Solution Delivery Engineering Manager (Remote)

Back to Careers

Sandbox is looking for an exceptional engineering manager who wants to reshape how software is built and distributed to financial institutions (FIs).  We have growing revenue, are backed by Y Combinator (W17), and have raised seed capital.

Product

Sandbox is a universal adapter for banks.  It provides financial institutions (FIs) a better way to integrate fintech software with their existing systems.

US regional/community banks and credit unions are looking to overhaul the digital experiences they deliver to customers. Increasingly, they solve this challenge by sourcing software from fintechs — new companies that specialize in building and operating financial services software.  Unfortunately, distributing new software to FIs has historically been a long and painful process because of data security and system integration hurdles.

Sandbox empowers FIs and vendors to quickly and safely build new integrations — our Glyue tool lets anyone who can use Excel formulas connect banking systems.  Furthermore, the platform’s fine-grained authentication and permissions model provides FIs with strict control over which people/software can access particular banking data and operations.

FIs and fintechs love the platform.  FIs are able to quickly and cost-effectively leverage cutting-edge solutions without compromising on integration; fintechs don’t need to spend time and money on activities outside of core product development and distribution.
