As a Senior Software Engineer in the API Foundations team, you will be working with us to improve our API landscape further, making it even easier for developers to integrate Mollie, and for internal teams to expose their APIs to the rest of the world.
You will work on highly scalable solutions that process hundreds of thousands of API requests daily. Code quality and system scalability are extremely important. Helping us build scalable systems by thinking ahead will be critical to your work.
Our engineering workflow
'Ship early, ship often' is our philosophy.
We like to break up big tasks into smaller ones, deploying gradual product iterations and improvements numerous times every day.
We uphold code quality through thorough and cooperative peer reviews, CI/CD build pipelines and gradual feature roll-outs. In other words, we do everything to make sure you feel comfortable pushing your changes to production on a daily basis.
We come from a monolithic background, with our core systems being written mostly in PHP. As our company started to scale up rapidly, we scaled our infrastructure along with it by employing service-oriented architecture, and queueing systems.
