iO is currently partnering with the one of the Top 10 companies in the '100 FinTech Disrupters ranking for 2020' and they are looking for a Principal Software Engineer to join them.

They are storming ahead of the traditional banks in a specific area of banking; their core product is a cloud-based platform which allows any third party to get access to the full UK clearing system through an API plugin, which is an infrastructure that allows for payments in real-time.

Their aim is to become the dominant underlying platform used for clearing by all financial institutions, including the high street giants - and they are already succeeding in that, looking to their next exciting projects/products.

This company's tech stack is Microsoft Azure/C#.Net - so you'll need to bring a solid, relevant hands-on technical background with you, even though this role itself is hands-off.

You will be instrumental in the continued growth of one the best and most innovative companies in the UK.
