Android Developer (Verification Squad)

Sofia · Engineering

As part of our vision to become a truly global fintech company, we are building out local, autonomous, cross-functional teams that can take an aspect of our product and perfect it from concept to execution. In Payments Tribe our goal is to build a global financial ecosystem while turning transactions into interactions. We are passionate about our product and the vision of bringing new payment solutions to small merchants. 

In the Verification squad we are building the verification mechanisms to help us verify the identity of our merchants in the least disturbive way. We have hundreds of thousands of new merchant registrations per month, and it is crucial that we have automatic ways of verifying their identity. To achieve this, we are integrating different third party providers as well as developing our own tools.


  • You’ll shape how our merchants get verified to comply with the law. Yes, we do it smart way and we involve technology heavily thanks to our collaboration with our partners.

  • In the first few weeks, you'll dive into the code and learn how to create clean components in our codebase. You'll use this knowledge to start developing and refining features. You'll learn how we write tests and how we keep performance tip-top.

  • In the first three months, you'll develop major features that impact our merchant base. You'll work closely with product and design departments to build features that are maintainable, usable and beautiful. You'll help us re-think problems we've solved before in a different way as needs evolve.

  • By the end of your first year, you'll have a wealth of knowledge about our complex problem domain, as well as its implications in the interface and in the backend – and how to manage it in a clean way. 


  • You're comfortable with Java/Kotlin and the Android ecosystem (2+ years of development experience).

  • You also know how to get things done on the command line.

  • You know what to test, why to test it, and how to write flexible tests that won't break.

  • You care about user interaction, usability, and of course, making the interface beautiful.

  • You strive for clean code, but also know how to make your "shortcuts" easy to delete in a crunch.

  • You love coding and take the time to reflect on all aspects of your implementation, be it the frameworks, languages or processes.

  • You're not afraid to use Google or ask for help when something is beyond your grasp.

  • Your precise communication skills make working in a distributed team effective and efficient.

  • Technology excites you and you strive to learn something new on a daily basis!

  • You are open-minded and ready to explore 3rd party SDKs, solutions, benchmarking, integrate and test (we want only the best for our customers).

  • iOS knowledge would be highly desirable but not mandatory.


  • You'll have the opportunity to make an impact as we work in flat hierarchies.

  • You'll have the space to drive your career here and take ownership of projects.

  • You’ll have the chance to work on a diverse and international team.

  • You'll be able to attend global offsites/hackathons/team events.

  • You'll have competitive compensation and education budget.

  • Office relaxation activities such as yoga and massages.

  • 23 days paid vacation + 1 accumulative day for each year of employment at SumUp.

  • Additional health insurance.
