Job Description

Why join us:
We are on a mission to improve the financial well-being of consumers and merchants through smart solutions.

We believe in building financial solutions for consumers that match their financial wellness needs, their cultural needs and their financial potential, and we recognise the importance they play for merchants and the broader economy.

The Backend Engineering team is responsible for building out API and backend services that power all Smartpay products and experiences including Checkout, SDK, Merchant and Consumer apps, and internal tools that increase the effectiveness and efficiency of all business operations.

As a founding member of the Engineering team:
  • You will own and shape our API and backend services from end to end.
  • You will work with Scala in a pure functional programming codebase, running in a cloud native environment.
  • You will collaborate closely with Product and UX engineering team on API design and integration.
  • You will contribute to planning and technical design. You will identify opportunities to improving our practices, process and quality of our API and services.

We’re looking for someone who:
  • has a track record of building API and backend services.
  • has experience with functional programming—ideally using Scala—or a strong desire to quickly ramp up on this.
  • is customer-obsessed and loves crafting great customer experiences that meet our users’ business objectives, and often exceed their expectations.
  • prefers simple solutions over complex ones especially ones that iteratively evolve and scale.
  • has the ability to communicate complex ideas clearly, and work effectively in an environment involving different teams and stakeholders.
  • has a strong ownership and growth mindset, and understands that winning happens in a goal-focused team of accountable players: you actively look to—and help to—grow and improve, while seeking and providing feedback to that goal.

What Smartpay offers:
  • Growth: joining a growing company in a growing industry that has a strong believe that it can only achieve its true potential if its employees grow as well. We invest in coaching to help unlock that potential.
  • Challenge: joining a company with A-level talent (Stripe, Facebook, Google, Adyen, IDEO, etc.) where high standards are infectious and you'll quickly drive business results exceeding your own expectations.
  • Autonomy: operate in an environment where you'll be entrusted responsibilities, but also be trusted in how you'll manage to achieve these. Whether that's through flexible working arrangements or equipping you with the right tools to be effective.
  • Inclusiveness: joining a company of warm, inclusive people who treat their colleagues exceptionally well. The kind of people who are committed to going out of their way to help other team members in the short-term and pushing them to improve over the long-term (by helping them to get better at what they do).
  • Relocation: once governments allow, Smartpay can sponsor your work visa if you would like relocate to Tokyo.
