Array is revolutionizing how businesses leverage and enhance consumer data. Our platform (APIs, components, and rules engine) enables innovative companies and developers to seamlessly integrate credit and identity data into their apps, websites or workflows. Founded by serial entrepreneurs (with several exits), we’ve been nearly doubling revenue monthly. We’re looking for passionate and creative teammates to help us scale and supercharge the company. If you’re looking for autonomy, impact, and cutting-edge FinTech, we’d love to hear from you. Though fully remote, our team is the foundation of our success. We strive for diverse backgrounds, opinions, and approaches. We encourage respectful dissent, digging for the truth, so that we can deliver the best product for our clients and users. Continuous improvement, experimentation, and a clear mission stretch us individually and together.

We build RESTful API's using microservices built primarily in Go with some Node.js sprinkled throughout. We are looking for great engineers who know how to build scalable services to help consumers with their financial health and wellness via credit monitoring and identity protection. Interested? We'd love to hear from you! And we are always esp. happy to see any pointers you may have to your work on Git (GitHub, GitLab, etc.) or a personal Web site.
