A digital, mobile-only challenger bank based in the United Kingdom, operating current accounts, business banking.

Description

This is banking - but not as you know it.

Starling Bank is a digital challenger bank providing the first mobile-only UK current account. Building our bank from scratch has allowed us to place technology at our core and fully connect customers to their finances. Our vision is to give customers clarity and control over their money in order to provide everyone with the opportunity to enjoy a healthy financial life.

  • We are looking for fantastic technologists from a variety of backgrounds and with a range of skills to join a small, dynamic and agile team of technologists, entrepreneurs, designers, brand and customer experts with a flat structure in building a next generation bank. We’re building from scratch and are using the latest in technology to create a bespoke experience, delivered through your phone.
  • We’re super collaborative, working in cross-functional teams alongside product and business partners to deliver an experience our customers will love. So as well as working with product managers and UX designers, you could be working with marketers, designers, and most importantly our customer service team.
  • We have built our own banking system and have our own full ‘technology stack.’ Our development approach is agile-based, enabling rapid software upgrades and we are one of the first banks completely in the Cloud using Amazon Web Services. Our engineers are committed to keeping up with Apple and Android developments and delivering our updates efficiently to both systems.

Have a look at our GitHub to see what our developers have been up to, and our Roadmap to see what we are looking to develop and deliver in the next 12 months! You can also see what was created from our first Hackathon which gave over 100 people the chance to come and flex their developer muscles. Our open APIs are unique in the banking world and create exciting opportunities for integration with other FinTechs such as Flux, Habito, Wealthify, PensionBee and more through the Starling Marketplace.

Could you see yourself here? We’d love to hear from you.

Starling Bank is the first UK licenced digital challenger bank:

...to be built from scratch and launch a PSD2-ready API for third-party fintech companies

...to use 100% cloud based technologies

...to be connected to the Current Account Switching Service (CASS)

...to become a full member of the Faster Payments Scheme

...to offer in-app provision of Apple Pay

No boundaries; one team.

We are a fintech business with a banking licence – we have all the excitement and flexibility of a start-up tech company, combined with the responsibility of a bank.

Our diverse team is made up of people from all over the world, different backgrounds, and ages. Our belief in equality and diversity travels right through Starling. Signing up to the Women in Finance charter, committed to 30% of women in Senior Management by 2021, takes us one step further in our commitment to gender equality in finance. We hope that our attitude and mindset of inclusivity and transparency will encourage others to do the same.
