The Company

Vantiv is making payments smarter, faster and easier for all our partners, as well as the consumers they serve. From the largest retailers in the U.S. to the coffee shop down the street, we are leading the transformation in payments through chip-enabled cards, mobile wallets, eCommerce, and payment solutions for businesses of all sizes. We are the fastest growing payments company in the U.S., first in PIN Debit transactions and the second largest merchant acquirer. Visit for more.


The Opportunity

As Vantiv grows, so does our need to ensure we are protected from the many dangers that exist in the world of cyberspace, especially in a data-sensitive industry like payments processing. Security comes in many forms and we work hard to provide our customers with the peace of mind that their valuable data is safe with us.

The Application Security Engineer focuses on the critical work of developing and executing on software security projects and processes to ensure Vantiv maintains healthy and secure products and services.

Rewarding Impact. Fulfilling Careers.

Making an impact isn't something reserved for people in corner offices. At Vantiv, it comes from people in every corner of the office. People with ambition, optimism and courage. We provide growth and opportunity and give employees flexibility in how they get the job done. You might not expect that from a big payments company, but we're smart enough to know how to hire the best and when to step aside and let them lead. Our goal is that you never stop learning and you never cease to amaze--especially yourself. If this fits your career goal, we can't wait to welcome you on board.
