Openbank offers up to €10,000 for tech referrals


Openbank, the 100% digital bank of the Santander Group, is launching an ambitious campaign to continue attracting the best talent and aims to take root as one of the most technologically advanced companies in the sector. The bank is offering €1,000 in cash to anyone, whether they are a customer or not, who refers a candidate who is hired for one of the open tech positions. This applies to the first ten referrals each person makes (with a maximum of €10,000) before 30 April 2023.

Any professionals who join the project will be part of a young, international, agile team working with the latest technology and developing 100% cloud-based products. These solutions are aimed at powering the next generation of banks and fintechs through optimised efficiency and improved customer experience.

Some of the most important positions, which will be updated regularly in the Openbank job openings section, are for software engineers specialising in microservices such as Spring Boot, Go, Java and Kotlin, in mobile applications using Swift (iOS) and Kotlin (Android), and in online apps using React, as well as data engineers using Spark and Flink, among others.

David Gesto, head of software development at Openbank, said, “Openbank offers a unique opportunity as one of the few companies in Europe where a software engineer can work with the latest technologies and event-driven architectures in real time, with serverless microservices and NoSQL databases. All this happens entirely in the cloud while working with a young team from over 40 countries, accessing continuous learning, and focusing on creating products that are used worldwide by millions of customers”.

Professionals who join the team of more than a thousand engineers already working on the project can choose between working remotely or in person at hubs in Madrid, Valencia, Bilbao, Mexico City, Buenos Aires or Miami.

Openbank currently has already racked up more than 1.9 million customers in Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Germany and Argentina and is currently wrapping up its launch in Mexico and the United States.
