Job Description

Xendit is an Indonesian fintech company that provides payment infrastructure across Indonesia. 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 South-east Asia, 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.

    Account for the delivery of technical roadmap items on time
    Mentor and up-skill engineers on a day-to-day basis
    Advance engineering standards, tooling, and processes
    Identify technical gaps in Disbursements products & build improvements to the technology stack by planning the technical roadmap
    Drive infrastructure improvements that scale us from millions of monthly transactions to tens of millions of monthly transactions
    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
    Work closely with local banks and partners to scale up our product coverage
    Do whatever it takes to make Xendit succeed

You may be a good fit if

    2/3+ 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
    Experience with relational and NoSQL database schema design and query optimization
    Familiarity with unit, integration, and E2E test frameworks
    Exposure to large-scale microservices architectural patterns, such as well-designed REST APIs, circuit breakers, high volume data pipelines
    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
    Bonus points if you have experience in local bank integrations

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.
