Engineering @ Wealthsimple

Wealthsimple has several engineering teams ranging from product focused to back office and our teams build and manage the software that powers our services. We do this using a microservice architecture and an agile approach, focused on short iterations and rigorous automated testing, deploying our code over 100 times a day. We maximize our productivity by building high-performing teams and giving them autonomy to deliver results, working very closely with product management, design and operations to make sure that our work delivers maximum benefit for our clients.

Fraud Platform Team

The Fraud Platform team is responsible for helping Wealthsimple grow, safely. We look to balance risk and customer experience: our mandate is to prevent losses while inserting minimal friction to customers across all products. We employ a multifaceted approach to fraud detection, mitigation and prevention.

Our team is looking for talented Engineers who are excited about building systems leveraging data to make decisions. We are consolidating fraud mitigation efforts into the platform, making this an ideal time to leave your mark if you want to contribute to the design of such a system. We are looking for folks who can independently own services with strict performance and availability requirements.

In this role, you are someone who:

  • Believes that simple is better

  • Loves to dive deep into the data, tools and languages you use and is passionate about how a modern software development process should be designed

  • Believes that debate, inclusivity and transparency result in better products

  • Takes ownership and pride in working on projects to successful completion

  • Understands distributed systems and scale, but is also pragmatic

  • Has high standards and holds yourself and others accountable

Skills we're looking for:

  • Experience with Java, Python or Ruby

  • Experience helping build and architect microservices and distributed systems

  • A proven track record of building the processes and tools needed for delivering well-designed and tested software

  • Experience with Postgres/MySQL databases (bonus points if you know your way around Oracle)

  • Experience with Kafka, Flink and event streaming

  • A DevOps mindset: you own your application end-to-end and are able to understand and address infrastructure concerns

  • Effective communication skills and a drive to work collaboratively across teams

  • Bonus points for ML and fraud mitigation experience

Please include your CV and your answers to the following questions:

  • Why do you want to join the team at Wealthsimple?

  • What’s a system that you build that you are particularly proud of?

Wealthsimple is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive culture, one which reflects the world in which we live. We encourage applications from candidates of colour, women, queer candidates, indigenous peoples, candidates with family caregiving responsibilities, immigrant candidates, transgender candidates and candidates with disabilities.

At Wealthsimple, we are dedicated to creating a culture with a diversity of talented individuals who join, stay, and work in an environment that enables them to thrive.
