Senior Software Engineer

Job Description

Location: Boston, MA
At Cayan, we’re making payments easy and secure. We have teams building mobile payments solutions, eCommerce solutions, and embedded payment solutions. As an Engineer at Cayan, you’ll be helping us build new and awesome experiences for our merchants and their customers. We’re looking for full-stack engineers – your work will touch everything from our databases, business logic, web services, front-end UI/UX, edge services, performance engineering, test automation framework, and Continuous Delivery platform. The teams working on each feature are small and nimble (3-4 engineers and a product manager), and we place a premium on collaboration and locally-made decisions. We believe in automating all the repetitive, high-risk, and mundane tasks. Testing should be easy to do right. Deployments should be safe, routine and turnkey. Cayan’s Continuous Delivery architecture will allow you to safely deliver code to production with the push of a button. No prior experience with payments is necessary. 

About The Team

The technical staff at Cayan believes that code is our currency. Our team is working on the next generation of mobile payments – QR, NFC, Bluetooth, and EMV-based digital wallets. Our code literally makes our merchants money and helps provide a less expensive and more seamless checkout experience for their customers. We believe that small, empowered, self-motivated teams can do big things. Our culture values openness, transparency, empowerment, and innovation above all else. As engineers, you’ll find that we’re a pragmatic bunch who believe in choosing the right tool for the job, and aren’t dogmatic about any particular technology stack. You’ll find a mix of C#, Java, Groovy, Ruby, Node.js, PHP, Perl, and more. As human beings, we believe in contributing back to the community - both through our Cayan Cares initiative and through our Open Source contributions. And we’re growing. Our technology team has grown nearly 400% over the past two years, with plans for continued growth in 2015. We expect our payment gateway will process an additional $5 billion in sales and 500MM transactions within the next year. We’re re-investing those returns where we’ll see the highest yield – in you.
