The banking world is drowning in legacy tech and infrastructure which restricts banks & FinTechs from innovating and delivering the products and services their customers want. With consumer expectations shifting and evolving, challenger banks are seizing the opportunity to take advantage of simplified banking solutions that offer a great experience. 

Thought Machine revolutionizes core banking through cloud native and modern engineering technology. The next generation Vault platform provides clients, like JP Morgan Chase, Kiwibank and Lloyds, with full control through highly scalable and configurable banking products. Vault’s Smart Contract technology allows financial institutions to own the creation of new products using modern engineering principles such as CI/CD, Test and Deployment Automation. An API first approach along with streaming APIs (Kafka) also provides a vast number of integration points that banks can utilise to build their integration to support creation, maintenance and payments.

Be part of a team that creates Core Banking products using Vault Smart contracts and become an expert in Thought Machine’s ecosystem. You will provide best in class engineering practices to enable a successful implementation that seamlessly integrates with the wider technology ecosystem.
