Middleware Design Engineer

Why is our Infrastructure Design & Delivery team the next step for you?

As part of this team, you’ll ensure joined-up infrastructure and security designs and builds, along with associated detailed infrastructure product roadmaps, are in place to support the business and that it drives simplification across technology. You’ll make sure that new solutions development initiatives are aligned and converge to our strategic architecture, ensure quality engineered builds that are resilient, well documented, scalable, secure, and as efficient as possible to deploy and maintain.

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

In this role, you’ll be a hybrid designer and engineer for the overall infrastructure delivery from design to implementation for a major business area – in this case Worldpay Digital Solutions (WDS). You’ll manage infrastructure design and engineering across all Worldpay WDS projects, ensuring timely delivery of high quality artefacts, infrastructure solutions and designs, detailed specifications and engineering builds that meet the requirements of each project. 

You’ll engineer, deliver, automate and document the middleware build and integration for one or more environments containing Springboot, Weblogic, Coherence and JMS and integrating with Oracle IAM and database. You’ll create, validate and approve Worldpay Middleware infrastructure standards and engineering of middleware products as relates to Worldpay’s standards and requirements, taking into account enterprise technology strategy/ architecture, business requirements, industry direction, technology innovation and input from 3rd party delivery partners.

We’ll want you to deliver all solutions with an “automation first” approach that reduces and ultimately removes the need for any manual intervention for builds and deployments – ensuring consistency and speed for all environment delivery and change.

What will make you the ideal candidate?

We’ll want you to demonstrate a proven track record of infrastructure delivery, and extensive experience in the development and maintenance of IT Infrastructure Designs, with applied understanding, at an enterprise level, of middleware products. As you’ll engineer middleware products using the following technologies, we’ll want you to demonstrate a deep understanding of products such as:

- Springboot Tomcat middleware based deployments

- Oracle Weblogic & Fusion Middleware 11g & 12c or equivalent Java Enterprise application servers such as JBoss

- Caching Technologies such as Oracle Coherence or equivalent such as Hazelcast

- Oracle HTTP Server

- Apache Tomcat

- Additionally, integration of middleware designs and products in conjunction with the following technologies: Oracle & SQL Databases, Linux, Networks; Firewalls, DDOS, F5 LTM & GTM, Security tooling; Qualys, Quest, SIEM, Splunk, Operational Tooling; OEM, Ansible, Windows

- Container technologies such as Docker, Openshift or Kubernetes is desirable

You’ll have strong stakeholder management skills, Agile experience from an enterprise environment, and an engineering background. You’ll have experience of working with middleware and web/batch application deployment and strong Linux knowledge. You’ll have deep understanding of the SDLC and automated delivery pipelines, as well as strong knowledge of how to implement infrastructure as code – especially around test driven infrastructure as code. Payments or financial technology industry experience is advantageous.
