Join Robinhood's mission to democratize finance for all!

Robinhood was founded on a simple idea: that our financial markets should be accessible to all. With customers at the heart of our decisions, Robinhood is lowering barriers and providing greater access to financial information. Together with our business partners, we are building products and services that help create a financial system everyone can participate in.

As we continue to build...

We're seeking full-time support from curious thinkers looking to co-author the next chapters of our story. Our intent is to set up a successful site long- term in Canada to support Robinhood's U.S. operations. While we are exploring this possibility, join our third party employer of record and help shape our vision, structures and systems. You will play a key-role as we launch into our ambitious future.

About the role/team:

Robinhood's Developer Infrastructure organization's goal is to increase the efficiency, velocity, reliability, and scalability of Robinhood Engineering!

We help software developers write code. We speed up getting code out of a software developer's head and into customers' hands safely. We drive consistency across platforms and toolchains. We enable product software developers to focus completely on what code to write rather than how to write that code. We find, fix, and prevent issues during the development cycle rather than in production.

We see software development and engineering as a whole and drive systemic improvements to our development process and culture. We sweep up and janitor anything which is generally painful. We are the last line of defense if something is wrong in engineering.

Canadian-based software developers will be employed by a local entity providing competitive pay and benefits, and engaged to support Robinhood's U.S. operations, which build & own backend services and infrastructure that power our core U.S. financial products. Developers supporting RH's operations gain a unique look into how the US financial systems works on the inside and strengthen their financial-domain knowledge. We strive for a high standard of engineering quality while solving unique scalability challenges. These Software Developers support high-priority initiatives.

We are only interested in candidates available for full-time roles.

What we expect you'll do day-to-day:
  • Proactively identify and support optimizations and improvements to software development and engineering productivity and experience.
  • Design large scale systems, making the right tradeoffs for risk and long- term maintainability.
  • Provide mentorship to junior developers on the team.
  • Lead organization-wide collaboration for the team.
  • About you:
  • 5+ years of professional software engineering and development experience building high-throughput, low-latency distributed services.
  • History of creating and applying new processes and tooling to increase engineering and development efficiency.
  • Experience with monorepos and modern build systems like Bazel / Blaze, Buck, and Pants.
  • Experience planning and leading large projects with long-term impact on multiple services and/or teams.
  • Strong technical grasp and excellent judgment on project scoping and work prioritization.
  • Able to tackle challenging software development problems in complex domains that deliver results.
  • Experience working with distributed systems, databases, batch processing systems.
  • Strong understanding of data modeling and extensive experience in good API design practices (gRPC and/or REST).
  • Bonus points:
  • Experience with high-growth startups.
  • Experience working with geographically-distributed teams.
  • Technologies we use:
  • Bazel
  • Buildkite and Jenkins
  • Kubernetes
  • Python and Go
  • Intellij and VSCode
  • Monorepo
  • Phabricator
  • GitHub
  • Git
  • We're looking for more growth-minded and collaborative contractors to be a part of our journey in democratizing finance for all. If you're ready to give 100% in helping us achieve our mission—we'd love to see you apply even if you feel unsure about whether you meet every single requirement in this posting. At Robinhood, we're looking to partner with people invigorated by our mission, values, and drive to change the world, not just those who simply check off all the boxes.

    Robinhood is dedicated to building a company that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. We believe that the more inclusive we and our business partners are, the better our work (and work environment) will be for everyone. Additionally, Robinhood provides reasonable accommodations for candidates on request and respects applicants' privacy rights.
