Why is our Gateway 2.0 team the next step for you?


The team builds and supports products and services to support Worldpay’s Online Payments proposition for small and medium sized businesses, as well as its new elastically scalable ‘Gateway 2.0’ for global eCommerce players.


Both propositions share a modern API and utilise public cloud hosted infrastructure. The SME focused solution has been built using Java, Scala, Spring & Angular. The infrastructure has been built in AWS with an obsession for security and automation using AWS tooling in addition to Puppet and Ansible. The Gateway 2.0 solution is based on a technology stack including the Akka framework and Cassandra, utilising a hybrid infrastructure strategy of public and private cloud services managed by OpenShift.


The Gateway 2.0 team are organised into cross-discipline ‘squads’ according to proposition or supporting services.  Each follows agile practice and pursues a DevOps culture, with continuous integration/ continuous delivery using GitHub, Jenkins and Nexus, and end-to-end ownership.


How will you add value on a day-to-day basis?


You will be the strongest advocate for product quality, be resolute in the pursuit of perfect software and define acceptance criteria for units of work in collaboration with squads. You will be responsible for manual testing to verify independent units of work, as well as engineering adherence to agreed KPIs and NFRs in Production; ensuring stability, scalability and security for all shippable releases.


We’ll want you to manage test and release plans for continuous delivery of product releases. You will also work closely with squads to build a world class engineering pipeline, ensuring that releases are stable, scalable and secure when deployed to live service, as well as actively contribute to the QA engineering ‘Chapters’ (practice areas) within and beyond Gateway 2.0.


What will make you the ideal candidate?


Extensive experience of testing in an Agile environment and a strong understanding of RESTful services (and RPC). You will have experience of working with UNIX platforms and be comfortable using command line tools in the testing process. You will have extensive SQL experience and be able to interpret testing requirements using a variety of artifacts, including stories, wireframes and physical, logical, sequence and ERD diagrams where necessary.


Development experience in Java, Javascript, C#, Python, Ruby or Scala is ideal, as well as experience with Cucumber, JBehave, Selenium, JMeter, Gatling and SoapUI. Exposure to performance and functional testing are advantageous, as well as experience of working in Amazon Web Services (AWS) and knowledge of cryptography and its application in secure inter-application communications and messaging.
