A Little about First AML.

Our team are a great bunch of people - a mix of experience, supportive like no other, wonderfully diverse and passionate about always making a difference.

Our purpose is to help everyday people access the financial system, while limiting criminal exploitation.

We've created a world-class SaaS product that solves our customers due diligence problems so that they can stay focussed on running their business. A few of the great names we work with in New Zealand are Hobson Wealth, Blackbird, KPMG and Ray White(financial institutions, accountants, law firms, venture capitalists and real estate agents).

Since 2018 we have experienced exponential growth, secured amazing funding and have gone from a handful of staff to 130+ and based on our success across New Zealand and Australia we are excited to be launching in the UK.

We will always work hard to ensure that you understand the positive role that you play in our team.

Diversity & Inclusion at First AML.

Diversity and inclusion is something we are passionate about. We are continuously looking for ways to make improvements across the business and are proud of our safe & inclusive workplace, we encourage people to bring their authentic selves to work.

About our Tech Stack.

The front end is a React app built with TypeScript and we use Apollo to consume our internal API. The back end is a GraphQL API built with .NET core, with a Postgres database.

The whole thing is hosted in containers on AWS, managed with terraform, deployed with BuildKite and monitored in DataDog.

It would be great if you had experience in a couple of these technologies but if not that’s ok by us. At First AML we foster an environment where everyone can learn and grow, so we’d be more than happy to share our wisdom with you and would like to encourage you to apply!

Our Engineering Role.

Our Engineering Team is led by Alex Henderson - VP of Engineering. Alex is an amazing people and technical leader with extensive experience in growing engineering teams that support each other so that together they can build an extraordinary product.

At First AML, Engineering work in teams - Hoiho, T?i, K?rearea and Dottrel. Each team includes 4 developers (2 Front End, 2 Back End and one of which is a Tech Lead) along with a QA.

We work on continuous delivery, where we ship numerous times throughout the day. We believe that this is the very best way to provide value to our customers.

As a team we love to collaborate - each of our engineering teams partners with a dedicated Product Manager and Designer. This way of working creates a great team environment where it nurtures our passion of delivering an exceptional product.

• You thrive in an environment of trust
• Supplied with the information you need, you enjoy the freedom to deliver a great product

Recruitment Process.
