Senior Software Engineer

Xendit provides payment infrastructure across Southeast Asia, with a focus on Indonesia and the Philippines.




Xendit provides payment infrastructure across Southeast Asia, with a focus on Indonesia and the Philippines. We process payments, power marketplaces, disburse payroll and loans, provide KYC solutions, prevent fraud, and help businesses grow exponentially. We serve our customers by providing a suite of world-class APIs, eCommerce platform integrations, and easy to use applications for individual entrepreneurs, SMEs, and enterprises alike.

Our main focus is building the most advanced payment rails for Southeast Asia, with a clear goal in mind — to make payments across in SEA simple, secure and easy for everyone. We serve thousands of businesses ranging from SMEs to multinational enterprises, and process millions of transactions monthly. We’ve been growing rapidly since our inception in 2015, onboarding hundreds of new customers every month, and backed by global top-10 VCs. We’re proud to be featured on among the fastest growing companies by Y-Combinator.


We build digital payments infrastructure for Indonesia focusing on platform businesses. While accepting payments digitally has become easier, it is extremely challenging for platforms to manage payments across multiple parties (e.g. suppliers, vendors). Our team streamlines accepting and sending money for platform businesses. Our solutions enable platforms and marketplaces to onboard new partners, route and split payments, and easily monitor their payments infrastructure.


  1. Design, build, and maintain our payments products with a focus on customer needs

  2. Architect product infrastructure to ensure reliability, scalability and security 

  3. Collaborate with engineering teams across the company to build new features at scale

  4. Define the technical roadmap of the product together with engineering leadership

  5. Do whatever it takes to make Xendit succeed

You may be a good fit if

  • Successful track record of developing quality software products and shipping production-ready software

  • JavaScript expertise, and a familiarity with TypeScript

  • Strong knowledge of REST and pub/sub design patterns

  • Experience with relational and NoSQL database schema design and query optimization

  • Experience with unit, integration, and E2E test frameworks such as jest, mocha, supertest, and cucumber

  • Ability to mentor and level up other software engineers on your team

  • Experience with Scrum/Agile development methodologies

It would be amazing if you also have

  • Experience in leading software engineering teams in a technical leadership capacity

  • Experience working with payment APIs

  • Familiarity with containerization, including Docker and Kubernetes

  • Proficiency with Golang

  • Ability to architect distributed systems on cloud computing platforms such as AWS, GCP, or AliCloud (including serverless approaches)

  • Ability to guide a team through refactoring high-throughput legacy code


What we care about

  • Solve for the customer first: You build what customers want. You think about what is right for customers, not what is easiest for you

  • Demonstrate mastery of honey badgery: You make ambitious goals. Then execute…no matter what stands in the way. When knocked down, you get up

  • Take on challenges willingly and can be trusted to execute: You can be trusted to get things done right the first time quickly. You hit your deadlines

  • You’re like us: You smile a lot, think work is fun and don’t take yourself too seriously. You measure yourself against the best and believe feedback is the breakfast of champions. You follow the golden rule.

  • You’re remarkable: People naturally talk about how awesome you are. If we can’t find someone who raves about you then it’s unlikely we will too.
