We’re building a simple, intuitive system on top of Europe’s broken payments infrastructure. Thousands of merchants already rely on us to collect millions of pounds every day.
As an engineering team working in payments, we have to work differently:
At the same time, our business is growing at over 700% a year. We’re ambitious, and we constantly experiment and iterate to drive that growth:
Payments is a scale business with huge returns to great engineering. We have a culture where you can do work that you’re proud of every day.
We’re building a huge company, so we invest time in building things well. We keep our technical debt low by regularly refactoring and improving our architecture. We know how important it is to be able to move fast in the future as well as right now.
Despite the scale of our work, we’re a small and friendly team with strong shared values. We get on well and enjoy spending time together, whether working in the office, chatting over lunch or out for drinks after work. We’re passionate about learning, and we all care deeply about the quality of what we build. We regularly run internal tech talks given by both GoCardless employees and industry experts, and we pay for courses & books.
Many of our team are active members of the wider tech community. We open source whatever we can, as we did with Hutch and Statesman, and we regularly host events and meetups in our offices. We have a conference budget for everyone on the team and can help with speaker coaching if you’re interested.
We have to stay nimble while delivering mission-critical code. To do so we constantly prioritise keeping both our stack and our codebase lean.
We deploy many times a day, supported by a test suite we trust and a culture of code review.
We’re looking for backend software engineers to join our growing team. We’d particularly love you to apply if:
In your application, please include your CV and a link to your GitHub, as well as telling us about an interesting technical project or problem that you’ve recently worked on.
