Don’t just have a
great idea, build it.
Who are we?
At American Express our Global Network relies increasingly on the deep expertise and experience of a core team of subject matter experts in advanced payments technology who are passionate about EMV Chip, Contactless, Mobile payments and similar emerging digital payment products and standards.
We value deep and broad knowledge of this domain in which we excel, to advance American Express and Industry specifications, provide solutions and consultancy to our product teams, and be great collaborators and communicators. We're proud that a culture of respect and teamwork exists among colleagues. We are part of a Technology team who thrive in close collaboration with our Business Product and Industry Standards teams.
We are a small team of payments technical experts in a centre of excellence based in the UK (and US)
Team members work for the majority of time in our modern office environment, and, based locally in the region we enjoy the luxury of avoiding a long commute to London and enjoy dynamic and interesting daily work. We have an excellent work/life balance, and flexible working practices.
International Travel is required from time-to-time when working on industry standards or on internal American Express business initiatives.
As a part of our commitments to EMVCo, the industry technical body responsible for secure and interoperable payment solutions, members of the team contribute to its work and mission and represent American Express positions and interests there.
Within Amex you’ll work closely with the Network Product teams and others using your skills in the domain of EMV Chip & Mobile payment products applied to POS terminals, cards and mobile devices to define solutions and be a key contributor to American Express Payment Product Specifications.
As well as solving stimulating daily consultancy requests that tap into your knowledge, you will partner closely with our Global Certification teams to help ensure the security and interoperability of chip and mobile products (and other emerging payment products) on the American Express Network.
Offer of employment
with American Express is conditioned upon the successful completion of a
background verification check, subject to applicable laws and regulations.
Coming from a technical background with business knowledge and context from your experience in the card payments industry you’ll be ready to succeed and apply your expertise gained in EMV, contactless payments and NFC mobile payments.
Your ability to combine your knowledge and passion with written communication skills to add to or author documents, such as the functionally focused chip Terminal, Chipcard or Mobile Contactless specifications in support of EMVCo or Amex standards and Amex payment products will be highly valued. Any additional expertise in the EMV Level 1 communications protocols is also welcomed.
You will be both able and comfortable representing American Express at external industry forums, in particular at EMVCo, and you’ll enjoy using your excellent verbal and written communications skills in doing so.
While the role does not currently involve any software development, relevant past experience as a software developer of EMV related products would be a valuable asset in support of the in-depth ‘bits & bytes’ understanding of how EMV chip products and similar work.
