We sat down with Lee Duan, Director Of Engineering, to hear his perspective on the team and unique opportunities at Figure.

What does your team work on?
Figure Pay is an alternative banking platform that is building out the future of banking. Our goal is to offer a compelling, easy to use banking and credit solution for the underbanked.

What’s interesting about the work?
You will work on greenfield project development using the latest tech stack. Frequently, an Engineer will own a number of microservices and take each from scratch to completion. You will have an immediate impact on the execution of a direct to consumer product that people will use every day.
You will get exposure to different teams and products and will always be working on a priority that is moving the company forward.

What makes your team unique?
We don’t hire and segment engineers into a specific role. Everyone is encouraged to develop new skills, whether it’s moving across the tech stack or learning new business domains; there are significant opportunities to grow one’s career here. Growth is only limited by what each developer is willing to put into their work.

How do you lead your team?
I am very product and goal-oriented. We set ambitious goals, collaborate fully with one another, and focus on getting things done.

We work together as peers and I hire people that want to work together to build the best products possible.  We promote a flat organizational structure where you are encouraged to contribute to the decision-making process through consensus. I encourage my team to own and drive each and every project to completion.
