Building a business-critical data platform to process over £34bn in card transactions

Sandeep Mehta, Engineering Lead, Data Platforms @ Dojo

The UK payments infrastructure has remained unchanged for 20 years, resulting in a fragile and unpredictable system for processing card transactions. Sandeep will discuss their journey in building a PCI DSS-compliant data platform on Kubernetes, using cloud-native technologies to address the challenges of scaling one of Europe's largest fintechs in a highly regulated industry.

His talk will cover security, auto-scaling, data observability, data transformation, schema evolution, and data governance considerations. He aims to inspire the community to build a data stack that can handle millions of transactions per day with four-nines availability, referring to it as "building a nuclear power station - it cannot fail."
