Job Description

Build world-class payout APIs

Xendit is a fintech company that provides payment infrastructure across South-east Asia. Xendit processes payments, runs marketplaces, disburses payroll and loans, detects fraud and helps other businesses grow exponentially. We serve these companies by providing a suite of world-class APIs and a dashboard UI that simplifies processes. 

Our main focus is to build the most advanced payment rails for Indonesia, with a clear goal in mind — to make payments in South-east Asia  simple, secure and easy for everyone. We currently serve SMEs to some of the region’s largest tech startups and also giant-sized businesses like Samsung. We process millions of transactions monthly, growing 8% month on month for the last 3 years. We are trusted and backed by some of the largest VCs in the world, who invested in Facebook, Slack, Twitch and Grab, and are alumni of the prestigious YCombinator (S15).


Our disbursement team works on Xendit’s biggest products: xenDisburse and xenBatch. These products support the region’s biggest fintech and ecommerce businesses in the high-volume, time-sensitive payouts needed to run their business. The team is responsible for building mission-critical services, maintaining connections to banks and providers, and working through various issues associated with local infrastructure to ensure that payouts are executed successfully, correctly and promptly. 

We're looking for a highly passionate software engineer to help us refine our disbursements product so that it is highly scalable, reliable and fault-tolerant. You’ll be joining our technical team to build a complex distributed system used by regional customers.  You’ll get to  work with our business and operations teams to understand and solve customer pain points and work with other engineers to build new features that will delight our customers. 


  1. Understand customer needs and requirements, prioritise builds and add those into the technical roadmap
  2. Account for the delivery of technical roadmap items on time
  3. Drive infrastructure improvements that scale us from millions of monthly transactions to tens of millions of monthly transactions
  4. Design and develop REST API to support business requirements
  5. Write high-quality maintainable code, test, PR review then ship it
  6. Deliver products with standardized security, reliability, and stability
  7. Enhance our product reliability to maintain our performance threshold of 99% of disbursements processed under 1 minute & 99% of disbursements successfully sent to the recipient 
  8. Work closely with local banks and partners to scale up our product coverage
  9. Do whatever it takes to make Xendit  succeed

You may be a good fit if

  • 1+  years of experience in developing, designing, and deploying large scale applications
  • Bachelor’s and/or Master’s degree, preferably in CS, or equivalent experience
  • Experience in any of the following: Node.js, TypeScript, Golang
  • Familiarity with REST API design and development
  • Familiarity with relational databases and NoSQL such as Posgres and MongoDB
  • Familiarity with Scrum development methodologies
  • Ability to break down complex product requirements into well-groomed user stories
  • Thrive on being independent and have proven you can push towards a goal by yourself
  • Communicate well across teams

It would be amazing if you also have

  • Familiarity with containerization technologies, including docker and kubernetes
  • Familiarity with cloud infrastructure such as AWS
  • Experience in building unit, integration, and E2E test

What we care about

  • Solve for the customer first: You build what customers want.  You think about what is right for customers, not what is easiest for you
  • Demonstrate mastery of honey badgery: You make ambitious goals. Then execute…no matter what stands in the way.  When knocked down, you get up
  • Take on challenges willingly and can be trusted to execute: You can be trusted to get things done right the first time quickly.  You hit your deadlines
  • You’re like us: You smile a lot, think work is fun and don’t take yourself too seriously. You measure yourself against the best and believe feedback is the breakfast of champions.  You follow the golden rule
  • You’re remarkable: People naturally talk about how awesome you are.  If we can’t find someone who raves about you then it’s unlikely we will too
