Backend / API Engineer, EU Payments (Full Stack JavaScript Engineer)

Permanent employee, Full-time · Remote

Your mission
Backend engineers build the core of SalesPower products, services and APIs.
As a platform company powering EU businesses, SalesPower processes payments, runs marketplaces, detects fraud, helps entrepreneurs start an internet business, and more. SalesPower's backend engineers work on the business logic for all of that. As a backend engineer, you will build and expand APIs and services and work with our partners to launch new payment methods, and services.

In that role, you’ll be making some of the most significant decisions for the company. You’ll get to work with other engineers to build delightful features that span various parts of the system.

We’re looking for people with a strong background or interest in building successful products and systems; you’re comfortable in dealing with lots of moving pieces; you have exquisite attention to detail; and you’re comfortable learning new technologies and systems.

You will:

  • Design, build, and maintain APIs, services, and systems across SalesPower
  • Debug production issues across services and multiple levels of the stack
  • Work with engineers across the company to build new features at large-scale
  • Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes
Your profile

You may be fit for this role if you:

  • Enjoy and have experience building APIs
  • Think about systems and services and write high quality code. We work mostly in JavaScript. However, languages can be learned: we care much more about your general engineering skill than knowledge of a particular language or framework.
  • Hold yourself and others to a high bar when working with production systems
  • Take pride in working on projects to successful completion involving a wide variety of technologies and systems.
  • Thrive in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts
  • Enjoy working with a diverse group of people with different expertise. Almost every role at SalesPower collaborates with some engineers, from Sales and Support in sharing feedback from our customers; to Legal and Accounting in supporting our systems for tracking money movement and reporting.
It’s not expected that any single candidate would have expertise across all of these areas. For instance, we have wonderful team members who are really focused on their customers’ needs and building amazing user experiences, but didn’t work on APIs before joining SalesPower.

You might work on:

  • Building a new API for our users, or iterating on existing APIs
  • Launching a new market or payment method
  • With our Analytics and Fraud teams to reduce chargebacks and declines
  • Building new tools for our business teams
  • Building new systems to securely store sensitive data
