Job Description

We are the FIS Embedded Finance team, and our mission is to enable developers across all verticals to imagine, create and monetize financial products to profoundly transform the way the entire financial industry consumes services. Today, it's difficult for many businesses to build the financial products they imagine. Whether that's launching a new credit or debit card, a savings account, a lending business, or anything else — there are barriers in the way that require excessive time and effort. We make it trivially easy for businesses to compliantly offer financial products and innovate on their key differentiators rather than spend all their time building and maintaining financial infrastructure. 


We are looking for a Staff Front-End Software Engineer to help us build a brand-new financial technology platform for the future. We look for people who operate like owners, who love to learn, have grit, and operate with integrity and empathy.
