Thought Machine, one of the UK’s leading FinTech companies, is undergoing a period of rapid expansion and is looking to hire UX designers to join our expanding applications team.

Our mission is to cure one of the banking industry’s primary problems: it’s reliance on outdated IT infrastructure. Nearly every bank is stuck on a legacy IT platform, which cripples their ability to innovate and give their customers the service they deserve.


Our solution to this is Vault: a complete retail banking platform, capable of being configured easily to suit the needs of any bank. We have built Vault from the ground up as a cloud native, microservice API architecture platform.

Thought Machine is looking for highly talented individuals to grow the company and help us achieve our ambitious goal. We pride ourselves on having an excellent internal culture.


Where we strive to create the best possible working environment; a healthy mix of great technical work, supportive atmosphere and an irreverent sense of fun. We only hire the highest calibre candidates to join our team. While we will ask a lot of you, you will benefit from working in a world-class team and with colleagues who excel.


Thought Machine is growing to become a global technology company. We now need to expand our UX team to ensure that we can deliver a first class experience within our applications.
