Want to be part of one of Hong Kong’s hottest Fintech start-ups? Join us on our mission to create an experience that's faster, more modern and friendlier than a bank. 

We are Neat. We've built Hong Kong's first online current account for individuals, startups and SMEs. Our goal is to make bank branches redundant and provide a joyful customer experience. 

We’re now looking for a Backend Engineer to help us build a modern financial technology app. You will need to be able to prioritize what’s important, understand needs and should not be shy about voicing your opinions as we chart our course.

  • Work with people across the company to build new features
  • Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes
  • Connect to external APIs – payment processors, banks, and other technology platforms
  • Evaluate the technical tradeoffs of every decision
  • Propose architectural decisions, and take part in designs, design review and code reviews and implementation
  • Build robust, lasting, and scalable products
  • Implementation of security and data protection
  • Optimization of the application for speed and scalability

Our current technology stack 

  • Our backend systems are mostly written in Ruby (Sinatra), with some services written in Java and Python/Node (serverless apps)
  • AWS for most of our infrastructure
  • Postgres/Redis for data storage

What we're looking for:

  • Someone who gets excited by tough technical challenges
  • Someone who loves to learn, and is passionate about helping others
  • Experience with front-end apps and databases
  • Someone who can collaborate and work well with others
  • Proficient understanding of OWASP security principles
  • 3+ years of software engineering experience preferred
  • A passion for FinTech and creativity!
