Creative Technologist / Venture Engineer / Prototype Wizard

Background

At numo, we create and incubate new "fintech" companies. numo seeks a forward-thinking creative technologist to develop early stage product concepts. The Venture team sits at the fuzzy front end of the idea pipeline, partnering with internal stakeholders, 3rd-parties and academics to define new product development opportunities in the fintech space. We’re looking for a hands-on technologist who wants to experiment with new data sources and software technologies and adopt them to the product roadmap for future numo companies.

Our venture team includes product and business experts, and now we’re seeking to build our engineering / data competency in the space. This role will include a combination of:

  1. exploring technical challenges that go beyond what is common in the financial world today,
  2. digging into large, novel datasets to derive trends and insights that will turn into commercializable products,
  3. bringing technical horsepower to bear as we elevate the work from ambiguous idea to robust prototype. 

You will be responsible for actually making and coding. The role will be a great fit for someone who is able to derive insights from data, prototype early, make something simple, allow others to test it and gather client feedback soon and often. It’s not necessarily about stewarding a product through to launch but will most often be about going deep early to explore a product or opportunity from all angles.

 

What you'll be doing – sound interesting?

  • Leverage your deep understanding of modern tech to enhance numo’s early stage product ideas.
  • Work with Venture leadership to ideate and outline project objectives.
  • Create rapid prototypes, set objectives and deliverables as well as ensure all projects have measurable outcomes.
  • Utilize your expertise to provide tech and platform guidance including limitations and opportunities.
  • You will explore the very latest technologies to produce innovative financial products, interactive prototypes and experiences. 

 

What an ideal candidate will bring to the table – does this describe you?

  • Depth and breath of experience with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, nodeJS, Python, Lambda, AWS Cloud, RDS/Dyamo and EC2/Kubernetes/ECS
  • Thrive in an environment where you’ll work across multiple projects at once
  • Able to work in a fast-paced environment
  • Analytical problem solver who wants to spend time learning about new technologies and making prototypes to demonstrate value
  • Experienced in working with / analyzing large, complex data sets using tools such as R, Stata, etc.
  • Skilled communicator - able to present to stakeholders when needed.
  • An experienced coder who is passionate about the tech world (and ideally fintech)
  • Able to operate in a lead role developing innovative digital ideas
  • Can learn new software and concepts quickly
  • Has high level of knowledge of software implementation

Who we are
We are a team of technologists, designers, business thinkers, and academics that create software and data products. We pair opportunities in FinTech with cutting-edge technologies and data analysis. Funded in full by our parent financial institution, we do more with ideas than just talk about them—we have the tools and resources necessary to bring them to life. We launch products for a variety of financial institutions and beyond to help them solve compelling pains.
