The Solution Architect within SurePay serves as a bridge between the business and IT. It is a very broad role in which activities range from deep diving into business requirements to documenting and prototyping IT solutions.


Your job at SurePay

You work together with Business Analysts and Product Owners as well as with our multi-disciplined engineering teams. It is the job of the Solution Architect to understand both the SurePay IT landscape and the outside world, specifically the international financial domain, and design solutions in close cooperation with all stakeholders.

SurePay provides a cloud native SaaS solution in a multi-region setup in Amazon AWS. We are processing millions of transactions per day and availability is 24/7 with minimum failures. Releases are deployed continuously without impact thanks to the infrastructure-as-code pattern used widely. The tech stack consists of several AWS services like EC2, S3, Cloudwatch, DynamoDB, and such, as well as third party components such as Elastic and Apigee Edge. Development is mostly done in Java, Kotlin, and Python.

As a Solution Architect you love the world of APIs. And you love difficult challenges. You understand the importance of software quality and API design, as well as the importance of designing new features with a short time to market. You understand different trade-offs and ultimately you will drive the architecture together with fellow architects, engineers, and other stakeholders.

SurePay makes payment easier, more personal and even more secure. We are a Fintech company, with the most well known product being the IBAN-Name Check, also known internationally as Confirmation of Payee. This product is purchased by almost all banks in the Netherlands, but also by major insurers, lenders, ministries and government agencies.

In total we have already carried out more than 4 Billion checks. Since we went live with IBAN-Name Check, the number of invoice fraud via transfers to Dutch IBANs has decreased by no less than 81%. 

SurePay stems from an innovation program of Rabobank, started in July 2016 and has been an independent BV since the beginning of 2020. SurePay is currently in the scale-up phase; we are engaged in the international roll-out of our services. In England we now have a foothold and we check 35% of all payments. Other countries are in the pipeline. We are currently working with 5 scrum teams and a business / sales team on our ambitious growth goals.

SurePay is being backed by three leading investors, specialised at scaling B2B SaaS solutions internationally and FinTech companies. Rabo Frontier Ventures, a strategic investment arm of Rabobank, Connected Capital and Iris Capital support our company's mission of preventing international payment fraud.
