Bolt is on a mission to democratize commerce. Since our founding, we’ve relentlessly focused on creating a world class buying experience that’s available for all online businesses – not just the giants of retail. Through CheckoutOS and our growing network of tens of millions of shoppers ready for one-click-checkout at the point of inspiration, Bolt is leveling the playing field for retailers and making shopping easy, trusted, and secure for consumers.

The fact that we're revolutionizing ecommerce is only half of the equation  – we’re also transforming the way we work. At Bolt, we’re committed to working Consciously, and believe in balancing execution with humanity. Our team is driven by the great technical challenges in our path, and by the thrill of creating a new standard for work. Come join us on the adventure today!

The Developer Experience (DevX) team works at the intersection between Bolt’s external developers and its API products. Direct developer integrations are becoming an increasingly important customer acquisition funnel for Bolt. We’re working to build the best API-driven checkout on the market.

The DevX team owns two very important areas:

  • External API platform: We iterate on Bolt’s API Platform and work across Bolt engineering to design, maintain, and build high quality products, including external APIs, Webhooks, and SDKs.
  • Developer Experience Product Features: We are making significant investments in developer-facing features such as developer dashboards, API log viewer, API key management, messaging, and much more.

  • Work with cutting-edge open source API Platform tools.
  • Gain significant domain expertise in the E-Commerce and Payments Space.
  • Participate in our R&D journey to build the best in class External API framework

  • Docker / Kubernetes
  • Amazon Web Services
  • Typescript / React


  • 3+ years of professional development experience.
  • A background building high-quality REST and/or GraphQL APIs.
  • Strong technical communication skills.

What will set you up for success
