Your missions

The last two decades have seen an explosion in new payment services - from digital wallets, mobile payments, and open banking, to Buy Now Pay Later and crypto. Great for consumers! But, incredibly complex for merchants and developers. That’s where Primer comes in.

Primer is the world's first automation platform for payments. With Primer, merchants and developers have all the underlying infrastructure and "lego blocks" they need to build the best buying experiences for their customers. Any developer can build a connection on Primer; merchants then simply 'click and connect' to the services they need to build their desired payment flows within their Primer dashboard.

Since starting in January 2020, we've raised funding from top tier investors including Accel, Balderton and Iconiq. Our all-star team from across the world of payments and fintech includes ex Braintree-PayPal, Stripe, Checkout, Tink, Recurly, TrueLayer, Paddle, Plaid, Kount and more - come and join us!

What would the role involve?

  • Build our core Python back end in the Acceptance team

  • Design and build highly secure, fault tolerant API's

  • Work on system design and architecture

  • Work closely with other engineers to build a state of the art end to end system

  • Leading internal projects with product manager's and cross functional teams

  • Taking ownership of key technology decisions, building for scale and optimising for output

  • Conducting code reviews and continuously look at ways of improving our ways of working

  • Developing deep payments expertise, always looking for ways to optimise our merchant developer experience

  • Creating detailed internal documentation for the projects you work on

What are we looking for?

  • Experience building high performance, distributed systems in Python

  • Experience designing and building API's

  • Security minded with experience of driving and using modern development practices

  • Passion for beautiful, well tested code

  • In-depth understanding of the entire development process (design, development and deployment)

  • Highly motivated self-starter who values autonomy and getting things done

  • Someone comfortable challenging how we do things and bringing new ideas to the table
