Why is our Software Development team the next step for you ?

At Worldpay you will develop the technologies that will change how millions of people make payments around the world. With recent changes we've had a real catalyst for innovation internally to challenge traditional banking as well as enhance the security of our payments platforms.

We focus intensively on robustness, security and capacity, but with large-scale test automation and a well-tuned release machine. Change is deployed with no downtime; we upgrade the system whilst it is still running at top speed. That top speed is substantial; at peak time the platform can happily process 800 transactions every second, and on its busiest days over 10 million payments are successfully completed.

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

Worldpay developers are extremely motivated and passionate individuals, eager to create elegant solutions to complex problems and push technology forward. You will join a cross-functional agile team, targeting fast, feature development on our best-of-breed global payments platform.

Provide technical leadership, design and develop solutions as part of a cross-functional team delivering high-quality features for Java based, multi-platform, multi-discipline environments utilising Agile toolsets across the development lifecycle.

You'll take pride in writing high quality software, building, testing and maintaining robust systems and enjoy working across the entire stack, front to back.
We will want you to coach and mentor more junior engineers, act as Scrum Master for the team, and be an evangelist for best practice.

What will make you the ideal candidate ?

You will have a genuine passion for software development and will have extensive commercial experience writing clean code and a knowledge of web application security and agile ways of working (Scrum, Kanban, TDD) and continuous delivery.

Multi-platform technology experience is great and we'll want you to demonstrate strong Java programming skills and experience working with Oracle, Linux & Git. We're using spring but you'll have experience with the same or similar frameworks.
