Mogo is bringing social responsibility, accessibility, and even a little fun to financial services. We’re a diverse team of thinkers and doers focused on bringing some creative destruction to a world dominated by big banks, hidden fees, and old ways of doing things. We may have just IPOed, but being big doesn’t mean that we’re going to stop shipping and adapting fast. By leveraging technology and design, we’re building a financial brand that’s transforming the way Canadians access, manage, and control credit. The vision? Financial products for everyday life that we ourselves would want to use. This is only the beginning.

So this position requires a deep knowledge of related tech like Apache/nginx, passenger/unicorn, MySQL, Redis & Haproxy. Experience with Docker and running dockerized microservices in AWS is a big plus.

To be successful, you’ll need to work closely with several technology teams. You’ll work with the development teams that build the products and with the application support team that maintains them. You’ll also work with IT who maintains the corporate servers, networks and firewalls.
