At Tink, we’re creating the foundations that a new iteration of finance will be built on. By constantly challenging ourselves to go further and do better, we’re developing the ground-breaking services that businesses will use, to revolutionise the way millions of people manage their money. The world of financial services is changing fast, and we will continue to be at the forefront of it.
Engineering Foundations builds the infrastructure and services that all other teams at Tink use everyday. This is the Developer Platform that Tink’s 250 engineers use to ship products, and we make sure they can scale in a reliable and performant way.
The teams in Engineering Foundations have ownership of common infrastructure allowing teams to focus on shipping business features. Our problem domains range from message queues and observability to exposing APIs to the internet, building and testing our services as well as providing a stable and flexible runtime environment or scalable data stores.
As a member of one of our teams, you will be working with high load systems with high uptime requirements, giving you lots of opportunities to hone your SRE or developer skillset. We develop our services in Go and Java, we deploy them to Kubernetes in AWS, store our data in MySQL & Cassandra and create our graphs in Grafana - you don’t need to know all this, though!
We believe that the best way to grow as individuals is to grow as a team. We place a lot of value in teams with diverse opinions, skillsets and experiences, we believe this helps our teams thrive and make the best possible decisions. Knowledge sharing is important to us, we want people to grow, gain new skills, have fun and establish best practices together.
