• Senior Engineer, Payments

    About Us

    Venmo was founded on the principles of breaking down the intimidating barriers around financial transactions to make them intuitive, friendly, and even fun. And it worked: people love sending money with Venmo, and we’re growing by leaps and bounds!

    But we’re only just getting started. We want to take that magic of sending money with Venmo and cascade it into every place where people use money. That means connecting people to their money in the most intuitive and fun way possible, then connecting people with each other. Users already love Venmo, but we know there are lots of things we haven’t thought of to make the experience of using Venmo even more delightful and valuable. All that’s going to take a lot of figuring out. Let’s figure it out together!

    Engineering at Venmo

    At Venmo, we are creating a product that people love. We strive to create a delightful user experience while connecting the world and empowering people through payments. We are looking for intellectually curious people who want to be inspired and inspire others to change the world.

    Engineering is a craft, and at Venmo we want the internals of our software to be as elegant as the end user experience we are designing. We spend our days scaling our payment backend services and building new features to meet and exceed our user’s needs and wants. We teach and learn from one another, and push each other to be at our creative and analytical best. We work to push our technology forward with respect to functionality, performance, reliability and scalability.

    Senior Payments Engineer

    As a Member of Technical Staff 1 for Venmo Payments Engineering you will act as a senior engineer and subject matter expert for the Payments Platform Engineering team. You will have the opportunity to work on one of the biggest payments platform that caters to 27.4 million monthly active users and estimated to have a transaction volume of 100 billion dollars in 2019. And we have a YoY growth rate of 70%. Given all these fun challenges, we are a fast-paced organization going through rapid growth that is solving technical challenges at exponential scale. As an organization, we have a strong culture of committing to goals and delivering on timelines.

    We are looking for technologists with the highest levels of technical talent, programming, communication skills with a keen desire to deeply understand our product.

    Things you'll do:

    • Consult on, design, estimate and implement new and refactored software services on the platform to better facilitate money movements securely, reliably and at scale. Take ownership for quality of design and implementation of software components
    • Deliver high quality code on time and follow SDLC process
    • Lead initiatives and mentor junior engineers
    • Interact with various non-engineering teams such as product, support, finance operations and senior leadership

    What we are looking for:

    • 7+ yrs experience in all phases of enterprise software design, development and testing
    • 7+ yrs experience Java, Python or equivalent high-level programming language
    • 3+ yrs experience with RDBMS and NoSQL data stores, caching solutions (e.g. Redis, ElastiCache) and messaging/queuing protocols/systems such as Kafka/AMQP/RabbitMQ
    • Ability to lead projects and mentor all levels of engineering staff, along with managing relationships with Product, Engineering Operations and non-technical business and support teams
    • Experience working in an agile setup
    • Strong communication skills with the ability to understand and explain technical issues to a non-technical audience

      In this presentation, Java developers will learn all about the broad support AWS provides to develop, build, and deploy Java applications on AWS. Services covered:

      • AWS Tools & SDKs
      • Codestar
      • Lambda
      • AWS Fargate
      • Amazon Corretto

       

      There will be a demo on how to quickly get a Spring Boot application up and running within Fargate (a serverless container offering from AWS) using the Cloud Development Kit.

      The Cloud Development Kit (CDK) is a new project aimed at easily creating Infrastructure as Code. It allows you to express AWS infrastructure in programming languages such as Java or TypeScript. This allows you to write logic such as loops and inheritance that enables developers to easily construct sophisticated AWS environments using the full power of Java to specify and materialize an infrastructure, including base provisioning and beyond.

      With software projects becoming more and more complex, delivering new features into production quickly and safely has become a major challenge for most software organizations today. Making sure developers are able to develop and deploy new features in rapid cycles is a key success factor, but this task has long been neglected. The most successful software organizations are prioritizing this key success factor through a new practice called Developer Productivity Engineering. This practice is based on a culture where the entire organization collaborates to maximize developer productivity.

      This talk will address the questions:

      • What are the challenges organizations are facing regarding developer productivity?

      • Who is responsible for maximizing developer productivity?

      • Which skills are required in developer productivity engineering?

      • What tools do teams use to measure and improve their productivity?
