At PassFort, we share a powerful vision to enable businesses & individuals to establish trust online. We’re connecting the human concept of trust with the transformative technology of the internet.
Have you opened a bank account recently from the comfort of your home? With nothing more than a few clicks and pics? We’re the technology in the background enabling our regulated clients to onboard customers digitally and efficiently. We’re focussed on translating complex compliance policies into an easy to use operating system that helps to automate workflows, integrate with data vendors, and provide a range of tools for case management and reporting.
It’s an exciting time to join the team as the product builds in complexity, and will challenge you to think about how best to help us scale in line with the wider PassFort vision.
Engineering Culture & Values
Our Values are simple yet powerful and can be seen and felt day-to-day in how we like to work:
Once a piece of work is groomed and scoped, you will be given complete ownership in deciding how to break this down and deliver it. We know we can rely on you to get stuff done.
We work flexibly to allow people a great work-life balance, so you’ll be empowered to set your own rhythm and bring your best self to work.
Working together without hierarchy
We empower everyone to share their ideas and opinions to come up with the best solution to achieve our goals, together.
You’ll get experience across the whole product, and own implementation across design, delivery and deployment. You’ll be empowered to make decisions to drive PassFort forward and have a real impact.
There’s no such thing as a silly question
It’s how we learn and improve, and we’re all absolutely happy to help other team members when needed.
We regularly reflect on our progress and we’re always looking for ways to improve, from the technologies we use to our own skills.
You’ll have the support you need to invest in your development to enable you to be great in your role (you’ll be encouraged to get involved in projects across the stack!), and also work towards your long term career goals.
We work with modern cutting edge tech-centered on Rust, Python, and React.
This is what you will be working on in 2019
A day-in-a-life of an Engineer at PassFort
We have a great central location and are a quick walk away through a haven of fantastic markets/restaurants/cafes - ready to lure you back at lunchtime.
We come together as a team for a daily morning stand-up. It’s a chance for everyone to share their progress on various projects they are working on so everyone’s in the loop, we can track how we’re going against our goals and get ahead of any challenges.
We might kick off grooming of a new feature - we work closely with our Product & Design teams to ensure we understand why a new feature will be valuable to customers, and collaborate on how best we can meet their needs.
You can take your lunch break whenever you feel like - we’re flexible! It’s a great chance to get away from your desk. Perhaps you’ll take on our ping-pong champion? Or, challenge your next willing opponent at FIFA? Perhaps, you’ll start your own leaderboard with your favourite game.
We’ll continue working on projects across the day. We love having a lot of ownership and autonomy with our work, but everyone gets involved in code reviews and pitching in if someone gets stuck.
Finally, your day might be finished with releasing a new feature! Continuous deployment is something we are really proud of as it allows us to release great new features to our customers quicker.

Angela can start dancing on her chair when she’s really concentrating, we wonder what awesome beat is playing in her head?
Diggsey likes looking for the spiciest snacks he can find, like beef jerky with Carolina Reaper chili.
Richard can fly a plane!
Andreea loves but is renowned for being clueless around animals - a happy wag of a tail sets her mind in overdrive - is it a request for pats or are they plotting to take over the world?
