Job Description

What do we do?

Paddle offers SaaS companies a completely different approach to their payment infrastructure. Instead of assembling and maintaining a complex stack of payments-related apps and services, we’re a Merchant of Record for our customers. That means we take away 100% of the pain of payment fragmentation. It’s faster, safer, cheaper, and, above all, way better.

We’re backed by investors including KKR, FTV Capital, Kindred, Notion, and 83North and serve over 3000 software sellers in 245 territories globally.

The role:

The DX team at Paddle are making Paddle a world-class experience for the developers who are integrating our billing platform. We do that by providing documentation that’s powered by a custom stack built on top of Markdoc and Next.js as well as offering developer tooling like our SDKs, including our flagship client library Paddle.js and a hand-written Node SDK.

We’re looking for a frontend engineer who possesses a solid background in frontend development with React and vanilla Typescript. Some experience and understanding of build tools would be an asset. Experience with checkout and payment systems and related technologies, third-party integrations, and a user-centric design philosophy will also be particularly valued.

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 and SDKs that will delight our users.

What you'll do:

  • Help shape the design system and work on the platform that powers developer.paddle.com

  • Develop and maintain public libraries used by millions of people.

  • Work with colleagues across product and engineering to ensure the customer-facing developer experience we provide is cohesive, powerful, and delightful.

  • Develop new functionality which empowers our product teams and help provide our customers with everything they need to onboard, build and evolve with Paddle.

  • Help mature our API practices and processes to speed up the development of the Paddle API ensuring it remains cohesive, consistent and bug-free.

  • Drive innovation with new features that will delight developers.

  • Work with a variety of AWS products to ensure Paddle is able to deliver a performant and reliable service, including Cloudfront, S3 and a lot more.

  • 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 technical skill set includes: Next.js, TypeScript, React/Vue, Node, RTL/Jest, Jenkins or any other CI/CD platform.

  • Implemented high performing front-end applications in agile Product teams.

  • Have an interest in, or have worked with Laravel

  • Experience working closely with Product designers and pairing for ideation sessions.

  • Have a strong understanding of API principles and best practices.

  • Have experience producing SDKs, either open source or in-house, or other developer tooling.

  • A keen eye for good UX and DX, and a desire to provide the slickest experience you can to your users.
