Digital Payments Solutions Architect
From January 2019 to January 2020, I was the Solutions Architect for Ibotta’s Payments team. This team consisted of 30+ technologists working on the Pay with Ibotta product.
Our mission was to transform the emerging digital payment space by integrating instant cash-back rewards into the Ibotta mobile app. By enabling instant cash-back via debit and credit purchases, we rewarded consumers who might otherwise miss out on premium credit rewards enjoyed by those with excellent credit ratings.
In this role, I was accountable for the architecture and design of all microservices serving the Pay with Ibotta product. I also played a vital role in vendor evaluation, prototyping, and selection. The technologists I led focused heavily on secure coding practices, PCI-compliance, and fraud detection and prevention.
This success of the first iteration of Pay with Ibotta was a key part of the Series D round, which made Ibotta one of Colorado’s only unicorn technology companies, valued at more than $1 billion dollars.
