Spreedly is the world’s first, and leading, Payments Orchestration solution. Our vision is that the world is better with a diversified, inclusive payment ecosystem. Our mission is to accelerate commerce with an open, secure, and flexible payment platform that welcomes all payment participants. Backed by Spectrum Equity, with a $75M investment, Spreedly is experiencing rapid growth.

Connecting to multiple payment services, known as payment orchestration, is the new standard. With Spreedly’s PCI-compliant cloud solution, merchants can connect to multiple payment services simultaneously, optimize their payment stack, control card data, and accept alternative payment types.

Our employees help us execute against our vision through building a culture focused on autonomy, transparency, and collaboration in a dynamic, high-growth organization.

Spreedly is seeking a senior developer evangelist to join our marketing team to cultivate a community of developers to build payments solutions with Spreedly.

  • Networking skills - you thrive on building a community and engaging with them on a regular basis (including active listening) to improve our offering (product, documentation, public content) and customer experience.

You will

  • identify, attend, support, and speak at events, meetups, hackathons, etc. that are developer centric to spread the Spreedly message and engage the community on their needs
  • produce regular content targeted to the developer community (blog, videos, social content, community content)
  • support the development of programmer centric content from Spreedly by working closely with engineering, documentation, marketing and solutions engineering
  • support and grow the PAYMENTSfn community and facilitate engagement amongst members
  • represent the “voice of the developer” internally at Spreedly, as a key member of the go-to-market team

Requirements

  • 7+ years of development experience building web applications
  • Proficiency in 1 or more of the following areas: server/api communications (Ruby, Python/Go, Java) and front-end development (node/react/angular) or mobile SDK work with Swift + Java. Today, we work in Ruby, Rails, and Elixir for some of our technologies at Spreedly

Due to the sensitive nature of what Spreedly does- handling payment data- candidates must complete a successful background check. If you have concerns along those lines, please discuss with us sooner rather than later- we do not want you to waste time in the hiring process and get disqualified at the end if we can help it.

Some of our positions are open to remote applicants. If this is the case it will be sited in the job posting just below the position name. Unless otherwise stated, remote positions are open to candidates in the contiguous US only. We are not set up to support remote employees from CA, NY, or outside the contiguous US. All applicants must have a US work visa.

We appreciate your interest in our company. Because of the high volume of resume flow, we may only respond to those candidates that we think will be a potential fit.
