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 sector.

We’re looking for someone with a few years of professional software engineering under their belt, specifically with experience building beautiful, effective user experiences that drive adoption and engagement.

In a typical day, you’ll work with our engineering team to design, test, and implement the next evolution of our users’ experience. You will also be tasked with building dashboards and data visualizations to monitor mission-critical systems. So, if you’re the kind of person who wants to learn, react and adapt quickly to a dynamic work environment, we should talk.

Working as an engineer at Perpay

  • We take care of you financially, of course, including paying your medical, dental, and cell phone plan.
  • In the office, we work hard – but there’s no reason that it can’t be comfortable. We work out of a beautiful space in downtown Center City, close to everything.
  • Your personal life is important to us too. We want people who are dedicated and work hard, but we aren’t going to burn you out in the process.
  • Is this an ideal next gig? Is Perpay the place for you? Great! Tell us a bit about yourself and why you think you’re a good fit. Be sure to include a link to your Github profile if you have one.
  • We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

Requirements:

  • You are passionate about what you do and improving the lives of others
  • Exposure to web application frameworks, preferably Django and the ability to understand and utilize back-end APIs and models
  • HTML5 / CSS3 / Bootstrap / JQuery / Javascript / Git
  • You can collaborate with our teams, analyze UX feedback, and translate these ideas into beautifully designed products
  • Expertise in web design, automated testing, and browser compatibility

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.
