  • Strategic Thinker – You will manage the technological functions of the business and client strategies- consulting, creating project plans, managing implementation, acting as a liaison to communicate across teams, and being the driving force of execution and support.

  • Versatile/ Multi-Talented Contributor – Beyond core responsibilities, we also seek to leverage the strengths and interests of our employees in line with the needs of the business. Bring your intellectual curiosity and roll up your sleeves, as HBUS is a flat organization with a relatively small team of driven and intelligent people often working cross-functionally to make strategic contributions to a business they believe in.

While responsibilities in this position span multiple functions, we are (of course!) not expecting a depth of expertise in all the areas indicated. We look for the person in this role to have a drive for operational excellence, contribute in the areas they are skilled in while seeing and owning the connectivity across functions.

  • Strong hands-on expertise in system architecture design, system analysis, software implementation, performance optimization and system security
  • Experience with the core design of a high-performance, high concurrency, high available and high scalable system; be able to complete related design independently
  • Familiar with current Internet architecture, a broad definition of technology
  • Strong sense of trends and development of related industry
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Outstanding problem solver
  • Strong ability to work in the very fast-paced startup environment
  • Blockchain and crypto experience and knowledge are strongly preferred
Other skills:
  • Solutions & Result- Oriented - you will never compromise the long term for the short term and will innately understand it is possible to both do well and do good when you design the right solutions for the right clients in the right way.
  • Mission Focused – while industry background is not required, having an appreciation for the value of financial technology is required
  • Intrinsically Motivated - find meaning in the journey and in what you learn and build throughout it, including the bumps along the way.
  • Adaptable - you thrive on ambiguity and opportunities to be innovative and make a meaningful contribution to something you believe in.
  • Creative Problem Solver - through creative problem solving and effective simplicity, you constantly look to create meaningful results.
  • Humble - you know that while intelligence speaks, wisdom listens, and you have the humility to learn.
Remuneration and benefits: 
  • Better than market rate with equity plan
