Full Stack Engineer, Commerce

Remote
Full-time

Join Payor’s Commerce team to help us build the foundations that will power the next generation of online commerce. Payor’s payments products have helped to accelerate many of the world’s most innovative companies, but we believe it is still far too hard to build an e-commerce business today. We are applying Payor’s developer-centric approach to building the flexible, programmable primitives of commerce that will become the foundation of selling on the internet.

Adopting our core of interoperable APIs for modeling and managing products, orders, & fulfillment will allow merchants to rapidly customize and extend every layer in their e-commerce stack. These core models serve both our customers and many other teams at Payor; they are and will continue to be the foundation for our APIs for the next decade or more. It’s important that we get these APIs right: that we deeply consider the problems they are solving and that we ensure integrating against them is nothing short of an amazing experience.

The Commerce team owns an unusual mix of platform, infrastructure, and user problems. We are looking for people with a strong background or interest in working across these domains to build successful products or systems. You’re comfortable in dealing with lots of moving pieces; you have exquisite attention to detail; and you’re comfortable learning new technologies and systems.

You will:

  • Work with a wide range of systems, processes and technologies to own and solve problems from end-to-end
  • Create beautiful web surfaces and interactive dashboard experiences using technologies such as React, JavaScript and CSS
  • Design, build, and maintain elegant APIs, services, and systems across Payor’s engineering teams
  • Debug production issues across services and multiple levels of the stack
  • Collaborate with stakeholders across the organization such as product, design, infrastructure, and operations

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • At least 2+ years of professional software development experience
  • Worked on large scale web products as a generalist, fluidly moving between the frontend, backend, and anything it takes to solve problems and delight users
  • The ability to put yourself in the shoes of our users and be a steward of crafting great experiences for them
  • Thrived in a highly collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts
  • Enjoyed working with a diverse group of people with different expertise (for example, ¼ of Payor’s work in a country that’s different from the one they grew up in). Almost every role at Payor collaborates with some engineers, from Sales and Support in sharing feedback from our customers; to Legal and Accounting in supporting our systems for tracking money movement and reporting around the world.

It’s not expected that any single candidate would have expertise across all of these areas. For instance, we have wonderful team members who are really focused on their customers’ needs and building amazing user experiences, but didn’t work on APIs before joining Payor. What’s it like to work at Payor? Payor is helping the internet fulfill its potential as a platform for economic progress by building software tools that accelerate global economic access and technological development. Payor makes it easy to start, run and scale an internet business from anywhere in the world.

Payor is, at its heart, an engineering company. To provide a missing pillar of core internet infrastructure, we hire people with a broad set of technical skills (and from a wide variety of backgrounds) who are ready to take on some of the most challenging problems in the industry – from reliably handling 100M API requests per day, to building adaptive machine learning as a result of years of data science and infrastructure work, and enabling entrepreneurs worldwide to start a global internet business.

We look at Payor as a constant work in progress and the same is true of our people; for all of us, we believe the best is yet to come. We’re here to support each other in our curiosity and creativity – which we pursue through thoughtful discussion and knowledge-sharing among a diverse set of peers and colleagues.

We encourage all engineers to transition teams once every year and a half and also take on short-term projects with other teams across Payor. This enables engineers to learn how different parts of Payor work while also establishing stronger ties and cross-pollination between groups.

We contribute to existing open-source projects and the people working on them, and we release several tools as open-source.

We want to work in a company of warm, inclusive people who treat their colleagues exceptionally well. The kind of people who are committed to going out of their way to help other Payor’s in the short-term and pushing them to improve over the long-term (by helping them to get better at what they do).

We’re a highly cross-functional organization and view that as part of the fun: we design our space to encourage as much collaboration as possible. We have long tables in the kitchen for a reason (to enable everyone to meet new people and learn from them). We also have a culture of transparency that we carry through to email communication, ensuring that Payor’s all around the world have the information they need to make good local decisions.

In both our products and our people, we aim to reflect, represent and advocate for all of our users, globally. Our users transcend geography, culture and language; what we share, collectively, is a drive to create a fairer, more economically interconnected world.
