Founding Engineer

Employment Type

Full time



Our mission is to make securing data as simple as spinning up a container and hitting “go”. Why is this important? When personal information collected by companies is exposed, it contributes to stolen identities that harm individuals’ financial lives and contributes to fraud. Breached institutions may never recover, which costs lost jobs and economic value. The reality is that companies today often face hard choices between strengthening security and improving their core product. JumpWire wants to eliminate any compromise to security by making a simple drop-in solution that automates the work.

We’re looking for a founding engineer to make comprehensive technology decisions and help shape both the product and team as we grow. You will have a large degree of ownership over fundamental technology choices as well as a meaningful impact on the overall company. This role will influence our culture, practices, and any successful outcomes.

Our services are primarily written in Elixir with a smattering of Rust, and Svelte for frontend interactivity. We package our application as docker containers for our customers to run, which adds some interesting technical challenges beyond a traditional SaaS service. Familiarity with Elixir or Rust is great, but not required. We’re happy to provide resources to ramp you up.

Our product looks magical because we do hard work to efficiently inspect, classify and transform data as close to the source as possible. You will be reverse-engineering wire protocols and optimizing large-scale data migrations.

About you

  • Comfortable taking ownership of large projects in a collaborative environment. You should be able to bring the best information forward from all stakeholders while maintaining autonomy over the final decision.
  • Strong understanding of system architecture and design, with consideration given to security, performance, and scalability. Value pragmatism over idealism when making architecture decisions.
  • Experience designing and delivering large, scalable backend services
  • Able to work in a rapidly changing environment without much specification or oversight
  • Interested in defining the characteristics of a high-output engineering organization, including work practices and recruiting standards


  • Communicate technical concerns and risks, and seek reasonable options to move forward.
  • Find opportunities to document and share learnings internally and/or externally.
  • Set best practices and code review standards across our code bases.
  • Define and drive our quarterly, annual, and multi-year visions.
