Engineering at Nubank

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

  • Horizontally scalable microservices written mostly in Clojure, using Finagle and leveraging upon functional programming techniques and hexagonal architecture
  • High throughput jobs and inter-service communication using Kafka
  • Continuous Integration and Deployment into AWS
  • Storing data in Datomic and DynamoDB
  • Monitoring and observability with Prometheus

We are a process-light organization that values human interactions.
