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 Repayment UX Engineering team is a full-stack engineering team located entirely in Europe, together with most of our cross-functional partners. We build and own user flows that enable over 15M consumers to repay their loans each year, processing over $20B annually. The ownership is end-to-end, beginning from user comms, and spanning across our web and mobile apps, along with a “backend for frontend” orchestration layer. We continuously innovate to make the product more user-friendly, more effective, and adapt to the needs of our rapidly expanding business. Our work is agile and fast-paced, shipping new code to production almost every two-week sprint, and rigorously measuring the impact it has on the behavior of our users.

We are looking for a highly motivated engineering manager to empower the team to implement our ambitious plans. There’s a very high degree of ownership in the role: you will know precisely what your objectives are, you’ll get everything you need to achieve those objectives, and you’ll be free to choose your own path to reach them. You’ll have the opportunity to share your knowledge with others, and learn from very experienced teammates and collaborators. Come join us!

  • Coach and mentor employees to increase their impact through regular performance development and feedback conversations.
  • Foster a respectful and supportive environment for all team members that effectively leverages the diversity of the team.
