Who we are

In the last 10 years, Mambu has been revolutionising banking - making it more accessible, more straightforward and more inclusive for everyone. With fresh funding secured and a near €5 billion valuation we have huge ambitions for ourselves and the whole banking sector. 


We bring this same sense of innovation and aspiration to how we support our people. We pioneered the 4 day summer work week, have announced the provision of equity for all and launched Our Mambu Deal to capture how we work with each other and what we offer all Mambuvians.


These are just the beginning. We’ll continue to look for ways to make Mambu an even better place to work.

We’re not here to play it safe. 

We’re here to change the world.


About the team

We strive to provide a reliable self-service platform (infrastructure context) where product teams can  provision components they need without  interruption, using  multi-cloud offerings, ensuring that we deliver consistent services across any cloud. 

The context of scale - when we speak about our existing platform, we mean hundreds of kubernetes, kafka and elastic search clusters with thousands of mysql and postgresql instances.

What you’ll do

  • ensure that the Mambu Cloud Platform is highly available, performs consistently, the infrastructure can scale without any downtime.
  • care deeply about building better solutions for our customers and each other, about doing something that’s never been done before. 
  • enable development teams to autonomously make use of the platform to deliver product features at a higher pace, using automation wherever possible.
  • learn new things and share knowledge and best practices to the team and organisation to improve delivery, ensure accessibility and observability of Mambu Cloud Platform. 
  • lead and coach team members to the victory, making sure we continuously grow our technical and organisational capabilities.

What you’ll bring

  • You know how to design, build, secure and support platforms at scale for product & infrastructure stacks - with both open source and proprietary solutions.
  • You have experience automating infrastructure changes using Terraform and building pipelines. Infrastructure as Code (IaC) and GitOps operating model is second nature for you.
  • You have a deep understanding of cloud native applications and distributed systems.
  • You know how to find your way around (preferably in multiple) public cloud providers including managed Kubernetes services and microservices implementations. (This is not an Ops position, however the goal is to create engineering solutions that create painless operational experience)
  • You are familiar with change, incident management practices and know what on-call duties are.
  • You are OK automating stuff using Go and/or Python.
  • On top of it, you:
    • have a proven experience with managing applications on Kubernetes
    • have a good knowledge of Linux systems
    • have a sound understanding of Public Cloud networking concepts with a focus on network security fundamentals and Kubernetes service meshes

Your colleagues would say: 

  • You love working in a team, nurturing product technical excellence & high quality
  • You understand Agile methodologies inside out and embrace change rather than shunning it. You work well with other people, see the value of a team, and want to remain a partner for
  • You want to make a difference, hone your skills and experiment with new and unconventional tech solutions!
  • You’re not satisfied with what’s already available and have the ambition to revise and improve things.

Your future

We pioneered the 4 day working week between June - August many years ago, and continue to innovate around how work should feel and how it should get done.
