GoCardless is looking for Site Reliability Engineers to help scale our infrastructure. We have thousands of businesses across Europe that are using our service to collect payments, and we hope that you can help us go global.
As a Site Reliability Engineer you'll be part of a small team that sets the direction of the GoCardless core stack. You'll think through the moving pieces that make up our infrastructure and the complex interactions between them. You'll work with every other team within engineering – from product to data – to help build and scale the platform our product sits on.

We’re building the payments network for the internet. Join us.
Since GoCardless was set up in 2011, we have been focussed on simplifying Direct Debit and opening up access to companies who could never previously use it. We already process over $1bn each year for thousands of businesses, and we are growing fast.
We work with a huge range of organisations: small gyms and scout groups use us to reduce admin; fast growing companies like Funding Circle use us to power their growth; established institutions like the Guardian use us to dramatically reduce failure rates.
Our ambitions go beyond this: we want to break down barriers so that businesses can quickly and simply start taking payments from anyone, anywhere in the world.
Over the last year, we’ve expanded our offering for larger organisations, like the Guardian and the UK Government. We’ve also added European Direct Debit schemes, so multinational companies can collect payments across Europe with ease. We’ve recently launched in France and Germany, and in the coming year we’ll continue our global expansion, as we create a global network for recurring payments.
We’re London-based, and backed by some of the world’s leading investors including Balderton Capital, Accel Partners, Passion Capital and Y Combinator.
