Uplift was founded by a passionate team of travel industry veterans to provide a better way to shop, book, pay and experience travel. Our mission is to make travel more accessible, affordable and rewarding for everyone. By offering simple, flexible payments, Uplift benefits consumers who are able to book now and pay over time. Uplift is a well financed Series C startup serving the $1.4 Trillion consumer travel segment.
The Platform/Servicing Engineering Team at Uplift handles the server-side systems required to post-loan creation and servicing such as customer management, back office portal, merchant including loan payments and data analytics. It involves creating and interfacing with various internal and external micro-services, queues, key-value store as well as traditional SQL databases and AWS products and services. Some of the work here is customer-facing, involving full-stack applications, but also in creating serverless applications that handle financial operations like automating payments and creating virtual credit cards.
The Sr. Manager / Director of Engineering will be spinning up a new development team in Toronto. The leader for the Toronto office will be able to respond to the challenges of having the head office out-of-country, integrating with remote teams, managing culture and quality, and acting as the technical leader for a team of 10+ developers.
