About Griffin
Finance is only relevant in context. People don't take out a loan in order to take out a loan; they take out a loan to refurbish a home, expand their business to a new location, or otherwise achieve a goal that happens to require a substantial amount of money.

Technology is increasingly enabling companies to embed finance at the point where it is most relevant and contextual. This is a trend that is well under way, and we're heading towards a future where people and firms get most of their financial services and products from technology companies and other non-bank firms, rather than high street banks.

The problem is that bringing a financial product to market is still incredibly hard.

Griffin exists to help make it easy for companies to offer financial products. We are currently seeking authorisation to become a bank, so that we can provide accounts, payments and loans to our customers.

Culture
We are highly intentional about our culture, and look to define it both by who we are (core values) and by how we work (core behaviours). We won't hire people who aren't a good fit for our culture, even if they're otherwise qualified.

We're looking for thoughtful people who don't give up easily and who strive to be kind in their words and actions. As product designers, we are always looking for ways to simplify complex things and we take security very seriously. As a financial institution, we believe that our customers' trust is our single most valuable asset and we will go above and beyond to earn and keep it. We are transparent by default.

You can learn more about our culture and values on our website.
The Engineering Team:

As with most of the company the engineering team is still in it's infancy. We have grown quickly within the last year to our current team size of 14 which is made up of the CTO, VP of Engineering and 12 engineers split across backend, infrastructure and fullstack specialisations.

Rather than "move fast and break things", we aim to move thoughtfully and to make few mistakes. We are an output-driven environment that operates with extreme autonomy; people are free to keep their own hours and we don't micro-manage each other.

Our backend stack is Clojure, Kafka, Datomic, Kubernetes and AWS

Our frontend stack is CLJS, Reframe, Reagent, React, Stitches, Storybook, and Playroom
Who are you?

The ideal candidate for this job will have most of the following:

Ideally at least 2 years professional experience.
Some professional functional programming experience.
Either a very strong distributed systems background or a healthy amount of full-stack exposure (i.e. experience integrating front and backends directly).
Experience collaborating with Product Managers and UX/UI Designers to build products that solve customer needs

Nice to haves

Experience with the other parts of our stack (Kafka, Kube, AWS, Datomic).
Relevant domain experience in payments or core banking systems.
Experience working with small teams, ideally in fast-paced start-up environments.

What will you be doing here?

As a backend engineer you'll be responsible for building out one of our core product pillars, which handle core banking, compliance, accounts, and transactions. As a (hopefully soon-to-be) wholesale and clearing bank, we're building for scale from day one - our infrastructure has to scale to tens of thousands of requests per second, with all systems fully correct and available. We'll also need fully-functional integrations with a half-dozen different payment rails such as Faster Payments, Direct Debit, CHAPS, and various card networks.

What can we offer you?
We are an early stage startup and we're working hard to expand our benefits package. We're planning to add to this list in the future

25 days off a year + bank holidays
Flexible, remote-friendly working - including supporting home office setup
Tax-advantaged stock options under HMRC's Company Share Option Plan (CSOP)
Auto-enrolment into company pension scheme
Enhanced parental leave with up to 6 months at full pay
Private medical insurance and life insurance (provided by AXA and AIG respectively)
A weekly team lunch on Griffin (even when you're working remotely)

How do I apply?
Please include a cover letter, a resume and a link to your online portfolio where appropriate. We cannot review applications without these. If there's a match our Talent team will reach out to schedule an initial conversation and talk you through our interview process in detail

N.B: We have a small London office in Moorgate, and we are comfortable hiring people to work from anywhere in the UK. About half of the company is based within occasional commuting distance of London, the other half is full-time remote.

If youโ€™re part of a group that is under-represented or marginalised in fintech, weโ€™d love to hear from you. Our goal is for Griffin to proportionally represent the diversity of the working population in society. Weโ€™re working to ensure that Griffin is a supportive, empowering and inclusive environment for every member of our team โ€” whatever your intersection of identities & background.
