Job Description

Your job as an engineering manager will be more of a hybrid role at the start. Currently the team has 2 engineers, so upon joining the team you will do a lot of coding and have a lot of individual contributions. As you hire more engineers on the team, your role will transition to a managerial one.

As an Android payment engineer, you will work on payment features directly used by millions of shoppers worldwide. You will have a great deal of responsibility for each project you work on and will have the flexibility to influence design and execution. With full transparency to all metrics, you will get to see how your features directly impact the company’s performance and make data-driven decisions.

As a manager you will be building our payment team, managing engineering processes, leading a wide variety of payments projects, actively collaborating with external partners and internal business teams, and supporting everything payments related on the Android team.

For this role, you should be hands-on, driven, want to make an impact and grow your career and have a solid foundation in computer science. You should have strong competencies in Android development, software design, problem solving, testing and debugging, and contribute under a great deal of independence. We are ultimately looking for someone who is capable and passionate to help us hack social commerce.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My goal coming out of university was to learn how to scale the infrastructure of a growing company. Larger tech companies have mostly solved these scalability problems and Wish gave me the opportunity to solve tough problems hands on. Wish is now handling 100x the traffic since I joined and I'm still learning new things everyday.
