Job description

At TWINT, we believe that innovation should simplify our lives and coexistence. It should help us focus on the things that truly matter: the experiences that move us, the people close to us, and everything that brings us together. That's why we ensure that our daily lives continually become easier – because payment and everything around it gets seamlessly integrated into our lives. So that each one of us can make more out of the moment. For ourselves, for others, and for all of Switzerland.


The Technology & Architecture Team is a pioneering competence centre inside TWINT building the architectural vision for TWINT and guiding the development and continuous improvement of a high-performance, scalable and secure payment system. To allow TWINT to grow and expand, the Technology & Architecture team is searching for two vacant positions: Lead Application Stream Architect & Lead Enterprise Architect, both with similar profiles.


As a Lead Application Stream Architect, you are the link between the Technology & Architecture team and the value stream building the application. You are part of the value stream leadership and own the technical lead of the value stream and all engineering teams in it. You define the technical & architectural vision for the value stream, help the engineering teams design features, and enforce best practices in coding and architectural patterns. At the same time, you are also part of the Technology & Architecture team, where we build the target architecture for the entire company.


The position of Lead Enterprise Architect is a more technical position at TWINT than elsewhere. You will be responsible for our strategic projects, where you will map business requirements to technical requirements. You're responsible for designing new microservices and how they integrate with the existing payment processing backend. You will manage stakeholders across the entire ecosystem and coordinate the technical architecture and feasibility of all members across the ecosystem nationally and internationally.

  • Identifying current technical debt and showing minimal invasive paths to decrease it
  • Supporting business units in architecting new features into a complex nationwide payment scheme
  • Stakeholder management across IT and business stakeholders, inside and outside of the company, as well as internationally
  • Definition of architecture and interfaces, taking into account corporate goals and economic efficiency
  • Scout for - and be aware of new, relevant technologies and show where and how they could integrate into our current systems
  • Supporting the migration from our current hoster to a public cloud provider in cooperation with the development teams without impacting operations
  • Ensuring the technical governance of projects and partners

Job requirements

  • Completed computer science degree (Bachelor or Master) with several years of hands-on and project experience, ideally in the payment environment
  • Profound, multi-year practical and project experience in software engineering in a business and technically complex environment
  • Knowledge of Java/Java EE as well as Git, familiarity with observability tools for application and infrastructure monitoring, AWS knowledge advantageous
  • Broad knowledge of modern architecture concepts (micro services, container technologies, event-driven design, cloud architecture, ...)
  • Hands-on attitude, taking responsibility and displaying personal initiative, independence and entrepreneurial spirit
  • Strong leadership and technical leadership skills
  • Experience with agile project methodology (certification advantageous)
  • Experienced in producing management-grade concepts and present them to business and IT executives
  • Analytical and structured way of working, practice-oriented solution finding and excellent communication skills
  • Very good knowledge of English (German advantageous)


What awaits you:

  • Career and development: Shape your professional future through exciting tasks and challenges, as well as comprehensive further education opportunities in an innovative technology company.
  • Work-life balance: Enjoy 6 weeks of vacation time and benefit from flexible working hours with the option to work from home.
  • Balancing work and family: Benefit from additional perks such as increased family allowances and more parental leave.
