Who is Frankie?

Legacy systems are the largest problem plaguing financial services. Frankie Financial is a fast paced VC backed fintech looking to solve this problem by connecting all the compliance and risk providers in a single platform and providing a single vendor agnostic unified view. This is a huge undertaking and hence we’re seeking to grow our team and recruit an equally passionate Golang developer to help develop our infrastructure.

Developers at Frankie

We’re building banking infrastructure and require assistance in developing our core and connecting suppliers into our system.

Building comprehensive tests for all your code and using go modules to manage your dependencies should be automatic for you. Working with CI/CD tools like Jenkins is second nature to you, as is using Docker to containerise your build.

We are hardworking, open-minded and passionate about crafting great products and delivering real value for our customers.
