PayJoy's mission is to deliver access to credit to the next billion people in emerging markets worldwide. Our unique mobile security technology creates collateral that enables customers to afford their first smartphone on credit and then allows them further access to credit to help weather life's unexpected financial surprises and climb the ladder of economic well-being.
Founded in 2015, today PayJoy has reached hundreds of thousands of customers in a dozen countries around the globe, from Mexico to Indonesia, India, Kenya, and Nigeria, and is on a strong growth path with support from major industry partners to bring credit to millions in 2019.
We are looking for a strong Engineering Manager to grow and lead our PayJoy Lock Engineering teams to success. Operating with scale and speed, our world-class software engineers are just getting started. As a manager, you guide the way for them and partner with Product teams to implement the Product roadmap.
As both a technical expert in mobile technologies and an experienced manager, you will recruit, lead, and grow engineers to develop PayJoy’s technologies that are making smartphones and credit available to underserved people around the world. You will lead your team to shape and deliver on products that serve all markets. You not only optimize your own code but make sure engineers are able to optimize theirs.
You manage your project goals, work with Product to contribute to product strategy, drive architecture decisions, and design simple, scalable solutions to solve technical problems for our partners and end-users. Along the way, you will identify process improvement opportunities and bring in new tools and technology to make our teams more effective.
