Life At Planet
Do you love putting smiles on faces? Do you want to work in an environment that is obsessed with making customers and employees happy? Do you want to be part of a global mission to revolutionise commerce and payments? Do you want to be working in a progressive organisation with the ambition to be the global player in what we do? If you do, then this role could be for you….

Datatrans has been part of Planet since November 2021. Here at Planet we are extremely proud of our heritage of over 30 years. And it is what makes us a unique payment partner for many of the world’s most prestigious brands. We don’t just provide world class commerce and payment services, we generate revenue for our customers, and we help them grow. In the early days, we set out to simplify the complex payment process of VAT refunds for international shoppers in Europe. Fast-forward to today, and our single payments platform is unique in the industry – the only one that offers acquiring, processing, digital wallets, VAT refunds and currency conversion services. We have recently integrated several other tech businesses – Protel, Hoist, Datatrans, Proximis – to help us to continue to grow and dominate the market as we set about our mission of being a world leader. And with strong Private Equity Investors from Advent International and Eurazeo, we are well set up to win. 

We know that it’s our people that differentiates who we are and what we do…and that is why we are keen to hire world class talent like you.
