Our engineers are responsible for the full development cycle, from designing software to testing and deploying it in a weekly release.

The main focus will be on backend development, our platform is developed in Java

To maintain our competitive edge as we scale, we organize our work around goal-oriented groups, called streams. Streams are co-led by developers, and also include product and commercial specialists. This setup means you’re able to provide input on how our products and services are built, and also receive immediate feedback on the business impact of your work.

  • You will need to pass a technical test in Java as a part of interview process;
  • You will use Java as your main programming language;
  • You will collaborate with and learn from very skilled, experienced engineers, product and commercial specialists;
  • You will be an integral contributor to a multi-threaded, highly performing, and complex software system;
  • You will use your critical mindset by exploring the context and knowing the ‘why.’ Your opinion will matter right from the start!
  • You will be in charge of the model, architecture, coding, testing, security, and release of your projects.

Who you are

  • You have or are about to obtain a degree in Computer Science, Engineering or equivalent;
  • 0-2 years working experience;
  • You like working together in a team, solving real world problems together;
  • You have the ambition to become one of Adyen’s leaders.

We’re looking for people who can see the bigger picture and work towards it from inception to implementation. If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.
