We unlock revenue by tailoring our payment flow to the volatile behavior of issuers, at scale. This includes implementing features such as: retrying of rejected payments, routing to different available connections, and card validations with dynamic amounts. You will work on a mission-critical product that requires plenty of creative thinking on a regular basis.

We are responsible for building solutions that provide a very specialized set of signals to our real-time payment optimization products, most notably for fraud detection.
