Bread is a technology company that aims to transform the way the world shops online. We build tools, technologies & APIs that allow e-commerce merchants to integrate installment loan financing & other alternative payment products anywhere in their customers shopping journey. Bread was started in 2014 by financial technology veterans, & has experienced explosive growth to date.

This individual will join Breads Core Engineering group.  We are a relatively new group, & our main goal is to service all the verticals in our product engineering organization by providing a cross-platform, easy-to-use, abstract software solution(s) that emphasize on scalability & extensibility.  Core Engineering is uniquely set up to work with all teams within Bread, & our end-clients are essentially our colleagues & peer engineers.  Our group will work primarily on the backend using Go.  Some product examples that we are developing include Workflows, Authentication, & BRE (Business Rules Engine).  We are an easy going & dedicated group & our responsibilities are evolving.  We are looking for talented & excited engineers to join us!

Your Role at Bread:

  • Mentor & be a resource for every member of the team
  • Write code
  • Review & curate all aspects of our technical architecture & approach, from the code base to the database, to infrastructure, to our development process
  • Be involved in all significant technical decisions
  • Educate teams on the technical roadmap & help meet the strategic objectives.
  • Assist in creating & reviewing Technical Design Documents (TDDs) for the development organization based on product requirements.
  • Help design complex systems at the component level, make strategic technology choices, & directly supervise the quality of designs & implementation inside & between components.
  • Influence development managers to insure appropriate levels of quality on owned system(s).


  • Expertise in React & Redux
  • Strong track record of building scalable, reliable distributed systems
  • Experience with cloud deployments (we use AWS)
  • Experience with public web APIs
  • A passion for the craft of engineering

Engineers at Bread also get the opportunity to participate in Working Groups! Working Groups are quarterly teams of 4 to 6 engineers that set out to tackle a specific engineering initiative outside of their core engineering team. Working Groups have included projects like Logging Architecture, Internal Authentication, Community & Blogs, Testing Infrastructure, & Monitoring. Groups meet throughout each quarter to plan & then dedicate a full week to implement features requested by engineers. All engineers get a chance to be in one of these groups and, over time, potentially lead a group for that quarter. It's another opportunity as an engineer at Bread to have impact across the entire organizatsion!

If this is you, submit a cover letter & resume to apply!
