The IPP department

Our Amsterdam based development team consists of highly skilled C++/Kotlin developers working primarily on our Payment Terminal solution. Within the team, there is a lot of freedom and ambition to develop cool and unique features on the device. We also use in-house built robots to test the Terminal devices, allowing automated testing. In order to upscale innovative ideas, we are looking for more talent to further improve the most advanced and robust platform in the payment industry.

There will be a number of skilled mentors available, guiding you through this process.

  • Contribute to various payment related projects
  • Learn tons of different aspects of coding and IPP development
  • Work together, review code and be open to feedback, because winning is more important than ego
  • Implement and test new functionality to the platform, where we launch fast and iterate

Who you are

  • Motivated enthusiastic team player, we don’t hide behind emails
  • Curious about coding
  • Proactively collaborate and involve other teams/departments
  • Willingness to learn and improve, open to new ideas
  • Self starter, you create your own path and won’t be slowed down by “stewards”
  • Able to communicate fluent in English
  • Familiar (affinity) with coding in at least one programming language

Who you will be

  • A developer able to build and design C/C++/Kotlin code for our device payment applications
