We’re responsible for making sure that you can pay for things and get paid. This includes Mastercard, Bacs, Faster Payments, cash deposits, and so on. This includes both day to day operations, scheme management, and engineering.
Currently, we’re split in two squads, reliability and new schemes. One squad being a reactive while the other focusing on project work.
As of next week, we’ll be split differently. One squad covering transfers and cash deposits, the other handling everything to do with Mastercard or physical cards. I’ll be in the Mastercard team, of course.
We’re primarily a backend team. By the nature of needing to create internal tools, we do have some web front end experience but this is mainly within the existing frameworks of our Business Operations and Customer Support tools. We provide the platform for a product team to then build the user-facing functionality in the app.
