At Nova Credit, our mission is to power a more fair and inclusive financial system for the world. Nova Credit’s diverse global team is stitching together the world's credit data into a single network to unlock financial opportunities for immigrants and other populations historically excluded from the credit system. We’ve built a platform that enables lenders to access a single, predictive cross-border credit database to help enable underwriting decisions. We are backed by leading investors including Kleiner Perkins, General Catalyst, and Index Ventures. For a more in-depth look of our engineering culture, check out our page on [Key Values](https://www.keyvalues.com/nova-credit). As an Infrastructure/Platform Engineer at Nova Credit, you’ll have the opportunity to work on a small team tackling not-small problems. Our infrastructure is configured declaratively in code so you’ll spend 0% of your day fiddling around in the AWS console and 100% of your day in your IDE. ### **RESPONSIBILITIES** - Build & configure the cloud resources that power and secure the global financial identity infrastructure - Operate with a security-first mindset - Own availability, reliability, and scalability - Multiply the impact of Nova Credit’s engineering teams - ### **YOUR SKILLSET** - 2+ years of relevant infrastructure/platform work - Mastery of AWS and its alphabet soup of services - Familiarity with Infrastructure as Code frameworks (Terraform, Cloudformation, etc. | Ansible, Chef, etc.)  - \*nix chops - Comfortable working in shells - Scripting language(s) -- NodeJS preferred - Experience provisioning and managing CI tooling / frameworks - ### **SAMPLE PROJECTS** - Build a containerized PR Preview environment that provisions a dedicated context for every PR - Creatively design and provision multi-cloud, global infrastructure to satisfy an ever-changing Venn Diagram of multinational privacy and legal regulations - Safety-first CI/CD - Zero-manual-maintenance infrastructure - ### **NOVA CREDIT'S INTERVIEW PROCESS** - Step 1: The phone screen gives us a chance to learn more about you, your goals, and your interests. It’s also a chance for you to learn about us and get answers to your questions.  - Step 2: The technical assessment (a one-hour coding challenge) is intended to give you a taste of what you’ll be doing at Nova Credit. We avoid asking algorithmic questions, so you can expect to be asked to complete more practical tasks, such as working with an existing API, parsing JSON responses, or building a UI component. - Step 3: The virtual final round will give you the opportunity to meet additional engineers, have a conversation with your potential manager, and expose you to the Nova Credit culture. It is broken down into three one-hour technical sessions (coding challenges/systems design sessions) and a forty-five minute chat with the hiring manager. _Everyone is welcome at Nova Credit. We are an equal opportunity employer where our diversity and inclusion are central pillars to our company strategy. We look for applicants who understand, embrace and thrive in a multicultural and increasingly globalized world. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status._
