Job Description Summary:

About Us

Venmo was founded on the principles of breaking down the intimidating barriers around financial transactions to make them intuitive, friendly, and even fun. And it worked: people love sending money with Venmo, and we're growing by leaps and bounds!

But we're only just getting started. We want to take that magic of sending money with Venmo and cascade it into every place where people use money. That means connecting people to their money in the most intuitive and fun way possible, then connecting people with each other and the commerce space around them. Users already love Venmo, but we know there are lots of things we haven't thought of to make the experience of using Venmo even more delightful and valuable. All that's going to take a lot of figuring out. Let's figure it out together!

Engineering at Venmo

Engineering is a craft, and at Venmo we want the internals of our software to be as elegant as the end user experience we are designing.

The Engineering Team at Venmo is a tightly-knit group of contributors, domain experts, managers, scientists, and researchers. We spend our days scaling our infrastructure and building new features to meet and exceed our users needs and wants. We work with a product team that is data-driven and human-centered in its design principles. We teach and learn from one another, and push each other to be at our creative and analytical bests. We're never completely done.

The Role - Frontend Software Architect

The Web team is responsible for our Venmo.com experiences and webviews used in our mobile applications. Our products are used by millions of users every day and must operate at a scale that meets our hockey-stick user growth and rapid portfolio expansion. We are seeking customer-obsessed frontend engineers who will work closely with our product and design partners to build, user-test, and iterate new features in our web platforms. We are a new small team that values ego-free code reviews, code quality, staying intellectually curious and always searching for better ways to get things done.

As a Frontend Software Architect, you will assist us in creating delightful user experiences for Venmo customers. You will be responsible for Venmo's web architecture and working very closely with the engineering managers, architects, and service owners to continue the journey of building the best payments web experiences in the world. You will be responsible for driving engineering design decisions and building innovative, human-centered, high-throughput web applications. You should be equally comfortable starting from scratch as well as diving into an existing project to make it better. You will also be expected to be a role model on coding standards, tools, platforms and other best practices for the web team.

Things you'll do:

Lead the design and development of frontend features and components for Venmo.com and webviews used in mobile experiences

Develop and maintain a web technology strategy that is aligned with business objectives

Iterate with our UX and Product teams in an agile environment to bring features from conception to launch

Collaborate with Platform, Infrastructure and InfoSec teams to ensure web apps operate at scale and meet security requirements

Write clean, high-quality code and tests while keeping the user experience fast and reliable

Reduce the level of technical debt of the web codebase

Build the optimal design and model for the UI, including responsive design and accessibility concerns

Help triage bugs, track software defects, and ensure their timely resolution

Lead and participate in development life cycle activities like design, coding, testing and production release

Define and steward technical standards and code quality

Conduct peer code reviews for pull requests

Provide mentorship to fellow Web engineers
