    Who We Are

    Travelex are a market leading independent foreign exchange business. Over the past 40 years we have built a market leading retail and payments network of specialist foreign exchange stores, and have developed Travelex as a trusted and widely recognised brand in foreign exchange.

    We are on a mission to transform our business into a leading FinTech organisation through the development of a number of digital-first, greenfield products and services.Our present focus of the company is to develop offerings in international payments and banknote distribution, with roll-outs planned globally. These offerings will cater to both our retail customers as well as our corporate and financial services partners.

    In order to achieve these digital transformation initiatives, we are looking to expand our team across engineering, UX and design.

    Now Let's Get Technical

    • Our technology consists of a combination of React/Angular-based frontend applications and upwards of 25 fault-tolerant microservices hosted within Docker containers on AWS. Together, they provide a state-of-the-art ecosystem for digital products to be developed, iterated and operated in an agile manner.
    • We have a built our own international payments platform from the ground up
    • We are organised into small pizza teams, cross functional and small enough to execute value
    • We take pride in our testing and releasing code into production and believe in the DevOps model
    • Everyone is expected to support the code they release, after-all we care about our platform and our customers.
