At TrueLayer, we want the financial system to work for everyone โ€” so we've made it our mission to open up access and put fintech at people's fingertips.

Our Engineering organization has grown substantially over the past 12 months - our tools and processes have not kept up with the pace.

We are spinning up a new team, Engineering Ops, focused on the ergonomics and effectiveness of our platform. The mission is broad: boost the impact that every single engineer can have at TrueLayer.

In addition to working with modern development tools and cloud technologies, we are committed to helping you develop new skills and advance in your career. Whether you want to continue to grow your technical expertise or move into leadership, we have clear and tangible paths for everyone, irrespective of your level of experience, role or discipline.
