Software Engineer, Payments (R23302)


Bandcamp is an online record store and music community where passionate fans discover, connect with, and directly support the artists they love. Artists have earned more than a billion dollars on Bandcamp. We believe that music is an indispensable part of the culture, and for that culture to survive, artists must be compensated fairly and transparently for their work.

Our team of 100+ people is sprinkled throughout the world, united in our desire to help artists connect with their fans and earn a living from their craft. Many of us are musicians, all of us are fans, and we see how our work helps artists every day. We use one guiding principle to decide what to build, write about, design, and support: will this help an artist connect with fans and put money in the artist’s pocket?

What You'll Do

Bandcamp is seeking a talented software engineer to help us improve upon and extend the capabilities of our payments software. You’ll have significant opportunities to have a meaningful impact, helping fans pay the artists they love. The Payments team ensures that money moves securely and smoothly through Bandcamp’s systems, which now process millions of transactions a day! We work to create scalable, frictionless, and secure checkout experiences and to maintain our integrations with 3rd party payments platforms, enabling new and better ways for fans to pay artists. We think long and hard about database transactions, concurrency, performance, resiliency, security, and more! This role encompasses many interesting challenges and requires special diligence and an eye for details.

In this role, you will 

  • Work closely with other engineers, designers, product and support experts to build payments-related features
  • Design and build elegant, highly performant code that makes you proud
  • Work as a generalist, taking ownership of tasks from database to interface (or vice versa, as you prefer)
  • Balance your attention to detail with the desire to release improvements and new features
  • Offer opinions on technical decisions and directions, while being open to the opinions of others
  • Have the opportunity to mentor less experienced engineers (and maybe those who are more experienced!) on your areas of expertise

What we’re looking for

  • Recent experience building, extending, and tuning payments code for online marketplaces
  • A love of ruby, or extensive experience with another object-oriented language, eg. Java, Python
  • Experience with MySQL, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • A desire to work collaboratively on cross-disciplinary teams
