Senior Software Engineer , Merchant Engagement 🔥

At the Merchant Engagement Engineering team, we make products that are a joy for developers to integrate, thus making it easy for Merchants and Partners to unlock the value of being part of the Affirm network. Our goal is to build a flexible, scaleable, robust platform to provide the best possible purchasing experience be it online or in-store. 

We are seeking a Senior Software Engineer to build out financial products and features providing new levels of accessibility and flexibility to our users. You will architect, design, and implement new API and microservice interfaces to manage every users’ transaction with Affirm. You will also use your technical skillset to find opportunities to improve the performance and reliability of the systems that drive the user journey through purchasing with Affirm.

We are experiencing explosive growth with millions of customers across thousands of merchants in-store and online, and your technical leadership will be a key enabler of that growth. Come join us as we build a beloved, lasting financial services brand predicated on honesty and trust. It’s going to be an amazing ride!

What You'll Do

  • Technical strategy for broad or complex requirements with insightful and forward-looking approaches that go beyond the direct team and solve large open-ended problems

  • Participating in the strategic development of methods, techniques, and evaluation criteria for projects and programs

  • Actively owning checkout systems and defining their long-term health, while also improving the health of surrounding systems

  • Collaborating with engineers within our team and across the organization to build the next generation of the checkout platform

  • Improving engineering standards, tooling, and processes throughout the organization

What We Look For

  • 5-7+ years of experience as a software engineer with leadership responsibilities

  • You mentor other engineers in a technical capacity through sharing your learnings and providing feedback that will help the team grow

  • You have a proven track record of developing, testing, and shipping high-quality software at scale

  • Experience building thoughtfully designed, highly performant interfaces

  • Product-centric thinking -- we care just as much about the product experience (ours, our stakeholders', and our company's) as we do the design of our engineering systems.

  • You enjoy leading technical architecture discussions and drive technical decisions within your team and beyond

  • You communicate clearly both verbally and in writing. If anything, you trend towards over-communication

  • You are empathetic to the user experience and thoughtful about what we can do to make it better
