About PenChecks Trust

PenChecks Trust is the largest and most trusted independent provider of fully compliant retirement plan distribution services. The experts in Missing Participant and Default IRAs, we help plan providers, plan sponsors and third-party administrators reduce risk, lower administrative costs and increase efficiency.

Our comprehensive outsourced solutions include benefit payments processing, setting up Default IRA's, finding missing participants, handling uncashed checks, and more. Whether our clients need to make regular pension plan distributions or a large number of one-time payments, we offer cost-effective retirement distribution strategies that meet our clients' budget and their distribution processing needs.

Job Summary:

We have an opening for an experienced Senior Software Development Engineer to expand our team of engineers who are developing Payment Processing and Back Office infrastructure.

Just like everyone else, we want to hire unbelievably bright developers, who are a joy to work with, love to work with others, solve problems, listen well, and lead as appropriate. You should have a passion for creating applications and services that make developers' lives easier while helping them create their enterprise-ready applications. Limiting yourself to just one area of the technology stack would be unthinkable for this kind of developer, so we hope that you are comfortable doing everything from creating beautiful, friendly UIs, to crafting logical and easy to use APIs, all the way to writing distributed computing algorithms between applications running on entirely different platforms.

Since our team operates using a combination of agile development practices and processes, you'd be encouraged to write your code test first, and think about things like cycle time and WIP limits. All of this adds up to an exciting, challenging, and always interesting place to work, where hard problems are found and solved every day.

5+ years' of experience designing, building and operating highly available, highly reliable web-based systems

Familiarity with programming concurrent and/or distributed systems.
