Ebury is a Global FinTech: we apply new technologies to enhance and automate financial services and processes. This allows small and medium-sized businesses to trade and transact internationally by eliminating boundaries related to more traditional procedures. 

Founded in 2009, we are now positioned among the fastest-growing companies in the sector! Headquartered in London, we have more than 1000 staff covering over 50  nationalities (and counting!) working across more than 27 offices worldwide and serving more than 45,000 clients every day. 

Hard work pays off: Ebury has just received a £350 million investment from Banco Santander and has won over 20 internationally recognised awards such as the Growing Business of the Year 2019: Larger Company (Turnover £50m+) and Financial Times: 1000 Europe's Fastest-Growing Companies (which we have been awarded twice: 2017 and 2019!).

None of this would have been possible without what we’re most proud of: our great community. Enthusiastic, disruptive and collaborative teams, always ready to innovate and revolutionize the fast-paced Fintech dimension. 

Your background

    • You have extensive experience in developing complex software systems. We mainly work with Python/Django, but it is also ok if you are more comfortable with other languages. 
    • Since you will work side by side with colleagues from different countries, you will be able to communicate clearly and concisely your ideas in English both written and spoken. 
    • We look for developers that can “build and run” services. Therefore, you will be comfortable with dockerising your code, defining standard REST end points, adding monitoring and alerting your services.
    • Quality is important to us, we expect your code to be testable and well covered with unit and integration tests. We use CI Jenkins pipelines and terraform for the deployment of services and infrastructure. From time to time, you might need to contribute to it.

The project

    • You will contribute to the development of a transactional banking platform, focusing on receiving and issuing payments in more than 140 currencies. 
    • Our platform is a single platform (20+ Services) with 3 distinct channels for users to access our core functionality:

    •  Salesforce.com for our front office staff, 
    • Online banking portal build with Vue.js and 
    • a Rest API for 3rd party integrations.

    • Build and Run services in production. Using tools such as Jenkins, Terraform, Sentry, Prometheus, ELK.. you and your team will be responsible for achieving Service Level Objectives for your code.
    • Work with cross-functional product and technology teams across the company to build new features at large and multi-region scale.
    • All of these run smoothly in Docker containers on AWS ECS and Kubernetes.
