Senior Software Engineer at Checkout.com:

We are a team responsible for maintaining and evolving a Payment Orchestration Platform called ProcessOut. This platform was acquired by Checkout.com in March 2020 and is already powering many large, famous brands like Glovo, NordVPN, and Bolt (with many more that we can't name, and even more to come).

We are a self-sufficient team that operates in a fully agile way. We are supported by our very own Product and DevOps teams, and we build and evolve our product together.

When it comes to technical stack, we are hosted in AWS, use EKS and our primary development language is Go. As we always strive to use the best tool for the job, we use a combination of Redis, DynamoDB, and Postgres for persistence layer, and REST, gRPC, and queues for communication.

We are experiencing constant growth in the number of handled transactions, new clients, and integrations. That's why we pay very close attention to the elegant design and scalability of the platform. We are looking for dedicated engineers who would like to join us on our journey.
