3+ months agoNew York, NY

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 Shop division, which is focused on providing the user experience and API’s which power Bread’s ability to offer a checkout experience to any one of our customers or partners. This includes things such as owning our checkout modal and experience, credit decisioning and fraud decisioning engines, UX for different payment options, and growth opportunities. Work the checkout division does touches all of Bread’s users because it’s integrated at every level of the funnel. The buttons and experience assets developed here are quite literally involved in every pageview a merchant has. Teams work with React and Javascript on the Front End, and a Go services oriented architecture on the backend.

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, RabbitMQ and Redis)
  • Knowledge of financial products
  • You enable your team at every chance you get

Engineers at Bread also get the opportunity to participate in “20%” time through Working Groups!  Working Groups are quarterly teams of 4 to 6 engineers who set out to tackle a specific engineering initiative outside of their core engineering team.  Working Groups have included ones for Logging Architecture, Internal Authentication, Community & Blogs, Testing Infrastructure, and Monitoring. Groups meet every Friday to plan and own their roadmap and implement their features. 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!
