About the Money Movement Domain:
The Money Movement Domain at Wealthsimple is responsible for making it fast, seamless, and easy to move money into, between, and out of Wealthsimple accounts.
We help clients manage their finances of over $5 billion; enabling them to fund, withdraw and move money in their accounts seamlessly – most often we do this with no human intervention and in hours not days! To accomplish this, we’ve built industry-leading technology focused on automation and integrate various third-party technologies to move money in, out and between accounts. We’re highly data-backed, leveraging our insights to look at making our experiences faster, more resilient and client friendly.
It takes a lot of well-crafted technology to accomplish this at scale. As our clients and product offerings grow, we need talented engineers who can help us architect a robust platform. People that are excited about the opportunity to reduce complexity, can help set the vision and standards for others in the company, and can build impactful software at scale.
