Who we are

In the last 10 years, Mambu has been revolutionising banking - making it more accessible, more straightforward and more inclusive. We provide cloud-based, composable API banking solutions and are on a mission to make banking better for over a billion people around the globe. With fresh funding secured and a near-€5 billion valuation, we have big ambitions..!

We bring this same sense of innovation and aspiration to how we support our people. We pioneered the 4 day summer work week, have announced the provision of equity for all and launched Our Mambu Deal to capture how we work with each other and what we offer all Mambuvians.

This is just the beginning. We continue to look for ways to make Mambu an even better place to work.

We’re not here to play it safe.

We’re here to change the world.

About the role

Mambu's Security team is focused on ensuring security is at the heart of our products, services and culture. We’re at an exciting time of our journey as we scale up to support a growing customer base and expand our services across multiple clouds. The Principal Security Architect Role is pivotal to future-fit our security strategy and requires expert knowledge and experience in cloud security, security architecture, secure software development, API security, PKI, Identity & Access Management, data security and solution patterns.

What you’ll do

  • Security requirements, solution architecture and use cases for security are built in by design and default, with appropriate monitoring and ongoing effectiveness assessment across design, implementation and operations.
  • Security artefacts, patterns, blueprints, services and code libraries are consumable by developers and Service Reliability Engineers, reducing development burdens and ensuring scalability and consistency of security controls.
  • Appropriate cloud security controls are embedded across AWS, Azure, GCP and OCI stacks.
  • Best-in-class, automated security controls are embedded across Mambu’s cloud infrastructure, architecture and design processes, to support a rapidly scaling business, servicing top-tier financial institutions in a cloud-first, agile, DevSecOps environment.
  • Mambu’s API security strategy is defined and ensures best-in-class security controls are embedded and evolve in step with the threat landscape.

What you’ll bring

  • Extensive experience and specialist expertise in security architecture, ideally within highly regulated banking/technology/ FinTech scale-up environments.
  • Expert knowledge of infrastructure, platform, software security design patterns, software architecture and associated security principles; cloud security architecture (we operate across AWS, Azure, GCP); microservices security; IAM;API security, cryptography, threat modelling and secure software development,with a proactive attitude to continuous learning to stay abreast of digital innovations.
  • Proven track record of designing, building, maturing and scaling security architecture capabilities and oversight in cloud-first organisations and a deep understanding of how to articulate relevant strategic roadmaps in a compelling, customer-focused way.
  • Visionary thinker, an advocate for innovation, with a deep understanding of how to continually evolve Mambu’s security architecture, practices and controls in line with evolving threats and changing business focus.

Mambu’s future

We are a diverse group of Mambuvians, and we are growing fast. Our eyes are on the future, and we believe we can use our technology and our talent to deliver banking experiences for billions that are also sustainable and inclusive and accessible.

Your future

We’re also focused on delivering a fantastic working experience for all Mambuvians. We pioneered the 4 day working week between June - August many years ago, and continue to innovate around how work should feel and how it should get done. Our Mambu Deal is how we articulate this relationship of support and dedication which drives us all forward.

We give financial institutions a powerful competitive edge by allowing them rapidly create, launch and service any lending or deposit portfolio through a modern SaaS banking platform. Built from the cloud up, we are a powerful alternative to the costs and complexity of traditional core banking systems or custom in-house solutions.
