Software Engineer - API/Infrastructure

Senior Backend Engineer - API 

Remote


Argyle is a remote-first, Series A fast-growing tech startup that has reimagined how we can use employment data.

Renting an apartment, buying a car, refinancing a home, applying for a loan. The first question that they will ask you is, "how do you earn your money?" Wouldn’t you think that information foundational to our society would be simple to manage, transfer and control? Well, it’s not!

Argyle provides businesses with a single global access point to employment data. Any company can process work verifications, gain real-time transparency into earnings and view worker profile details.

We are a fun and passionate group of people, all working remotely across 19 different countries and counting. We are now looking for Senior Backend Engineers to come and join our team.
