Backend Engineer with Valstro

Remote (US/NYC)

$120K - 200K a year

Valstro was founded during the COVID-19 Pandemic and has been operating on a “remote-first” basis ever since. That said, as the world starts to return to normal, another of our core values is that there is just no substitute for in-person collaboration when it comes to certain kinds of knowledge work. We recently moved into a physical office in Midtown NYC that is a key part of our goal of moving from fully remote work to a hybrid arrangement.

Valstro offers an excellent benefits package with top-tier health insurance, 401k plans and highly competitive overall compensation.

Regardless of where you are sitting, Valstro is a wonderful place to work. Leadership brings a genuine wealth of experience and industry knowledge, and for a young company, we humbly believe that we have our product/market fit very carefully dialed in. As we move to execute and deliver the vision to clients, the Engineering team will need client-obsessed, delivery-focused high performers (with a healthy dose of humility, of course) that we can help grow into the FinTech leaders of the future. If this excites you, we would love to chat.
