At Payroc, we're building the next generation of capabilities that powers our merchant-first ecosystem. The radical and responsible delivery of value is our mandate. We believe that focused and empowered teams can do great things. You'll find that we're a curious, driven, and pragmatic bunch who believe in outcomes over outputs, and we're looking for like-minded individuals to join us on our journey.

What we're obsessive about:

  • Small teams, big things: We'll convey the outcomes our merchants require, provide you with the support and tools to succeed, and then we let you work your magic, with no needless processes to get in your way.
  • Develop, grow, thrive: We promote a philosophy where you can develop and grow as an individual and team. We encourage you to approach problems in unique ways, try new techniques, learn from your colleagues and master your craft.
  • Real people, real problems: We develop solutions to solve real-world challenges faced by our merchants. Our Team Members collaborate to build the right things the right way. We are curious about how things work, and we believe that sharing ideas and insights leads to better, more innovative products.

The SSE I (Frontend) will help us transform our existing suite of apps into a modern experience that will delight our customers, and ultimately make it easier for them to manage their merchant portfolio and accept payments. They will leverage modern tools and frameworks including Javascript and Vue, working with our User Experience team to design and build data rich portals, simple yet secure hosted payment pages and payment form elements. In addition, they will help to build and support a reusable component library to help realise our design system.

As part of a dynamic and exciting development centre, the SSE I (Frontend) will engage with a variety of languages, frameworks, libraries, and services, while utilising state-of-the-art software techniques, including Behavioural Driven Development, and CI/CD.
