Senior Software Engineer - Platform

Xendit is an Indonesian fintech company that provides payment infrastructure across Indonesia. Xendit processes payments, runs marketplaces, disburses payroll and loans, detects fraud and helps other businesses grow exponentially. We serve these companies by providing a suite of world-class APIs and a dashboard UI that simplifies processes. 

We build the most advanced payments infrastructure in Southeast Asia, making payments simple, secure, and accessible. We serve everyone from local SMEs to Indonesia’s largest tech startups. We process millions of transactions, growing 25% monthly over the last 2 years. We are part of YCombinator (S15), and are also backed by the largest global VCs (like Accel), who invested in Facebook, Slack, and Grab. But enough about us, tell us about yourself.

Mission
We build digital payments infrastructure for Indonesia focusing on platform businesses. While accepting payments digitally has become easier, it is extremely challenging for platforms to manage payments across multiple parties (e.g. suppliers, vendors). Our team streamlines accepting and sending money for platform businesses. Our solutions enable platforms and marketplaces to onboard new partners, route and split payments, and easily monitor their payments infrastructure.

Outcomes
  1. Design, build, and maintain our payments products with a focus on customer needs
  2. Architect product infrastructure to ensure reliability, scalability and security 
  3. Collaborate with engineering teams across the company to build new features at scale
  4. Define the technical roadmap of the product together with engineering leadership
  5. Do whatever it takes to make Xendit succeed
