  • Strong front-end skills in JavaScript (ES6/ES7+), with an understanding of the details under the hood.
  • Experience writing clean, accessible, and performantHTML and CSS
  • Experience with RESTful APIs
  • Experience developing systems intended for cloud deployments (we use AWS)
  • A passion for engineering and technology

Nice to have:

  • Experience using TypeScript

  • Experience with message-based, loosely coupled architectures (we use gRPC and Kafka)
  • Knowledge of financial products

Engineers at Bread also get the opportunity to participate in Working Groups!  Working Groups are quarterly teams of 4 to 6 engineers who set out to tackle a specific engineering initiative outside of their core engineering team.  Working Groups have included ones for Logging Architecture, Internal Authentication, Community & Blogs, Testing Infrastructure, and Monitoring. Groups meet every Friday to plan and own their roadmap and implement their features. All engineers get a chance to be in one of these groups and over time potentially lead a group for that quarter. It's another opportunity as an engineer at Bread to have impact across the entire organization!

What projects are you most excited about?

A typical day at Bread is different depending on the engineer. While some engineers enjoy more autonomy, I enjoy collaborating on projects with other engineers and coming up with great solutions together. We strike a balance between stability and innovation through code reviews and guest lectures. I feel supported in my career growth here at Bread.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

One of the great things about working at Bread is the cross-functional collaboration with other teams. As an integrations engineer, I have not only learned how to intentionally build a product in a thoughtful manner from the Engineering and Product teams, but also how to be effective in a client facing role from our Sales and Success teams.
