Amount is excited to announce the recent strategic acquisition of LinearFT, a leading small business banking technology provider. Learn more about the acquisition here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20220201005132/en/Amount-acquires-Linear-Financial-Technologies

Amount, a leading technology provider for financial institutions, is growing and we are looking for ambitious and self-driven Software Engineers to join our team. You will be responsible for implementing partners on our platform and developing custom solutions that power the processing of financial services transactions.
Our teams are cross-functional, and own delivery from end-to-end. The ideal candidate is a generalist - comfortable working across both front-end and backend, and even sometimes data and DevOps disciplines. If you are a “T-shaped”, specialized generalist that can anchor a particular discipline within a team, but you are also comfortable operating outside of a single expertise, you will be a great fit with the engineering culture at Amount.
