Placid Money is a new fintech that changes how Americans use $1T (yes, trillion:) of credit card debt.

Placid turns debt into savings by:

  • Refinancing expensive credit card debt.
  • Building investments from interest and fees.

Placid is backed by Y Combinator and other leading global investors.

We are looking for an experienced backend engineer, no matter what programming language you typically use, to help us develop core fintech features and resolve critical growth bottlenecks.

It's a great opportunity for those who love or would like to deep dive into Functional Programming and get production-grade experience with Haskell. You'll be a part of a tight team, optimizing the core functions of the product.

  • Haskell + AWS + Postgres.
  • Web-backend with Persistent/Esqueleto (DSL for type-safe SQL queries) and Servant (DSL for type-safe API).
  • All infrastructure is hosted on top of Docker and AWS, entirely automated with Haskell code.
  • You'll be writing code in Haskell and occasionally work with our PostgreSQL database and AWS infrastructure.
  • Prior knowledge of Haskell is not required. We offer a quick Haskell bootcamp to help you ramp up if your experience with Haskell is limited.
  • If you don’t have much experience with AWS or SQL, don't worry — we'll ensure you have the training and support you need.


We are on a mission to make credit cheaper for those who need it most and help people leverage credit to become better off financially.

Our guiding principle is maximum impact, minimum disturbance — giving our customers the easiest way to create savings out of debts without much disruption to their financial lives.


We're a fully emote squad. We praise autonomy, self-motivation, and self-management. We expect everyone to truly care about what they do, take pride in how they do it, and strive for self and team improvement.

We believe we're working on some really cool things that will make a dent for society as a whole and hope everyone who joins will find it fascinating to connect the dots between their work and the impact it has.


  • Solid understanding of how distributed web systems work.
  • Solid experience with any of the statically-typed or/and functional languages (like Scala / Kotlin / Java / C# / F# / Rust / Erlang / Elixir / Clojure).
  • Basic Haskell knowledge (courses and pet-projects are enough).
  • Good English reading/writing skills.

You will get

  • Stable compensation $2,500-$7,000.
  • Flexible hours, remote setup.
  • Autonomy and influence.
  • Potential equity options.
  • Applied Haskell experience in a large-scale setting.
  • Globally resellable and highly in-demand experience in FinTech.
  • Work closely with the founding team in an open, fast-moving, and fun environment.
  • Experience with launching products in the most competitive market in the world.
  • Steep learning curve across a wide range of hard and soft skills and responsibilities.
  • Contribute to building products with a big social mission and world-class customer experiences.
