About the team - Gateway
The Gateway is the core of the journey for all merchants processing through Checkout.com. As the customer-facing component of the payment processing flow, downtime, errors, and delays in processing directly translate into lost revenue for our merchants. Because of this, performance, reliability, scalability, and visibility are the development principles that the team lives by. The Gateway team is responsible for providing merchants with a unified API for processing payments, enabling card tokenization, smart routing to acquirers, productizing acquiring functionality, and much more.

About the role
A leadership mentality is required as you will own the entire payment processing component of the Gateway flow as well as leading a team of both engineers and engineering managers. The ideal candidate is passionate and spirited, customer focused, lives and breathes Agile, and firmly believes in creating clean, testable code.
