We are Banked:

We’re building a global, digital payments network, based on API access to highly secure banking rails, but free from the limitations of their decades old technology and cost model to support it. 

Payments have so far missed out on the cost benefits that come from scale and the innovation potential of the digitisation of all other areas of our lives. With deep partnerships across the ecosystem we’re making real-time payments work for a digital world. We believe moving money + data together is an untapped source of innovation, and will change not only the way we buy things, but the way we live with more useful and relevant experiences. We believe it's what makes us different from other payment providers.

We’ve recently raised our Series A funding for the next phase of our company roadmap, so we’re expanding the engineering team to meet the coming, new challenges.

Software Engineer at Banked 

We're looking for someone who shares our vision, who identifies with our desire to reinvent payments and will help guide us through our growth to directly compete with Visa and Mastercard.

As a Software Engineer at Banked you'll be building our core API products and back-end services. You'll use Go and its ecosystem to deliver event driven, composable and distributed systems that can be consumed either directly by our customers or by other engineers at Banked. You’ll have the chance to work with Senior Software Engineers to expand your experience base while building our core products functionality.

You'll participate in the direction of the company and products, you'll be part of a small team where everyone has a voice.

We don't expect people to be experts with all of the technology we use or to immediately be able to pickup all the tasks we might ask of them. We want to build an environment where people can learn and grow openly, where failure is accepted as a part of learning and there's enough to support to help people be successful.

About you 
  • Solid commercial experience working with Go

  • Experience developing distributed and resilient systems

  • Want to work within a face paced environment where you can upskill

  • Experience in communicating and working with software teams, and working towards building inclusive, fun environments

  • The ability to reason intelligently about complex, uncertain problems and reduce them down to clean, simple abstractions through well designed systems

  • A track record of taking software end-to-end, from inception working alongside product managers and designers to production and beyond

  • A track record of developing for system maintainability and ease of operation

What you'll be doing at Banked
  • Work with other engineers, product managers and designers across the company to prioritise, build, measure and iterate over new features or products

  • Be part of the team responsible for building products for merchants/partners and consumers on top of our new payment network

  • Build services and software that's fast, resilient and and meets our challenging scale, integrity and security needs

  • Build event based, REST based or RPC based interfaces that are consumed by engineers on other teams or by our customers

  • Improve engineering standards, tooling and processes as we grow
