Senior Software Engineer - Data Infrastructure


Affirm is reinventing credit to make it more honest and friendly, giving consumers the flexibility to buy now and pay later without any hidden fees or compounding interest.

The vision for the Data@ Affirm team is to enable a culture that empowers everyone by the use of actionable, reliable, and readily available data when building a product or making a decision. Our team is responsible for frameworks for all things data including the OLAP storage, data replication, macro-batch processing, stream processing, data modeling, data exploration, data visualization, etc. Affirm is growing rapidly and so is the need for reliable and high availability frameworks. If solving infrastructure challenges at scale excites you, come join us!

What you’ll do

  • Design and build data infrastructure systems, services and tools to handle new Affirm products and business requirements that securely scale over millions of users and their transactions.
  • Build frameworks and services which will be used by other engineering teams at Affirm to manage billions of dollars in loans and power customer experiences.
  • Improve the reliability and efficiency of our core systems.
  • Work cross-functionally with various engineering and analytics teams to identify and execute on new opportunities in data infrastructure.

What we look for

  • Experience building and owning large-scale, geographically distributed backend systems.
  • Skilled at developing and debugging in one or more programming languages.
  • Working knowledge of Relational and NoSQL databases.
  • Experience building scalable data processing systems using MapReduce and Spark.
  • Knowledge of Python/Kotlin or the ability to learn them quickly.
  • Experience with (or want to learn about) operating system internals, filesystems, databases, network, concurrency frameworks.
  • Experience with AWS and/or other cloud providers.
  • Eager to learn new things and have a growth mindset.
  • Experience working in the data infrastructure domain is a plus.
  • Working knowledge of OLAP systems like Snowflake or Redshift is a plus.
  • BS, MS or PhD in Computer Science, Engineering or a related technical field.
