Senior Backend Engineer at Xendit
South Jakarta, ID

Xendit is an Indonesian fintech company that provides payment infrastructure across Indonesia. Xendit processes payments, runs marketplaces, disburses payroll and loans, detects fraud and helps other businesses grow exponentially. We serve these companies by providing a suite of world-class APIs and a dashboard UI that simplifies processes. 

Our main focus is to build the most advanced payment rails for Indonesia, with a clear goal in mind — to make payments in Indonesia simple, secure and easy for everyone. We currently serve local SMEs to some of Indonesia’s largest tech startups and also giant-sized businesses like Samsung. We process millions of transactions monthly, growing 25% month on month for the last 2 years. We are trusted and backed by some of the largest VCs in the world, and are alumni of the prestigious YCombinator (S15). 

Backend engineers work on the business logic for all of that. As a backend engineer, you will design, create and expand our services to meet our partners' requirements. You'll work with other engineers to build delightful products that people will use everyday. Because we're growing quickly you won't be working on small sub-features but be making important design decision that affect all our customers.

We're looking for people that have a strong interest in continuously improving how they build great products. You have to be comfortable with being compared to Silicon Valley standards with exquisite attention to detail on a modern technology stack. This will push you beyond your comfort zone which means you'll learn a tonne and build some of the best products Southeast Asia has seen.
