Projects description

Digital Bank in Saudi Arabia. You will be embracing 12 factor app philosophies and driving key deliverables to our applications and services. We believe in codification (Infrastructure and Configuration as code), automation, immutability, CI/CD and scalability — all for the benefit of our customers and users within a secure and continuously compliant environment.

Being the first ever startup in the digital banking space in Saudi Arabia, we are progressing at a rapid speed. Things are happening and happening often. Building greatness in a disruptive era requires strong ambition, talent, curiosity, diversity of thought and a belief that we’re better together. We want our colleagues to grow whilst with us so we’ve created an environment that encourages everyone to learn, challenge each other and create extraordinary experiences for themselves, their colleagues and our customers. Trust, Respect and Opportunity is key, and we’re very keen to show that in practice not just in written policy.

The size and the structure of the PROJECT team

Our Engineering Team is now growing consisting of Senior Software Developers, DevSecOps Engineers, Architects and Designers who are responsible for the end-to-end ownership of our platform, from architecture through to infrastructure. Individually they are all exceptional at what they do, but by working collaboratively within a team, consistently applying best-practice and automating absolutely everything they are able to build world-class software for our customers. This is a completely greenfield project, a fully funded cutting edge startup that will require you to muck in with every aspect of our delivery lifecycle. Sometimes you might be working closely with the DevSecOps engineering teams, other times with the PO’s and other times with external parties defining integration mechanisms. We don’t mind where our Developers are based as we are happy for our team to work from anywhere in the UK, EU or GCC, with most of them choosing to work remotely most of the time. We encourage our colleagues to participate in regular (as often as possible) meet-ups with the rest of the team worldwide. We find this builds the effective working relationships that are otherwise missing with fully remote teams.

What technologies do we use on our projects?

Our tech-stack is continually evolving but to give you a flavour of what we’re currently working with here are some of the tools we use;

Languages: Go, Java (micronaut), Swift, Kotlin, Python

Tools: Kubernetes, Terraform, Docker, Vault, Consul, istio, private cloud, ArgoCD, EFK, Prometheus, Grafana, Firebase Methodologies: Agile, Scrum, Kanban, TDD, BDD, Pair-Programming
