Two years in, and after raising an 11.5M$ Series A round, it’s time for a great Front-End Developer to join our team.

nesto is on a mission to offer a positive, empowering, and transparent property financing experience, simplified from start to finish.

Powered by our technology, we screen the whole market in seconds to find the most affordable mortgage while our commission-free experts provide customers with unbiased support along the process. People that are using our technology love it.

Our tech team is composed of designers, software engineers, and product people who work closely with our Mortgage Brokers, Underwriters, and Customer Success teams. We’re very collaborative and fortunate to have a multi-disciplinary team that brings a variety of perspectives.

Several tech projects are progressing in parallel at a high delivery pace.Our technology stack allows customers to shop and access mortgage products by enabling them to complete their mortgage application digitally.

Our app is written in JavaScript/TypeScript.  Web is written in TypeScript (React) and is designed to be simple to use.

Most of our back-end code is written in go, using chi and sqlx.

The infrastructure is mainly running on GCP and is administered completely programmatically, via Terraform. We’re using several GCP services — Storage, Container Registry, Cloud Build, Monitoring, Logging, SQL, Pub/Sub, etc. Most of the code is deployed in containers on Kubernetes cluster on GCP Kubernetes Engine. 

The test automation uses tools like Testify (unit/integration), Docker-Compose (integration), Cypress (e2e). The entire development and deployment pipeline is chained together with GitHub, GCP Cloud Build, Container Registry and Kubernetes Engine.
