About The Company & Job

Hypto's primary mission is to democratize access to finance like never before. Hypto Web Services (HWS) is taking this vision forward by developing a platform that simplifies complex financial problems and bundles them into easily accessible backend services. This secondary layer of primitive web services around existing cloud providers will enable businesses to innovate rapidly and build a wide range of financial user-cases.

Hypto's software engineers develop web services that fundamentally change how developers and businesses interact with elementary financial components. Our web services need to handle requests at scale, and extend well beyond payments use-cases. We're looking for engineers who bring fresh ideas from all areas, including information retrieval, distributed computing, large-scale system design, networking, data storage and security.

While your focus will primarily be back-end service development, you will also get exposure to financial products and services built by other startups and developers. With a passion to bring massive impact, you will work on hardcore computer science problems and distributed technologies with our newly launching services. As part of this effort, you will work closely with highly skilled engineering teams who are not afraid of taking bold bets.


  • Design and develop highly-available, scalable, performant, multi-tenant web services with a developer-first mindset.
  • Design, develop, test, deploy, maintain, and improve software for other internal micro-services.
  • Build libraries and frameworks that support large, complex web services and connectors.
  • Participate in open-sourcing libraries and other software that is built in-house.
  • Be willing to make bold bets and work in a highly dynamic, fast-paced startup.
  • Manage project priorities, deadlines, and deliverables.
  • High focus on API documentation and technical content.
  • Contribute to engineering efforts from planning, execution to delivery.
  • Solving cross-cutting complex engineering problems across the company.

Hypto is a highly empathetic employer, an equal opportunity workplace and is an affirmative action employer. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, caste, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability or gender identity.
