Description & requirements


At Jack Henry & Associates, we deliver technology solutions that are digitally transforming and empowering community banks and credit unions to provide enhanced and streamlined user experiences to their customers and members.  Our best-in-class products are just the start as we lay the groundwork for the future of digital banking and payments. We hope you’ll join us. We can’t do it without you. 

The Banno Team with Jack Henry & Associates is redefining the relationship between forward-thinking financial institutions and their customers. Banno leverages modern technology and an industry leading product vision to make user-friendly mobile and web apps. We have a first-class API; the same API our web and mobile apps use is the same API that is open to the community to build on top of and extend.

The Scala Engineer participates and works with our team to build Banno’s next generation of services that power a set of critical domains.  These services ultimately power Banno’s Open API and our online and mobile banking products.  Banno’s APIs are first-class-citizens and are consumed by both internal teams and organizations outside of Banno.
