Is platform & infrastructure engineering your passion? Do you enjoy building teams and seeing your teammates excel in complex technical and business domain areas? Do you enjoy hands-on coding culture and player-coach style leadership? On the Platform Engineering team at Affirm you will find a unique opportunity to leverage your leadership skills, while continuing to be hands on and responsible for the design and implementation of some of the most innovative software solutions.
Affirm’s Platform team is the backbone of our Engineering team. The team is responsible for building awesome products, frameworks and systems that allow the rest of engineering to produce and deploy software that is scalable, reliable, instrumented, secure, correct, consistent, and well tested. Scaling a global infrastructure shared across multiple merchants, vendors and products is hard. Our consistency and security requirements make scaling harder. Hard problems fascinate us and our Platform engineers work with all of our Engineering and Product teams to find simple, consistent, clean and scalable solutions to our business requirements.
What You'll Do
What We Look For
At Affirm we are using technology to re-imagine and re-build core parts of financial infrastructure to enable friendlier and more transparent financial products and services that improve lives.
We believe the financial industry is fundamentally broken. Not only is the core infrastructure built with technology from the 1970s, but there are a dwindling number of people who say "I trust my bank to look out for me". It doesn’t have to be this way, and it’s our mission to fix this problem.
We are based in San Francisco; founded by Max Levchin (founding CTO of PayPal), Jeff Kaditz (CDO DeNA/ngmoco), and Nathan Gettings (founding CTO of Palantir); and building a team of exceptionally talented people to join us on our mission.
