We want an engineering genius. A technical wonderkid. A code geek. We want someone who wants to build advanced and technically sophisticated products to unify the off-and-online experience of payments and banking in general. It’s a difficult job, but you mustn’t be afraid.

The work will take you through all sorts of experiences involving creating system infrastructures, API development, and anything that will make our customers’ and merchants’ payment experience more secure and more efficient.

Most importantly, we want you to be passionate about what you do. We want you to be flexible enough to learn fast and work through details, but also have great resolve in solving difficult problems and being ultra reliable. But above everything we want you to build products with us, as a team of great technical talent who share experiences, and do great work together.

So, if you’re not afraid of these huge challenges, you’re the person we’re looking for, and we’ll see you at Pace very soon!
