We lift economies and communities by advancing the way the world pays, banks and invests.
Since our two companies came together, Worldpay has formed the Merchant Solutions division of FIS. We call it Worldpay, from FIS. FIS stays ahead of how the world is evolving to power businesses, across merchants, banking and capital markets, to outpace today’s fast-changing competitive landscape and help our clients run, grow and achieve more for their business.
We want all our people to bring their very best self into work, and that means balancing priorities and passions, at work and at home. We create teams without barriers, fostering creativity and innovation - behaviours that we value in everything we do.
Our London team
Our London office in the Walbrook building is our internal headquarters and we are around 1500
colleagues working here. Life at Worldpay is fast paced and exciting, and we have teams working
across a large number of different payments platforms, some of which are described in more detail
below. The office environment is light, casual, colourful and open plan, with lots of space for
Gateway 2.0 team (GW2): As a tribe, we’ve existed for about two years now. We’re working on a
greenfield project building a new Microservices payment gateway using Java 8, Scala, AWS,
Kubernetes (and many, many more) We’re five squads in London at the moment (we also have
squads in our Cambridge office); our squads are product-aligned with end-to-end ownership of
product features. They are cross-discipline encompassing design, development, quality assurance
and cloud infrastructure expertise.
Acquiring Platform team: We’re undergoing lots of transformation in this team and are currently re-
architecting our global platform to move to a loosely-coupled, asynchronous microservice
architecture. Kafka is our technology of choice to facilitate this as well as Java, Angular and Oracle. In
terms of hosting, we’re targeting OpenShift2, so Kubernetes and Docker amongst others. We’re the
only company in the world to have built an acquiring platform this size in the last 30 years!
Data Technology team: We put data at the heart of our business and our Data Engineering team is in
the thick of it, building disruptive technology for the highly competitive payments industry. Working
with over 400,000 merchants and their consumers we’re working with a range of needs and large-
scale data, giving us the complex challenge to create powerful analytic capabilities for Worldpay and
our customers. Our platform uses Hadoop, Java, Scala, Spark and Kafka.
Our Cambridge team
Cambridge is one of our tech hubs in the UK. We are around 400+ colleagues and work across a
number of different payment platforms. We’ve got 10 cross-functional scrum teams working on our
main eCommerce payment gateway, a Java & Oracle platform, that at peak time can happily process
800 transactions every second and on its busiest days over 10m payments are successfully
We’ve equally got teams working on other digital and eCommerce platforms; amongst others, we
have a greenfield project going, building an elastically scalable Microservice gateway using
XP practises. This team is called Gateway 2.0 (GW2) and are based in
Cambridge and in London.
To support the continuous growth in Cambridge, we’ve built a super cool new office which we
moved into in September 2019.
