(Senior) Backend Engineers (Elixir) - no Elixir experience required

Sofia, Bulgaria · Engineering

With SumUp, small merchants around the world can accept payments and have access to various important services such as invoicing, e-shops, digital banking. While we take care of all this, they focus on doing what they love. Аnd this is incredibly rewarding.

Sofia is the home of the Payments Tribe - it’s where the magic behind the act of payment happens. 


In the Acquiring Squad, a key part of the Payments Tribe, we are looking for experienced engineers who want to learn and reap the benefits of Elixir. The squad is building a card payment processing platform that comprises a few applications/micro-services, each with its own separate responsibilities.


Day-to-day challenges would be low latency, high availability, scalability, fault-tolerance. 

At SumUp we are generalists and switching between technologies is welcome. You could have experience in any programming language and make a successful transition to Elixir, as long as you truly want it.

If it sounds like your thing, give us a shout!
