BigCommerce, named one of Australia’s Coolest companies by Anthill Magazine, is looking for a Software Engineer for the Payments team in our Sydney office.
The BigCommerce Engineering team is on a mission to build the leading SaaS ecommerce platform.
Our global team of engineers works from our Austin, San Francisco and Sydney offices and are focused on building the right product for our customers in the right way.
In the Payments team we aim to provide a robust, open, and industry-leading payments platform for our merchants, partners and developers. We look after the whole payments domain, from allowing merchants to configure their payment providers and manage their transactions, to providing a simple way for shoppers to pay using the latest payment methods, to building a platform enabling our merchants to expand internationally.
That’s quite a handful, so we don’t do it alone. We work closely with other engineering teams, product owners, designers, business representatives and external partners to build a payments platform where we can easily and securely incorporate new payment providers and payment methods. We have a team of people at different levels and with different expertise and we work to iterate, learn, and build great software together.
Our current projects are around crafting an elegant and extensible platform that developers can build on top of. We work across two main services in PHP and Ruby on Rails. The front-end built with AngularJS, TypeScript and Jest and we’re working on building out our internal UI Library with web components. We already have a lot of nice things in place in terms of build and deployment tools to get code out there several times a day, experimentation and metrics gathering so we can make smart choices and monitoring so we know when something goes wrong. We don’t expect our new-starters to be intimately familiar with all the tools we use, but if you are then we’re looking forward to learning how we can get the best out of them.
