Why is our Gateway 2.0 tribe the next step for you?

Our mission is to be the fastest, quality delivery machine centred on delivering Worldpay's next generation Payment Gateway for global E-commerce players; elastically scalable, fault tolerant solution. It utilises Worldpay's unrivalled data to deliver superior payments outcomes and allows rapid, safe change by decoupling merchants from payment processing with our next generation Hypermedia API. Our platform is based on a polyglot technology stack, delivered as microservices, using Java/Spring Boot, Scala/Play/Akka, Cassandra/RDS. The infrastructure operates in a hybrid cloud mode across AWS and on-premise using Terraform, Ansible, OpenShift, Kubernetes.

Our squads are product-aligned with end-to-end ownership of product features. They are cross-discipline encompassing design, development, quality assurance and cloud infrastructure expertise. Our squads embrace DevOps culture and Continuous Delivery.

How will you add value on a day-to-day basis?

In this role, you'll design and develop solutions as part of a squad in line with; product specifications and drivers of business value, Worldpay architectural and design principles, test driven development, team standards and practices eg code quality, agile ways of working, technical debt control.

You'll be accountable for high quality engineering pipelines, continuous delivery of shippable software, and be part of an on-call rota for investigation and resolution of production system problems. You'll actively contribute to the engineering 'Chapter' (practice areas) within the Gateway 2 Tribe and mentor more junior engineers.

What will make you the ideal candidate?

You'll demonstrate passion and enthusiasm for developing in a test driven manner; from acceptance testing, to unit and integration testing. You'll have Java or Scala experience, continuous delivery expertise, and experience working in Agile DevOps environments. You'll be an advocate of clean code and INVEST principles, with good knowledge of software architecture and industry design patterns.

Multi-platform technology experience is great, ideally Java, Scala, JavaScript & SQL; we believe in polyglot approaches, so you'll be able to develop code in two or more of these languages. The frameworks we use are Spring, Play and Akka, so you'll have experience with one of these, as well as RESTful API design experience. It's also advantageous if you have prior experience with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Kubernetes, Docker, Terraform or Ansible.
