As BillFront's developer, you’ll help developing both internal and customer-facing web applications, connecting them to financial data from sources like invoicing systems and ad tracking dashboards, and scheduling money transfers using various payment providers. You’ll get unprecedented insight into the inner workings of the digital media ecosystem, developing a common framework of reference feeding into the credit assessment engine overseeing multi-million loans.
To achieve this, we put emphasis on building small, reusable and loosely coupled components. We work in lightweight kanban and believe in agile with a lower-case "a", encouraging pair-programming, limiting work in progress and keeping the feedback loop as short as possible.
Our current codebase consists of a main Rails app (well specced, <20 models) with some ClojureScript/ Reagent/ re-frame components, a customer-facing re-frame Single Page Application consuming a GraphQL API, and a small fleet of supporting microservices (mostly Clojure). The infrastructure, relying heavily on Docker and AWS, is clean and well-maintained.
