Bread is a technology company that aims to transform the way the world shops online. We build tools, technologies and APIs that allow e-commerce merchants to integrate installment loan financing and other alternative payment products  anywhere in their customers’ shopping journey. Bread was started in 2014 by financial technology veterans, and has experienced explosive growth to date. We’re backed by top investors including Menlo Ventures, Bessemer Venture Partners, Kinnevik, among others.

Bread has enormous and engaging technical challenges. We need to verify online identity, predict fraud, and approve and price credit while providing a beautiful and frictionless consumer experience, all in real time.  Our engineering team is seasoned, talented, agile, and quickly growing. We are looking to hire an Engineering Manager to join the current engineering team in continuing to build out our core platform, product, and teams.

You will be part of our Growth & Support team focused on easing the adaptability and consumption of our services for Bread's partners and merchants.  This includes things like designing frameworks & strategies for delivery & upkeep of integrations with new third parties, defining which eCommerce platforms to support and in what manner, and assisting with the launch of new product offerings.  The solutions implemented by the Partnership Growth squad are critical to our merchant and partner experience, as they are often the first experience that they will have with Bread, setting the tone for all future engagements.

Your role at Bread:

  • Manage a product engineering team, including professional development and leading them towards product delivery and success
  • Work with senior engineering leadership to guide and influence the direction of the engineering organization
  • Work actively with product to both understand and help develop the engineering roadmap
  • Be accountable for leading design and implementation of new features and iterations of our core platform
  • Block and tackle, when necessary, for engineers on your team
  • Be data oriented and focused on what it takes to deliver reliable, scalable, and efficient products and technologies

 

What we are looking for:

Must Have:

  • Experience managing and/or leading engineering teams
  • Expertise building scalable, reliable distributed systems
  • Expert knowledge of server-side languages and data stores (such as: Go, Java, Rust, Postgresql, Redis, etc)
  • Experience with public web APIs
  • A passion for product, engineering and technology

Nice to have:

  • Proven experience managing/leading a 4+ person team
  • Experience developing systems intended for cloud deployments (AWS, k8s, docker)
  • Experience with Go/PostgreSQL/Rabbit/Redis
  • Experience with front-end technologies (Javascript, React)
  • Experience managing in an OKR and KPI environment
  • Experience on agile teams
  • Experience with message-based, loosely coupled architectures (we use gRPC, Kafka, and Redis)
  • Experience with eCommerce Platforms (e.g. Salesforce Commerce Cloud, Shopify, Magento, WooCommerce)
  • Knowledge of financial products
  • You enable your team at every chance you get

 

Engineers at Bread also get the opportunity to participate in Working Groups!  Working Groups are quarterly teams of 4 to 6 engineers that set out to tackle a specific engineering initiative outside of their core engineering team.  Working Groups have included projects like Logging Architecture, Internal Authentication, Community & Blogs, Testing Infrastructure, and Monitoring. Groups meet throughout each quarter to plan and then dedicate a full week to implement features requested by engineers. All engineers get a chance to be in one of these groups and, over time, potentially lead a group for that quarter.  It's another opportunity as an engineer at Bread to have impact across the entire organization!
