Senior Javascript / Front End Developer


Adyen is growing fast and is therefore looking for Senior JavaScript / Front End Developers to add to our highly skilled team, who’ll collectively push boundaries of the customer experience and technology at Adyen.

We are at the forefront of the global technology scene, providing our services to the world's leading innovative companies (Facebook, Spotify, Groupon, Evernote,, Yelp, Vodafone, Mango and many more). We work in close partnership with these companies to ensure they are always ahead of the game. Guided by Fintech's most experienced software developers, we need you to contribute to the customer-facing component of our fast-growing platform that processes billions of transactions a year.

We are looking for

We’re looking for people with side projects, people who love to check out or open-source github repo’s, design systems and style guides. People who understand that shipping fast doesn’t mean you ship bad quality (it’s not how you build it, but what you build), someone who can explain their job to their grandparents - after which they actually understand - and someone who gets all geeky about well-documented, great new frameworks or tools. Last but not least, we’re looking for people who think designers can be, should be (and maybe are?) their ultimate partner-in-crime.

An ideal candidate is a true ambassador of frontend development, is highly skilled with HTML, CSS and JavaScript - experience with D3 and/or Node.js would definitely be an advantage. You are experienced in building high performance, live web applications and you have no problem talking us through them. You’re familiar with complex high performance platforms and you have an eye for detail, you take ownership of your work, you’re flexible and a team player (humility goes a long way, sometimes!). Also, you the ability to communicate clearly in English.

If multiple of these criteria hit the nail on the head, then let’s chat!

Our team

The Adyen tech teams are full of passionate, talented and great engineers, designers and product managers and we’re looking to expand. As a senior javascript / frontend developer, you’ll be working on products that help our (over) 5000 merchants make payments all over the world.

You will be part of one of our 17 work streams (teams, squads, groups); like Customer Area, On-boarding (KYC) Market Pay, Data/Risk, Point-of-Sale, Local Payment Methods, Mobile, Finance or Acquiring. Within a work stream you’ll closely collaborate with colleagues from different disciplines, such as designers, account managers, data analysts and other developers. You’ll work on challenging projects to innovate our web application platform and therefore benefit our customers (merchants). You’ll be developing interactive components and user interfaces for internal and external system users. Your focus will be on frontend technologies, but you also understand backend enough to know how it works and how it communicates with a frontend.

This is what you'll be doing

  • Work on and be involved in conversations about architecture and core, code tools and libraries
  • You’ll write maintainable/shareable code with the ability to identify and resolve issues and bugs over a full stack environment
  • Investigate new technical possibilities to keep the needle moving, while being pragmatic about where we’re at with existing frameworks
  • Share knowledge with colleagues and companies all over the world (you preferably love to help out your colleagues)
  • Have complete freedom and responsibility to make your own decisions in a fast pace environment

We offer you

We offer you having an impact from day one, a competitive salary, help with relocation and an exchange program to other offices around the world. What we’re actually most proud of is the fact we give you all the freedom you need to shape your own career path. Whether you want to move into a Sales position, take a training (internally or externally), develop yourself as a leader, get better at presenting or take a deep dive and specialise, we love any and every type of personal development and growth. Let’s grow together!
