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.

What you get to do everyday:

  • Scale our platform and processes to continue serving our growing customer base
  • Influence technical and product direction across teams and company initiatives
  • Refine our data and domain modeling
  • Work with engineering management to identify ways to improve our implementation and delivery pipelines
  • Immerse yourself in the domain of payroll deduction-based investments
  • Mentor engineers to ensure growth
  • Advocate for engineering led initiatives
  • Define system architecture (e.g. microservices, lambdas, event queues, etc.)
  • Write and ship code

What you bring to the role:

  • Ability to amplify the team; you recognize your efforts can be magnified by ensuring that others succeed
  • Proven track record delivering cloud base software and business results
  • Articulate verbal and written communication
  • Keenness on scaling product through software
  • History of work in a fast paced, dynamic environment
  • Ability to zoom out or in on a project
  • 8+ years experience delivering software products
  • 2+ years leading software teams

Please feel free to apply to this position even if you do not meet 100% of the requirements listed above.
