Zalando Payments builds the technologies for all financial transactions in the fashion store and our other consumer facing apps.

Through smart risk steering we boost conversion and deliver a competitive advantage to our customers, taking in the entire financial process.

As a Backend Software Engineer at Zalando Payments in Dortmund, you will be working on the core of our offering: The Payment API that we are providing to our customers and which is used by multiple customer facing applications, including the checkout page that you have already used if you have ever purchased anything from Zalando. Controlled by this API, our systems orchestrate the complex payment process supporting over twenty different payment methods, from prepayment and invoice to credit card and direct debit, as well as many European payment methods you may not have heard about yet - unless you already bring a payment background.
