Bread is a technology company that aims to transform the way the world shops online. We build tools, technologies and APIs that allow e-commerce merchants to integrate installment loan financing and other alternative payment products anywhere in their customers’ shopping journey. Bread was started in 2014 by financial technology veterans, and has experienced explosive growth to date. We’re backed by top investors including Menlo Ventures, Bessemer Venture Partners, Kinnevik, among others.

We have enormous and engaging technical challenges. Bread is designing an API that can drop easily into any e-commerce platform - both proprietary and off-the-shelf - as well as hosted and on-site. We need to verify online identity and predict fraud while providing a beautiful and frictionless consumer experience. We gather user and financial information to approve and price credit, all in real time. And, we are using technology to explore new approaches to consumer credit marketplaces that have never been attempted before!


Your role at Bread:

  • work with the rest of the engineering team to deliver new functionality to face merchants, consumers, investors, and internal users
  • create beautiful user interfaces and elegant user experiences
  • seamlessly roll out new product features to consumers across the world and on some of the biggest merchants platforms

What we are looking for:

Must have

  • Strong knowledge of Javascript and front-end frameworks (we use React, but would happily speak with people who have deep experience with frameworks like Angular or Backbone)
  • Experience developing rich, reliable, cross-browser-compatible web experiences
  • Experience designing elegant, expressive client-side Javascript APIs
  • Experience creating robust UI automation testing as part of the development process (such as Jest)
  • An ability to translate designs into pixel-perfect HTML and CSS
  • A passion for engineering and technology 

Nice to have

  • Some background in visual design
  • Knowledge of financial products
  • No fear of the back end. Our system is built with Go and PostgreSQL, but we’re also happy to speak with those that have experience with other backend languages, including JVM languages like Java or Scala; Python; or C++
  • Knowledge of e-commerce platforms, like Magento, Shopify, Demandware, or others 

Engineers at Bread also get the opportunity to participate in “20%” time through 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!

An Insider's view of Bread

What are some social events your company does?

We love celebrating all that we can from our monthly happy hours, DI&B events to our summer/winter holiday parties. Our team is extremely thoughtful about how we gather together to ensure everyone is excited about and included in all we do. It fosters collaboration in a more strategic yet relaxed way which helps build relationships.

Head of Employee Engagement

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.

Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

Bread encourages us to empower ourselves from the very start of our careers by offering every employee a stipend to seek educational resources and support. If you envision a role we don’t currently offer, or aspire to transition internally, we aim to give you the tools needed to meet your goal.

Gaby

Recruiting Coordinator

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.
