.NET Engineer (Open Banking) (5312)

Investec is a distinctive Specialist Bank serving clients principally in the UK and South Africa. Our culture gives us our edge: we work hard to find colleagues who'll think out of the ordinary and we put them in environments where they'll flourish. We combine a flat structure with a focus on internal mobility. If you can bring an entrepreneurial spirit and a desire to learn and collaborate to your work, this could be the boost your career deserves.

Research shows that some candidates can be reluctant to apply to a role unless they meet all the criteria. We pride ourselves on our entrepreneurial spirit here and welcome you to do the same – if the role excites you, please don't let our person specification hold you back. Get in touch!

Embedded in our culture is a sense of belonging and inclusion. This creates an environment in which everyone is free to express themselves and helps drive innovation and creativity. At Investec we want everyone to find it easy to be themselves, and to feel they belong. It's a responsibility we all share and is integral to our purpose and values as an organisation.

Role: .NET Engineer (Open Banking)

Location: London

Team Description

Our team has a mission to provide best in class products and services for companies within a growing but under-served market from a digital perspective.  This gives us a real opportunity to make a difference for our clients and users, to really simplify how they do business and to come up with innovative solutions for their problems.  The platform itself is still relatively young and that also brings a lot of opportunity for anyone joining us to have a real influence on how it grows and evolves into something we can all be proud of. You'll be working with a team that values diversity in all forms and focuses on psychology safety so you can bring your whole self to work every day.

What new technology can you learn about at Investec?

Here are the main technologies we use to power Investec in the cloud:

  • C# to write our backend code
  • TypeScript with Angular and React for building our frontends
  • Azure for our infrastructure in the cloud
  • EventGrid, EventHub and ServiceBus for sending messages
  • MS SQL Server and CosmosDB for storing our data
  • Terraform and Azure Bicep for our infrastructure as code

Description of role and key responsibilities

We are looking for a full stack developer with backend focus to drive the build out of our Open Banking API products. The focus will initially be on building out the regulated (PSD2) Open Banking APIs for our new Business Current Account as well as maintain the current Open Banking APIs in the Private Client space:

  • Account Information API - allows regulated third parties to access account and transactional information (read-only) of an Investec UK Private Banking client.
  • Payment Initiation - allows regulated third parties to make payments directly from the account of an Investec UK Private Banking client that uses their products and services.
  • Confirmation of funds - allows a Card Based Payments Instrument Issuer (CBPII) to confirm that an Investec UK Private Banking client has enough funds available to make a payment.

On the longer term this is a great opportunity to work on commercially driven Open API propositions beyond regulatory requirements. This role will initially sit under within the Private Companies, but this may change in future as our API portfolio grows.
