At GoDaddy, we are seeking a different type of developer: people who know the reality of keeping the business running while simultaneously reinventing the core systems. Developers who engineer systems that are performant, self-healing, easily monitored, and fault-tolerant from the ground up. Do we care about the technologies you have worked with? Yes! But what we value most is the experience and insight to see beyond the current tools to the essence of great architecture and engineering. Does this describe you?

We are moving full-steam towards reinventing our payments platform to be globally distributed, robust, and fully automated. This new platform will be plugin-enabled, allowing GoDaddy to easily integrate with any payment gateway. If this sounds like something you want to work on, we are very excited to hear from you!
