Apply to Zip

We are Zip, a rapidly expanding global fintech headquartered out of Sydney, Australia with a growing presence focused in the US and UK markets.

We're here to simplify how the world pays for what they need by connecting merchants with consumers and offering them fair and seamless payment solutions, everywhere. We’re also the brains behind Pocketbook, which helps almost a million Aussies take control of their money and improve their financial well-being.

Our values are at the heart of everything we do. They form our Mamba mentality - how we’re better than yesterday, and are used to create game-changing experiences for our customers and our people.

The role

We are hiring an Engineering Manager to lead and grow the Consumer Plus engineering squad, and work closely with our product and design functions to improve and expand our consumer product offering.

The squad works together to solve ambiguous and complex engineering challenges using a wide variety of technologies. We need someone with a flexible mindset who is happy with rapid context-switching and enjoys diverse engineering challenges.

In this role, you will:

  • Develop, grow and support the engineering squad
  • Collaborate with the product manager and designer in a triad to discover and validate problems
  • Promote a high-performance culture
  • Drive delivery and outcomes 
  • Coach engineering best-practices

About you:

  • Passion for people management and growth
  • Ability to  coach and bring the best out of others
  • Technical excellence across design principles and code quality 
  • Focus on operational maturity and  effective delivery 
  • Comfortable challenging directly whilst caring personally 
  • Ability to balance outcomes for customers, the team and the business
  • Flexibility, an open mind, curiosity and passion for learning
  • Ability to jump between empathising with a customer problem and designing an engaging solution
  • Curiosity in understanding payment problems in various industries where people spend every day
  • Our values in your DNA: Customer First, Own It, Stronger Together and Change the Game

Ideal technical skills:

  • Expert level experience on Javascript, Typescript and NodeJS
  • Solid experience on C# and .NET Core
  • Solid experience on AWS, microservice-based designs, SQL and noSQL databases
  • Solid experience on the Agile development, Design Patterns, TDD and Gitflow 
  • Experience with Terraform (or any IoC frameworks), Newrelic (or any monitoring toolkits) is a plus

We’re looking for someone who always finds new boundaries to cross - a future Zipster who will obsess over excellence and make constant improvements for our customers. We’ve removed the red tape here to get things done quickly, so if you see a problem, own the solution. You've gotta hustle at Zip!

If you only meet some of the requirements for this role, that's okay. We value a diverse range of backgrounds and ideas and believe this is fundamental for our future success. So, if you have the curiosity to learn and the willingness to teach what you know, we'd love to hear from you.

We pride ourselves on creating an inclusive workplace that provides equal opportunities to all persons regardless of their age, cultural background, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, veteran status, or anything else.
