At TrueLayer we believe in opening up finance. That includes taking the innovation at the edges of finance and make it available to everyone. The R&D team is in charge of taking the “moonshots” for the company and quickly assess their viability as products.

The R&D is a brand new division in charge of quickly prototyping and assess viability of products that don’t sit in any future roadmaps of the current teams.

The initial focus of R&D team is going to be the cryptocurrencies space, with an array of products that would bridge our Open Banking capabilities with the latest innovation in crypto.

You will have the chance to spearhead a complete new business greenfield, opening a brand new product line for the company with massive opportunities for innovation, while experimenting with bleeding edge technologies in the payments / identity space.

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.
