Our team members are motivated individuals that help each other do remarkable things every day. We face unique technical challenges at scale and we solve those as a team. And together, we deliver innovative and ethical solutions that transform the way the world pays.

We took an unobvious approach to starting a payments company, building a platform from scratch. Now, Adyen serves the world's brightest companies like Facebook, Uber, L'Oreal, Casper, Bonobos and Spotify.

Project Operations Manager

As a Project Operations Manager based in Amsterdam, you will be focused primarily on delivery and execution of complex global projects for the benefit of our Clients. These projects can range from Point of Sale (POS), Marketplace e-commerce, and card issuing program roll outs.

As an expert driving complex technical and operational roll-outs, you will interact and collaborate with internal and external stakeholders in order to create a seamless service deployment experience for Clients looking to go live on our platform. You will do this by using your experience in integrating systems and superb project management skills. This is a varied and hands-on role in which your tasks range from discussing a project’s strategic direction on one end to verifying correct configurations at the other.

What you'll do

  • Manage the project lifecycle from start to finish, ensuring that our Clients are fully prepared to roll-out Adyen’s solution;
  • Work closely with Clients’ project and technical teams as well as third parties such as technical integration partners to ensure a smooth rollout;
  • Build relationships with both internal and external stakeholders to ensure effective management and communication of progress to all parties;
  • Provide guidance on Adyen’s product and advise on the solution that best fits Clients’ business needs;
  • Ensure successful project handovers once the rollout has been completed by setting up scalable business as usual and support processes;
  • Contribute to internal process improvement initiatives to help our business scale.

Who you are

  • Experienced with setting-up complex (ideally technical) projects with multiple stakeholders. Experience in Payments industry or Technical Background is a plus;
  • Client-facing experience, stakeholder management, ability to lead conversations and influence business decisions;
  • Excellent Project Management skills and the ability to lead and manage detailed, time-sensitive initiatives in a fast-paced environment with minimal supervision;
  • Able to interface and cooperate seamlessly with a global team, adapting to international time constraints where appropriate. Having work experience abroad and/or in multicultural teams is a plus;
  • Fluency in both English and German;
  • Must be willing to travel, both domestically and internationally where required.

What employees are saying


Technical Support


Adyen gave me the opportunity to finish my study and work part-time as NextGen. In this way I was able to experience what it's like to work for Adyen and also develop myself as a potential new full-time employee. My favourite thing about Adyen are the variety of challenges and the company culture.




Apart from the innovative, tech-driven, dynamic climate, what I love most about Adyen is the people I get to work with. They’re smart, driven, enthusiastic, and willing to take themselves and Adyen to the next level over and over again. In such an environment you can only thrive.
