Human Interest is on a mission to ensure that people in all lines of work have access to retirement benefits.
Social security, our nation’s retirement safety net, is projected to be insolvent as soon as 2035, making employer-sponsored 401(k) plans the primary retirement savings vehicle in the U.S. Nearly half of all working Americans are not saving enough for their future because they are employed by a company that doesn’t offer a retirement plan. Human Interest is changing that by making it affordable and accessible for small and medium sized businesses to offer employees a path to financial independence through retirement savings.
Our values are the guiding principles we use to build solutions for plan administrators and participants. They reflect our point of view on what’s important and what’s right:
In it for customers, autonomous & accountable, outcomes driven, inclusive collaboration, and decisive.
As a member of the Engineering department, you will get to help build our financial engine. You will collaborate with domain experts to design, build, test, and own systems and processes for servicing 401(k) plans and making our customers happy. As reliability is key to earning our customers’ trust, you will build robust systems that are observable, maintainable, and scalable.

- Build and maintain business-critical software to process and record customers' retirement savings
- Improve complex processes and systems to make them more robust and require less human intervention
- Collaborate with other engineers and stakeholders to share knowledge and build expertise
- Develop ownership over domains in our system and make informed engineering tradeoffs
- Advocate for and delight internal and external users
- Build integrations with payroll providers and other external systems
- Lead and participate in development life cycle activities like design, coding, testing and production release
- Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes
What you bring to the role:
- 5+ years of experience building and maintaining software in production
- Desire to work with the following technologies: Node, TypeScript, React, AWS and PostgreSQL
- Top notch communication skills. You can communicate well with engineers and non-engineers alike
