Job Description

Senior Backend Developer- Engineering (SSE)

Location: Bangalore

About Us

MishiPay ( was founded in 2015 by Mustafa Khanwala (/in) and Tanvi Bhardwaj (/in), bringing the best of the online checkout experience to physical stores.

We do this with our Scan, Pay and Go experience. Using our native apps on Android or iOS, or our web app available on Chrome or Safari, customers scan the products they wish to buy in store using their own phone and pay instantly. This eradicates the need to wait in line or touch store hardware. The current Covid-19 crisis has given us another mission to keep retail staff safe whilst giving shoppers the confidence to return to High Streets and malls.

As the world’s leading Scan and Go provider as a third-party application into retailers’ stores, we work with some of the world’s largest retailers including names like MUJI, Eroski, Dufry, Spar, Londis, Decathlon, and many others. The work is challenging, hard and long and requires you to be on top of your game but if the adventure and journey excites you then this is the place for you.
