Careers

Who we are

Arachnys accelerates onboarding and monitoring by providing the best global KYC and AML data. Enriched, intelligent data on customers enables straight-through processing and means fewer customer touchpoints, less risk and quicker revenue.

Founded in 2010, we’ve helped some of the world’s biggest banks avoid regulatory fines, remediation costs and improved efficiency.

Why work for us?

In short, you get all the advantages of a startup (super fun teams, immediate impact, collaborative learning environment, greenfield projects, free snacks/ smoothies/ beers/ prosecco, and contribution to company strategy)…but with stability, predictability, and work-life balance that comes from steady growth 

Remote-First

Arachnys is a remote-first organisation, meaning that we work remotely but come together for collaborative on-sites and socials a handful of times a year (once it’s safe to do so). We have found that candidates within 1-2 time zones of the UK work best with our current working practices. We provide all the technology and equipment our team needs to work productively remotely as well as all travel costs if we do ask them to come to a London onsite.

How to apply

We aim to respond to all applications; please check your spam folder if you do not receive a response from an application. 

We do not currently work with recruiters or consultants, but we will answer all legitimate enquiries from individual candidates.

In particular, we’re always on the lookout for exceptional technical candidates. We read and respond to every bona-fide application. 

Closing dates

Visas and sponsorship

We are able to offer to sponsor visas and pay relocation expenses only for exceptional candidates. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Our Stack

On the tech side, we work on hard but rewarding problems with advanced, performant technologies. We run our own distributed infrastructure with physical and virtualised servers located all over the globe, including a 100TB+ Hadoop cluster and a 10TB+ ElasticSearch cluster. Our services are deployed to AWS with Terraform and we make use of Docker and Kubernetes in production.

On the backend we use Python, Django, PostgreSQL and Redis. On the frontend we are using TypeScript, the latest version of JavaScript, React, Apollo GraphQL and even have our own Chrome extension.

We are contributors to open source, with our Cabot server monitoring tool starred over 4,500 times on GitHub and AthenaPDF, a PDF generation project in Go, over 1,000 times. We are constantly looking for opportunities to open-source more and more of our non-core tech.

We love to hear from people who have eclectic tastes in languages, but we have an established codebase in Python and React so we’d hope to hire people who are keen to do great work in those languages on a day-to-day basis.
