As BillFront's developer, you'll be working mainly on workflows aggregating and reconciling financial data from sources like app stores and ad networks, and scheduling money transfers using various payment providers.

To achieve this, we put emphasis on building small, reusable and loosely coupled components. We work in a lightweight kanban and believe in agile with a lower-case "a", encouraging pair-programming, limiting work in progress and keeping the feedback loop as short as possible.

Our current codebase consists of a main Rails app (well specced, ~10 models) with some ClojureScript/Reagent components, and a small fleet of supporting microservices (mostly Clojure). The infrastructure, relying heavily on Docker and AWS, is clean and well-maintained.
