Duties and Responsibilities

We're building a modern banking platform at First Republic. That means building a domain-driven model of banking and its various subcomponents behind a coherent, composable, modern API layer. That API layer uses versioned REST services and event sourcing. If you're interested in object-functional programming; functional reactive programming; and other similar architectural and implementation patterns, you're going to feel at home here. After all, what is banking but a series of events over time?
Deposits, lending, treasury - the field is wide open.
