Engineering at Venmo

Engineering is a craft, and at Venmo we want the internals of our software to be as elegant as the end user experience we are designing.

The Engineering Team at Venmo is a tightly-knit group of contributors, domain experts, managers, scientists, and researchers. We spend our days scaling our infrastructure and building new features to meet and exceed our users needs and wants. We work with a product team that is data-driven and human-centered in its design principles. We teach and learn from one another, and push each other to be at our creative and analytical bests. We're never completely done.

  • Scaling our architecture to support heavy growth while keeping the Venmo service fast and reliable.
  • Implement monitoring and alerting tools that can keep track of both system-level and business-level performance.
  • Expanding our configuration management infrastructure to enable rapid deployment of new services.
  • Working with security engineering to perform security audits and proactively make recommendations/improvements to keep security tight.
  • Contributing improvements back to the open source projects we use.
  • Working in a company that provides excellent benefits, values your contributions and presents ample opportunities for personal and professional growth.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
