Affirm is reinventing credit to make it more honest and friendly, giving consumers the flexibility to buy now and pay later without any hidden fees or compounding interest.

The Tenders Engineering team is responsible for the virtual card platform at Affirm. Virtual cards enable consumers to pay with Affirm’s financial products (interest-bearing installment loans, split pay, etc.) anywhere that accepts card payments. This applies to both online and in-store transactions with digital wallet integrations such as Apple Pay and Google Pay.

We are looking for a highly motivated, experienced software engineer to join us as we continue to build a better buying experience predicated on honesty and trust.
