Engineering at Brex

We believe that engineers should accelerate the business through technology, and collaborate across multiple teams to accomplish that. 


Teams are autonomous, value inclusivity, eager to learn, teach and constantly improve how things work. The software we build today is the foundation for dozens of Brex systems in the future, so engineers have a strong sense of ownership and accountability and take pride in their craft.
