Job Details

TrueLayer's Data Products team builds products that reduce the friction and cost involved in financial transactions, using data. Our data products power many of the most widely-used fintech apps in Europe today - from personal budgeting tools to online lending to onboarding for all kinds of companies. We do this by allowing clients to retrieve financial data securely and quickly, with millions of API calls being made every day.

In 2020 we doubled the number of our connections to financial institutions across the UK and Europe. As we continue to grow, we're looking to find new ways to help our clients provide a first class experience for their users. To do this we're continuing to optimise machine learning models models trained on millions of rows of transaction data, scale services that process millions of API calls every day and improve our frontend components so that hundreds of thousands of users can easily connect their accounts every day.

To achieve this we use best-in-class technologies including C#/.Net Core for development, Docker containers orchestrated with Kubernetes, AWS cloud infrastructure, ElasticSearch, Prometheus for observability, RabbitMQ, Redis, Postgres and more.

Who We AreAt TrueLayer, we build intelligent financial infrastructure that puts fintech at people's fingertips.

Businesses use our global network, built on open banking and PSD2, to securely access financial data and enable instant payments. Headquartered in London with offices in Milan, Dublin, Sydney, and Hong Kong, we've raised $72M to date and we're trusted by some of the biggest names in tech, including Revolut, Trading 212, and Zopa.

We are systems builders, design thinkers, product crafters and committed doers. We work in a collaborative, transparent environment where people can be their true selves, embrace ownership and accountability, and build something that will define an industry.

Our vision is to create a financial ecosystem that is open to everyone. We've grown from a UK leader in 2020 to a global provider in 2021, operating in 12+ countries. The thing is, we're just getting started...
