  • Affirm is redefining credit with a focus on honesty and consumer-friendly practices.

  • The Software Engineer I will lead projects in building APIs and webhooks for partner integrations.

  • Opportunities for professional growth include working with cutting-edge technologies and collaborating cross-functionally.


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 Partner Interfaces group at Affirm builds the APIs and webhooks that power all of Affirm’s integrations with merchants and partners.  The Partner Interfaces sub-team represents the portion of this group that manages partners - large customers such as Shopify that themselves manage multiple merchants.  Its job is to create and manage the APIs and other tools that power the experience in the websites of those partners, such as checkout and merchant onboarding, as well as orchestrate the end-to-end integration solution for them. 
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 merchant network.

What you'll do

  • Work with product and engineering managers to identify and plan projects based on the team goals and resources.

  • Drive detailed project definition, design, cross-functional alignment, estimation, in addition to task break-down, delivery, monitoring, and maintenance.

  • Consistently generate simple and elegant designs, 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

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, a related field, or equivalent training/fellowship/work experience.

  • Proven CS fundamentals and hands on coding and debugging experience using modern software delivery methods to develop APIs using Python/Kotlin/Node.

  • Have previously worked on large scale coding projects

  • 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.

  • Excited to learn and thrive in a fast pace environment

  • Exposure to any of the following technologies is a plus, but not required: API development, Python, MySql, ElasticSearch, AWS, Docker, and Flask/Celery.
