Coders Connect 💙 are partnering with an exciting start-up 🚀 that are on a mission to help companies launch financial products, as an API-first bank. This incredibly smart concept allows companies of all sizes to connect with banking infrastructures.

As a wholesale and clearing bank, they’re building for scale from day one – the infrastructure has to scale to tens of thousands of requests per second, with all systems fully correct and available. They’ll also need fully-functional integrations with a half-dozen different payment rails such as Faster Payments, Direct Debit, CHAPS, and various card networks.

As an SRE, you’ll be responsible for building, operating and monitoring production infrastructure. As a small startup (the engineering team is currently 5 + CTO), the list of projects is always changing, but the kinds of things you’ll work on include:

  • Configuring AWS using our custom Clojure Infrastructure-as-Code tool
  • Writing Jepsen tests to verify our systems
  • Writing load tests for our systems
  • Writing a tool to take consistent backups and restores of our entire system.
  • Improving our Continuous Deployment pipeline
  • DevSecOps

This is a Clojure shop, and use it in places where other teams might use shell scripting or YAML, so this job is heavy on code.

Technologies: AWS, Clojure, Kafka, Datomic, Kubernetes.

💼 Essentials:

  • 4+ years experience in SRE/DevOps
  • Strong understanding of IP networking
  • Experience with AWS
  • Experience with Docker
  • A desire to work with small teams in fast-paced start-up environments.
  • Experience in either Clojure or another functional language

Experience with Kafka, Datomic, Kubernetes preferred, but not required


  • 25 days off a year + bank holidays
  • Tax-advantaged stock options under HMRC’s Company Share Option Plan (CSOP)
  • Flexible working
  • Private medical insurance through AXA
  • Private life insurance through AIG
