This is Adyen
We took an unobvious approach to starting a payments company, building a platform from scratch. Today, we're the payments platform of choice for the world's brightest companies. Speed is the foundation of our company. We think fast. We work fast. We launch fast. We are honest, direct, and try to have some fun too. We’re creating our own path, with a global team driving sustainable growth. To maintain our momentum, we need people to join us in finding new ways of solving our unique challenges - people like you.
Adyen is looking for a full-time PostgreSQL enthusiast to join our team in Amsterdam. Adyen has one of the largest (real-time transactional) PostgreSQL instances in the world. Over the last couple of years we've sponsored many additions to PostgreSQL. We are looking to invest more into PostgreSQL by hiring multiple internal experts. These persons are expected to contribute to the PostgreSQL repository and keep in close contact with the community.
The significance of PostgreSQL is becoming larger and larger as our business and platform are growing exceptionally fast. This excites us to contribute to the PostgreSQL as much as we possibly can. We believe it is extremely important to contribute and help further improve the PostgreSQL community because it has helped us a long way and continues to do so.
As a PostgreSQL expert at Adyen you will be working closely with our development and infrastructure teams to provide them your knowledge and to understand what they are working on. This knowledge will help you to develop and consult internally at Adyen with Postgres and externally to the PostgreSQL community. We expect you to represent Adyen in the PostgreSQL community and actively engage within the community.
Hence, we are not looking for a more traditional DBA role and this position can also be described as a Distributed Systems Engineer.
If this all sounds as the right challenge for you and if you, like us, also care about the PostgreSQL community, please consider applying for this (PostgreSQL expert) role. We don’t like to be very specific with requirements for this job: apply and get in touch with us if this role would make you happy and you truly think you’re the person suited to do this.
