Routable is a B2B payments platform built to make bill payments and mass payouts fast and seamless. Our mission is to be the simplest way to send and receive business-to-business payments. Unlike other payment platforms, Routable’s modern, easy-to-use API allows you to build a powerful payments infrastructure in minutes.

We’re a Series B startup with $46M in funding. We’re helping some of the largest marketplaces and gig economy companies, including Ticketmaster, Snackpass, and Garmentory. Hundreds of finance teams trust our decades of experience in building B2B payment solutions.

Our environment encourages intellectual curiosity, problem solving, and openness—one that provides the support and mentorship needed to succeed, learn, and grow. We'll make sure you have everything you need to do your best work and make an impact. We’re a fully remote startup with our team working from a city they love across the United States and Canada.

We’re looking for a Backend Engineer who excels at creating software in all layers of a web platform, understands databases and SQL, and is passionate about using cutting edge SaaS web-based technologies. Your focus will be to deliver high quality software solutions in a rapidly evolving B2B payments environment. It’s a unique chance to be an advocate for our incredible coding standards, efficiency, and reliability.

  • You are excited about building customer-facing features to help bring clarity to the confusing world of B2B payments.
  • You are comfortable implementing integrations with third-party APIs.
  • You think about testing while building a product.
  • You are self-motivated and are comfortable working within a small team or independently when required.


  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering or the equivalent experience
  • 5+ years experience with Python programming
  • Experience with Relational databases such as PostgreSQL, MySQL, etc
  • Experience working with various 3rd party integrations and APIs
  • Working knowledge of asynchronous task queue or job queues and distributed message passing such as Celery, Dramatiq, RabbitMQ
  • Experience writing automated integration and unit tests, using testing frameworks, and providing mentorship to other team members around testing approaches
  • Experience with Computer Science fundamentals (data representation, data structures, algorithms, object oriented programing, understanding of facade and adapter programming patterns)
  • Ability and willingness to work with legacy systems, with excellent troubleshooting skills
  • Ability to write robust and reusable components
  • Experience with Team-based development, using an agile development methodology
  • Impeccable communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Self-awareness, a positive attitude, a sense of humor, and empathy

Nice to have

  • Experience with Django and Django Rest Framework
  • Experience with building web applications, preferably in a start-up environment
  • Experience with Payment processing and accounting practices
  • Experience with Online Ledger Applications (e.g., NetSuite, XERO, QuickBooks, SageIntacct, etc)


You must be currently authorized to work in the United States, Canada or Europe on a full-time basis.

We are a remote first company! Rather than restrict ourselves to only find talent in one city, we’d rather find the absolute best people regardless of where they live.
