Engineering at Venmo

We teach and learn from one another, and push each other to be at our creative and analytical bests.

  • Help triage bugs, track software defects, and ensure their timely resolution

  • Lead and participate in development life cycle activities like design, coding, testing and production release

  • Define and steward technical standards and code quality

  • Conduct peer code reviews for pull requests

  • Provide mentorship to fellow Web engineers

What we are looking for:

  • Minimum 5 years total experience delivering large-scale JavaScript web applications, with at least 3 years working with React.js, Node.js, etc.

  • 3+ years of experience building single page applications with popular JS frameworks and libraries (React, Angular, Ember, Babel, Webpack, Underscore, etc.).

  • Experience with test automation: TDD, unit/integration/functional testing.

  • Experience with HTML5, CSS3, Sass, Bootstrap, and cross-browser and device development.

  • Solid understanding of object-oriented design and programming concepts, core JavaScript concepts like scope/closures, the event loop and asynchronous callbacks, promises.

  • Have a passion for quality and writing clean, solid, readable code that scales and performs well. Strong desire to learn, think creatively, and share knowledge with others.

  • Strong communication skills with the ability to understand and explain technical issues to a non-technical audience

We know the confidence gap and imposter syndrome can get in the way of meeting spectacular candidates. Please don't hesitate to apply.
