Engineering Manager - Payments

Job description

Why Recharge.com

We are the leading one-stop-shop for branded payments, making online recharge possible for anyone, anywhere at any time — whether you or someone you love needs credit for calling, gaming, entertainment or money. This is your chance to join an ambitious scaleup in a state of rapid growth; we’ll push you to develop yourself and help you create a real impact in your role.

Put simply: we could write history together.

We won’t bore you with a corporate spiel about how we might be taking on the world of branded payments (spoiler: we are).


Instead, we’ll let the numbers speak for themselves: $36 million in funding (and counting!), 50%+ growth in 2020, projected $500 million in sales in 2021, 2.5 million active customers, a presence in 180 countries and 22 markets, a team of 140+ employees and 35+ nationalities, and 1 person missing — you.


We’re on the hunt for the hungriest and most passionate talent out there. If at any point your brain screams “I want in!” while you’re reading this, then consider this the sign you’ve been looking for: we want you too.


The Role

We’re looking for a talented Engineering Manager - Payments to join our Tech Department and lead two of our product engineering teams building our Payments, Fraud & Risk and Delivery services, reporting to Director of Engineering David Williams.


In the past three years, we have managed to scale up rapidly with our products Rapido.com and Recharge.com which has led to tremendous (often - triple-digit) growth of sales volumes. This faster than light growth rate will continue in the foreseeable future, and that’s why we are in the progress of re-defining our application landscape to make sure that we can cope with this growth in the future. That’s where you come in.


You will be part of a growing team of people that are responsible for laying the groundwork to scale Recharge.com. While we are already operating in over 130 countries we are anticipating immense growth in the next couple of months and years to come.

We are responsible for the reliability, performance, security and availability of our cloud platform.
