Starling engineers love building things, creating new stuff, learning new technologies and working with others across all areas of the business to bring brilliant products and features to life. Don’t just take our word for it: we’ve been voted Best British Bank for two years running.

We focus on achieving specific outcomes and teams are empowered to do what’s necessary to deliver them. In their jobs everyone gets the chance to determine priorities and own interesting things from day one - this is what makes us different.

When it comes to hiring, we focus on aptitude and attitude rather than specific experience or qualifications. We encourage our people to try new things and experiment, creating a culture of innovation which differentiates us from others. The work we do here is shaping the future.

quotes

As a Starling engineer, I work on projects that directly impact the user experience of our customers, as well as how they manage their money and interact with their bank. What I really love is the freedom and responsibility to manage my own projects and time. I feel trusted and empowered to prioritise tasks, and I am learning new things all the time."

Building a better bank

Starling is technology-led. As a Starling engineer, you’ll have a lot of freedom to accomplish your goals in the way you want. We have no estimates, no story points, no t-shirt sizes. You’re responsible for developing, deploying, and maintaining the code, as well as supporting features and products in production using our service-based cloud architecture.

Working in engineering at Starling means deploying code daily. You’ll be working out how to deliver new banking features in a way that ensures the security and reliability of the system. We’re offering you a hugely exciting challenge - to join our team as we scale up towards having millions of accounts.
