Senior Software Engineer - Payments & Trust



Software Engineering
Posted on Saturday, May 25, 2024
Lime is the world's largest shared electric vehicle company. We’re on a mission to build a future where transportation is shared, affordable and carbon-free. Our electric bikes and scooters have powered 400+ million rides in 250+ cities on 5 continents, replacing an estimated 100+ million car trips. Named a Time 100 Most Influential Company and Fast Company Brand That Matters, we achieved a fully profitable year in 2022, becoming the first in our industry to reach this milestone.
We are looking for a strong senior software engineer to join our fast-growing team and contribute to two critical areas at Lime: Payments and Trust.
On the payments side, Lime's global presence makes payments a big challenge to tackle - our riders transact in more than 20 countries across multiple payment methods on five continents. This team focuses on building Lime's Payments platform, driving down transaction costs, improving authorization rates, and expanding local payments integrations. We also work on reducing payment friction and coming up with new innovative ways for our customers to pay for and ride the way they want.
On the trust side, Lime's micro-mobility platform relies on the trust of our consumers. We are perfecting the balance between accurately identifying those who abuse our platform without affecting our community at large. This team is building a real-time risk engine that leverages heuristic rules and machine learning to evaluate every transaction, provides the foundational infrastructure for us to make accurate decisions in real-time, and ultimately drive a strong bottom line for Lime.

What you'll do:

  • Collaborate with other leaders (PM, DS, Operation, Finance, Legal, etc.) across the company to solve complex, technical, and interdependent payment and fraud problems that directly affect Lime's top and bottom line.
  • Develop robust and extensible engineering platforms that can reliably serve millions of transactions at Lime
  • Build ML systems to optimize payment performance and improve risk management.
  • Be diligent about tracking and analyzing data to initiate data-backed proposals and make data-driven decisions.
  • Contribute to shaping overall engineering culture at the company.
  • Help scale the team by coaching and developing other engineers, attracting and retaining world-class talent.

About you:

  • 4+ years of professional software development experience, and a track record of building impactful products or systems.
  • Owner's mindset with strong execution. Have the passion and drive to apply engineering, machine learning and statistical skills to solving complex business problems.
  • Technical proficiency to understand and contribute to the design and implementation of projects and ideas.
  • Excellent communication, collaboration and effective prioritization skills in working with competing priorities.
  • Have strong analytical skills and can extract critical information from analyzing transaction data and user patterns.
  • Preferred Experience:
  • Domain expertise in the payments, anti-abuse or fraud detection space.
  • Experience in partnering with other leads from engineering, product, operations and compliance to craft roadmaps and measures of success.
The anticipated salary range for this position is CA$ 126,000.00 to CA$ 174,000.00. Equity and benefits may be provided as part of the compensation package, depending on the position offered. Not all candidates will be eligible for the upper end of the salary range. Exact salary will ultimately depend on multiple factors, which may include the successful candidate's skills, experience and other qualifications as well as the candidate's location of residence. In addition to base salary, some roles may be eligible for a variable bonus based on a combination of company performance, employee performance, and management discretion.
