Get to know us:


We are currently hiring Full-stack Software Engineers for our Payments Integrations team.

This team is responsible for building and maintaining software integrations with payment providers, enabling our retailers to provide the best possible shopping and checkout experience to their customers. We focus particularly on frontend integrations, making it easier to embed payment functionality in our Web and mobile platforms. We have to ensure our component is performant and highly available, otherwise our clients would lose money from potential shoppers! Because of that we invest heavily in accurate tests and monitoring of application’s health. We also keep up with technology by regularly upgrading Java and frameworks we depend on. 

We work in Kanban, putting much importance on continuous improvement and knowledge sharing. From time to time we organise hackathons to explore some interesting ideas or get together for a presentation about some technical topic prepared by one of our team members.

Our name derives from the product we had been working on previously, which was the Fraud Detection system in OSP.
