What you'll do 

  • Design features on Adyen’s build systems in a scalable and extensible way.
  • Propose, design, coordinate, implement, and support solutions around building our software products.
  • Collaborate with other engineering and infrastructure teams to come up with the best solutions for the problems at hand.
  • Be a positive influence in growing the team technically.

Who you are

  • Able to reason about, optimize and scale build tooling.
  • You have excellent communication skills and can articulate complex technical concepts to different stakeholders.
  • Focused on getting the solutions into production.
  • Motivated, responsible, and a reliable team player, a technical leader with experience owning projects involving multiple engineers.
  • Eager to enable fellow developers to work efficiently and autonomously.
  • Passionate about coding clean, reliable, and understandable software solutions.

Your skills

  • Good knowledge in two programming languages such as Java, Python, C++, Rust, JavaScript/TypeScript.

  • Knowledgeable about build system integration with code quality frameworks such as JUnit, SpotBugs, CheckStyle, and SonarQube.
  • Good understanding of Software Delivery Lifecycle and Development Workflows.
  • Comfortable working with containers and Kubernetes.
  • Proven track record of working across teams, going beyond the immediate scope when necessary to solve complex problems.
