    Technology is the heart of what we do at SmartBiz and the platform provides the critical foundation for our products. Our Platform Team is where we innovate and impact how underwriting has traditionally been done, how a bank processes a loan, reviews a credit file, and how calculations are done on risk/credit worthiness.

  • Able to build strong teams via hiring balancing the needs of the team now and into the future
  • Strong technical experience enabling the ability to roll up their sleeves as needed
  • Excellent communication skills to partner with other engineering teams and the rest of the business
  • Knowledge of what good architecture looks like for cloud-based microservices
  • Ability to define technical strategy around scalable service platforms and architecture, APIs, SDKs, etc
