Principal Software Engineer - Backend

Titan

Titan

Software Engineering
Posted on Friday, December 8, 2023

Titan is the rebel challenger in a very old industry. The present era is run by ancient players: Fidelity, Schwab, & Goldman Sachs. The problem is that none of them were built on modern rails and have horrible user experiences. There have been new things built (think: “investing apps”). They are either 1) gimmicky casinos or 2) sleepy commodities. We won’t say names. Why hasn’t anyone built a modern Goldman Sachs for everyone? That’s our mission.

Titan is a next-generation investment firm. We aspire to lead our generations’ wealth.

We are fighters at heart. We fight to build products that are truly democratized. For example, we launched the first institutional grade cash management product open to everyday investors via Titan Smart Cash. We launched the first ever Venture fund for everyday investors in partnership with Cathie Wood’s ARK. We’ve been able to raise significant capital from some of Silicon Valley’s best, like a16z and General Catalyst.

Now let’s talk about you. We’re highly selective with who we choose to bring onto the team, but if you resonate with the above, we’d love to meet you.

The Role
As a Principal Backend Engineer you'll be responsible for maintaining and extending our trading and account management infrastructure to support and delight tens of thousands of our clients transacting millions of dollars a day. From adding support for new financial products and accounts types to building our automated portfolio management system to handling thousands of daily messages to keep our accounts in sync you'll be touching the core infrastructure of our systems that enables everything else. You'll work closely with Engineering Management and other members of the engineering team to ensure the continued stability, scalability and security of Titan's systems. You'll also work cross-functionally with our design, product and customer experience teams to deliver delightful experiences that have never before been seen in a financial product.
We're looking for someone who has:
  • A strong technical background including > 7 years building applications using JavaScript / TypeScript.
  • Experience working with complex, real-time external APIs.
  • A desire to get better everyday. Titan’s best days are still to come and so are yours.
  • An ability to work in a fast paced environment with subject matter experts from across the company.
  • A strong sense of responsibility and integrity. We’re a fiduciary of our clients and we always act with their best interests at heart.
