Web Developer

Merchant Warehouse is seeking a Web Developer to join our Software Engineering & Creative teams. Merchant Warehouse’s Genius™ Customer Engagement Platform is a breakthrough, industry-first solution that solves the problem of how to support mobile commerce in addition to traditional cash, credit, and debit payments on the merchant countertop all from a single, secure customer engagement device.

Genius enables merchants to take advantage of the increasing disruption, uncertainty and complexity with payment solutions today and turn these conditions into a competitive advantage that helps their business grow rather than be threatened and hurt by it.

Do you want to join a team of 300+ professionals working on the future of secure, mobile payments? An established company that’s still hungry (and growing) like a startup? An industry leader who processes over $10 billion annually from nearly 100k merchants? Read on for more details.

About the Team

The technical staff at Merchant Warehouse believes that code is our currency. Our team is working on the next generation of mobile payments – QR, NFC, Bluetooth, and EMV based digital wallets. Our code literally makes our merchants money and helps provide a less expensive and more seamless checkout experience for their customers.

We believe that small, empowered, self-motivated teams can do big things. Our culture values openness, transparency, empowerment, and innovation above all else. As engineers, you’ll find that we’re a pragmatic bunch who believe in choosing the right tool for the job, and aren’t dogmatic about any particular technology stack. You’ll find a mix of C#, Java, Groovy, Ruby, Node.js, PHP, Perl, and more. As human beings, we believe in contributing back to the community - both through our MW Cares initiative and through our Open Source contributions.

And we’re growing. Our engineering team has grown nearly 300% in 2013, with plans for continued growth in 2014. We expect our payment gateway will process an additional $5 billion in sales and 500MM transactions within the next year. We’re re-investing those returns where we’ll see the highest yield – in you.

About the Job

We're recruiting web developers to help create, extend, and maintain our web properties. Working closely with Digital Marketing, you’ll be part of a team that’s re-launching merchantwarehouse.com and redesigning our partner & agent portals. We want to create a better experience for our customers and a better position our brand. And we want you to be a part of it.

You will work with the marketing team to create an awesome web experience for all our different audiences that tells the story of why Merchant Warehouse is the right business partner for each of them.  We’re constantly working on expanding and improving our web properties to improve conversion rates, and we want a technical resource not only to implement ideas, but also to contribute and collaborate with us on new ideas and solutions.   We believe strongly in A/B testing and making data-driven decisions; failure exists only when we’re not trying to get better.

About You

You’re an engineer at heart, with solid UI/UX skills and a high attention to detail. You’re passionate about user experience and are always optimizing for the customer. You have experience with at least one major CMS (we don’t care which one), are comfortable with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, know your way around databases (eg. Oracle, Postgres, MySql, …)  and have at least one server side programming language under your belt (eg. PHP, C#, Ruby, Python, …). You’re comfortable with responsive design principles, and are experienced writing media that accommodates multiple browsers, devices, and form factors. And you’re eager to present your portfolio to us.

You will be successful in this role if you:


  • Get a kick out of responsive web design. HTML5 and CSS3 get you excited.
  • Care about usability and optimize for the customer.
  • Enjoy helping others around you grow as developers and be successful
  • Enjoy being autonomous and self-driven
  • While, at the same time, enjoy working in a collaborative environment
  • Take pleasure in making things
  • Are a continuous learner



What’s Next

If you're interested in joining the team, please send us your resume. You won’t be surprised to hear, though, that we won’t consider it without a cover letter. Let us know how you fit the bill for each of our requirements above. Merchant Warehouse is a place that values individuality and variety, so use your judgment and write to us in your own voice. If you have a web presence (Github, Stack Overflow, Twitter), contribute to an open source project, write a blog, participate in meetups, or have interests outside of coding, that means something to us, and we’d love to hear about it too.
