Backend / API Engineer, Account Abstractions & APIs

Remote (london)
Full-time

Payor’s mission is to increase the GDP of the internet. We’re building towards a future where everyone has equal access to the global economy.

We help our customers — from independent creatives and Day 1 startups to storied brands and multinational corporations — start, operate, and scale an online business from anywhere in the world. To succeed in that mission, our execution must match our ambition.

The Accounts Abstractions and APIs team owns the foundational models and data primitives representing real-world organizations and business models. We’re looking for thoughtful, creative, and rigorous engineers to join a growing, high-impact team.

This is an exciting opportunity to shape the future of reliable, massively scalable APIs at the heart of Payor’s platform.

We hope you’ll join us.

You will:

  • Scope, design, and implement high-performance APIs and services
  • Hide complexity from our users behind simple yet powerful abstractions
  • Collaborate with engineers and product managers to deliver robust and comprehensive interfaces to core account and financial primitives
  • Influence the technical direction of Payor’s next generation platform of distributed services
  • Develop and execute against both short- and long-term roadmaps
  • Make thoughtful trade-offs that consider business priorities, user needs, and a sustainable technical foundation

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • A user-first mindset in everything they build
  • An orientation towards impact — on their own team, throughout Payor, and across the world
  • A high standard, for themself and others, when working with production systems
  • Open communication skills — ask questions, assume good intentions, and default to transparency
  • The desire to proactively seek feedback from users, teammates, and subject matter experts
  • Rigor and empathy that help them thrive in a collaborative and high-performance environment
  • A love for helping those around them grow and learn — and a love for working with those who do the same
  • Creativity when thinking about the big things and understanding of the nuance of the small ones
  • Pride in owning projects to successful completion involving a wide variety of technologies and systems
  • The tools to build holistically; from specs and documentation to implementation, testing, deployment, and measuring impact
  • The ability to balance speed, complexity, and scope in service of user needs
