    Our Story

    Noah is the all-in-one Bitcoin backed money app for everyone, everywhere. We are building the future of money, and we’re growing rapidly.

    We are backed by leading crypto investors and our Co-Founding team is highly experienced with previous executive roles at UK’s Top 10 technology firms.

    The flood is truly coming - and we believe in leveraging the power of technology to solve some of the world’s biggest problems.

    Enter Noah: the Bitcoin-fuelled ark of the future. We’re here to fix money and we have room for everyone on board. We’re finally levelling the financial playing field by building a robust financial services platform directly on top of Bitcoin. For the first time in history, everyone on the planet will have access to a comprehensive suite of financial services. No frills, no tricks, no strings attached. An all-in-one financial application for everyone, everywhere.

    • Leading the implementation of the systems under your ownership in accordance with the overall governance agreed by the team, ensuring that obligations to your team members are satisfied or renegotiated in a timely manner.
    • Fully understanding the product requirements for the systems that you are building and capturing these in the form of Epics, Stories and Tasks in Jira.
    • Identifying and taking into consideration non-functional requirements in the design and implementation of the systems that you own.
    • Actively seeking to overcome obstacles to your work, minimise your dependencies on others and drive your deliveries to completion.
    • Escalating issues that you cannot manage without assistance to the broader team.
