They’re putting that funding from RBS to good use.

I wonder why they chose Southampton

Thanks for the post.

Good to see. Does anyone know what their tech stack is?

This is very good news and a very positive step for Starling. It’s good that they recognise the importance of moving outside of London as that is what will be essential for their longterm future.

I may have had issues with Starling in the past, but Anne and her team really must be congratulated. Everything they’ve achieved in such a short space of time really is awe-inspiring!

I don’t think they have ever said.


(Derpa Derp) #7

Agreed, although I used to poo poo Starling watching what they are doing now seems to be better than some other banks out there.


#8

Shame Starling don’t have any graduate positions or internships" to my knowledge, I could use with an internship over summer.


#9

They definitely do offer internships sometimes, as I remember reading it somewhere. It might be worth asking the team on Twitter where you can keep updated.

Their backend is Java - I talked briefly to one of their devs at their Christmas event a couple of years ago.

I think they are looking to offer more internships soon

Interesting. If they’re looking to upgrade to Scala I’d be well up for it!

You spelled Kotlin wrong :clap::smirk:
