Paxos was founded in 2012 as the first institutional and regulated crypto-exchange, our founding team quickly realized there was an opportunity to establish ourselves as the trusted leader in digital assets. By creating regulated digital assets like our USD-backed stablecoin PAX, we’re giving customers the chance to process their financial transactions in safer, faster and more cost-effective ways. We’re also building solutions for some of the world’s best-known financial institutions to settle day-to-day transactions faster, cheaper and with the most modern technology. We believe the global financial system has relied too long on closed infrastructure and outdated technologies - it's time for a change.

We are looking for an Engineering Manager to join our rapidly growing FinTech company. This role will be reporting directly to the SVP of Engineering and will have a huge impact on the technical direction of the entire company. This includes providing architectural guidance, mentoring other engineers, evaluating new technologies and industry changes, and defining and leading company best practices. This will also include interfacing with other leading technology companies and universities in the future of the blockchain industry.

What you will do: You will produce a work output by taking a complex user story, breaking it down into sub-tasks, and delegating and completing the sub-tasks with relative ease – own design, coding, testing all the way through deployment of each of those sub-tasks. You will build and lead a strong team of junior and senior software engineers and participate in code reviews resulting in up leveling the skill sets for the team as a whole. You will identify and proactively tackle technical debt before it grows into something that requires significant up-front work to resolve. A rule of thumb is to start looking into root cause of issues whenever there is noise. There is no smoke without fire. You will strike the right balance between fixing the problem at hand and focusing on finding the root cause of the problem. For example, if it’s a production issue the priority is to fix the immediate problem and collect all the data necessary for root cause analysis. In a non-production environment, the focus should be on finding the root cause and fixing it the right way to make sure the problem doesn’t occur again. You'll work cross-functionally across Product, Engineering and Operations business units What you need to have: Significant technical experience building business-critical software applications Years of people management experience, including hiring and developing engineering talent The ability to work in a fast-paced, agile, and (sometimes) ambiguous environment with multiple priorities and stakeholders Hands on software development experience (“player coach”) and are comfortable writing code Have worked in different technical stacks in the past with full-stack exposure (front end, back end, database), with a continuous development/continuous deployment pipeline, possibly in a 24/7 support environment Other than these qualifications, we're hoping to bring someone on board who loves what they do and can't wait to join an amazing team!

Who we are: We are a diverse group of individuals with backgrounds and experience in banking, startups, tech giants, and big-five consulting firms. We currently have about 110 employees across offices in New York, London and Singapore and have big plans for our growth. We’re looking for collaborative, creative, hard-working and intellectually curious people to help us make our vision a reality.

Why we matter: Paxos is the only technology company building financial services solutions that both customers and regulators can trust. We’re committed to pushing the boundaries of technology while also working with important stakeholder groups so we can build a financial system that is open and accessible to anyone around the world.

Who are our customers: Our customers run the gamut from individuals seeking access to digital assets and those who don’t want to be tied to a physical banking system, to large institutions seeking to improve their settlement infrastructure. Some of our clients today include big names like Credit Suisse, Societe Generale, Macquarie, INTL FCStone and Virtu.

How we work: Paxos is driven by our four values. We believe that every Paxos employee is an owner, and employees consistently search for the truth in their work.
