Thought Machine, one of the UK's leading fintech companies, is undergoing a period of rapid expansion and is looking to hire a Creative Back End Engineer.
Thought Machine is solving one of the biggest problems in banking. Since launching in 2014, our mission has been to liberate banks from outdated, legacy technology which stifles their ability to innovate. Thought Machine’s core product is a cloud native, core banking engine built to run any type of bank - from established Tier 1 banks all the way to new challenger banks.
To move closer to achieving our mission, we are looking for highly talented individuals to join the fast growing team. With a founding team drawn from Google, we have a deep culture of engineering excellence and we believe it is this which delivers a solution compelling enough to engender a seismic shift in the banking industry.
Thought Machine was recognised on LinkedIn’s Top Startups List (2019) and named in Fintech 50 (2019). We pride ourselves on having an excellent internal culture, where we take cultural fit as important as technical fit when we make new hires. At Thought Machine, we strive hard to create a fast-paced, supportive and fun working environment to enable the team to produce the best technical work in the industry.
We are looking to hire a Back End Engineer to join the Thought Machine Labs team. The Labs department within Thought Machine has evolved over the last 5 years and turned into a team of designers and engineers who have access to their own instance of Vault to materialise experiences of the future. These range from applications that help customers pay off their mortgage quicker, through to IoT devices to help children understand pocket money and more recently a game world to help people save money. The cloud native core banking platform of Vault is enabling Labs to communicate a new norm for experiences within the finance industry. The department is increasingly investing in new technologies to experiment with and discover possibilities that go beyond the traditions that plague retail banking today.
We are looking for someone with engineering depth and experience as well as a natural curiosity to want to play and fiddle with projects. You will need to be ready to collaborate with designers and engineers across various disciplines and levels to create transformative products. An autonomous working approach and an open mindset that is sometimes away from standard architectural patterns is valuable to us.
Thought Machine is committed to making a measurable positive impact on people's everyday lives. We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We actively hire for cultural growth. We welcome people of all ages, backgrounds and value people who take a journey unique to them. We provide everyone with equal access to professional development. You are encouraged to apply even if your experience doesn't precisely match the job description.
