Anne Boden, founder and CEO of Starling Bank said: “We’re a British Bank full of brilliant talent and we’re opening our doors to more hires. Our new office is based in between the financial district of the city and London’s Silicon Roundabout - the perfect location for Starling, which stands apart from traditional banks and challenger banks and is firmly in a category of one.”
