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. 

Senior Full-Stack 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.

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

As a Senior Full-Stack Engineer at Banked you'll be working on products that power our payment network. You'll work on back-end services and APIs and front-end web applications and SDKs.

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 support to help people be successful.

This role is for our Product engineering team, which builds the customer facing products that power our new payment network.

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

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

  • Strong working experience working with JavaScript, HTML, CSS and Restful APIs

  • Experience working with modern Javascript development tools and test frameworks

  • Familiarity with modern browser APIs and the web platform

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

  • Experience working with distributed systems and its challenges

  • A passion for learning and growth, picking up new skills and tool

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

  • Build APIs and services that reliably deliver functionality to our customers

  • Build elegant interfaces which will be hosted by us, embeddable by our clients and integratable as components; focusing on on web performance and accessibility

  • Improve engineering standards, tooling and processes as we grow

  • Be part of the team evolving architecture and design of our software stack

  • Mentor and help grow your peers and junior engineers, as well as be open to feedback and mentoring from those around you
