It's been a great start to 2021 for Soar and as a result, we're growing our team. Next week we're taking part in a fintech roundtable discussing equality, diversity and inclusivity issues in the FinTech sector in Scotland and as we're taking on new colleagues it's a good time for us to consider this in the grand scheme of our own recruitment.
Soar's a fintech that produces a cloud-based banking platform for socially responsible banks and lenders and we're on an exciting journey to positively impact the lives of millions of our fellow citizens. The Soar Banking Platform is made up of a suite of mobile & web apps and a multi-tenanted cloud-based platform - giving our customers an engaging banking experience which aims to better serve those who need access to affordable credit the most.
We're, therefore, looking to attract candidates who get excited about planning, developing, testing and running great software. The beauty here is that this can open you up to a wide range of diverse career options.
Our people tend to like:
It's quite important to us that our people appreciate the nature of the environment in which we're operating. Financial Services is a booming sector which is constantly evolving to meet its customers' needs and becoming ever more innovative to operate at scale, personalise services and compete effectively in a very fast-paced market.
Our customers are all regulated by the FCA or Bank of England (or both) and it's important that we operate sympathetically with them in this environment. We're not a RegTech business, but there are lots of ways we can help our customers from a compliance perspective. Often this has to be designed into the core of our platform and in customer workflows.
For us it's important you care about:
Although the "fintech" part of Soar is covered off above. We're also on a mission to improve the financial well-being of potentially millions of people up and down the country. We would love to know you're on the journey with us too through your own beliefs and past experiences.
So far this year we've already welcomed Chris, who joined us in the ranks of Full Stack Software Engineer and we're currently looking for more to join our team. If you're keen - head over to our careers pages to find out more about our Quality Assurance and Software Engineering roles.
