Platform Developer

New York, NY, United States Full Time

About CardFlight

CardFlight is a software-as-a-service company offering mobile payments technology and point of sale solutions to enterprises. We offer a Software Development Kit for developers to integrate payments acceptance in their existing app and SwipeSimple, a turnkey mobile solution for independent sales organizations and merchant service providers to offer to their merchants. Our technology platform is EMV chip card enabled with encrypted card readers, and a PCI Level 1 compliant payment gateway supporting all major U.S. processors.

The Role

CardFlight is looking for an experienced software developer on our Platform team, providing technical leadership and expertise while building a scalable, maintainable, and rational payments API and associated web-based applications. The API supports the SDKs that enable custom mobile payment applications, as well as our out-of-the-box mobile payments app, SwipeSimple. Your responsibilities will include crafting our next-generation APIs and web apps while continuing to evolve a platform that already moves millions of dollars per day. You will also mentor and share your broad perspective on building scalable systems with other engineers.

Experience working with a payments platform is great but in no way required. If you have technical leadership experience and an opinionated but pragmatic approach to building application interfaces, you may be the right person. While the current tech stack is Ruby-based, you should be able to learn new technologies quickly and be motivated by using the right tool for the job. This is an opportunity to be a senior voice in our broader Engineering team.
