At Affirm we believe the financial industry is fundamentally broken. Not only is the core infrastructure built with technology from the 1970s, but there are a dwindling number of people who say "I trust my bank to look out for me". It doesn’t have to be this way, and it’s our mission to fix this problem. We are using technology to re-imagine and re-build core parts of financial infrastructure to enable cheaper, friendlier and more transparent financial products and services that improve lives. We are based in San Francisco; founded by Max Levchin (founding CTO PayPal), Jeff Kaditz (CDO DeNA/ngmoco), and Nathan Gettings (founding CTO of Palantir); and looking for exceptionally talented and passionate people to join us on our mission.
This role combines software development, networking, and systems administration expertise to help design, build, and run our proprietary distributed, fault-tolerant, financial platform and infrastructure, which is central to our long term company mission. The primary goals of SRE are reliability, scalability, monitoring, and performance of the entire system. We are looking for technology professionals who love being in the center of the action, and are able to routinely address complex software and systems issues ranging from distributed change propagation on live serving systems, to designing and deploying complex multi-stage data pipelines. We hire people from both systems and software backgrounds. Strong candidates will have experience with both.
