mission, values, and drive to change the world — we’d love to have you apply.

About the team:

This role is based in Menlo Park, CA, Seattle, WA, or New York City, New York, dependent on applicant’s location.

Developer Infrastructure’s mission is to empower engineering to build with quality, velocity, and confidence.

Our platform currently comprises the following teams: Developer Experience, Test Experience, Web Platform, and Mobile Platform. We’re responsible for all the tooling, systems, and processes that enable engineers to traverse the software development lifecycle at Robinhood.

Our teams help engineering move quickly and safely. We find, fix, and left shift production issues back to development.

  • Eagerness to learn and use new technologies and share with the team.
  • Experience with Monorepos and modern build systems (ie Bazel, Buck, Pants).

Technologies we use:
