About Nubank

Nubank was born from a simple idea: everyone should have control over their own money. We enable millions of Latin Americans to live better by freeing our customers from a bureaucratic, slow, and inefficient traditional banking system. With operations in Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, and offices in Argentina, Germany, and the United States, Nubank is the world's largest independent digital bank, reinventing over 35 million customers' financial lives.

We're redefining people's relationships with money through seamless, transparent products and outstanding customer service: a no-fee credit card entirely managed by a mobile app and held by over 21 million people, and a digital account, free of taxes, owned by 35 million Brazilians. We also offer hassle-free personal loans, a benefits program with points that don't expire, a business account tailored for SMBs, and life insurance. In 2020, Nubank acquired digital broker Easynvest and became the leader in self-directed digital investments in Brazil.

Throughout the years, we raised over US$1.2 billion with some of the best-known growth and technology investors in the world. Forbes magazine elected Nubank best bank in Brazil for three years in a row, 2019, 2020 and 2021. Fast Company magazine named us the most innovative company in Latin America and CBInsights as the most valuable challenger bank.

 

About Investments BU

The Investments Business Unit was created by Nubank's acquisition of Easynvest. Since both companies share similar principles and values, especially the respect to our customers, the integration between companies has been smooth and all efforts have been invested on our mission: Awaken people to a world of investments with no complexity.

 

Our challenges

Technology is not a sector of our business: it's intrinsic to every area at Nubank. We encourage everyone to challenge the status quo. There's no "innovation team" - we hire innovative people for all our positions and encourage them to constantly question decisions to keep finding better ways to do something. Our business is growing, and our engineering team must match that demand.

As we grow, we need to:

  • Find new techniques and technologies, multiplying efficiency through tools and libraries;
  • Balance new processes while staying agile;
  • Learn quickly and easily adapt to changing situations and priorities;
  • Sustainable scale diverse teams;
  • Find synergy between platforms, and use this to integrate and evolve all business. 

 

What are some examples of problems a CI/CD or Cloud Engineer will solve?

Here at Nubank, we treat security, infrastructure, and operations as Software Engineering problems. Therefore it's expected of a CI/CD or Cloud Engineer to have programming skills coupled with solid expertise in infrastructure.

Some examples of the problems you'll encounter:

  • Leverage our internal Infrastructure as a Code platform, understand our current controls, and implement functionalities that speed up our engineering and lower our risk.
  • Increase the usability of our automations related to cloud, making them more straightforward for a non-technical audience.
  • Work with different squads with overlapping responsibilities and scopes, finding the best balance to fascinate our customers.
  • Use a data-driven approach to decision-making about controls, acting on models that make the ecosystem more easy, fast and secure with increased employees, services, and customers.

 

What is a typical day for a Cloud Engineer or Devops Engineer?​

They spend their days understanding what cloud infrastructure is in place, synergy between platforms from Easynvest and Nubank, finding opportunities to improve engineering quality and productivity. They define with other engineers a good state for the infrastructure, conduct a build-vs-buy, and find opportunities to leverage existing solutions to reduce engineering costs.

We strive for state-of-the-art devops practices and technologies. While we value candidates who are familiar with them, we are also confident that engineers interested in joining Nubank will be able to learn from our team.
