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.

Our engineers are reshaping the payments landscape. We’re looking for more talented problem solvers to help us address a unique set of challenges.


Java Engineer in Data

As a Java engineer in Data, you will be building and training the brain behind the Adyen platform, with a focus on scaling access to the intelligence and capabilities businesses need to realize their biggest ambitions. 

Among our teams, you might join:


We help our merchants make sense of their payments by providing a data driven full service view of what's happening with their payments. This includes crunching data on our big data platform and being able to expose meaningful indicators through interactive dashboards around the payment lifecycle, chargebacks, shopper behaviors etc. We want to take this to the next level by providing machine learning powered recommendations to merchants on optimising their businesses. We regularly collaborate with Adyen’s biggest merchants to learn and iterate.


We build the risk engine to mitigate seller fraud and create features to make fraud investigation easier for risk analysts. We are constantly improving the efficiency of Score by adding and customizing new risk checks, processing account behavior signals, and finding links among platform users. You will work on migrating relevant data from different sources, creating APIs for various functionalities, optimizing queries, minimizing latency, keeping the data secure and the system highly scalable.

Revenue Accelerate

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. Together we get a lot of exposure to Ayden's top merchants (i.e. Google, Microsoft, Netflix) and frequently collaborate directly with some of their product teams. 

Who you are:

  • You have experience with Core Java, web services, REST APIs and SQL/PostgreSQL
  • You like to challenge the status quo and ask the ‘why’ question
  • You enjoy working in a cross-functional team with roles like Data Science, Frontend, and Product
  • You have a sharp eye for detail, and know how to balance precision with pragmatism
  • You love learning new things and can make good choices based on thorough research
  • You value involving other people to hear different perspectives


Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion commitments

Our unobvious approach is a product of our diverse perspectives. This diversity of backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives is essential in helping us maintain our momentum. Our business and technical challenges are unique, we need as many different voices as possible to join us in solving them - voices like yours. So no matter where you’re from, who you love, or what you believe in, we welcome you to be your true self at Adyen. 

Studies show that women and members of underrepresented communities apply for jobs only if they meet 100% of the qualifications. Even if you don’t meet 100% of the criteria then Adyen encourages you to reconsider and apply. We look forward to your application.

The Adyen Formula

How we work together is guided by the Adyen Formula. These eight principles are not constant – but constantly evolving to keep pace with our merchants, our business and the growth of the team.
