About Ezypay 

Ezypay is a multi award-winning Fintech company established in 1996, specialising in the provision of subscription and recurring direct debit payments. 

With offices in Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia, Ezypay has processed over $3 billion worth of subscription payments in 9 countries across the Asia Pacific region (Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand and South Korea) and we’re continually expanding. 

Over the last few years, we have put significant effort into our next generation cloud subscription billing platform. This is a core strategic focus and we continue to actively develop and grow this platform. 

About You 

You have extensive experience in the design and development of distributed, highly transactional systems.

You demand autonomy, and offer it to your team, who you are passionate about mentoring and growing into a high performing software development powerhouse.  

You have business acumen, understand the role Engineering and Product takes in evolving Asia Pacific's leading recurring payments and subscription billing, and are ready to lead others in optimising our product to suit our customers’ needs and drive us towards our aggressive growth targets.

Main Responsibilities   

  • You are a leader in our cloud platform, and maintain our best-in-class product, a Java based micro-services architecture hosted on AWS.

  • Perform operational procedures, including ongoing maintenance, on runtime systems, both manual and automated, in accordance with company standards.  
  • Provide recommendations for continuous improvement to the product and delivery process.  
  • Mentor and lead a small team of engineers 

 

Our Technical Environment

Here’s a high-level view of how we work: 

  • Our next generation payments platform has been developed using Java – specifically leveraging the Spring Boot framework 
  • Our infrastructure is hosted on AWS; using a mixture of containerization (Fargate) and vanilla EC2 – we're also open to exploring Kubernetes

  • We’re introducing GraphQL (leveraging Apollo and Hasura) to open up our rich data model to internal and external stakeholders 
  • We develop frontend systems using the Vue framework 
  • We aggregate and analyze logs from all of our systems via the ELK stack 
  • Our operating system of choice is CentOS and our DevSecOps team is fanatical about security, monitoring, and patch management 
  • Our infrastructure is immutable and managed using IaC principles via Terraform 
  • We leverage build automation (specifically CircleCI), and we’re working toward continuous deployment across all environments 
  • We take advantage of AWS services to meet our various technology requirements: 
  • PostgreSQL (Aurora) clusters are managed via RDS 
  • Redis clusters are managed via ElastiCache 
  • KMS provides managed security services 
  • AWS Lambda and API Gateway support our serverless infrastructure; DynamoDB is also an important part of our stack 
  • We utilise highly durable messaging technologies such as SQS, Kinesis, and AWS EventBridge 

Requirements   

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering or relevant Information technology industry experience.
