Engineering at Bud

The software engineering team is tasked with solving highly technical problems to enable solutions that tangibly benefit the lives of millions of people. From how to scale our solutions to tens of millions of users in the most effective manner to integrating with hundreds of third-party businesses. Data is key to our business and we need passionate developers to help capture, store, transform and most importantly secure it.

A bit more about us

We’re a diverse group of people.

For us, an interest in people comes first; finance follows.

We believe that diversity will make us better

Bud’s mission is to make the money part of people’s lives simple. To get there, we need a workforce that is diverse as the people we create our products for. This means we need people who have different backgrounds and experiences, and who are diverse in age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, and ways of thinking. We truly believe that these differences will make us grow as a company and as a team. We strive to create a workplace and culture where our people are empowered, supported, given equal opportunities and can bring their authentic selves to work.
