We are very open about how we deliver software - have a look at our QCon presentations or engineering podcasts to see what our developers have been up to. You can also try coding against your own bank account with us using our open APIs (see the developer site)

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. We’re open-minded when it comes to hiring and we care more about aptitude and attitude than specific experience or qualifications. If you care enough to find elegant solutions to difficult technical problems, we’d love to hear from you.

  • Keeping abreast of new technologies and changes in the industry

What we would like from you:

  • Strong understanding of TCP/IP networking and experience with monitoring, network diagnostic and network analytics tools.
  • Experience with Infrastructure as Code and infrastructure provisioning tools (Cloudformation, Terraform).
  • In-depth knowledge of AWS and/or GCP cloud services


  • 33 days holiday (including public hols). You’ll also get your birthday on us

  • Gym membership options
  • Full details are available on our careers site
