Melio is set out to digitize the B2B payments process to help small businesses spend more time managing their business than their bank balance.
What makes Melio unique?
Well, we’ve made B2B payments as simple as P2P payment apps. Currently, 42% of business payments (10 trillion dollars!) in the US are made by check… yikes!
Our solution made Melio one of the fastest growing fintech companies in 2021 and we’re just getting started.
What’s our stack?
In Melio, we are all in with AWS Serverless. Meaning all our services are managed by AWS and our infrastructure is deployed using SAM CLI built over cloudformation.
Serverless gives us the freedom to build, scale and deploy applications faster than ever. We combine the usage of relational and document dbs, write mainly in typescript and python for consistency and ability to share resources.
You can read more about it in our tech blog.
How You'll Make An Impact
Our backend infrastructure is constructed from 3 main groups:
The payments group builds the engine that drives melio. The group is responsible for the orchestration of the flow of funds between businesses both inside the US and internationally. Banks systems are old fashioned and our challenge to digitize them was described by our VP of CustomerService as building a Ferrari over bicycle wheels.
The Risk group is what keeps Melio in business. The more volume we transfer the more challenging the tasks for Risk and Compliance. Working closely with Data Science to build fraud detection, eligibility services, money losses prevention and more.
Data Infra Group:
When money is involved you need to know as much as you can about all participants. This is done by integrating with as many third parties as we can, getting all the data into our data-lake and making it available for all departments. From gathering enrichments for the risk & compliance teams to helping find leads for the sales team, data-infra is in charge of all data and ML-Ops in melio.
