Wink, based in Dallas, Texas, is on a mission to eliminate identity theft and payments fraud while enhancing user convenience and speed for e-commerce transactions.

Wink’s patent pending platform simplifies and streamlines the payments acceptance stack for e- commerce while adding a unique state of the art biometric driven multi-factor authentication solution, thereby eliminating both friction and fraud.

Wink is a seed stage company having announced a $2.85M pre-seed round in early 2022. Our MVP is under development and 5+ customers and partners are positioned for pilot launches in 2022. We anticipate a $10M+ seed round later in 2022 / early 2023.

Wink is recruiting for a Software Architect in Dallas, Texas.

As a Software Architect, your responsibility is to define, design, and break down product & platform requirements into detailed software designs that comply with industry best practices, standard design patterns, OOPs & SOLID design principles, etc. You will work closely with the Engineering team to explain the architecture, document / communicate the finer points of the design, and validate the correct implementation of the design strategy.

Our payment solutions are deployed in cloud native environments providing highly scalable, multi-tenant solution for secure payments, identity management, configuration management and analytics. You will primarily work with the developer teams in bringing the solution to life, but you may also be called upon to support the sales process as a technology specialist during customer meetings. A great candidate will have a keen interest in elegant design patterns, minimizing code and maximizing reusability, and a passion for research. We know you won’t always have the best approach at your fingertips, but we certainly expect you to not be satisfied until you find it. This role is hands-on and requires a perfect combination of big picture understanding, a design-driven development mindset and deep programming language mastery.
