Posted on Friday, October 6, 2023

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 Engineering Manager to join us and help lead this team. 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

  • Drive sprint planning, resource allocations, tradeoffs, and prioritization conversations with business and technical stakeholders to define epics in Jira and manage the quality of deliverables to production.
  • Collaborate with Product managers, cross-functional engineering teams, designers, and analysts to define product roadmap and execute a plan to build practical technology capabilities.
  • Participate in quarterly planning and work closely with peers and teams to remove impediments, articulate tradeoffs, and garner resources.
  • Provide tailored coaching, feedback, and mentoring for Engineers and inspire a team of full-stack engineers.
  • Manage on-call processes to respond to performance and reliability issues.
  • Establish best practices for coordinating escalation to resolve issues and minimize risks.
  • Demonstrate humility to admit mistakes, grow from failures, and build a culture of continuous improvement.

What we look for

  • Bachelor's degree or above in Computer Science or a related technical discipline and good communication skills.
  • 2+ years of engineering management experience and ideal experience collaborating with distributed teams in distant time zones.
  • Passion for working with cross-functional teams, including Product, Design, Analytics, and Business.
  • Demonstrated experience in building and scaling platforms and distributed systems that require high availability, resilience, and meeting stringent SLO objectives is required.
  • The ability to leverage observability and tracking tools to gather data for informed decision-making is required.
We offer a competitive package, with some highlights listed below:
  • Flexible Spending Wallets for tech, food and lifestyle
  • Generous time off policies
  • Away Days - wellness days to take off work and recharge
  • Learning & Development programs
  • Parental leave
  • Robust health benefits

We are able to offer visa sponsorship for this role, but do require that someone is based in Spain for the role.
