Software Engineer - Billing

 

About the job

Software engineers at Discourse are generalists. In this role, your main focus will be on engineering work related to customer billing.

 

Discourse is primarily a hosting company that makes money from subscriptions. As the volume of transactions grows, our billing code needs to scale, serve customers around the world, and comply with regulations. We also need to monitor our subscription business and have reports that can help us make decisions.

 

Responsibilities

 

  • Payment processor integration (Stripe)
  • Accounting software integration
  • Work on customer-facing UI
  • Assist with reporting and dashboards
  • Evaluate payment options to help us grow internationally
  • Suggest ways to improve improve our processes and the customer experience
  • Communicate with many teams, including engineering, finance, and business analysts
  • Communicate with customers related to billing problems
  • Participate in code reviews

 

About you

You work well independently and remotely with minimal amounts of day-to-day micromanagement. You should be comfortable driving a feature from the design to release. At Discourse the ability to communicate well in writing is paramount. Most of your interaction with team members will be in writing. You will also interact regularly with the public on https://meta.discourse.org. We have no central physical office, we are 100% remote.

 

You should be passionate about open source and comfortable with public code reviews. You should also be comfortable picking up and exploring new technologies as needed.

 

You have some Ruby and JavaScript experience. You have experience using APIs to integrate with external systems like Stripe. All Discourse applicants have a 10-40 hour paid trial project (over 2-10 weeks) prior to joining the team. The trial project usually involves adding a feature to Discourse or a Discourse plugin.

 

About our Pay & Benefits

We believe that high-quality benefits make our team more effective. We’ve been thoughtful about our benefits package which include a completely flexible schedule, 5 weeks of vacation per year, funding for a co-working stipend, and much more!

 

Lastly, we believe in having a welcoming workplace where people with diverse backgrounds and cultures can create something great together.

About The Company
Discourse Discourse is the 100% open source discussion platform

Discourse is the 100% open source discussion platform built for the next decade of the Internet. Use it as a mailing list, discussion forum, long-form chat room, and more!

Discourse is a from-scratch reboot, an attempt to reimagine what a modern Internet discussion forum should be today, in a world of ubiquitous smartphones, tablets, Facebook, and Twitter.

We’re civilized.

Our trust system means that the community builds a natural immune system to defend itself from trolls, bad actors, and spammers — and the most engaged forum members can assist in the governance of their community. We put a trash can on every street corner with a simple, low-friction flagging system. Positive behaviors are encouraged through likes and badges. We gently, constantly educate members in a just-in-time manner on the universal rules of civilized discourse.

Uncompromisingly open source.

There is only one version of Discourse – the awesome open source version. There’s no super secret special paid commercial version with better or more complete features. Because Discourse is 100% open source forum software, now and forever, it belongs to you as much as it belongs to us. That’s how community works.
