Affirm is reinventing credit to make it more honest and friendly, giving consumers the flexibility to buy now and pay later without any hidden fees or compounding interest.

The Consumer Comms Engineering team at Affirm builds the APIs, data pipelines and frameworks for all consumer communications reaching millions of Affirm users. The team partners closely with business stakeholders like product marketing, partner marketing and other product teams to send out the most effective comms while optimizing for a great consumer experience. The team is on a mission to re-architect major components to modernize comms at Affirm with a special focus on availability and reliability of the system.

We are looking for a highly motivated and experienced Software Engineer to join us and help fulfill our vision. The work will be challenging due to the speed at which the market is growing, and the work involved will directly impact the growth trajectory of the Affirm user network.

What you'll do:

  • Work with product and engineering managers to identify and plan projects based on the team goals and resources.
  • Implement detailed project definition, design, cross-functional alignment, estimation, in addition to task break-down, delivery, monitoring, and maintenance.
  • Consistently generate simple and elegant implementations, and write high-quality code that can be easily understood and leveraged by others.
  • Build relationships with people across engineering and other organizations for the design, implementation, roll-out and maintenance of projects.
  • Actively participate in making your team and workplace an inclusive environment for people from all backgrounds.

What we look for:

  • 2 - 4 years of experience as a software engineer
  • Passion for working with cross-functional teams including Product, Design, Analytics and Business teams.
  • Ability to synthesize complex business, product, and technical requirements to consistently produce high quality system designs and software.
  • Experience collaborating in the team to solve large, potentially ambiguous projects involving multiple stakeholders and contributors.
  • A humble team-player who places the needs of others first, participates in the development of peers on the team, and mentors and guides more junior members in areas where they may have less experience.
  • Exposure to any of the following technologies is a plus, but not required: API development, Python, Kotlin, SQL, AWS, Snowflake, SFMC, event-driven architectures, and data pipelines.
