  • Responsibilities

    We lift economies and communities by advancing the way the world pays, banks and invests.

    Since our two companies came together, Worldpay has formed the Merchant Solutions division of FIS. We call it “Worldpay, from FIS”. In the time you’ve taken to read this one sentence, our platforms have processed over 8,000 transactions and this number grows daily. Join us now to realize your own future growth and success.

    FIS stays ahead of how the world is evolving to power businesses, across merchants, banking and capital markets, to outpace today’s fast-changing competitive landscape and help our clients run, grow and achieve more for their business.

    We want all our people to bring their very best self into work, and that means balancing priorities and passions, at work and at home. We create teams without barriers, fostering creativity and innovation - behaviors that we value in everything we do.

    We consistently develop and deliver new features onto our live platform. This platform handles millions of merchant transactions around the clock. These features along with our ability to consistently deliver them make us stand out in the highly competitive payments business. Our engineering team is critical to our mission - we are fundamentally a technology company. We succeed by offering innovative features to our merchants while retaining the reliability, quality, and fault tolerance they require.

    We are seeking well-versed engineers and do not hire based on buzz word technologies. Our engineering team utilizes Agile Development methodologies and employs a collaborative approach to our work. Our primary goal is to deliver business value early and often.

    A comprehensive benefits package, competitive compensation, and free use of an in-office, state-of-the-art fitness center are just a few of the perks offered to FIS's employees.
