Overview

• Payment is a fast moving area and our customers are becoming ever more demanding and creative in terms of the payment products and solutions they expect from us. Fraudsters are equally becoming more creative. The technology that underpins these solutions evolves at an equally fast pace and one of the challenges is to keep the payment secure.
• The overarching role of the Design and Specifications team is to architect, design and specify the payment solutions of the future, pushing the boundaries of the possible while remaining practical enough to deliver interoperable and secure solutions at scale. The technologies being designed in this team are the basis for products and solutions of the present and the future. With 2 billion devices deployed that are accepted at more than 30 million locations, we have proven to be very successful.
• As a result we live at the cutting edge of product and security design. We apply new techniques and technologies into our product design and watch the future for new technologies and attacks to keep our products fit for purpose.
• Are you motivated to work in a team that is continuously challenged with making payment better and more secure?
• Do you have what it takes to secure the future of international payment?
