11:FS Foundry: Building Banks Fit For The Future

Ever wondered about the difference between a digital and a digitised financial services? We have.

Creating digital, not digitised, financial services is hard. That’s why digital banking is only 1% finished.The remaining 99% is harder still. A set of capabilities is needed to match the aspirations, but no such system exists. So we’ve built it ourselves: welcome to 11:FS Foundry. A modular, ledger-first set of components that allow you to build fully digital propositions to scale and at speed, no longer held back by legacy infrastructure and complexity.

Our people, focussed on your business. We’ve assembled a team whose experience of transactional, payments and ledger-based interaction models goes beyond banking, combining best practices and expertise from Nutmeg, Betfair, Klarna, Twitter, Spotify and others, all coming together under the leadership of industry veteran Leda Glyptis.

DNB, Norway’s biggest bank, has invested in 11:FS Foundry as a partner, as well as its first client.

This is the start of something we believe will change the industry for the better, one deployment at a time.

What you'll be doing, ????????We are looking for skilled back end engineers to work with our product, design and operations teams to help build out our next generation banking platforms. Responsible for creating the low level platform and core banking services you will help power our web, mobile and IOT/blockchain user interfaces and clients through our REST APIs.

We know that building high performance, highly scalable, always available, fault tolerant systems is a team game and so we want to know that you play well with others. Lone geniuses are brilliant - just not for us.

We strongly believe that you grow a system, rather than build it, so our architecture and infrastructure is designed to allow us to roll small bits of code to production really fast. And really often. At a minimum we want to see that you have experience of working in cloud based, continuous deployment type environments and that you can demonstrate that you understand that with this awesome power comes a lot of responsibility to make sure you are doing things right. We are mainly interested in making sure you have the right behaviours by default but we would also love to see you have good experience of using schedulers like Kubernetes, Mesos/Marathon and containers like Docker.

Technical Skills:

Strong Scala or JVM experience Object Orientated Programming Functional Programming API’s RESTful applications and microservices ScalaTest BDD/TDD CI/CD NoSQL/SQL Applying cyber security best practice Infrastructure tools – AWS, Kafka, Elasticsearch, Docker, Kubernetes, Mesos/Marathon Other Skills:

Agile software development experience (lives and breathes agile, rather than I know something about it) Team player (the team is bigger than the individual) Ability to thrive in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial, high-energy environment Self-starter Ability to be flexible and pragmatic with technology decisions Understanding product focussed software development i.e. principals such as minimum viable product Good communication skills Ability to admit it when you are wrong and learn from it Taking ownership Independence and self-motivation while still being able to work with others collaboratively Desire to always learn new things Curious wants to know how things work at a deep technical level Positivity and drive Resilient when things don’t always go well Commits and delivers Finally, we know you get this, but guarantee your place on the team and make yourself stand out by telling us all about all those “character building” experiences you have gained through having to live with the systems that you have built. Show us your battle scars and explain to us what operational insights and learnings you have gained by having to trouble shoot issues at some horrible time in the morning and what you put in place to make sure that particular issue didn’t bite you again. Expect us to ask about how you trouble shoot issues and demonstrate, with actions, that you understand that ops and quality assurance is EVERYONE’s job and not someone else’s’.

If you build it, you will run it so do a good job!

Simple, build a banking platform which will improve the lives of millions of business people. Time to give back that stellar experience and talent you have learnt so far and contribute in making a change in this world! Quote, CTO Ewan Silver.

Some of the things we deem benefits? ????♛????11:FS is just 2 years old and whilst we are a startup, we don't behave like one at most times. So think Flexible Working, competitive salary/day rate, and the autonomy to enable you to help shape the destiny of this great company. You'll be joining us to work with one of THE BEST teams in financial services. And this goes to saying that we have an outstanding team of company leaders, project leaders and subject matter of experts in every division you come into.

You only live once, make it count
