Working at Fnality

What’s in a name?

At Fnality, our job titles (like that at the top of this job description), are loosely held, and often more indicative of our previous experience than what we are currently working on. For example, one week you could be involved in all things Platform Engineering 99% of the time, but the next week splitting your time between investor relations, an RFP for a new supplier, and writing a blog post for our social media- so whatever the company needs to prioritise to meet its goals, whilst utilising your potential.

Fnality Global Payments

We are building a new payment system that will enable tokenised, peer-to-peer markets.

Fnality Global Payments (FnGP) will comprise a series of national systems, each regulated in its home jurisdiction. We call each of these a Fnality Payment System (FnPS)

In each payment system, a Fnality settlement asset will act as the settlement/payment asset for any Payment (P), Delivery v, Payment (DvP) or payment vs. payment (PvP) need.

FnGP are underpinned by Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT). The nature of DLT is such that it enables FnGP to:
