  • You have vast experience with event-streaming platforms such as Kafka for partitioning huge amounts of data.

  • You’re an expert at JVM-based languages. You have vast experience with a microservices architecture, event-driven design, and RESTful APIs.

  • You have experience working with AWS or similar as well as orchestration software such as Kubernetes.

Why you should join SumUp

  • We’re a truly global team of 2000+ people from 60+ countries, spread across 3 continents.

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

  • You'll attend global offsites and regular team events.
