What do we do?

As the SaaS space expands, there’s more potential than ever for growing software companies.

Having a great product is only part of the journey. B2B SaaS companies today face endless competition, live or die by customer acquisition costs, have to earn customer loyalty every day, need to operate across borders, and must navigate increasingly complex regulations.

Our all-in-one platform is purpose-built for modern SaaS execution and already powers growth for over 2000 software companies, globally. Our Revenue Delivery Platform integrates checkout, payment, and subscription management, making it easy for businesses to activate new business models, enter new markets, turn on new offerings, and renew subscriptions without friction and we handle compliance globally, so our Sellers always operate with full integrity.

The role:

As the key integration for our seller’s systems, Paddle cares deeply about the developer experience we provide them. With our product offering continuing to grow, our Developer Experience team is dedicated to creating a consistent, feature-rich platform experience for developers to integrate with.

If you’re a product-minded Engineer that appreciates a great developer experience, you’re exactly what we’re looking for. Working in a cross-functional team of engineers, product managers, technical writers and designers, you’ll be providing a DX framework for our product teams to rapidly ship cohesive products as well as building out end-to-end features that will delight our users.

What you'll do:

  • Work with colleagues across product and engineering to ensure the customer-facing developer experience we provide is cohesive, powerful and easy to deliver.
  • Develop new functionality which empower our product teams and help provide customers with everything they need to onboard, build and evolve with Paddle
  • Define and build critical architecture that scales for our product teams and customers alike
  • Drive innovation with new features that will delight developers
  • Perform code reviews and mentor more junior engineers to maximise their potential and growth
  • Help shape our team and wider engineering culture and help make sure Paddle remains an exceptional place to work

We'd love to hear from you if you:

  • Have a strong understanding of API principles and best practices
  • Experience building APIs in any backend programming language and ideally the infrastructure that enables them

And we’d like to see:

  • A keen eye for good UX and DX, and a desire to provide the slickest experience you can to your users
  • Ability to work with stakeholders on multiple fronts to help shape and deliver the developer experience roadmap

We’d be especially excited to hear from you if you:

  • Have experience producing SDKs, either open source or in-house, or other developer tooling
  • Have some understanding of Protocol Buffers, gRPC, message queue systems or event driven architecture
  • Have experience with contract, and other forms, of end-to-end testing
  • Have worked with distributed systems and have solved, or have a good understanding, of the problems that you can face when doing so.
