At Monese we believe that access to banking and financial services is a right that everybody should enjoy. We are on a mission to ensure that anyone in the world who needs a bank account can get one. By using leading edge technology via smartphones, we offer services that are easy to access, simple to use and cheap to run for anybody.
The first Monese product already serves tens of thousands of customers in the UK and Europe, and we are adding new services on a regular basis.
Our fast-growing team is located in London, UK and Tallinn, Estonia. By working with us, you will be part of a carefully selected team who are great at what they do and share the belief in our mission of making banking available to everybody. We’re not just a start-up with an idea; we have a proven business model that is growing exponentially and generates strong revenues.
About the role
We opened our doors 2 years ago. Obviously - we have systems working, databases up and running. But this is a start-up – i.e. we add functionality, polish stuff, expand and grow fast (clients, transactions etc.). So far, our awesome Engineering team has been planning the architecture of databases and optimised these. But you probably know there is a moment this kind of systems badly need a dedicated geek with experience to take over and own it.
So, now we are looking for a talented Database Architect to make sure our mission critical systems are up and running, and several aspects are taken care of:
Buzzwords: PostgreSQL, AWS, RDS, cloud, sharding, Linux
We are looking for:
What we consider a plus:
Benefits of working at Monese:
Monese enables anyone to open a local banking account on-demand, anywhere in Europe - with nothing but their mobile.
Monese provides instant on-demand banking accounts regardless of the customer's citizenship. It was born after founder’s first-hand experience of the hassle involved with opening a bank account in a new country. The company has developed a sophisticated technology platform which can validate customer identity in realtime. Accounts can be opened using the company’s mobile app in under 3 minutes with or without a local address or good credit history. This revolutionises banking for expats and new residents as ‘residency restrictions’ imposed by traditional high street banks are one of the single greatest barriers to accessing the banking system when they arrive in a new country. Monese was designed from the ground up with a focus on creating a more frictionless day-to-day banking experience. It’s fully-featured banking account comes with cheap global payments and a contactless debit card. Monese has a real chance to make a difference to many lives by democratising the access to modern banking services.
