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 Merchant Enablement team builds and maintains Client UX and APIs in Affirm’s Merchant Portal. The goal of the team is to reduce complexity of merchant onboarding and augment merchants’ underwriting and monitoring capabilities through high quality tooling and useful, delightful features.

We aim to make merchant onboarding into a turnkey service, and to empower merchants to optimize and manage all aspects of their Affirm integration, enabling them to grow their business through a data centric approach.

We are looking for an experienced Staff Engineer to join us to 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 Affirm’s merchant network.
