Mastercard Payment Gateway Services is a payment service provider. We offer merchants around the world an omni-channel payment gateway with integrated services (e.g. fraud risk management, alternative payment methods, currency conversion) while reducing their exposure to pain (chargebacks, PCI-DSS compliance etc.).

Using proven modern technologies we deliver challenging and rewarding projects in an open, collaborative environment where each solution demands high-availability, security, and scalability. We pride ourselves on working hard to deliver projects on time, to a high standard, and doing so without an overtime culture.

For great engineers we offer generous rewards and a clear career progression. This is a fast-paced and dynamic team where individual projects are short and varied - production systems are updated regularly. Dedicated operations and support teams allow you to concentrate on getting the job done.

Benefits of our modern air-conditioned office include powerful dual screen workstations and dedicated virtualization and automated test servers, while the facilities include showers, excellent public transport links, covered bike parking and a subsidized canteen.

You work effectively under your own direction, from ideation to deployment - but as a senior engineer you are also comfortable mentoring others and working closely with your Scrum team, as well as with other teams around the globe.

What does success look like?

• A five nines platform that handles hundreds of concurrent transactions, year in year out
