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.


Team Lead, Development 

As a team lead of the North America Payments team you will be working close to the core of the payment’s platform, but also in contact with the business. This team is part of the Payments Engine solution area and works in collaboration with the Acquiring team and other Payments teams in APAC, EMEA and LATAM. The main focus is supporting the North America region growth regarding local payment methods and global schemes customizations.


What you will be doing

  • Managing, developing and coaching a team of 8-12 java back-end developers located in Chicago, San Francisco and remotely.
  • Continuously thinking about the scalability and reliability of the payment flow as the volume grows.
  • Implementing new integrations to payment methods important in the region in the areas that Adyen decides to explore commercially.
  • Working in close collaboration with Product and Partnerships on managing compliance releases of local schemes.
  • Maintaining an inclusive team culture focused on autonomy, ownership, collaboration, communication, and impact.
  • Joining the weekly meeting with all Team Leads and Staff Engineers in the Payments Engine around the globe.


Who you are

  • Someone who can clearly communicate about technical concepts to non-developers.
  • 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.
  • Balancing ‘launch fast and iterate’ in a way where momentum does not get in the way of tying up loose ends.


Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion commitments 

Our unobvious approach is a product of our diverse perspectives. This diversity of backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives is essential in helping us maintain our momentum. Our business and technical challenges are unique, we need as many different voices as possible to join us in solving them - voices like yours. So no matter where you’re from, who you love, or what you believe in, we welcome you to be your true self at Adyen.
