Freedom to explore

A problem-solving, user-centric approach.

It’s a problem-solving, user experience focused approach that, rather than predicating a specific technology, gives the developers the freedom to explore an find the best approach. If you’re passionate about building scalable, high performance software then get in touch we’re always interested in hearing from talented developers.

My favourite things about working at TotallyMoney are the massive amount of autonomy staff members are given and the encouraging atmosphere of the tech team. It hits the perfect sweet spot between productive and relaxed.

Working at TotallyMoney has helped develop my career by allowing me to focus on the things that I care about the most. It has allowed me to take on more responsibilities on the UX side of things to the extent that it is now my job title.

My career highlight since starting here has been a radical re-thinking of the cards platform UX, making it responsive and especially mobile friendly. I also really enjoy the testing culture which allows us to prove which solution is best for any given problem.

An interesting fact about me? I’m the proud mommy of two adorable bunnies. I used to have a ferret too. I also learned English mainly watching American TV series and listening to Stephen Fry reading the Harry Potter audiobooks.

Developer

I didn’t have access to the internet until the age of 18. Before I joined TotallyMoney, I was working with Roll7 making OlliOlli – a skateboarding game for PS Vita which actually won a BAFTA award for Best Sport Game in 2015.

FinTech is an early adopter of new and evolving technologies; which makes it the perfect environment for a developer. There are many great things about working here, but the best has to be the working relationships I have with people here. I laugh lots and get to have fun while creating exciting software.

When I joined TotallyMoney, I was in a precarious position. I’m South African and, at the time, needed a sponsor in order to remain in the UK. TotallyMoney were kind enough to step in as sponsor. The impact of this on my career is immense; I’m not sure where my career would be at if I had to go pursue it elsewhere.

In the dev team, we have the freedom to choose which technologies we work with. This is an attractive proposition to good developers and it holds great benefit to the company in that we get to use the best tools for the job without issue.

The value of glass-top tables combined with dry-markers should also not be underestimated. I’ve gained knowledge on dev-ops and back-end stuff like routing with NGINX, some .net programming, and also with integrating peripheral tech for monitoring… oh, and ping-pong.
