Description & Requirements

The Banno Team with Jack Henry & Associates is redefining the relationship between forward-thinking financial institutions and their customers. Banno leverages modern technology and an industry leading product vision to make user-friendly mobile and web apps. We have a first-class API; the same API our web and mobile apps use is the same API that is open to the community to build on top of and extend.

About You

You are infinitely curious and thrive in an environment where you are constantly learning and growing. You want to be somewhere that you are trusted and set up for success every day. You want to be somewhere that surrounds you with other great engineers that drive you to be better every day.

Although you work in a team you are self-motivated and able to work with independence. You want to own the deliverable from working with the product manager to define the scope all the way through supporting your work in production. You care deeply about your work, your team, and the end user.

Banno values trust and those with a bias towards action. We have a remote-first culture that challenges you each day and supports your growth. We are confident you will love it here.

What you and your team are working on

The Scala Engineers participate and works with our team to build Banno’s next generation of services that power a set of critical domains. These services ultimately power Banno’s Open API and our online and mobile banking products. Banno’s APIs are first-class-citizens and are consumed by both internal teams and organizations outside of Banno.

This team is constantly keeping your services up to date with the newest development, deployment and release practices to offer exciting user experiences with highly secured data. Your team also collaborates with other Banno teams to build tools and processes that help scale our rapidly growing platform.

About the Banno team

We are committed to creativity, thoughtfulness, culture, and openness—the perfect place to make phenomenal products that have a big impact. Our work environment echoes a modern tech startup, but we have the security and benefits of a large, publicly traded company.

Our team is highly distributed, meaning you will work with kind, talented teams from across the United States. You’ll get the chance to choose your own tools, work with bleeding edge web technologies across the stack and contribute to products that are used by thousands of people.
