Lead API Writer

Why is Worldpay the next step for you?

Our eCommerce division is booming.  As experts in payments, we operate across a range of exciting verticals globally: Digital Content, Global Retail, Airlines, Regulated Gambling and Travel. Our strategic aim is to drive differentiated value for our customers by increasing their profitability and hence Worldpay’s market share. To achieve this we aim to reach more customers in more markets, in local language and with local payment options.


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

Based from our London or Cambridge offices you will own functional leadership of API content by defining priorities, workloads, strategies and objectives. You’ll manage Worldpay’s Developer Hub content and represent Worldpay at events and conferences as our API content evangelist.

One of your key responsibilities will be to work with the Content Strategy Director to define and own the vision and strategy for our API content and developer tools by building an integrated view of developer needs, user stories, and journeys. And you’ll communicate to developers worldwide through conceptual documentation, detailed developer guides, code samples, API references, and other online materials.

You’ll seek new and innovative technologies to keep the pace with the latest content solution trends and media. As a cross functional leader you will collaborate with the Senior Product team to define developer content needs and convert these into development priorities and clear API content roadmaps. Your content will ensure business stability, growth and enhanced profitability.

What will make you the ideal candidate?

We are looking for a senior specialist in APIs to lead the API writers and work with the Content Strategy Director to define the strategy going forward.

You have got experience in taking the lead and working with Agile development teams. And you will bring great project management experience with an ability to work cross-functionally. You can also read and write API documentation and work with a variety of methodologies for helping and educating our users. And you’ll have experience with source code written in Java, C++, xml and/or JavaScript. Your passion for understanding customer’s needs and delivering world-class content will be crucial to your success!
