At TrueLayer, we want the financial system to work for everyone — so we've made it our mission to open up access and put fintech at people's fingertips and security is at the foundation of our product.

We are looking for ambitious Security Operations Analysts to shape and mature the Security Operations function at TrueLayer. You will be responsible for identifying existing and emerging threats, vulnerabilities across a wide range of systems and applications; investigating and analysing security events, and responding to incidents.

We aim to empower our engineers with best-in-class technologies and the opportunity to have meaningful impact. You’ll quickly be given hands-on exposure to the latest technologies and practices and entrusted with crucial responsibilities, and will play a key part in our protecting our product as we continue to expand.

Who we are:

At TrueLayer, we’re building a global open banking platform that’s changing how money moves and so much more. We make payments and refunds instant, account data accessible and verification seamless — all so innovators in every industry can build better financial experiences for their users.

To date, we’ve raised $270 million from world-renowned investors including Stripe, Tiger Global, Addition and Tencent. We’ve got offices in London, Milan, Dublin and Sydney. And we’re trusted by industry leaders like Revolut, Cazoo and Trading 212… though we’re not stopping here.

Our vision is a financial system that works for everyone. To make that happen, we’re creating original and innovative products that will remove the friction from finance for good. We’re seriously scaling our infrastructure, we’re entering new territories all the time, we’re cornering a whole new category — and we’d like your help to get us there.
