Job Description

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 and Dublin. And we’re trusted by industry leaders like Revolut, Coinbase and Nutmeg… 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 areas all the time, we’re cornering a whole new category — and we’d like your support to get us there.

Description

** THIS ROLE IS 20% OFFICE-BASED IN EITHER MILAN OR LONDON**

We’re looking for Engineers who love learning new things and working with others to solve complex customer problems. You’ll be at the heart of financial innovation, using industry-disrupting technologies like open banking to revolutionise online payments and enable financial data to be integrated into any app or website.

Working at a rapidly growing fintech, you’ll encounter new and exciting challenges as we scale our products and infrastructure to meet the demands of our customers, and expand our ecosystem to open up new possibilities. Guided by our Engineering Principles, you’ll collaborate on the design, implementation, delivery and operation of our products — in short: you’ll build it, you’ll run it!

In addition to working with modern development frameworks 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.

Our challenges

  • We want to continuously iterate and improve our offering without compromising the stability or long-term maintainability of our systems.
  • We serve millions of API requests with a 99.5% availability SLA. Our platform must remain a reliable foundation that our customers can build upon as we expand (new products, new geographies, more volume).
  • We want TrueLayer to be an exceptional place to work. We want our processes and interactions to stay honest, genuine and human as the company grows.
  • We want our engineers to grow with us. To have the opportunity, the guidance and the support to develop their technical and core skills to the fullest within the organisation.

  • The interest on getting experience in our platforms (AWS, Kubernetes, Prometheus/Grafana, etc) and our tools (.NET and Rust), based on the team tech stack. Training will be available to boost your current knowledge
  • Collaborate within your team with your Product Manager, Engineering Manager and colleagues to iterate fast on product development
  • Aim to communicate effectively with both technical and non-technical stakeholders
  • Follow the rest of the team to deliver in fast and safe iteration cycles promoting maintainability, testing and automation
  • Build an opinion on operational readiness helping the team to maintain dashboards and alerting systems
  • Embrace the open feedback culture, actively reviewing code and accepting feedback in order to maximise the team learning
  • Align with our values and help make sure TrueLayer remains an exceptional place to work

Requirements

  • Familiarity with a common backend language/framework such as .NET, Java, Rust and Go
  • Basic understanding of API design and limited experience with at least one web framework
  • Exposure to at least one SQL or NoSQL database technology
  • Interest in testing best practices — TDD, unit testing and integration testing.

We’d be particularly excited if you have:

  • Interest in observability and alerting in mission-critical distributed systems
  • Understanding of protocol buffers, gRPC, and message queue systems
  • Experience building libraries and involvement in open source software
  • Hands-on experience with AWS and infrastructure-as-code tools such as Terraform

    The FlexScore® is the result of a rigorous 2-step verification of a company’s flexibility

    First we assess the flexibility options TrueLayer provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure TrueLayer is as flexible as they say they are. Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.

    We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.
