Bread, a division of Alliance Data, is a technology-driven payments company that partners with merchants and partners to personalize payment options for their customers. Bread integrates directly with merchants on their ecommerce site and gives them a single platform that lets them offer more ways to pay over time. Bread's full-funnel recommendation engine serves up the right options at the right time, empowering merchants to sell more, improve conversion, and lift average-order-value. To learn more, please visit breadpayments.com.

Bread has enormous and engaging technical challenges. We need to verify online identity, predict fraud, and approve and price credit while providing a beautiful and frictionless consumer experience, all in real time.  Our engineering team is seasoned, talented, agile, and quickly growing. We are looking to hire an Engineering Manager to join the current engineering team in continuing to build out our core platform, product, and teams.

This role will sit on our Member team, which is responsible for building out our new financial servicing platform. As Bread grows to become the best API for all types of POS payment opportunities, this team will build the engine that allows us to run and service those instruments over time. There are many real time high volume processes such as payment processing and lifecycle management the team needs to build for, as well as heavy data pipelines for various accounting and reporting jobs which need to scale as we continue to grow. The members team also builds out the internal tools and portals which allows other business units at Bread to operate each and every day. With respect to our consumers and financial partners, this team is building the post-checkout engine of Bread.

The Members team is cross functional and owns multiple backends written in Go, as well as multiple React frontends, all of which are integral to the success of the business.

Your role at Bread:

  • Manage a product engineering team, including professional development and leading them towards product delivery and success
  • Work with senior engineering leadership to guide and influence the direction of the engineering organization
  • Work actively with product to both understand and help develop the engineering roadmap
  • Be accountable for leading design and implementation of new features and iterations of our core platform
  • Block and tackle, when necessary, for engineers on your team
  • Be data oriented and focused on what it takes to deliver reliable, scalable, and efficient products and technologies

What we are looking for:

Must Have:

  • Experience managing and/or leading engineering teams
  • A penchant for Back End engineering
  • Expertise building scalable, reliable distributed systems
  • Expert knowledge of server-side languages and data stores (such as: Go, Java, Rust, Postgresql, Redis, etc)
  • Experience with public web APIs
  • A passion for product, engineering and technology

Nice to have:

  • Proven experience managing/leading a 4+ person team
  • Experience developing systems intended for cloud deployments (AWS,k8s, docker)
  • Experience with Go/PostgreSQL/Rabbit/Redis
  • Experience with front-end technologies (Javascript, React)
  • Experience managing in an OKR and KPI environment
  • Experience on agile teams
  • Experience with message-based, loosely coupled architectures (we use gRPC, RabbitMQ and Redis)
  • Knowledge of financial products
  • You enable your team at every chance you get

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.

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.

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

One thing we like to do for our Engineers at Bread is provide the opportunity to participate in Working Groups. These are quarterly teams of 4 to 6 engineers that set out to tackle a specific engineering initiative outside of their core engineering team. This is another opportunity as an engineer at Bread to have impact across all of Engineering!

Chief Technology Officer

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.
