Job Description

Tally makes people less stressed and better off financially. We've built the first fully automated debt manager to help people overcome credit card debt. Currently at Series C with $92MM in funding and backing from top investors including Andreessen Horowitz and Kleiner Perkins, we are democratizing financial services to put billions of dollars back in people’s pockets. Tally’s vision is to automate people’s entire financial lives so they can worry about money less and do what they love more.

Our products started on mobile but we have important plans for the web. Qualified candidates should be comfortable leading the team’s efforts in creating secure, scalable public-facing web applications and internal tools.

Role Impact:

  • Provide guidance, set standards and facilitate decision making on systems design, software architecture, and technology selection principles; help create a path where our systems and products can evolve seamlessly together
  • Actively participate in product and engineering design reviews; probe assumptions, illuminate pitfalls, and foster shared understanding. Align teams toward coherent architectural strategies.
  • Drive implementation of key product and technology initiatives with a high degree of technical complexity; set the standard for engineering excellence.
  • Propose projects that may require the work of one or more teams to implement; divide responsibilities so that each team can work independently and have the system come together into an integrated whole.
  • Work closely with engineering leaders helping them understand skill and technology gaps, up-leveling the capabilities and quality of our engineering organization. 
  • Collaborate in recruiting efforts to bring more talented engineers to the team.
  • Spend time coaching and mentoring other engineers, helping them become better at their craft; be a source of knowledge.

 In this role we value:

  • Experienced technical/technology leader who has overseen design, implementation and operations of large-scale distributed systems and APIs
  • Proven ability to operate effectively and autonomously across multiple teams in situations of technical ambiguity
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills; ability to convey architecture and technology solutions succinctly
  • Familiarity working with and designing REST APIs 
  • Strong product sense, a growth mindset, and a history of mentorship

A message from our leadership:

"One of our core values at Tally is 'Change shoes often.' We do this with our peers and our customers every day, and we want candidates to share in our commitment to empathy.  Empathy really is the foundation of inclusion, and Tally prides itself in being a company that prioritizes inclusion and diversity. We’re dedicated to creating a workplace culture where people are included and treated equitably."
