💳 About the Billing/Growth Team

  • DevRel and Object team: By owning the API curator role and the main APIs, the team can connect internal and external developers’ needs and build a coherent platform. Thanks to its interaction with partners, it also has all the insights needed to build a strong developer ecosystem, owning this domain end to end.

🚀 The growth team is in charge of:

  • Design, implement, and scale event-driven solutions for the company's main models allowing usage-based pricing, reactive event notifications, and triggers

  • Develop robust and scalable flows to support user and customer journeys on the platform (e.g: Shopper buying timelines, merchant should be billed exactly once for the right amount)

  • Put in place monitors, metrics, and end-to-end tests to guarantee API and flow SLOs are up to Gorgias’ standards

  • Improve and enhance the customer journey from landing on the signup page, until renewing their contract every year, taking into account Gorgias’ customers specificities, their business, and their needs as they grow and navigate across our prices

  • Design APIs and models in collaboration with senior ICs to enable more event-driven features putting always focus on the quality of the data and the consistency of actions taken

  • Define a monitoring strategy to prevent and fight fraud, collaborating with a security team when required
