What do you think about working on systems that process thousands of customer payments a day with industry-leading authorization rates? Or what about protecting customers by providing solutions that detect and prevent malicious activity? Zoosk is looking for a software engineer to join our growing Payment Systems team, which is responsible for driving all payment processing and financial reconciliation at Zoosk. This is a critical role in the, engineering organization and represents a great opportunity for an engineer to hone their skills on a high-volume, mission critical system.
- Design, code and maintain software libraries that process Zoosk financial transactions for millions of users. Produce code that provides access to data, job scheduling, business logic and reporting.
- Own significant portions of the codebase and monitor its performance in the production environment.
- Collaborate with other engineers and the product team to define clear software deliverables and establish milestones for projects.
- Integrate your code with third-party APIs.
- Identify opportunities to improve Zoosk software infrastructure and security. Research technologies and generate proof of concepts for review.
Who we look for:
- Have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or something related.
- Have worked for 2+ years of professional industry experience building web-based, data-driven software systems
- Proficient in at least one industry-adopted language. Prefer candidates with experience in PHP or Java in a traditional LAMP stack, but not required.
- Practical experience with relational databases and large data sets, particularly with MySQL databases
- Bonus if you have experience with AWS Cloud Services (EC2, RDS / Aurora, CloudFormation, CloudWatch, SQS, ...) and APM tools such as New Relic.
- Know a bit about payment processing, accounting practices, and PCI compliance but this is not a requirement. We prefer a software engineer with strong CS fundamentals eager to apply these in a high-volume environment where performance and accuracy are critical.
