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. Were backed by top investors including Menlo Ventures, Bessemer Venture Partners, Kinnevik, among others.

Bread has enormous & engaging technical challenges. We need to verify online identity, predict fraud, & approve & price credit while providing a beautiful & frictionless consumer experience, all in real time.  Our engineering team is seasoned, talented, agile, & quickly growing. We are looking to hire an Engineering Manager to join the current engineering team in continuing to build out our core platform, product, & teams.

This role will sit on our Members team, which is responsible for building out our new financial servicing platform. As Bread grows to become the best API for all types of POS payment opportunities, this team will build the engine that allows us to run & service those instruments over time. There are many real time high volume processes such as payment processing & lifecycle management the team needs to build for, as well as heavy data pipelines for various accounting & reporting jobs which need to scale as we continue to grow. The members team also builds out the internal tools & portals which allows other business units at Bread to operate each & every day. With respect to our consumers & financial partners, this team is building the post-checkout engine of Bread.

The Members team is cross functional & owns multiple backends written in Go, as well as multiple React frontends, all of which are integral to the success of the business.

Your role at Bread:

  • Manage a product engineering team, including professional development & leading them towards product delivery & success
  • Work with senior engineering leadership to guide & influence the direction of the engineering organization
  • Work actively with product to both understand & help develop the engineering roadmap
  • Be accountable for leading design & implementation of new features & iterations of our core platform
  • Block & tackle, when necessary, for engineers on your team
  • Be data oriented & focused on what it takes to deliver reliable, scalable, & efficient products & technologies

What we are looking for:

Must Have:

  • Experience managing and/or leading engineering teams
  • A penchant for Back End engineering
  • Expertise building scalable, reliable distributed systems
  • Expert knowledge of server-side languages & data stores (such as: Go, Java, Rust, Postgresql, Redis, etc)
  • Experience with public web APIs

  • Experience with front-end technologies (Javascript, React)
  • Experience managing in an OKR & KPI environment
  • Experience on agile teams
  • Experience with message-based, loosely coupled architectures (we use gRPC, RabbitMQ & Redis)
  • Knowledge of financial products
  • You enable your team at every chance you get

Engineers at Bread also get the opportunity to participate in 20% time through Working Groups!  Working Groups are quarterly teams of 4 to 6 engineers who set out to tackle a specific engineering initiative outside of their core engineering team.  Working Groups have included ones for Logging Architecture, Internal Authentication, Community & Blogs, Testing Infrastructure, & Monitoring. Groups meet every Friday to plan & own their roadmap & implement their features. All engineers get a chance to be in one of these groups & over time potentially lead a group for that quarter. It's another opportunity as an engineer at Bread to have impact across the entire organization!

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