Working with the world's leading financial institutions, our software tackles the complex challenges of providing financial advice through an intuitive and engaging user experience.


We're looking for talented and highly motivated senior software engineers to join our team. As a growth stage technology company, NextCapital is seeking developers eager to be part of a team, working closely with every part of the company from graphic designers to the executive team.

* Write high quality, well-tested, and scalable code

* Grow professionally and learn from other accomplished developers through pair coding while helping your peers to do the same
* Make an immediate impact by quickly getting up to speed and building features from start to finish
* Collaborate on system architecture
* Review and provide feedback on code in development
* Evaluate new technologies, prototype new approaches to problems and make the business case for change



* You have 3+ years of professional software engineering experience

We believe in using the best tool for the job, and also relying on the strengths of our team.
