Worldline to hire more than 5,000 talented people globally

Paris La Défense — 31 / 01 / 2022

Worldline [Euronext: WLN] the European leader in payments and transactional services, is looking to recruit thousands talented people to continue its consolidation strategy, accelerate its technology transformation and provide its clients with the best payment offering around the globe.

La Défense, Paris, France

Worldline recently presented its new strategic plan, detailing its ambition of being the premium global Paytech company at the heart of the European payment ecosystem. The two key axis of the plan are to accelerate the company’s geographical expansion as well as its investment in technology. In parallel, these past months have accelerated the digitization of commerce and changed forever how people choose to pay, live, and do business. Worldline is at the forefront of this rapid evolution and is committed to support the high demand from its clients and their adoption of new payments trends. 

To successfully transform the company into this global paytech leader, Worldline will recruit more than 5,000 experts globally within the coming months. The Group is recruiting for both junior roles as well as for experienced senior placements. The new recruitments will be primarily tech operators, developers, engineers, application managers, architects, products managers, products owners and data analysts.

Providing the payments world with next gen technology

Worldline cooperates closely with many innovative partners to provide clients with next generation technology and engaging customers – for example: Worldline offers sustainable banking solutions across the European market and additional value to help clients combatting climate change with the fintech ecolytiq; Worldline is boosting the global adoption of ‘live shopping’ and ‘in-video checkout’ with Livescale, offering services to shoppers via livestreaming video; the Group allows payments with cryptocurrencies in Switzerland with Bitcoin Suisse; or it integrates Microsoft Dynamics 365 Fraud Protection into its digital commerce payments suite to futureproof online businesses against fraud.

Becoming the employer of choice in the payments industry

Worldline is a people business, and as the company grows and expands into new markets and new technologies, the attraction and retention of talent is fundamental to its success.
