Create a world of possibilities
Exciting things are happening in the finance industry, and they’re happening here. We’re on a mission to deliver honest financial products that improve lives. To do that, we need the best and brightest minds. We’re seeking change-makers from diverse backgrounds to help us achieve our goals. If that sounds like you—you’ve come to the right place.
Our recent university graduates contribute to our growing engineering team in meaningful and exciting ways. In a cohort-centric onboarding experience, you’ll join with other recent graduates, helping you expand your network and meet new friends.
You’ll have the chance to learn under amazing mentors. They’ll set you up for success, provide guidance, and give you the tools and resources necessary to expand your knowledge and skill set. You can also find other mentors through external programs, like our Womeng Community group. Learn more about our DEI initiatives here.
Some of our past recent graduates have worked on projects like:
Developing Affirm’s in-store product. One of the first projects was to create, design, and implement a text-to-apply support with store-specific SMS codes. This allows users to effortlessly apply for an Affirm loan in brick-and-mortar stores, and merchants to examine application rates and data on a store-by-store basis.
Building data pipelines to enable greater resiliency and accuracy in Affirm’s loan origination processes with our originating bank. Implemented a system to report all loan applications created with Affirm and sourced data from various data warehouses across the company.
Conducting a major overhaul of our cryptography platform, which is used to encrypt sensitive customer data such as Social Security numbers and credit reports, as well as to perform other cryptographic operations. Additionally, designed and implemented a public key infrastructure for mutually authenticated and encrypted communication between backend services.
Affirm is a remote-first company, and we’re now hosting our interns remotely. We pride ourselves on keeping the health, safety, and well-being of our employees top of mind while creating meaningful and memorable moments.
Our program is structured holistically to offer the components we feel make an internship a valuable opportunity. You’ll have the opportunity to network and meet awesome mentors, participate in fun and engaging remote events, and create a meaningful impact through your work.
Some past intern projects include:
Building the batch pipelines for Affirm’s in-store product, and implementing integration systems that reported users’ loan activities at Walmart. Additionally, building mass marketing emails for Walmart’s launch across all U.S. supercenters.
Building a bank portal aggregate tool to allow accounting to pull ledger data more efficiently. Decreased run time by over 97%, resulting in cleaner code.
Rebuilt the merchant browser page of iOS with a new UI, and a more robust codebase and architecture to seamlessly fit in with Shop V3 and future updates to the iOS app.
Historically, our internships have been focused on technical roles, but we are now at a place where we can expand our internship program to other parts of the organization. We are excited to launch our inaugural Business Internship Program for summer 2022! Check out our Careers page to learn more about these roles and apply.
