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 Systems Engineer will solve?

Here at Nubank, we treat security, infrastructure, and operations as Software Engineering problems. Therefore it's expected of a Systems 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.



We are looking for Engineers with a solid track record of creating efficient, scalable, and usable solutions. You will have a meaningful chance to improve tools and platforms, shape architecture, process, and culture while working with challenging problems accros Nubank's product teams. 

Don't worry if you don't know all of it! Having experience in some of it and being willing to learn is enough to apply.

You will fit well with this role if you have experience with: 

  • Solid experience with Programming Languages (e.g., Python, React, Golang);
  • Infrastructure as a Code (e.g., CloudFormation, Terraform);
  • Container Orchestration (e.g., Kubernetes, Docker Swarm); 
  • Amazon Web Services (AWS);
  • Reliability;
  • Experience working with incident management/crash and post-mortem projects.

We believe in good team chemistry, enthusiasm for building things, and our surprising capacity to learn new things when we stay humble and open-minded. Good computer science skills and concepts, as well as English language skills, are essential.

We are a very process-light organization that values human interactions. We love working in small, independent teams that feel like small startups and eschew coupling and centralizing where realistic. We understand that execution is the key to success and optimize processes to remove bottlenecks.
