Future Focused, Tech Enabled.

We’re revolutionising the way we work. Harnessing the power of the cloud to transform big ideas into reality. Embracing open-source software to make a difference in people’s financial lives. And we’re doing it in agile teams – 45 in fact. We’re not shy about collaborating or learning from each other either. Because the more fun we’re having developing creative, new technology, the better services we can offer our customers. We’re looking for people with the same attitude and approach. So, what are you waiting for?

Open source tech. Open source culture.

We use a wide variety of open source tools and technologies to develop public cloud solutions. It’s about using the right tool for the job. Different teams have different needs and different problems to solve.
Open source isn’t just a technology preference; it also represents our culture. Our engineers are encouraged to share their thinking, lessons and solutions both internally and externally

You will work with everything from the front end HTML, CSS and Javascript to the back end RESTful services and underlying database, all hosted in the Cloud. The core tech stack revolves around Java. Front end – we use a modern user interface stack with HTML, CSS, JS and React.

Mobile – Android Studio with Java and Kotlin, Xcode with Objective-C and Swift, Unit testing (JUnit or XCTest), UI testing (Espresso or XCUITest), API development with Java / SpringBoot, AWS.

We’ll give you the latest tech and the opportunities to work with cloud and open source technologies in greenfield projects. We encourage the adoption of new tools and techniques, contributions to the open source community, conferences and keynotes. We encourage you to learn, grow and expand beyond the depth and breadth of your current technical skill set, even moving to work on unfamiliar technologies. And we’ll support you along the way with loads of useful stuff like technical mentoring, accreditation and soft skills training.
