One of the UK’s leading FinTech companies is undergoing a period of rapid expansion, and to ensure that they can deliver a first-class experience they’re looking to grow their expanding applications team.

Their mission is to cure one of the banking industry’s primary problems: it’s reliance on outdated IT infrastructure. Nearly every bank is stuck on a legacy IT platform, which cripples their ability to innovate and give their customers the service they deserve.

Their solution to this is a cloud-based plug-in: a complete retail banking platform, capable of being configured easily to suit the needs of any bank. They have built Vault from the ground up as a cloud-native, microservice API architecture platform.

The team is looking for highly talented individuals to grow with their company and help achieve their ambitious goals.

Where they strive to create the best possible working environment; a healthy mix of great technical work, a supportive atmosphere and an irreverent sense of fun. They only hire the highest calibre candidates to join their team. While they will ask a lot of you, you will benefit from working in a world-class team and with colleagues who excel.
