Senior Software Engineer, Data Experience
About the role:
Forter is looking for a Senior Full stack Engineer to develop and cultivate new products for fraud detection. More than in other teams, the engineering decisions made by Forter’s product team need to balance not only engineering factors, but also user experience, aesthetics, legal and financial considerations, and a general sense for what's most important.
Engineers on the Product team have a knack for making tools powerful without compromising their ease of use. This applies to both visual tools (like our customers’ dashboard and our internal analysts’ system) and programming tools (like our API).

We thoughtfully craft solutions that empower our clients, enabling them to derive insights, come up with better business decisions, monitor and even control the traffic coming through their platform. Our work is in the conjunction of engineering, analytics and business - hence putting us in the core of Forter’s doing.
We are highly adaptable, working with a diverse stack of technologies, and always aspiring to create the best value for our clients.
Join us if you are passionate about building beautiful solutions and working in a vibrant and young environment.
What you will be doing:
- Influence how our product offering looks and behaves.
- Design and implement unique solutions for data interfaces for clients’ platforms.
- Take full ownership of a feature set from the first discussion to bringing it to live on the site.
- Self-managing project planning, milestones, designs, and estimations
- Holding yourself and others to a high standard when working with production systems. We take pride in our tests, monitoring & alerting abilities just as we do with our systems
