Senior Engineer at Bread Finance

About the company
Bread wants to make essential purchases affordable to regular people without the outrageous charges, fees, and APRs that are prevalent in today's world. We transform pricing in e-commerce – the $1000 couch you’re looking at is now a $50/month charge. Clear, transparent terms. Fair rates. No hidden fees. And a powerful, flexible merchant API that seamlessly plugs financing anywhere into the ecommerce experience. Our team is top tier. Our CEO ran credit portfolios at one of the world’s biggest investment funds, and has for years been involved with many successful fintech startups in New York. Our CTO spent years building high-end financial systems at banks and asset managers and then went to Yale Law School for fun. Our lead engineer was employee #1 at Admeld, spending years at Google after it bought his old company. Most importantly, we are a hard working, ambitious group that is devoted to our mission. And our VCs are top tier, too: RRE, Greycroft, Maveron, Red Swan, Box Group, and others. And they couldn’t be more excited about the ambition and scope of what we are building.
