Fullstack Developer (Senior)


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.

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 experienced full stack engineers ready to make an impact.

You’ll work with a great modern stack - including ES6 and React on the front-end, and Python and Rust on the back-end. We have a microservice-based architecture built on top of Kubernetes and Google’s Cloud Platform.

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 comfortable working across the code base, and learning new technologies as the business requires - you might prefer a back or front end focus, but you’ll be open to a working knowledge of both.

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.

What we're looking for
We like to keep it simple

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, Rust, or Javascript (we use React), and a desire to learn the others.
A track record as a successful Senior Developer
Experience owning and delivery of projects
A hands-on professional eager to improve and empower the engineering team
