Payments Engineering team owns global payments processing across all of Wayfair’s markets and brands

Role overview

Wayfair is moving the world so that anyone can live in a home they love – a journey enabled by more than 3000 Wayfair engineers. Payments Engineering team owns global payments processing across all of Wayfair’s markets and brands, processing more than $9B revenue in 2019 and with a sustained >34% YoY growth. 

The team’s mission is to provide a reliable, secure & scalable platform that enables Wayfair to provide the widest range of payment options to our customers through a world-class frictionless experience.

We are building an autonomous cross-functional team of polyglot software engineers, security engineers, data engineers, data analysts, and product managers. Our goal is to move fast, deliver value iteratively while ensuring the stability & correctness of our mission-critical payments systems.

We are building truly global distributed systems with very challenging consistency requirements implemented as a set of well-bounded micro-services that communicate over low-latency synchronous and asynchronous APIs. Intrigued? Read on and apply.

What you’ll do:

  • As a senior member of one of the Payments team, you will be working in a highly collaborative environment interacting closely with other software engineers & product managers to identify opportunities and implement solutions.
  • You will develop new systems but also relentlessly refactor existing systems to make them more robust, maintainable, and scalable. You will do so in an iterative approach with multiple daily releases through canary deployments, feature toggles and other techniques to ensure agile delivery
  • You will contribute to the team’s technical decisions through discussions & writing technical documents such as RFCs & ADRs
  • You will own the health of our production systems: you develop it, you build it and you run it. Our systems are deployed as Docker containers to Kubernetes clusters monitored by DataDog.
  • You will mentor other engineers to become proficient developers using best software development practices and processes.

What you bring to the table:

  • Experience in designing software systems based on Java, additional experience with at least one other programming language from a different paradigm (e.g. scripting or functional) is a bonus
  • Understanding of resilience patterns and what it takes to build scalable systems in microservice architectures
  • Experience implementing both asynchronous message-based communication and synchronous ones such as RESTful APIs
  • Experience with large-scale distributed storage and database systems (SQL or NoSQL, e.g. MySQL, Cassandra)
  • Knowledge of CI/CD processes for build and deployment of various applications
  • Great communication skills and the ability to support technical decision making with the team
  • Willingness to learn new technologies or languages 

Nice to have experience with:

  • e-commerce or payments
  • cloud providers like AWS or GCP
  • containers (e.g. Docker) & container schedulers (e.g. Kubernetes)
  • understanding of security and cryptography
  • Big Data such as stream-based processing, data warehousing & modeling and operating OLAP engines
  • building clients for the web in React, for Android in Kotlin and/or for iOS in Swift

Location

Berlin is the capital and the largest city in Germany and well-known for its amazing festivals, exciting nightlife and a high quality of living. With a population of 3.7 million it is only second to London in the Europe Union, even with one-third of the city's area being composed of forests, parks, gardens, rivers, canals and lakes. Berlin is a city with a deep history, Bismarck, Marx, Einstein, JFK and Bowie, they’ve all shaped – and been shaped by – Berlin.

Often referred to as Europe's newest start-up capital, a new start-up is founded every 20 minutes. The startup industry is set to produce 100,000 new jobs by 2020.

It's no secret that Berlin is cheaper than many of its European counterparts. Office overheads and the price of living are cheaper, which makes it a very attractive place for tech entrepreneurs. Home to HelloFresh, Delivery Hero, and Soundcloud we expect many more household names to be coming out of Berlin in the next few years.

Did you know...

  • The average salary for a Software Engineer in Berlin is €58,765 per year
  • Berlin is the second most populous city in the EU
  • 250+
