As a Business Analyst in our Payments Platform you will play an integral part in enhancing, evolving and driving the direction of the payment offering we provide our millions of customers globally. Payment methods are a key enabler to unlocking growth in the many markets we operate in and maintaining pace with how our customers want to pay is a challenge we thrive on.
