1 month ago



Spreedly is the world’s first, and leading, Payments Orchestration solution. Our vision is that the world is better with a diversified, inclusive payment ecosystem. Our mission is to accelerate commerce with an open, secure, and flexible payment platform that welcomes all payment participants. Backed by Spectrum Equity, with a $75M investment, Spreedly is experiencing rapid growth.

Connecting to multiple payment services, known as payment orchestration, is the new standard. With Spreedly’s PCI-compliant cloud solution, merchants can connect to multiple payment services simultaneously, optimize their payment stack, control card data, and accept alternative payment types.

Our employees help us execute against our vision through building a culture focused on autonomy, transparency, and collaboration in a dynamic, high-growth organization.

Infrastructure Engineering at Spreedly is a team of teams whose focus is designing, deploying, and operating the foundational systems and platform primitives on which Spreedly’s services run. Building a high performance payments platform requires engineers with expertise in distributed systems architecture, infrastructure as a service, data durability, and information security best practices. We are working with and storing credit card data, so thinking about security is a way of life at Spreedly, as is building sustainable processes to keep things safe (and our auditors happy)!

We're looking for an engineer who is not afraid to jump into—and make sense of—complex infrastructure and systems problems. As a member of Infrastructure Engineering, you might be responsible for troubleshooting a production issue, provisioning a new service into our production environment, or helping to expand the use of our content delivery network. You will also be focused on delivering services in a way that lets other Engineering teams use and operate them independently. Our team is made up of junior, mid, and senior engineers with a range of backgrounds. So you'll be surrounded by teammates who want to help you grow, as well as opportunities to hone your leadership skills.

You have

  • A willingness to be a generalist and dig into new things you've never done before
  • Interest in operating and building systems on AWS using modern DevOps practices
  • Comfort in treating infrastructure as code (we use Terraform, Ansible, Packer, etc)
  • Familiarity with containers and container orchestration (we use Nomad, Docker etc)
  • Excellent written communications, and a track record of documenting your work
  • A pragmatic, take-action approach but you’re open to fail fast and pivot
  • The ability to sort immediate priorities from the ever shifting needs of a rapidly growing organization
  • A quiet confidence in your ability to learn new tech as necessary

What we offer

  • Competitive salary + Equity
  • Outstanding Medical and Dental Insurance: Premiums are 100% company paid for employees and families
  • Note: We offer two PPO health insurance plans: A traditional copay and a high deductible with HSA. Spreedly contributes $1,200/$2,400 per year to the HSA for those choosing the high deductible plan
  • Life and long-term disability insurance
  • Optional Vision insurance and various Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)
  • Open Paid Time Off policy + 12 weeks paid leave for new parents
  • Matching 401k plan (5% up to $5,000 yearly)
  • Monthly digital lifestyle stipend ($150), new Macbook, and $200 accessory reimbursement
  • $3,000 annual Professional Development stipend and free LinkedIn Learning subscription
  • Flexible, remote friendly work environment
  • Quarterly visits to HQ for remote employees

We are open to remote candidates, with the caveat that you must be located in the continental US and be able to travel to our Durham office once a quarter. With ~30% of our engineers already remote, we are experienced supporting remote employees. 

We're constantly striving to have the fairest and most productive hiring process possible. We want to ensure that every candidate is treated equally and our interactions are designed with that goal in mind. If you want to get a sense for what your application process will look like, we'd encourage you to read the following: Stop Hazing Your Potential Hires and Programming Puzzles Are Not the Answer.

If this at all sounds interesting, we'd love to hear from you!

Principals only, no recruiters. Currently, we are not set up to support remote employees from CA and NY or outside the continental US. All applicants must have an existing US work visa.

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.
