[Hiring] Staff Software Engineer - Polyglot @DBA

May 29, 2024 - DBA is hiring a remote Staff Software Engineer - Polyglot. 💸 Salary: competitive salary. 📍Location: USA.

About Us

DBA is a product and software development consultancy, specializing in FinTech and Startup projects. DBA has launched and scaled hundreds of applications. We build the software and services that power our partners' businesses.

At DBA, we use the technology that best fits the project. Our developers are generally polyglots. Additionally, most developers at DBA have exposure to a range of other languages and platforms. While our preferences lean towards Elixir, Ruby, and Flutter as a baseline for many software projects, different projects and teams have different requirements, so we're extraordinarily flexible. Many projects require deep expertise in Java, TypeScript, SQL, and JavaScript.

Our work ranges from developing financial systems that handle billions annually to launching apps that reach #1 in the big app stores. We create products and technologies that propel companies to the forefront of their industries. While we'd love to share more, our commitment to discretion keeps us behind the scenes.

We write tests for our software, because we are not savages.

DBA is a fully remote company, though occasional opportunities to travel do arise. We will never have any vaccination or masking requirements, nor do we work with clients that require them or anything similar.
