As a Tech Lead, you will be responsible for building and migrating to microservices, mainly using Golang.

Money Forward Cloud Accounting is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) for businesses, which automates and streamlines accounting by integrating data from various back-office related platforms and applications.

It was originally developed as a monolithic application with Ruby on Rails and already has a huge number of users.

We’ve been transforming this to microservices architecture, aiming to divide a large development team into smaller ones and deliver such a lot of value to users faster.
