Starling Bank is a leading digital bank on a mission to disrupt the banking industry. They have built an app with smart money management tools to help customers live a healthier financial life. They also offer groundbreaking B2B banking and payments services.
Since its launch in 2014, Starling Bank has surpassed 2.5 million accounts in total: including 400,000 business accounts for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Their total deposits, meanwhile, have surpassed £7 billion over the same period (impressive stuff, right?)
They are a fully licensed UK bank, with the culture and spirit of a fast-moving, disruptive technology company. They’ve won the Best British Bank award four years running, and now employ more than 1,700 people across their London, Southampton and Cardiff offices.
Starling Bank is an equal opportunity employer, and they are proud of their ongoing efforts to foster diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Individuals seeking employment at Starling Bank are considered without regard to race, religion, national origin, age, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, marital status, medical condition, ancestry, physical or mental disability, military or veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by applicable law.
The good news? Starling Bank has a number of really exciting open positions at the moment, from Data Science to Customer Service, and everything in between. Check them out now!
Klarna was founded in 2005 in Stockholm, Sweden with the aim of making it easier for people to shop online. In the last 15 years, technology has evolved, excited, and transformed the world around us, yet their mission remains as relevant as ever – to make paying as simple, safe and above all, smooth as possible.
Klarna is now one of Europe’s largest banks and is providing payment solutions for 90 million consumers across more than 250,000 merchants in 17 countries. Klarna offers direct payments, pay after delivery options and installment plans in a smooth one-click purchase experience that lets consumers pay when and how they prefer to.
At Klarna, they’re in the middle of what they call their ‘moment’. They are revolutionising shopping, payments, and banking. And the world is taking note. But it doesn’t come easy. They have to be brave enough to take risks. Bold enough to fail. And, unreasonable enough to accept nothing but the best.
In the years since their founding, they have become Europe's highest valued private fintech (and 4th highest worldwide). And they’re growing their turnover by 40 per cent each year. Which makes trying new things out and the freedom to explore not just a reality. But a necessity. Today, they have over 5,000 employees and hire more than 3,000 people a year - and you could be one of them! Their offices are spread over 3 continents and are staffed by 100+ nationalities. And their shared experience is one that is as diverse and collaborative as it is impactful, dependable, and rewarding.
At Monzo, they’re building a new kind of bank. One that lives on a user’s smartphone and is built for the way we live today. By solving problems, treating people fairly and being totally transparent, Monzo believes they can make banking better. Monzo is a bank you'd be proud to use - and that means bringing together a talented team with diverse experiences, backgrounds and skills. They believe there should be an alternative to the banking of the past: and they’re focused on solving problems, rather than selling financial products, making financial life simpler, and giving users total control from their smartphone.
Internally, Monzo encourages an open, collaborative, inclusive working environment. They contribute to open source software, and continually engage with their wonderful community. They’re hiring talented, creative problem-solvers to help them build the bank of the future.
Less than 5 minutes walk from Liverpool Street, they are a team of just over 1600 people building a bank. They take care of everything from regulation, to app development, to card distribution, and more, so there really is a role for everyone. Check them out here now...
