As a Senior Software Engineer at Kount, you'll join a team of engineers building our next generation fraud detection and prevention system in the Amazon cloud. Since the techniques and technologies fraudsters use are continuously evolving, you'll encounter and solve interesting problems as you build creative solutions to protect our clients.

Specifically, you'll leverage Agile and continuous delivery methodologies to build containerized services written in Golang and deployed via GitLab CI to Kubernetes (EKS). You'll research and evaluate new technologies to determine if and how we leverage them, so it's important that you're comfortable learning new concepts quickly.
