Silicon Valley Bank | API Banking Engineer | San Francisco, CA | REMOTE(US) INTERNS http://docs.svbplatform.com

Enable the world of FinTech by building public APIs for commercial banking. We're using clojure & postgres to expose brand new, easy to use, well documented RESTful interfaces for clients. Among other projects we work on, our small team created the technical integration with Stripe that powers Atlas (https://stripe.com/atlas). Our team consists of former Facebook, Disqus, and Standard Treasury (YC S13) engineers; startups are in our DNA.

With an aggressive roadmap of new products we'd like to launch in 2017, we're looking to expand our team to help deliver new APIs. While we don't currently have any full time remote employees on our team, we are open to remote US-based engineers helping us become a fully-distributed team. We're also accepting intern applications for summer 2017. Contact Mike at api-jobs@svb.com for more information and to apply.


My experience applying as reference for others:

They provide no feedback re: evaluation and ignore emails entirely upon rejection.

^never received a response either.

Inconsiderate of people and the time they put into coding tests. Really disappointed and expected better, esp from SVB. Would not recommend applying.

completely disagree...

why using a throwaway account? if you are going to dis someone, at least stand up and don't hide.

most all companies ignore emails upon rejection (at least in my exp), don't take it personally.

my experience with svb has been the complete opposite. the initial programming test was short and sweet, shouldn't take much more than an hour. they reached out a bit after i submitted the quiz.

i've had a chance to speak with the crew and they are a great bunch.

I also disagree. SVB was straightforward and professional during the interview process with me.
