We took an unobvious approach to starting a payments company, building a platform from scratch. Today, we're the payments platform of choice for the world's brightest companies. Speed is the foundation of our company. We think fast. We work fast. We launch fast. We are honest, direct, and try to have some fun too. We're creating our own path, with a global team driving sustainable growth. To maintain our momentum, we need people to join us in finding new ways of solving our unique challenges - people like you.
Product Manager Infrastructure
Adyen's payments platform and the Infrastructure team are growing at a fast pace. On a daily basis we ask ourselves: how do you maintain a payments platform which needs to process millions of transactions each day? How do you make sure that this platform is not only ready for today's volumes, but also ready for tomorrow's?
The Infrastructure team is responsible for exactly that; building out and maintaining the infrastructure which hosts our payments platform. An infrastructure which is required to be up 24/7, so merchants can always proces payments. On a daily basis the Infrastructure team works on a broad range of topics: from platform reliability to networking, and from data centers to big data platforms.
As Product Manager Infrastructure you will work with your technical counterparts on building and maintaining the infrastructure behind the state-of-the-art payments platform. You will primarily focus on managing large projects, prioritizing among different tasks, and making sure all teams and stakeholders are aligned. Stakeholders range from infrastructure engineers to software developers, and from product managers from other departments to the management team.
What you'll do
Coordinate across teams to move complex, technical projects forward, from their inception to launch.
Prioritize among different tasks, making sure that imminent problems are resolved first, but the long-term is also taken care of.
Establish ambitious but feasible goals together with the team and make sure they're being achieved.
Work with your technical counterparts to bring our internal infrastructure knowledge hub to the next level.
Make sure new engineers are quickly brought up-to-speed when joining the Infrastructure team.
Iterate on the organisation if required
Who you are
You are fueled by curiosity, always on the lookout to learn something new, whether it's payments, network topology, or data center deployment.
You love working together with engineers and enjoy helping them move their projects forward. You take pride in putting your team first, and you value the team over your own ego.
You don't sit around and wait until things happen by themselves. You go out there, from day 1, to get things done (even if that means giving the CEO a call in your first week).
You are eager to ensure that we do not waste time reinventing the wheel, even across teams.
You have a demonstrated passion for technology, either in a previous role, in your education, or in some sort of side gig.
Experience as a product- or project manager in an innovative tech company is a plus.
And ultimately, excellent written and verbal English communication skills are required, of course.
