Engineering Platform at Xendit
South Jakarta, ID

Build world class productive engineering team

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, who invested in Facebook, Slack, Twitch and Grab, and are alumni of the prestigious YCombinator (S15).

We are building this team for keeping our developers productive so that they could focus on delivering business value with high velocity. For example, by embracing the culture of Infrastructure as a Code, developers do not need to think of infrastructure again because it is already abstracted into our platform and developers could just ship things easily

We are looking for experienced engineering platform to bring a raft of happiness and productivity for entire engineering team. You would be responsible for entire process from gathering requirements to building scalable and easy to use platform.

  1. You will bring happiness to our developers everytime!
  2. You will participate in reviewing and building our CI/CD system to provide developers a way to ship their things with high velocity and reliability
  3. You will cooperate with our customers (other Xendit developers) to understand their needs and pains so that you could build the right things for helping them
  4. You will enhance our development environment, which enable developers the testing their products in replica of xendit system
  5. You will create tools to provide developers fast and stable builds & tests
  6. You will write and manage infrastructure for developers to run testing (E2E test, user acceptance test, contract testing)
  7. You will become an developer productivity evangelist for your work so that you could share the culture and knowledge across teams in organization
  8. Security is our heart, you will devise tools for maintain security culture for entire organization
  9. Do whatever it takes to make Xendit succeed
