This is Adyen
Adyen provides payments, data, and financial products in a single solution for customers like Facebook, Uber, H&M, and Microsoft - making us the financial technology platform of choice. At Adyen, everything we do is engineered for ambition.
For our teams, we create an environment with opportunities for our people to succeed, backed by the culture and support to ensure they are enabled to truly own their careers.

Java Software Engineer
Since building our platform from scratch, our engineers have been continuously reshaping the payments landscape. Due to our rapid growth, we design everything with scalability in mind. We solve real problems for our merchants, creating new functionalities and building impactful solutions to help them grow.
As an engineer, you will be responsible for the full development cycle from designing your software to testing and ensuring everything works as expected after deployment in a weekly release. You will work with one of the biggest PostgreSQL databases out there, while writing your own queries and ensuring they fit within our low-latency API landscape.
To maintain our competitive edge as we scale, we organise our work around goal-oriented groups, called streams. Streams are co-led by developers, and also include product and commercial specialists. This setup means you’re able to provide input on how our products and services are built, and also receive immediate feedback on the business impact of your work. Joining the Sydney office means you will be part of our APAC stream where one of the key responsibilities is to provide an easy way for merchants to integrate the most relevant, high-performing, and preferred payment methods to their customers in this region.
What you can expect
- You’ll be an integral contributor to a multi-threaded, highly performing, and complex software system.
- You’ll use your critical mindset by exploring the context and knowing the ‘why.’ Your ideas will be heard right from the start!
- You’ll be in charge of the model, architecture, coding, testing, security, and release of your project and collaborative with different teams to ensure the successful delivery of them
We’re looking for people who can see the bigger picture and work towards it from inception to implementation. If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.
