What we're looking for

As part of Puzzle, you will help design and build a next generation financial data platform. We will be ingesting large amounts of data from disparate sources, transforming them, organizing them, and automatically turning them into easily understandable company financials.

We want to be as real-time as possible, event-driven, and decoupled. Redundant, resistant and secure. And accuracy is key. This is your opportunity to be an early engineer at a well-funded startup that has a successful founder and a drive to change how company's leverage their financials. We are remote-first — anywhere in the US works for us.

As a Sr. Backend Software Engineer, you will help architect, design, productize and build key parts of our financial system and immutable, event-driven ledger.

  • Working directly with our product team, deliver on core accounting, auditing and financial infrastructure

  • Build systems to keep information up to date and accurate

  • Create unique functionality for correlation of data

  • Design interfaces and APIs to our data

  • Extend and architect our event pipeline for speed and scale

  • Extend our core reporting platform

  • Work on designing endpoints for our product

  • Handle an ever growing stream of data


  • 6+ years as a software engineer

  • Experience with agile software development methodologies

  • Experience in a modern programming language like Python

  • Strong experience with Databases design (SQL, NoSQL) and analytics

  • An understanding of and desire to bring company financials into the 21st century

  • Experience working with accounting and/or financial systems, building double-entry ledgers, accounting software a plus
