Description

The Role

Pilot is a successful startup hiring a senior engineer on our Business Universe team.

All of our teams have unique charters to collectively build the software, services and systems that enable Pilot to deliver a high-quality experience, profitably, at scale. The Business Universe team enables Pilot to build our bookkeeping service on an increasingly real-time foundation of customer financial data.

Pilot’s aim is to provide our customers with the same superpowers as large companies with full finance teams — superpowers that include having a deep understanding of financial health of the business, the machinery to constantly improve it, and the predictive abilities to thoughtfully plan for the future. We do this at a fraction of the cost a large company would pay for this, by delivering these capabilities through powerful software.

Pilot’s backend is written in fully typed Python 3.11, and our frontend is JavaScript, TypeScript, and Vue.js. We use Terraform to manage our production infrastructure, and deploy Docker containers to ECS. AWS CodeDeploy powers our deployments and we rely on Honeycomb for our monitoring and Postgres as our database.

Key Responsibilities

  • Building, testing and deploying software in a continuous manner (we deploy daily or more often)

  • Working with PMs and Product Designers, and participating in product and design reviews

  • Creating and contributing to technical specs and testing/rollout plans

  • Working with internal customers and stakeholders to ensure we’re solving the right problems

  • Mentoring and sponsoring your teammates to help them grow

  • Working across teams to shape the future of engineering at Pilot

  • Supporting your software and services as required

About You

Even if you don’t have experience with the specific technologies in our stack, we’d love to talk to you! Our requirements are:

  • 7+ years of experience as a software engineer

  • Experience with Python in production

  • Able to work collaboratively across functions

  • Strong written, verbal, and technical communication skills

  • Able to write well-structured, well-tested, and maintainable code

  • Demonstrated ability to mentor and teach others

Additionally, we’re interested in engineers with specialties or backgrounds in accounting as well as fintech and related fields.
