Who we are

In the last 10 years, Mambu has been revolutionising banking - making it more accessible, more straightforward and more inclusive.  We provide cloud-based, composable API banking solutions and are on a mission to make banking better for over a billion people around the globe.  With fresh funding secured and a near-€5 billion valuation, we have big ambitions..!

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.

This is just the beginning. We 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.

  • Expert knowledge of infrastructure, platform, software security design patterns, software architecture and associated security principles; cloud security architecture (we operate across AWS, Azure, GCP); microservices security; IAM;API security, cryptography, threat modelling and secure software development,with a proactive attitude to continuous learning to stay abreast of digital innovations.
  • Proven track record of designing, building, maturing and scaling security architecture capabilities and oversight in cloud-first organisations and a deep understanding of how to articulate relevant strategic roadmaps in a compelling, customer-focused way.
  • Visionary thinker, an advocate for innovation, with a deep understanding of how to continually evolve Mambu’s security architecture, practices and controls in line with evolving threats and changing business focus.
