Spreedly is a rapidly growing, payments technology firm, with headquarters located in downtown Durham, North Carolina. We are a stable, growth stage company with a team that enjoys working together and is remote friendly and inclusive. Our culture is based around our dedication to a meaningful work/life balance, and our commitment to that is reflected in the way we’ve structured the company, as well as the benefits and perks that we offer to employees.
We’ve developed a powerful infrastructure that is central to the massive and growing payments market. We’re growing incredibly fast too. In fact, we just raised $75M from Spectrum Equity. And we’re processing over one million transactions per day.
Join us as we continue to build a great financial technology software company in Durham, NC. We’re hiring innovators like you.
Principals only, no recruiters
We’re seeking a mid level Software Engineer to help with the next exciting phase of our growth.
You’ll be spending your time working on the engineering team building functionality for customers. Building product at Spreedly is somewhat unique in that our main product is a payments API used by other developers. So“designing a UI” often means thinking through how you would want a given API to work if you were using it, and when we “work on Javascript”, it’s usually building libraries for other developers to use in their own pages. “Adding a feature for a customer” could mean working through how to securely enable a developer to do something interesting with a credit card number. Super challenging and fun, we think! And since we work with credit card data on a daily basis, thinking about security is a way of life at Spreedly, as is building sustainable processes to keep that information safe (and our auditors happy).
Must Haves
  • The skills required to refactor and add features to a large but reasonably clean codebase.
  • An ability to design components and services with guidance from your senior peers.
  • The ability to operate semi-autonomously, sorting your own immediate priorities out of the ever-shifting needs of a startup environment.
  • A willingness to be a generalist and dig into new things you’ve never done before.
  • Excellent written communications, and a willingness to use them to document your work as necessary.
  • A quiet confidence in your ability to learn new tech as necessary. Today we work primarily with Ruby, Rails, Elixir, Phoenix, Riak, Kafka, Postgres, Redis, and Linux … but are always pragmatically evaluating new languages and tools
We’re constantly striving to have the fairest and most productive hiring process possible. We want to ensure that every candidate is treated equally and our interactions are designed with that goal in mind.
