    Payment technology reimagined ๐Ÿš€

    Form3 are a cloud-native payment technology provider for financially regulated institutions. Launched in 2016 by four executive banking and technology leaders, we have grown from start-up to established scale-up at a sensational pace.

    We are now a team of close to 500 people and proudly partner with some of the most exciting and disruptive banks and Fintech's globally.

    Having focussed initially on UK and European markets, Form3 now have an expanding presence in the US.

    Our love for technology โค๏ธ

    Though dotted across the UK ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง, Europe ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ, Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ, Argentina ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ท and US ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ, our love for cloud-native technology is what unites us.

    Technical excellence is our passion and we delight in using technology to continually improve our customer's experience. When you combine that with operational excellence, magic happens.

    The Form3 platform is built on a powerful micro-services architecture and provides a single point of access to the full universe of payment schemes.

    The challenges ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป

    Code quality and correctness are paramount at Form3 as our multi-cloud platform needs to be secure, scalable and highly available in order to process millions of payments per day.

    Achieving this as a truly remote company requires a lot of thought. Working within small, self-managed teams, our engineers utilise a combination of sync and async workflows giving them freedom to work how they feel most productive.

    The technology โš™๏ธ

    By utilising the latest cloud-native technologies, and embracing the DevOps mindset, at Form3 youโ€™ll be responsible for every aspect of the work youโ€™re delivering, from design and testing, through to deployments and infrastructure operations.

    Go is our primary programming language as itโ€™s perfect for building out our highly-performant, event-driven micro-services architecture.

    This exposes our engineers a wide variety of challenges and provides plenty of opportunity to grow.

    The culture ๐Ÿชด

    Form3โ€™s Software Engineering team is 100% remote and distributed across 20+ countries around the world. We recognise our Engineers are our biggest asset and therefore have invested a lot of energy into creating a positive and productive engineering culture.

    Our teams favour collaborative development and leverage open-source tools and communities, whilst making sure to share their know-how back up stream.

    Our remote-first culture ๐Ÿก

    People can work from wherever they are happiest and most productive, whether that is in an office or from a hammock in their garden. We work hard to make sure we donโ€™t lose the human connection and that our people are given trust to excel at what they do.

    With over 85 nationalities working together from 26 different countries, Form3 has a tight-knit culture to make remote-working as much of a success as it is.
