The Money Product Area is responsible for enabling payment services to the whole of Spotify, from taking a regular Spotify subscription payment to e.g. a business ad sales payment. Today we are looking for a Senior Backend Engineer to join the Scrooge squad, and be part of the Money product area which covers all payments functions such as Risk & Fraud, Checkout service and Alternative payment methods. Scrooge is at the core of all payment transactions at Spotify, our main function is to process payment transactions with Payment processors or other internal payment functions. In this role in Scrooge, you will have unique and challenging opportunities to implement change in a complex high volume system environment where many things change the whole time, the tech stack, PSPs, regulations, new payment functionalities, etc. The list is long. You will together with the other ten members in the squad maintain and develop the Python code running in GCP and save all transactions in a Postgres database. The squad is in close cooperation with many stakeholders, of course the business team who strive for high auth rates and low transaction cost, surrounding sister teams inside the Money Product Area as well as in the larger Spotify. As Money is a central piece we are part of all company wide initiatives which includes payments. You will assume a lot of responsibility and it will be exciting moments when we deploy structural changes that affect many or even all of our transactions, or when you are on-call and an incident occurs.
