Hi, we are Mollie! 👋🏼

Our mission is creating a greater playing field for everyone. By offering convenient, safe and worldwide payment solutions we remove barriers for companies of all sizes to compete on equal terms.

Being authentic is our baseline

We provide a simple and clear payment API, which enables webshop and app builders to implement more than ten different payment methods in one go.

In the first few years of existence, Mollie was a developer-only adventure, and about 15 years later devs and techs still comprise roughly 45% of all staff. As a natural consequence, Mollie still is—and aims to remain—highly tech-minded.

This focus on the technical side can be found in various things. For example, you pick whatever tools you want to use to get the job done. MacBooks, absurdly large screens, top-notch noise-cancelling headphones and whatever other equipment makes your nerd-boat float. We go to great lengths to create a space that allows you to focus on the things that will make you happy: shipping great features you helped dream up and build.

We don’t have code monkeys, but we do give you a problem and trust that you will create an outstanding solution. We believe in sane working hours and long-term solutions, instead of 70-hour work weeks with temporary workarounds.

What will you be doing

You will be working with us on shaping and improving our cloud-based infrastructure.These products are used by tens of thousands of merchants on a daily basis.

We care for quality and well-designed user experiences—for engineers and non-engineers alike. This translates to clean, well-documented REST APIs. We also make sure user interfaces for our merchants are equally smooth

You will work closely with our system engineers and back-end engineers to ship new products with a DevOps mindset. You will strike a balance between shipping often and maintaining a high level of system reliability and security.

They are multiple payments being performed on our platform every second of the day. Thus the code quality and system scalability are becoming increasingly important. Helping us build scalable products by thinking ahead will be an important part of your work.

Next to our existing APIs and dashboard, we are working on innovative financial solutions for our merchants. We are happy to share the details over a coffee, but it's safe to say we will put your skills to the test, allowing you to grow and learn rapidly.

Our architecture

We come from a monolithic background, with our core systems being written mostly in PHP. As we started to scale up rapidly, we have scaled our infrastructure along with it by employing microservices, serverless architecture, and queueing systems. For current and future microservices, we use languages like Python and Go as well.

Our systems are cloud-based, so we leverage the latest cloud technologies to keep scaling and upgrading our infrastructure.
