In Sofia’s Payments Tribe, our goal is to build a global financial ecosystem while turning transactions into interactions.
We started with mPOS 7 years ago and now our portfolio includes invoicing, P2P, debit card, ecommerce and other card not present solutions that are still in the oven.
The payout platform is a key part of our proprietary payments processing platform. The main requirements for its performance and also the main challenges for its team are speed, accuracy and consistency. It is responsible for processing global SumUp payouts for millions of customers to achieve fast, cost efficient, accurate and consistent incoming and outgoing payouts to various, but not limited to in-house developed settlement instruments.
We are currently scaling and re-writing it in Kotlin/Spring Boot. You would have the opportunity to co-design the new architecture and build the new platform and a new team to work on it. At SumUp teams are empowered to bring their ideas to life through autonomy and no-blame culture. We believe in building projects around motivated individuals, giving them the environment and support they need, and trusting them to get the job done.
Our teams are local and cross-functional; they can take an aspect of our product and perfect it from concept to execution.
