Modulr is one of the UKs leading fintech scale-ups and the #2 fastest growing technology company in the UK, according to D&B. We are looking for a number of software engineers to join our rapidly expanding technology team. You will be part of a scaling business in a high-quality team that is working on new products and features while solving interesting technical challenges. In this role you will work in a cross- functional co-located team who are asked to solve a problem, rather than handed a task to do. This is an excellent opportunity to work in a high-growth environment with a fast- paced and collaborative culture where you will have access to the latest technologies.

We automate payment flows, embed payments within business platforms, and enable customers to build new payment products and services giving them a modern alternative to traditional banks.

We have attracted over £38 million in investment funding including £10m from Banking and Competition Remedies fund as well as venture capital from several firms including PayPal Ventures. Modulr was ranked 18th on LinkedIn’s 2019 Top Start-ups List in UK and we have won multiple awards and listing including Emerging Payments and FinTech50.

We have 9 teams in product and technology who deliver work in an Agile fashion. We use a mix of Agile methods and we don’t favour a particular one; we’d rather be open- minded and honest with what works for us. We prefer self-organising teams who work together to maximise the value we create.
