Engineering Manager - Digital Bank, Backoffice

The mission of the Merchant Bank Tribe at SumUp is to create a service which solves the challenges small business owners face every day, providing them with secure instant access to their funds and a transparent overview of their transactions.

Banking services is a new domain in our ever growing ecosystem. It extends our product portfolio allowing small and medium-sized businesses to operate end to end on a single platform.

The Backoffice Squad is the newest squad in the Bank Tribe and still in formation. It will build the backoffice tool for the SumUp Bank from scratch.
