Senior Backend Engineer, Payments



Software Engineering
San Diego, CA, USA
Posted on Saturday, March 2, 2024

Ōura is an award-winning and fast-growing startup that helps people track all stages of sleep and activity using the Ōura Ring and connected app. By providing daily feedback and practical steps to inspire healthy lifestyles, we’ve helped over one million people improve their sleep, understand their bodies, and transform their health. We’re on a mission to empower every person to own their inner potential, and we’re seeking candidates who want to impact our journey.

Empowering the world starts with living our values and empowering our team. As a quickly growing company focused on helping people live healthier and happier lives, we work to promote work-life balance and ensure that our team members have what they need to do their best work — both in and out of the office. We have offices in San Francisco and San Diego for those who prefer hybrid or office settings and employee hubs, including New York City, Boston, Los Angeles, Seattle, and more.

We’re seeking an experienced Senior Backend Engineer to join our growing Software engineering organization in the USA. We’re made up of a set of cross-functional squads, each with a specific area of ownership across the Oura product. You will work on the Checkout Squad, improving the experience and resiliency for customers to purchase rings and begin their health journey with Oura.

What you’ll do:

  • Be part of a revenue-generating organization with a charter to increase Oura’s brand recognition, drive online sales, and build an intuitive user experience to drive traffic and foster customer loyalty and retention. We focus on both D2C and strategic partnerships with retail partners.
  • Be a key contributor on our Checkout Squad, helping to shape and define the architecture and approach to our backend systems as we continue to scale. You’ll be expected to be comfortable doing technical discovery, planning, leading design reviews, and leading feature development through delivery and beyond.
  • Collaborate with Product, Security, TPM, and engineering leaders across Oura to deliver critical business initiatives.
  • Contribute technical expertise to the team, while mentoring and leading more junior engineers.
  • Champion engineering excellence, establish key metrics, and drive continuous operational improvements.
