Change how payments are made in Japan with a real time distributed platform, handling millions of users -

Role overview

Paidy is Japan's pioneer and leading BNPL service with the mission to spread trust through society and to give people room to dream.

Paidy offers instant, monthly-consolidated credit to consumers by removing hassles from payment and purchase experiences. Paidy uses proprietary models and machine learning to underwrite transactions in seconds and guarantee payments to merchants. Paidy increases revenue for merchants by reducing the number of incomplete transactions, increasing conversion rates, boosting average order values, and facilitating repeat purchases from consumers. 

Paidy has reached an agreement to join PayPal, the global payments company. Paidy will continue to operate its existing business, maintain its brand and support a wide variety of consumer wallets and marketplaces by providing convenient and innovative services.

Team

In 2022 our scope of work will expand to include designing, building and maintaining new GUI tools that empower internal teams to experiment with and implement better fraud detection and prevention methods, credit risk policies, and collections policies to further maximise our revenue. We like to use Scala in a functional, pragmatic way to ease the burden of delivering quality software quickly. By prioritizing simple solutions and an iterative approach, we get code into production quickly and support a tight feedback loop.

The role

Experience with backend technologies, Scala and functional programming are a big plus but easilysubstituted with an eagerness to learn them. You will be involved in all stages of development, from initial conversations to understand and define the problem statements, architecturing and building the technical solutions and their infrastructure, to validating and releasing it to our users. You will collaborate with the rest of the team to experiment with and then decide on engineering standards and best practices that work for us and you will get the chance to share them with the rest of the engineering teams. 

About you

  • Experience with modern front end technologies, e.g. ECMAScript, React, HTML, CSS, SASS/SCSS…
  • Experience designing and building REST and GraphQL APIs.
  • Experience with maintaining and further developing existing code bases.
  • Knowledge of strongly typed or functional programming languages, e.g. Scala, Typescript, Rust, Kotlin, Haskell…
  • Knowledge of functional programming concepts or the willingness to learn
  • them on the job.
  • Excellent communication skills, ability to interact effectively with
  • multidisciplinary teams.
  • Experience with CircleCI, AWS, Fargate, Terraform and Datadog is a plus.
  • Experience with Cassandra, Postgres, ElasticSearch and Kafka is a plus.

Paidy was founded with the mission to create a world of “We remove the barriers, embrace simplicity”, offering its real-time monthly consolidated credit service all across Japan. Paidy started Japan’s first instant post-pay credit service for ecommerce consumers in October 2014. Paidy requires no pre-registration or credit card to use; Paidy consumers purchase products online using only a mobile phone number and email address (verification is established though a four-digit code via SMS or voice pin-code) and settle a single monthly bill for all their purchases, either at a convenience store, by bank transfer or auto debit. Paidy also supports multi-pay installments and subscriptions. There are currently almost 4,000,000 Paidy accounts in use (Oct 2020)!! Paidy has proved a powerful means of persuading first time buyers to transact online. Its proprietary models and machine learning mean that transactions are underwritten in seconds, with guaranteed payment to merchants. Paidy increases merchant revenues by reducing incomplete transactions, increasing conversion rates, boosting average order values, and facilitating easy repeat buying.
