Job Description

This position is based in Santa Barbara, CA... known as the "American Riviera"... it really is that nice here.

We build payment software that constantly challenges our teams to build scalable and reliable systems.

Over the years, we have embraced automation and testing which allows us to create great systems... AND maintain a balanced lifestyle (i.e. get rid of BS alerts in the middle of the night).

We know our strengths, and realize our weaknesses... and take pride in actually *doing something* to fix things that can be better.

We have the resources for top of the line equipment and love finding ways to implement them to maintain our goal of constantly improving.

There are always new things to work on so you won't be bored with just package updates.  If you are interested in building modern security systems that scale, look no further.

We are looking for top tier engineers, and we are willing to pay a premium salary for the right people.  True computer scientists looking to get your hands on cutting edge systems apply now.
