Senior .Net Engineer (6101)

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.

Embedded in our culture is a sense of belonging and inclusion. This creates an environment in which everyone is free to be themselves which helps to drive innovation, creativity and ultimately business performance. 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.

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!

We are looking for experience engineers to join our team to build a brand-new Transactional Banking Platform for our private and corporate clients to help them manage their money more effectively. We're a new team and are looking for curious and passionate engineers to help us figuring out how to build a next generation banking platform. We're working closely with our partner Monese to build our bank accounts on top of their new banking as a service platform.

Our APIs will power the mobile and web applications our customers use to manage their bank accounts. The Account Services platform integrates into our payments, CRM, reconciliation, reporting and treasury systems.

We work primarily on backend systems, using and interacting with both event-based architectures as well as APIs. We're largely azure native, and place great importance on the experience of interacting with and reliability of our budding platform for our consumers in the organisation. If this sounds like something you'd like to be involved in we'd love to hear from you.


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:

As a part of the Digital and Technology strategy at Investec, we're driving to modernise, rethink and partner with exciting partners to leverage their experience and technology to really drive growth in the organisation. What does this mean for account services? Well:

  • We're building a platform organisation, and one of the platforms will be Account Services.
  • We're interacting with our partner Monese, who are building a Banking as a Service offering and we're the first consumers.
  • We're modernising the lay of the Investec estate, moving what has traditionally been on-site, monolithic applications serving a specific area of the business that are very, very difficult to make meaningful change within, into an integrated, cloud based, partnered integration that can be a component part of products for multiple teams in the organisation.
  • We're doing more than just providing APIs. We're working closely with client-aligned streams around their requirements in each of their products, meaning we'll be involved in refining and delivering the functionality that ends up on our clients screens and in their pockets.

Core skills and knowledge:

  • you're a software engineer at heart and you're enjoy writing code to solve problems
  • you're curious about new technologies and how the financial industry works
  • you're comfortable working in a team that deals with ambiguity
  • you hold yourself and others to a high bar when working with production systems
  • you thrive in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts
  • you have strong experience building backend software
  • you're interested in distributed systems and writing resilient, scalable and secure software
  • you have experience building software in a statically typed language (C#, Java, Go etc.)
  • you enjoy and have experience building APIs

Any other attributes that would be helpful, but not essential for the role:

  • you're familiar with how to build applications in Azure
  • you have experience building event driven architectures
  • you have some experience building web applications using Angular or React
