Job Description

This is Adyen

Adyen is the payments platform of choice for the world's leading companies, delivering frictionless payments across online, mobile, and in-store channels. Our team members are motivated individuals from different cultures that help each other do remarkable things every day and across time zones. We face unique technical challenges at scale and we solve those as a team. And together, we deliver innovative and ethical solutions that transform the way the world pays. We took an unobvious approach to starting a payments company, building a platform from scratch. Now, Adyen serves the world's brightest companies like Ebay, Etsy, Uber, Netflix, GoFundMe and Spotify.


Engineering Manager, Development, Global Tax

Next to our payments offering Adyen is building an entire suite of embedded financial services for platforms such as marketplaces, SaaS platforms, on-demand platforms or crowdfunding platforms. This is the focus area of our Chicago tech hub!

We are starting a new engineering team in Chicago focused on building a scalable global tax solution for our customers. For this team we are looking for an Engineering Manager.

As engineering manager of the Global Tax team you will be working in collaboration with different teams working from our Chicago and Amsterdam offices.


What you will be doing

  • Articulate complex technical concepts in front of different stakeholders in the business.
  • Hire, manage and coach a team of java back-end developers located in Chicago.
  • Work together with the product team to define engineering objectives for Adyen's global tax offering.
  • Continuously think about the scalability and reliability of our tax solution as our customer base grows.
  • Work in close collaboration with different teams across countries and timezones to bring projects over the finish line.
  • Maintain an inclusive team culture focused on autonomy, ownership, collaboration, communication, and impact.
  • Join the weekly meeting with all Team Leads and Staff Engineers in the platforms and financial services area around the globe.

Who you are

  • An open-minded, but critical thinker who feels comfortable talking to stakeholders and challenging their ideas in a constructive way.
  • Someone who can inspire and coach a team to increase confidence, challenge the status quo and be globally connected.
  • Someone who can clearly communicate about technical concepts to non-developers.
  • Experienced in leading technical projects in a fast paced environment.
  • Balancing ‘launch fast and iterate’ in a way where momentum does not get in the way of tying up loose ends.

Our business and technical challenges are unique, we need as many different voices as possible to join us in solving them - voices like yours.
