The primary purpose and scope of the Android Developer is to help develop and support existing MYPINPAD products. Working with the Android Development Team, Services Development Team and UX Team, the Android Developer will be a passionate app developer who enjoys a technical challenge.
BACKGROUND AND CONTEXT
The Licentia Group consists of two trading entities – MYPINPAD and MYHSM.
MYPINPAD delivers a certified ‘bank grade’ authentication platform delivered on off the shelf consumer devices. Our proprietary and patented technology secures and protects the input of sensitive information on touchscreens creating a trusted environment.
Applications of this technology are far reaching and include the replacement of traditional card payment machines found in high-street retailers with everyday inexpensive tablets and smart phones. The entry of card PIN and data is fully secure and protected by MYPINPAD’s patented software platform which promises to reduce cost and complexity for payment acceptance while promoting rapid global adoption.
Further applications for the technology include online shopping, automotive, medical and any environment where secure personal authentication is essential.
MYPINPAD is the first company in the world to have achieved PCI certification for software only SPoC on Android and iOS and are poised to be the first in the world for CPoC.
MYHSM is a Global provider of Payment Hardware Security Modules (HSM) as a Service. Traditionally, banks and Payment Service Providers have their own infrastructure for HSMs and manage the compliance and physical datacentres themselves. MYHSM offers Payment HSMs on the cloud, reducing CAPEX expenditure as well as some of the complexities of compliance and regulation.
MYHSM is a growing business and is using partner networks to rapidly expand.
It is an exciting time for the Licentia Group as we have a pipeline of opportunities to exploit and are focussed on translating customer engagement into revenue.
