Software Engineer

Telecommute · Houston, Texas, United States


Molecule Software, a SURGE Accelerator graduate, is hiring a full-stack engineer. As a member of our team, you'll help design, build, and deliver the very best commodities-trading software on the planet.

You'll get to build production software using Ruby on Rails, Ember, Go, Python, Docker, Kubernetes, and more—because we don't shy away from using cool tech in production. As a member of our test-driven team, you'll find yourself doing things the right way, most of the time. The problem domain is complex, and if you have experience (or interest) in finance, statistics, or calculus, this could be the gig for you. Sound interesting? Here's some more about the job:


  • Design, develop, and test new features for Molecule's next-gen trading platform
  • Help eliminate tech debt
  • Write efficient, maintainable, and reusable code and participate in and support the full continuous delivery pipeline
  • Write and maintain unit and feature tests, and review other team members' code and tests
  • Mentor team members
  • Learn new technologies (and help your teammates learn them too)
  • Help the company grow by contributing to open source projects, and by representing Molecule's well within the developer community

Experience & Qualifications:

  • 4+ years of experience developing full-stack applications with Ruby on Rails, Ember, Node, or other open-source technologies
  • High level of proficiency with Ruby, SQL, and JavaScript
  • Experience with DevOps and with container (e.g. Docker) and container management technologies (e.g. Kubernetes)
  • Experience with asynchronous processing
  • Experience with Agile software development
  • A disciplined approach to development, documentation and code structure

Nice to have:

  • BS or MS in Computer Science or related field
  • Experience in finance, or energy/commodities/equity trading
  • Experience with Postgres, Golang, Scala, Python, AWS, and/or TDD
  • Experience with enterprise-grade software and high-security environments
  • Experience working at a tech startup
  • Currently living in Houston, Austin, or Dallas TX (although we will hire remotely, or telecommuters, as well)
