Job Title

Payment Gateway Services - EdinburghLead Engineer (Consultant, Software Engineering)

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.).

With offices across the US, in Europe, India and Australia, the sun never sets on the gateway development team. Some out of hours work is inevitable, but overall we avoid a culture of overtime.

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.

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.

Overview

As part of a co-located Scrum agile team of 4-6 engineers, you will develop, test and deliver all software relating to our transaction engines, reporting tools and internal support systems.

As one of the most senior engineers we depend on your ability to take the lead – whether that’s driving through a time-critical feature, managing up a scope compromise, or mentoring the rest of the team.

You have great fundamental engineering skills across multiple technologies and approaches. You understand how to operate in a large corporate environment with many silos and sometimes contradictory incentives or requirements.

You are an advocate for technical and process improvement who always leaves things better than you found them.

Key Responsibilities

  • Pioneer and own technical expertise that spans all areas of the payment gateway.

  • In the context of our agile methodology, help teams agree and meet delivery commitments.

  • Provision of critical insight on designs and code reviews at a low level of technical detail.

  • Enable rapid incremental delivery by influencing the phased adoption of best practice integration and deployment techniques.

Technology

Ideally, you are already a master of:

  • Java 8 / Spring / Mockito / Cucumber

  • RESTful web services, JSON, distributed systems architecture

  • Security concerns such as OWASP Top 10 and PCI DSS

  • APACS, ISO 8583, EMV or other card payment standards

  • Postgres / Elastic / Cassandra

  • Git, BitBucket / Stash and a CI server (Jenkins)

  • Configuration management tools (Puppet / Chef) and a Linux OS (RHEL or Oracle)

All About You

  • Immediately effective, with proven experience providing technical leadership in a corporate environment.

  • Able to navigate complex change management systems, review boards, and produce a variety of documentation as required.

  • Highly skilled in Java web service development – especially microservice architecture, automated testing and deployment.

  • May have a Computer Science or related degree or be qualified by experience.

  • Demonstrable commitment to professional development.
