At Lana, we’re building a super app to provide access to financial products.

We are making it easy for everyone to guarantee access to the financial world in one single place and take control of their money to do great things with it.

Lana is operating in Mexico and Chile where new regulations make it possible to operate as a Fintech. Our next goal is to expand to the rest of Latin America.

Would you like to achieve this challenge with us?


About the role...

As a senior engineer in the Lana Core Team, you will be working to solve complex problems in the services that empower the rest of the company to run. You'll be actively working with the CTO and other areas of the business so you can determine the direction development should move in.

Lana strives for a modular working environment where each module determines its own development pipeline, according to the general direction of the company and requirements of the customers.

Our current backend tech stack for this project consists of:

  • Go
  • Docker + Kubernetes
  • CouchDB
  • CockroachDB
We are looking for someone with previous experience working with Go (desirable), however if not we are still happy to consider your application. We believe that even if you have worked in Java or C# all your life you can still pick up Go pretty quickly. For us it is more important to have someone who is adaptable and can pick up languages quickly.
 
Security is a major concern for this project, so decisions on how best to isolate, restrict, and monitor access to services and solutions will be a big challenge. 


About you;

We’re searching for engineers with a solid understanding of how to deal with building secure, reliable, and scaleable solutions. Your objective will be to build upon the existing core services to ensure that the other areas of the company can also develop solutions in their problem domains.

This is a hands-on role in a new project within the group, so it's a great opportunity to make your mark from the very beginning. Your decisions will affect how the company moves in the future.
