At GoCardless we believe bank payments are the best way to pay and get paid. We also believe that bank account data is a powerful tool to make better, faster decisions. We’re making it easy to use both- for businesses everywhere.
GoCardless is used for domestic and international payments by 75,000+ organisations and counting, processing more than $30 billion across 30 countries. We’re an award-winning London based fintech, with additional offices in Riga, Paris and Melbourne.
As a Software Development Engineer at GoCardless, you’ll be integral to our newly formed Operational Interfaces team working to streamline secure tooling for Merchant Operations.
You’ll collaborate closely with Customer Support and other teams to innovate, maintain, and optimise our operational tools, marking a key role in operational efficiency for our merchants and internal users while ensuring robust security for the world’s aspiring bank payments network.
We endeavour to build simple, reliable, and secure tooling and believe in using the most suitable technologies for each task.

Familiarity with services and technologies such as Redis, RabbitMQ, Kafka, Cassandra, S3, SQL, NoSQL, Docker, and Kubernetes are a plus, however proficiency in every technology is not a prerequisite. If you’re unsure, please apply.
