Our talented people empower us, and we believe in being part of a team that is open, collaborative, entrepreneurial, passionate and above all fun.

About the team

We are the team building Access Worldpay - a modern suite of payments APIs for global businesses that offer superior quality of service and rapid product development

Access Worldpay will be the 'single way' in for the world's largest payment services provider

We use cloud-based microservices, an obsession with quality and DevOps techniques

.... alongside developer centricity, and a product approach to quality of service

What you will be doing

You will ensure that Access Worldpay, can achieve a superior quality of service (reliability, performance, operability) - across a distributed architecture and organization - while meeting high standards of security and compliance - at a competitive cost of ownership (investment and transaction cost)

You will help us make the market - and our customers/prospects - aware of this advantage

You will do this through thought leadership, curiosity and insight generation, customer centricity, strong communication, collaboration and influencing

Specifically you will:

  • Own the vision for Access Worldpay Quality of service, and align teams to this vision
  • Help set with coherent service level objectives and ensure we can measure current performance at any time
  • Use Post-incident reviews problem analysis and fault analysis to drive insights on improvement opportunities in line with a positive, constructive, and no-blame culture
  • Support (non-functional) requirements analysis and rationalisation through dialogue with multi-domain subject matter experts (Security, Change management, Technical service owner(s), Engineering leads...), internal and external research and analysis
  • Own our Quality of Service roadmap, detailing incremental, progressive objectives or capabilities appropriate for specific product/service types or lifecycle stages
  • Coach teams to work user stories and acceptance criteria that meet INVEST principles
  • Support product-engineering teams (and stakeholders) understand how reusable components, automation of visualisation, and new techniques such as chaos engineering can meet specific requirements for maximum efficiency
  • Represent the product externally (customers, developers, conferences...), building content to support sales and marketing colleagues cut through with customers and prospects

What you bring:

•Passion for high performance and high availability technology and deep experience in building it at scale (as engineer, architect and/or product manager)

•Strong interest, curiosity, and domain knowledge in quality of service (availability, performance, capacity, operability, security, compliance and cost) and experience of the techniques, approaches and potential trade-offs involved

•Agile mindset - the ability to jump between vision, reality, insight, learning and incremental / iterative next steps along with a strong focus on value and results

•Strong inter-personal skills and the ability to work cross-functionally and across organizational boundaries

•Desire to grow further (e.g. in strategic thinking, financial thinking, customer-facing touchpoints and sales situations)

Added bonus if you have:
  • Experience in financial services especially PCI-certified environments such as payments or e-Commerce
  • Team leadership experience (and especially lean-agile leadership)
  • Good experience providing governance and validating compliance of internal controls, across a range of technologies and business practices

What we offer you

•An opportunity to help build the future of payments at a global scale

•A team environment that prizes aligned autonomy, learning and innovation - as well as results delivery

• Competitive salary and benefits
