Pearl Capital is a financial technology startup with a leading position in the sub-prime merchant cash advance space. We fund small to medium-sized businesses and broker funding arrangements between merchants and other lenders.
We are seeking a talented full-time senior developer to help build out a range of internal and external facing systems and web services, which will need to interact using different technologies and protocols. Coding will involve various languages ranging from Java/C++ to custom scripting and web languages. The ideal candidate will be excited about building and maintaining client/server systems that need to interact reliably on a day-to-day basis, and less focused on the language being used.
This opportunity is on-site, in Jersey City, but there some flexibility in telecommuting (up to 2 days per week remotely).
Pearl Capital is a Fintech company whose business model generates extra liquidity for small merchants. They are a brilliant business that takes the Amazon "platformization" idea (everything you do in house you should offer it in a XaaS model as well) to heart. Pearl Capital is a merchant cash advance business, but they also allow other investors to come in and jointly fund deals in their portfolio and they white label their internal software for other Merchant Cash Advance companies to use it in their operation. You seldom see companies that "get" the modern world of business this well.
Pearl Capital is Venture backed, having raised $35m in funding but they also have revenues in the $20m range. They are a huge business supporting a tremendous amount of financial transactions. This is not your average selfie startup, resiliency and software quality matters here.
Pearl's strategy is white glove and they provide a tremendous amount of help and support (marketing, strategy, underwriting) to their Merchant Cash Advance business partners. The company is being built on a rock-solid foundation of long-lasting relationships, as well as extreme end to end product quality. Everything is elite quality, from the illustrations on their main site to the quality of their back end code and the marketing help they provide to their partners.
This role will have a direct impact on company growth, working closely with the business to improve existing systems and build out the next generation of products that our clients and customers will interact with. This is a hands-on position for a software author – someone who is passionate about being a great programmer.
We are looking for an experienced individual who is a lifelong learner and who's passionate about correctness in the software they build. The compensation is very competitive and includes full benefits and 401k.
