Backend Developer

At PassFort, we share a powerful vision to enable businesses & individuals to establish trust online. We’re connecting the human concept of trust with the transformative technology of the internet.

At PassFort, we share a powerful vision to enable businesses & individuals to establish trust online. We currently do this by giving regulated businesses the tools they need to automate and digitalise the onboarding, verification and management of their customers - that means customers can be onboarded in real-time, without ever having met in person.

And this is just the beginning - our technology allows us to define what ‘trust’ means across the digital economy. Our long term aim is to create a single network where people and businesses can share their digital identity securely and interchangeably - whether they’re applying for a mortgage, listing on the stock market, or applying for a new job. We're transforming how trust is established online, in the same way that Salesforce transformed sales, Stripe transformed payments and AWS transformed DevOps.

What you’ll be doing

We’re looking for a talented back end developer to lead the delivery of our data roadmap. You’ll work with a great modern stack - including Rust, Python and ES6. We have a microservice based architecture built on top of Kubernetes/Istio on top of Google’s Cloud Platform. We release multiple times an hour.

We empower our team to have ownership across the entire product. You’ll think about everything from architecture, security and performance, all the way through to feature UX. You’ll be developing entire features, including technical design, implementation and release. 

You’ll be focussing on helping PassFort manage complex identity data at scale. You’ll be comfortable working across the code base, and introducing and learning new technologies as the business requires.

We’ll trust (and depend!) on you to speak up, voice your opinion, and respectfully challenge. You’ll have the chance to bring new ideas, and become an integral part of the process to continuously improve our product, along with our working practices. We think everyone can teach us something - and offer mentorship to more junior members.

  • Foremost, we’ll be looking for someone who fits well with our company culture and values - Trust, Empowerment and Growth
  • You’ll need a deep knowledge of either Python or Rust
