    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.

    Alternative Payments Platform team: We are five cross-functional scrum teams working on our
    Alternative Payments Platform (did you know we support more than 300 types of alternative
    payments?) in London. This is a Microsoft platform and a lot of the work we do is using C#, ASP.Net,
    WCF, T-SQL and SQL.

    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 370 colleagues and work across a
    number of different payment platforms. We’ve got 8 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
    completed (!)

    We’ve equally got teams working on other digital and eCommerce platforms; amongst others, we
    have a new greenfield project going, building an elastically scalable Microservices gateway using
    best engineering practises. This team is called Gateway 2.0 (GW2) and are based in between our
    Cambridge and London offices.

    To support all the growth in our Cambridge location, we’re building a super cool new office (right
    next door to the current one), which we estimate will be ready for the first teams to move into in
    Summer 2019. Exciting times!
