At TrueLayer, we want the financial system to work for everyone — so we've made it our mission to open up access and put fintech at people's fingertips.


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

What we expect from you, as a Senior Backend Engineer:



    Become a proficient user of our platforms (AWS, Kubernetes, Prometheus/Grafana, etc) and our tools (.NET and Rust). Training will be available to fill in any gaps in your current knowledge
    Partner with your Engineering Lead and Product Manager to size and break down requirements for new features and product efforts
    Communicate effectively with both technical and non-technical stakeholders
    Employ design patterns, testing and automation to ensure fast and safe iteration cycles. Use your knowledge to coach your teammates and level up the whole engineering organisation
    Play an active role in our incident response. Support the Incident Lead by taking ownership of investigation and service recovery for the areas of our platform under your responsibility
    Contribute to cross-team technology efforts by joining our engineering guilds
    Role model our values and help make sure TrueLayer remains an exceptional place to work

What you can expect from us:



    A collaborative, transparent environment in which you can be your true self, learn and grow
    Attend conferences and training courses using our learning & development allowance (£1000/yr)
    Flexible hours
    Both remote and office working, with 20% of your time spent in our London office Note: we're 100% remote during the pandemic
    Choice of Linux or Mac technology
    A one-off contribution of £175 to help you set up your home office
    Flexible holiday policy — minimum 24 days. If you need more, just ask
    12 fully-paid wellbeing days a year (on top of your holiday allowance)
    Generous parental leave above and beyond statutory requirements, for either parent ‍‍
    Employer pension contributions of 4%
    Private health insurance and dental cover with Bupa ‍
    Membership of mental wellbeing platform Spill ‍

Compensation


£75,000/yr - £105,000/yr + Equity



Requirements




      Experience building distributed systems in any common backend language/framework such as .NET, Java, Rust and Go
      Thorough understanding of common design patterns and principles, and how/when to apply them
      Familiarity with API design and experience with at least one web framework
      Knowledge of both SQL and NoSQL data technologies
      Understanding of microservice architecture and its associated challenges
      Familiarity with testing best practices — TDD, unit testing and integration testing, etc
      Experience with observability and alerting in mission-critical distributed systems




We'd be particularly excited if you have:



    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

We believe that by seeing the world from all sorts of angles, we can make life better for all the people who live in it. So we want you to know that the things that make you, you — like your age, background and identity — are things that we celebrate and support. All we ask is that you believe in what you do.
