  • Prototype and iterate until the solutions are impactful and well polished.
  • Tweak and evolve our processes. You can always help the team release faster and safer.

Tech Stack

We are technology agnostic at Onfido , We are not looking for you to have experience in all these technologies. As long as you’re open to learning, please apply.

We currently use Python, Ruby, and Elixir for our service code; AWS for the underlying infrastructure.

As an architect, you will help influence some of these decisions, create solutions using these, and also help us set best practices for these tools. You can learn more about our product engineering team and the work we do on our blog .
