Access Worldpay people

Blog Post created by dayo on Jul 16, 2019

Access Worldpay is our new set of APIs that is fast, supports simple integrations with fault-tolerant, micro, and scalable services. Our developers have created a set of APIs that are readable by humans and machines, thanks to a simple JSON schema. And with Hypermedia, our APIs simplify complex payment journeys for our customers. Learn more about our APIs here.

 

Access Worldpay is a project run by developers, for developers. At the center are smart, spirited and supportive people.

 

What's behind the doors of Access Worldpay?

 

The project kicked off in 2016 from our London and Cambridge offices. The vision? Creating an easy-to-use platform, powered by our engineers.

 

In 2018, Worldpay and Vantiv became one organization, and the doors opened for collaborations of many different teams across the ocean. Our colleagues in the US had been working on microservices that offered an excellent opportunity when combined with our Access Worldpay product. This resulted in a unique and inclusive way of working together.

 

Our engineering squads are responsible for the design, build, release and operation of our APIs and services. This allows for full end-to-end control of the product but also gives people opportunities to grow as teams and individuals. Squads are autonomous and accountable for progress, which makes the project highly flexible.

 

Teams are working on an API set that is not only the industry standard but also uses a full REST maturity model. Our aim is to build a quality service, guaranteeing 100 percent uptime. Living by the principles such as: “If it’s not tested, it’s broken”, our approach to testing and “Requirements before solutions” means that our APIs and services are quality-assured throughout the development lifecycle.

 

What’s coming next?

 

We want you to meet and get to know the people behind Access Worldpay. In the coming weeks, we will be publishing a number of articles. This will include interviews relating to method, processes, and principles we use in and out of development. You can expect to read about topics such as Test-Driven Development (TDD)our approach to Shift-left in QAGrowing in Breath and Depth and many more, stay tuned.
