Overview

Index is changing brick-and-mortar retail from the ground up.  More than just a mobile wallet, Index is building a payments system for both consumers and top-tier merchants. The market opportunity is staggeringly large and we’re looking for exceptional engineers to help us create products that will shape the future of commerce.  

 

This is what we care about…

  • Shipping solid features that users want.  We must always amaze users with how much we can do for them, quickly, and at scale.

  • Collaboration both within engineering, and with other parts of the company.  You should be able to explain ideas to others and debate merits of approaches in a positive way.  You should be able to listen, read and learn from others, who will also want to learn from you.

  • Trust. Being responsible with our users’ data: individual consumers and large merchants alike.  We earn our users’ trust by being thoughtful and careful both in our designs and in our day-to-day operations.

  • Writing beautiful code that is easy to read and easy to change. You should be able to refactor code so that it’s better. You should know how to write testable code and should value automated testing.

  • Seeking deep understanding.  It isn’t enough for you to just get something working once.  You feel compelled to understand the lower layers of things, so that you can reason about how things fit together and you can create more informed designs.

 

At Index you will…

  • Develop features in hours and days, not weeks and months.

  • Bring to market a best in class mobile wallet experience.

  • Write tests and own quality.

  • Write comments and documentation.

  • Work with other engineers and the design team on feature design.

 

Who you are…

You’re smart. You build cool things. You can work with a team. Index is a growing company and will throw new challenges your way every day. You’re excited about that.

 

In the past, you…

  • Finished a project you’d be proud to show us.

  • Picked up a B.S., B.A. or M.S. in Computer Science or a related field.

  • Have worked with large, complex object-oriented code bases.

  • Were able to prioritize and deliver your work in a self-directed manner.

  • Have written testable code.

  • Became fluent in Java.

  • Are experienced with asynchronous programming and multi-threading.

  • Have worked with databases and web services.

  • Know your way around UI Programming.

 

Oh, and we also have…

  • Awesome benefits coverage.

  • 17 company holidays and flexible vacation.

  • Catered team lunch (everyday).

  • In office puppy, piñata, pool and keg-a-rator.

  • Monthly team happy hours.

  • Tons of snacks and fancy coffee.

  • Great office in the heart of SF’s financial district.
