The purpose of this role is twofold:

We are Tandem - Where impact meets innovation 
Tandem is the UK's greener digital bank on a bold quest to revolutionise the way we save, borrow, spend, and share – all while nurturing our planet, our people and our customers. As one of Europe’s fastest growing digital banks, our values of being Brave, Enterprising, Simple, and Together (BEST) ensure our 500-strong team collaborate to drive a brighter, greener future.

Tandem also leads the way with a secondary app called Loop. Loop gives customers a simpler, hassle free and awkward free way to share money among friends.

Your team: Collaborators in change 
Tandem is proud to offer a workplace with diverse experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds which leads to a unique company culture for our people and a better experience for our customers.
 
The Technology Team is one of the largest teams in Tandem and they are at the heart of driving the Bank’s Transformation Program as well as running all the Technology services for the Bank.  The team consists of the usual people you expect in a Tech Team; engineers, developers, testers but it also has systems, data, business analysts as well as delivery managers that oversee how we deliver our transformation.  We are a hard-working team, all keen to make a lasting impact for Tandem and it’s customers.  Whilst you may join in an assisting role, you will get the chance to work with all the department’s leaders, including our CTO.  If you are keen to progress into other parts of the Bank, you will have the opportunity to work with lots of different areas to see if there are other areas and roles you would like to progress into.
