Developer Support Engineer (Partner Engineering)

Remote

Affirm is reinventing credit to make it more honest and friendly, giving consumers the flexibility to buy now and pay later without any hidden fees or compounding interest.

Do you love technical problem-solving? Do you enjoy teaching others? Do you want broad exposure to a wide variety of web development technologies?

As a Developer Support Engineer at Affirm, you’ll be supporting the thousands of developers who are integrating Affirm into their e-commerce and in-store point of sale systems. You will combine your skills as a full-stack developer and an empathetic communicator to debug complex technical issues. Your communication to developers and business owners alike is technically sophisticated, authentic, and genuinely helpful. You delight normally cynical engineers, who are used to the ‘black-hole’ support experiences they get from the traditional players. Developer Support Engineers are a part of the engineering organization at Affirm and work closely with Product, Operations, Account Management, and Merchant Help teams. As a founding member of the Poland Developer Support Engineering team at Affirm, you will have a huge impact from day one.

What You'll Do

  • Quickly become a specialist in Affirm's APIs, products, and integration documentation
  • Fix merchant issues that are highly technical and raise these issues to other engineering teams when needed
  • Prioritize issues and projects related to improving the developer experience for our merchants
  • Creatively seek solutions to emergent problem spaces as we build out new platforms, technologies, and merchant requirements
  • Develop tools to help scale our merchant facing teams and improve efficiency
  • Analyze technical support patterns that can help drive product improvements
  • Lead projects relating to our internal tooling efforts and business critical processes
  • Participate in Incident Communications on-call rotations including during off hours

What We Look For

  • Passion to change consumer banking for the better
  • Two years of professional experience as a web developer or a related technical role
  • Proficiency with SQL and at least one programming language such as JavaScript, Python, or PHP
  • Experience integrating UX elements w/ backend services, frameworks, and 3rd party developer APIs
  • Excellent technical troubleshooting skills - Familiarity with Chrome Developer Tools is a plus
  • A strong voice when writing - you let your personality show without sacrificing clarity (Please submit a cover letter when applying - we actually read them)
  • Task jugglers who can keep dozens of balls in the air and thrive - help build internal tools one day and have a phone call with a client the next!
  • Bachelor's degree with a strong academic record or equivalent practical experience
