A thriving SaaS business built by like-minded individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences, and it’s because of this that we’re able to challenge the way the financial services operate today.

  • Efficiency in Python fundamentals, OOP and security considerations
  • Solid ability in applying financial mathematics
  • Enquiring mind, relishing complex mathematical and technical challenges
  • Experience in developing and maintaining large, critical software libraries
  • Comfortable working with VCS (including using git, code reviews, etc.)


Ideally you will already have (if not, you will acquire on the job)

  • Strong SQL knowledge and understanding of databases
  • Strong understanding of Docker and Jenkins
  • Knowledge of RESTful APIs - both for using first/third party APIs or libraries and building your own for first/third party consumption
