Software Engineer
Come join the LevelUp team to help build the next generation payments network and customer engagement platform from our HQ in downtown Boston. We take pride in our inclusive and collaborative team atmosphere that encourages constant learning and growth, and empowers our employees to use their unique strengths and perspectives to make the biggest impact possible. And if we can have some fun, eat tons of food and win the Boston Business Journal’s #1 Best Place to Work Award (which we did!) along the way, even better.
Our Software Engineers sit on our Platform engineering team to build and maintain the core set of systems that power the LevelUp ecosystem, an online ordering interface and network of dozens of mobile payments apps (maybe even the ones you use to order lunch) and point-of-sale integrations. We are a team of smart, highly motivated engineers that place a high value on writing well crafted, thoroughly tested, and maintainable code. We’re growing extremely fast and are taking on the exciting challenges of keeping up with new product development while scaling our services to support higher volume and more clients.
Curious about current projects?
Here are some of the challenges that drive development for the Platform team:
- What tools can we expose to give businesses new ways to excite and reward their customers?
- What partners might want to build on top of our platform and how can we make sure our API supports their needs?
- To support international clients, what sorts of changes do we need to make to our system?
- We’re in a period of very rapid growth - what do we need to do to make sure that our systems hold up?
- We generate a ton of data - what sort of interesting things can we do with it?

Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It's fun coming to work because there's a constant buzz in the office. Everyone's excited to be here, working on big things, but also having fun collaborating and just being around each other. The marketing team is really tight knit- even though we're busy heading up our own projects, we make sure to take time to catch up on what we're up to.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

The sales career path I set out to conquer led me down a very different path than I expected. I recognized an opportunity to contribute to the success of the company in a different way– by supporting our hiring efforts and growing our HR department. I had little to no experience, but I proved very quickly that I was hungry to learn.

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our inside sales team lives on the company's front lines, playing an integral part in our growth strategy. Our sales team has direct access to our CSO, CEO and the entire marketing team. Their feedback, ideas, and suggestions -- even down to who they choose to call day in and day out ultimately define who our next client becomes.
