As we look to build our vision of financial services that truly benefit the consumer, our team must create, optimize, and improve the design and implementation of every part of our system. We’re actively hiring talented full-stack engineers who want to join one of the fastest growing companies in the Fintech space.

Responsibilities:

  • You will lead the development of features for our customers and our internal finance, operational, and risk teams from specification and planning, through execution with other engineers, to testing and release into production

Experience:

  • People who are passionate about what they do and about improving the lives of others

  • AJAX/Javascript/HTML5/CSS/Git
  • Exposure to web application frameworks, preferably Django
  • RESTful API design and integration
  • The ability to pick up new technologies quickly, with software engineering fundamentals being valued more than familiarity with specific tools or languages

  • People that believe in Agile methodologies, but know how and when to adapt them to fit a team and projects

About Us

Take a look around the Perpay office, and you’ll notice it’s a space for people who get stuff done — and people who want to enjoy doing it. Eight floors above 13th and Sansom sits an office with a gorgeous conference room disguised as a lounge, huge monitors displaying code and an epic coffee setup that includes a Kyoto-style cold brew tower. There’s at least one dog roaming the office on any given day, and music like The Jackson 5’s  “I Want You Back” plays in the background.

Perpay’s team has been hard at work recently, validating their product and building out their initial team. The fintech company’s platform takes the microlending concept that became popular in the nonprofit world and applies it to consumer spending. With Perpay, users don’t necessarily need to have a strong credit score to get financing for big purchases, like a new computer or a nice couch. Instead, Perpay takes a holistic approach toward assessing an individual’s cash flow, then arranges a payment plan that fits a healthy budget through the user’s direct deposit system. Payments are fully automated so there’s no need log on and pay.

Perpay prides themselves on extracurriculars that bring the team together — think “cage match” chef battles at Alla Spina or spirits and strikes in Harp and Crown’s Elbow Lane. It’s a part of their determination to build a team that feels more like a family, where everyone has each other’s backs and celebrates together. Beyond the big events, employees often spend time together outside of work attending concerts, trying new restaurants, or playing on the company soccer team. They take the personal side seriously and value the relationships they build with one another.

In fact, relationships have been the key to building Perpay’s team; nearly every employee has joined via referrals or personal connections. Now, they’re looking to expand their network and bring on talented technologists as they scale.
