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.

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.


Private medical insurance

We offer private medical insurance through AXA and life insurance through AIG to our employees.

Generous stock option grants

We believe in generous stock grants for everyone at the company. We think people do their best work when incentives are aligned :)

Work from home

We aren't prescriptive about whether you need to be in the office or at home. If you've got some chores to bang out in the middle of the day, we'll see you when we see you!

25 days off + annual holidays

We offer 5 weeks off on top of any national holidays (bank holidays here in Europe, federal holidays in the US).
