Spreedly

Junior Software Engineer

Job Description

Spreedly is a rapidly growing, growth private-equity funded digital payments company with headquarters located in downtown Durham, North Carolina. We’ve developed a high volume, global solution to support our vision that the world is better with a diversified, inclusive, payment ecosystem. 
Our employees help build a culture that values independence, transparency, and collaboration in a digital-first communication environment. We hope you do your best work at Spreedly and find a mature workplace striving to support the ebb and flow of work-life harmony.
You’ll be spending your time working on the engineering team building functionality for customers. Building product at Spreedly is somewhat unique in that our main product is a payments API used by other developers. So “designing a UI” often means thinking through how you would want a given API to work if you were using it, and when we “work on Javascript”, it’s usually building libraries for other developers to use in their own pages. “Adding a feature for a customer” could mean working through how to securely enable a developer to do something interesting with a credit card number…
Oh, did we forget to mention that? We work with credit card data. Constantly. That means thinking about security is a way of life at Spreedly, as is building sustainable processes to keep data safe, and our auditors happy.

Must haves

  • An ability to quickly get up to speed in a Ruby development environment.
  • A willingness to be a generalist and dig into new things you’ve never done before.
  • Excitement about building products for Spreedly’s customers, who are primarily businesses doing commerce and their developers who are using our API’s and toolkits.
  • Excellent written communications, and a willingness to use them to document your work as necessary.
  • The ability to operate semi-autonomously, sorting your own immediate priorities out of the ever-shifting needs of a startup environment.
  • A quiet confidence in your ability to learn new tech as necessary. Today we work primarily with Ruby, Rails, Elixir, Phoenix, Riak, Kafka, Postgres, Redis, and Linux … but are always pragmatically evaluating new languages and tools.

What we offer

  • Competitive salary + Equity
  • Outstanding medical and dental benefits(we pay 100% of monthly premiums for employees + families)
  • Life and long-term disability insurance
  • Medical and dependent care FSA
  • Optional vision insurance

  • 12 weeks paid Family Leave
  • Matching 401k plan (5% up to $5,000 yearly)
  • Monthly digital lifestyle stipend ($150)
  • Professional development opportunities including $3,000 annual stipend and access to LinkedIn Learning
  • Tues./Thurs. are in-office days for local employees – the rest of the week employees are free to work wherever they choose
  • Paid lunches on in-office days for local employees

Spreedly is an equal opportunity employer. We are committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion. We actively work to drive out even unintentional discrimination in our hiring processes via practices like blindly graded work samples, structured interviews, and diversity awareness training.
Due to the sensitive nature of what Spreedly does- handling payment data- candidates must complete a successful background check. If you have concerns along those lines, please discuss with us sooner rather than later- we do not want you to waste time in the hiring process and get disqualified at the end if we can help it.
Some of our positions are open to remote applicants. If this is the case it will be sited in the job posting just below the position name. Unless otherwise stated, remote positions are open to candidates in the contiguous US only. We are not set up to support remote employees from CA, NY, or outside the contiguous US. All applicants must have a US work visa.  
We appreciate your interest in our company. Because of the high volume of resume flow, we may only respond to those candidates that we think will be a potential fit.
