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 a few blocks off the Old Street roundabout in London, but our engineering workforce is distributed. We're currently hiring remote across the UK/EU/US for all qualified candidates.

Current Openings

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


Backend Engineer

Remote or 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.

Frontend Engineer

Remote or London, UK


About the role

As the first frontend engineer, you'll be building fast, responsive and delightful user interfaces both for our customers and for our internal tooling (think systems analytics as well as compliance workflow dashboards). You'll be working closely with the design team, so having an eye for good design is appreciated.

Qualifications

Familiarity with ClojureScript and React is required. Experience with event-driven frameworks like Reagent is also a plus.

Designer

Remote or London, UK


About the role

Design has long been a major differentiator for developer-focused companies (just think about Stripe or Twilio). As our first designer, you'll drive the look and feel of our internal and customer-facing UIs, API documentation and marketing pages.

Qualifications

While not required, a familiarity with code (i.e. HTML, CSS) is a massive plus.

Security Engineer

Remote or 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

Remote or London, UK


About the role

As part of the product team, your job will be to read and understand the relevant banking regulations, and work with the development team to guide feature development. 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 preferred. Technical ability is a plus, but not required.
