Senior Backend Engineer

Bengaluru   |   Full Time

XFlow is building cross-border payments infrastructure that provides businesses access to global markets, starting with those in India and subsequently other parts of South & South East Asia. We are enabling users to accept and payout money globally in a simple, reliable, compliant, transparent and financially compelling manner.

Building payments infrastructure is hard, and elegantly solving for cross-border payments infrastructure for businesses even more so. The complexity stems from the different changing regulatory requirements of the many countries that we will operate in, building payment guarantees in existing rails (or for that matter, creating a new payment rail altogether) and capturing value in a way where we are net additive to our users. This complexity excites and motivates us because we know that when we get it right, businesses around the world and their customers will be better off for it.

Finally, and we cannot stress this enough, culture eats everything else for breakfast. We aim to be an engineering driven company that believes finance problems are rooted in code and strongly prefer individuals who share a similar belief.
