Join the team

Join us and help change the future of finance.

Help us create a regulated, API-first bank

Most of the banking world is exclusive, opaque, and not particularly technology-friendly.

We're trying to change that - we want to lower barriers to entry for fintechs by providing easy access, clear documentation, and transparent pricing.

Local and global

Our offices are just off Moorgate in central London, but our engineering workforce is distributed. We're currently prioritizing local hires, but are open to remote for exceptional UK/EU/US candidates.

Current Openings

We're hiring for multiple roles, including, but not limited to:


Backend Engineer

London, UK


About the role

As a backend engineer you'll be responsible for building out our core banking systems, which are responsible for handling compliance as well as managing accounts and transactions. As a wholesale bank, we're building for scale from day one - our infrastructure has to scale to tens of thousands of requests per second, with all systems fully correct and available. We'll also need fully-functional integrations with a half-dozen different payment rails such as Faster Payments, Direct Debit, CHAPS, and various card networks.

Our technology stack is Clojure, Kafka, Postgres, and Kubernetes.

Qualifications

  • Some prior Clojure experience is required.
  • Experience with the other parts of our stack is preferred, but not required.
  • Similarly, relevant domain experience in payments or core banking systems is a plus, but not mandatory.
  • We index highly on communication and require ILR 4+ (business fluency) in English

Infrastructure Engineer

London, UK


About the role

As an infrastructure engineer you'll be responsible for building and maintaining the infrastructure that hosts all of our services. This includes installing, maintaining and monitoring services such as Kubernetes, Kafka, various AWS services, monitoring, logging, disaster recovery, chaos engineering, encryption, ACLs and network rules.

If you don't want to be pidgeon-holed doing only devops, that's fine! Up to 50% of your time can be spent on backend development.

Qualifications

  • Strong experience in devops, Unix administration, TCP/IP networking, AWS required
  • Some experience in Ansible/Chef/Salt/Terraform/CloudFormation desirable
  • Prior experience in Clojure nice to have
  • Domain experience in payments or core banking systems is nice, but not necessary
  • We index highly on communication and require ILR 4+ (business fluency) in English

Security Engineer

London, UK


About the role

We're building a bank, so security is paramount. We need security at many levels: AppSec, NetSec, Devops, Corporate IT, Customer Privacy, as well as external Threat Operations. You'll be responsible for helping to both drive high-level strategic thinking around our security model, as well as actually implementing the necessary infrastructure.

Product Manager

London, UK


About the role

As part of the product team, your job will be to liaise with customers about what their needs are and to help translate those into product specs, working with the development team to guide feature development. You can expect to acquire an intimate knowledge of relevant banking regulations along the way.

Day-to-day responsibilities include researching and writing feature qualifications documents, responding to regulation-related questions from the development team, and reviewing features delivered by the development team.

Qualifications

  • Prior experience in UK/EU banking/fintech required.
  • Some prior experience in payments or white-label banking a huge plus.
  • Technical ability is nice to have, but not required.
