Full-Stack Engineer

For this role, we’re looking for an experienced engineer who wants to contribute to a seasoned engineering team.

Our culture:

  • We do thorough code reviews using GitHub pull requests. We aim for high code quality with a lightweight process.
  • We practice rapid iteration - if it’s been reviewed and makes production better, deploy to production.
  • Before coding, we sweat the details and edge cases, debate the design, and disagree openly.
  • We use the best tools money can buy, and focus on solving real problems for customers, not re-inventing the wheel.
  • We write tests pragmatically for things that are mission-critical or prone to failure. Think billing and offer redemption, not Backbone templates.
  • Our stack: Ruby on Rails, Postgres, Backbone.js, Redis, ElasticSearch.


  • B.S. or M.S. in Computer Science or equivalent, and at least 2 years experience in professional software development.
  • You've shipped readable, modular, reusable code to users.
  • Deep understanding of web application architecture and computer science principles.
  • Mastery of at least one programming language (Ruby/Python/JavaScript a plus). General familiarity with our stack or experience with frontend JS frameworks a big plus.
  • You communicate ideas clearly, and write intelligently.
  • You're an independent self-starter who can take an ambiguous idea from whiteboard to running in production.
  • You can see the bigger picture and want to be part of a business, not just an engineering team.

Why join Privy?

  • Privy is still a small company poised for great growth.
  • We have amazing clients representing over 1000 US store locations - and growing every day.
  • We've raised money from top investors like 500 Startups and Atlas Venture, and executives at Hubspot, Intuit, and Google.
  • We invest heavily in our people, culture and perks. Craft beer and coffee. Weekly team lunches. Fireside chats.
