Technical Product Manager - Platform Scalability

The Platform Engineering group is responsible for enabling engineers to autonomously build and support secure, scalable and reliable applications with high speed and quality through a common technology ecosystem. This ecosystem is required to be available always, so our merchants can process payments, always. On a daily basis our group works on a broad range of topics, ranging from platform reliability to networking, from data centers to big data platforms and from java-based applications to our database platform.

You will be the Technical Product Manager for Adyen’s Platform Scalability team, which is part of the Platform Engineering group. Together with the Technical Team Lead you will manage the products and projects that engineers are working on to build and maintain a state of the art financial technology platform. You will primarily focus on shaping the technical aspects of a product, the product strategy, the priorities of the team, and make sure all teams and stakeholders are aligned. Stakeholders range from infrastructure engineers to software developers, and from product managers from other departments to the engineering board.

What you’ll do

  • Guide a cross-functional team to establish a roadmap that includes feasible and measurable goals.
  • Serve as a leader across Adyen for supporting and driving innovative solutions and decision making.
  • Collaborate closely with engineers, infrastructure teams, internal stakeholders, and partners to identify opportunities, develop effective solutions and deliver them across the finish line.
  • Prioritise among different tasks, making sure that imminent problems are resolved first, but the long-term is also taken care of.

Who you are

  • You leverage strong written and verbal communication skills to engage internal customers and stakeholders.
  • You have a solid understanding of technical fundamentals; know the basics / terminology of the Adyen tech stack (Java & SQL); are comfortable talking with engineers who are experts in these fields
  • You are able to make strategic choices, taking into consideration not only business needs, but especially the technical needs as well as the needs of the team.
  • You are fueled by curiosity, always on the lookout to learn how something works, whether it’s our platform’s performance, application architecture, or the scalability of our database infrastructure.
  • You are proactive and eager to get things started from day one.
  • You promote strong teamwork, healthy collaboration, and inclusivity.
