Senior Software Engineer – Where GovTech Meets FinTech

$90,000-$150,000 / YEAR

PayIt is a fast-growing GovTech company on a mission to bring governments and people closer together through our award-winning, SaaS platform.

When PayIt started, it was difficult (or just plain impossible) to renew a Driver’s License or pay a court ticket in a mobile, quick, or convenient way. PayIt, along with our award-winning government partners, has made processes like going to the DMV or to a county courthouse, one that you can do right from your smartphone or computer. Since then, PayIt has been building an entire business toolkit for local and state government agencies. Meanwhile, through our secure cloud-based platform, we have reduced friction for the everyday citizen, making digital government services accessible and efficient.
