In-person payments (C++/Kotlin) Traineeship


This is Adyen

Adyen is the payments platform of choice for the world's leading companies, delivering frictionless payments across online, mobile, and in-store channels. Our team members are motivated individuals that help each other do remarkable things every day. We face unique technical challenges at scale and we solve those as a team. And together, we deliver innovative and ethical solutions that transform the way the world pays.

We took an unobvious approach to starting a payments company, building a platform from scratch. Now, Adyen serves the world's brightest companies like Facebook, Uber, L'Oreal, Casper, Bonobos, and Spotify.

The IPP department

Our Amsterdam based development team consists of highly skilled C++/Kotlin developers working primarily on our Payment Terminal solution. Within the team, there is a lot of freedom and ambition to develop cool and unique features on the device. We also use in-house built robots to test the Terminal devices, allowing automated testing. In order to upscale innovative ideas, we are looking for more talent to further improve the most advanced and robust platform in the payment industry.

Traineeship (C++ / Kotlin)

At Adyen, we're always looking for the unobvious. That is why we want to invest in early code enthusiasts, who just need an upgrade in their skillset. We will train you to become a full-fledged programmer (C++/Kotlin) and develop on cool devices. During the Adyen Academy, you will become a member of multiple teams within the department, so you will learn various aspects of our solution. There will be a number of skilled mentors available, guiding you through this process.
