Software Engineer - Internship Summer 2018

As an intern at Affirm, you will be treated as a contributing member of our top-notch engineering team, and as such you will work on meaningful projects and push code. Recent grads and interns in the past have built a real-time high-throughput data processing pipeline that ties our infrastructure together, built out our proprietary financial platform that is central to our long term company mission, and built out our extensive automated testing framework.
We are excited to meet and consider strong students for (full-time) internships at any time of the year; however, our main program operates in the Summer months. We are a fast-moving team that is happy to tailor projects to your interests and push your abilities.

  • What We Look For

  • Passion and drive to change consumer banking for the better
  • Experience with Python, C/C++ or Java
  • Continuous deployment and  automated testing frameworks

  • Strong Communication skills
    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.
