Job Description


Pakistan is faced with a housing shortage of 10 million currently growing by 1 million every year. The population, 80% without a bank account, has been starved off house financing solutions for years. Pakistan’s housing finance-GDP ratio is one of the lowest in the world – 0.25% (South Asia: 3%, Bangladesh: 3%, India: 11%).   

Trellis’ mission is to fill this gap by providing affordable green mortgage solutions to low and middle income groups in Pakistan. This is expected to significantly boost financial inclusion, home ownership and economic activity in the country. The senior management team has a combined experience of over 50 years in international banking, hedge funds, capital markets and financial technology. 

As a new company, we need self-motivated, driven generalists with senior-level experience. For driven individuals, this role provides a unique opportunity to grow rapidly and work with many types of technologies. We will heavily rely on cloud-native, open source technologies with the intent to give back and make a difference. In addition to supporting our business needs, you will have the chance to have a public impact on multiple open source communities making technology more accessible to all. 

Job Title: Site Reliability Engineer

As we build up our analytics and data science practice, you will assist with the operationalization of the data pipelines, analytics infrastructure, and machine learning models produced by our risk team.   

As we grow, there will be opportunities to specialize and/or to move into leadership roles.

  • Diagnose, debug and document issues in both applications and systems.   
  • Automate monitoring, maintenance and support related tasks
