About the project & the team
Payment Gateway is the main money flow channel for Schibsted newspapers digital subscriptions, handling more than 1,000,000 payments monthly, providing Payment API for nearly all systems within the Schibsted ecosystem. Using microservice architecture, we integrate our clients with Payment Service Providers enabling them to charge users with credit cards, mobile phones, invoices.
Integration with Payment Service Provider APIs is not an easy task. Especially if you would like to handle a bunch of possible corner cases like connectivity errors, consistency problems, and different specific API flaws. You must always challenge your solution asking “What happens if…”.
We would like to refresh our platform’s infrastructure to reduce its complexity and improve maintainability. We expect you to prepare the roadmap and lead the improvement process.
Our team is a group of experienced engineers willing to make the Payment Service Provider integration as easy as possible, providing easy to consume API, support, and know-how for our clients.
