How you’ll make a huge impact here – and on your career:
This role is all about getting hands-on in designing & coding scalable and highly performant software with a smart, collaborative team. Reporting to our VP of Architecture, you will develop our unified/enterprise product architecture and key performance & scalability roadmap enhancements. You’ll also play a part in pairing, coaching, and mentoring fellow VEEPs (Versapay’s Empowered and Enabled People).
We’re interested to hear from individuals who are excited by: our stack, 12 Factor Apps, retrieval augmented generation vs fine-tuning, ORM vs an RDBMS optimizer, data modeling 3NF, SQL vs NoSQL, OLTP vs OLAP, caching (invalidation), partitioning, large data sets, primary writes & distributed reads, event streaming, asynchronous queueing & messaging, horizontal scalability, high performance batch vs near real-time API, ETL integration, SSO & federated identity, CI/CD, TDD, to AI or to ML…and the list goes on and on but that’s ok because you never stop wanting to learn.

What you’ll do:

  • Drive us forward: Design, develop, and test, product features satisfying business & technical requirements on time and on budget.
  • Develop the big picture: Define & maintain architecture principles, patterns, and standards with particular attention to scalable, and high performing design.
  • Get in the weeds: Triage and correct performance and/or data integrity concerns by reviewing & evaluating code, data patches, system logs, and process/memory/disk consumption utilization.
  • Collaborate across teams: Partner with product analysts, customer care, DevOps, and other engineers on features and support cases, supporting technical decision making, and leading work that affects more and more complex systems and critical areas of our application.
  • Lead research: Provide critical R&D to help us continue to design for scale and reliability as we grow (and we’re growing).
  • Coach and mentor: provide guidance to junior-intermediate engineers on the team and others when possible.

What you’ll bring to the team:

  • Practical experience: Background in computer science engineering and at least 10 years in software engineering under your belt, having shipped large scale software in an agile test-driven culture. Strong experience in Ruby/Rails is a big plus.
  • Deep expertise: Strong knowledge & practice in a variety of technology, algorithms & data-structures (including AI/ML), performance tuning & benchmarking, languages (e.g. Ruby, Java, Python, C#), databases (e.g. Postgres, Oracle, MySQL, SQL Server), operating systems (e.g. Mac, Unix, Windows), containerization and cloud environments (AWS, Azure) experience is an asset.
  • Communication: Able to effectively deliver written and verbal communications that are clear, compelling, to socialize ideas and get buy-in. Proven mentorship and assistance in up skilling teammates.
  • Follow-through/execution: Excellent organizational skills, work ethic, and passion to deliver on commitments.
  • Proactiveness and curiosity: Able to work effectively in a team with minimal supervision, using your knowledge to source and resolve problems.
  • Related industry knowledge: Preferably, experience in the Payments Industry and PCI DSS, would be a strong asset.
All of our Veeps live out our core values:
We look for excellence: individuals that are better than we are and not only meet our values but bring value to our teams.
Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women and other marginalized folks tend to only apply when they check every box. Think you have what it takes, but not sure you check every box? Apply to the role anyways. We’d love to talk and determine together whether you could be a great fit!
We are committed to providing an environment that is inclusive and accessible. Versapay is an equal opportunity employer and considers all applicants for employment without discrimination. Please let us know if accommodation for the recruitment/interview process is required and we will work with you to make sure your needs are addressed.
