Thought Machine is solving one of the biggest problems in banking – modernising core systems. Since launching in 2014, our mission has been to liberate banks from outdated, legacy technology which stifles their ability to innovate. Thought Machine’s product, Vault, is a cloud native, core banking engine built to run any type of bank – from established Tier 1 banks to new challenger banks.

To move closer to achieving our mission, we are looking for highly talented individuals to join the fast growing team. With a founding team drawn from Google, we have a deep culture of engineering excellence and we believe our product focus and pursuit of excellence will engender a seismic shift in the banking industry.
