At OnDeck, we improve the world’s economic landscape by changing the way small businesses access capital. We do it in an environment where we celebrate collaboration, but aren’t afraid of healthy competition; where we’re serious about our work but don’t take ourselves too seriously; and where we are small enough to be nimble but strong enough to make a big impact.

Department/Team overview:

Technology at OnDeck is a mix of building world-class user experiences for our partners and direct customers, data processing to enable underwriting model development and real-time lending decisions, automating operational and compliance workflows, and generating precise money movements and calculations to service our customers.  We have an emphasis on scalability, reliability and accuracy. Architecture plays a very crucial role to develop processes that consistently define implementation strategies, evaluate technical risk, shape long term technical direction.  While pursuing these goals, it’s also critical to maintain a collaborative approach with the rest of the development organization (EA’s customers) to avoid architecture in isolation.

  • Design technical solution options for the OnDeck Platform and Partner integrations.
  • Develop a reference architecture and steer development organization towards it
  • Assess existing and new technical risks associated with the OnDeck Platform
  • Develop standards and best practices and identify areas of improvement.

Here at OnDeck we rely heavily on our tech leads to:

  • Care deeply about making a business impact
  • Focus on scalability, security and flexibility of solutions
  • Innovate and promote learning
  • Help engineers to thrive

Qualifications for success:

  • Problem solving and analytical skills, ability to synthesize complex requirements and provide practical solutions.
  • Understand the platform quickly, gain insights and be able to ask the right questions.
  • Strong Distributed software system design fundamentals. 
  • Comfort with an Agile development environment. 
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills.
