Form3 was established in 2016 by four banking and technology leaders with a single purpose – to transform outdated, complex and costly payments infrastructure to a modern, cloud-native, real-time Payments-as-a-Service. Since then we have made enormous steps in opening up access to payment schemes for the global financial community, enabling them to scale and optimise their business operations through advanced payment technology.
Our vision is to be the world’s most trusted provider of cloud-native, real-time payment technology, enabling our customers to access multiple payment schemes and move money to delight their clients.
We are a company that places technology and our people at the core of everything we do. Our senior engineers have been involved since the founding of the company and understand our business better than anyone. We are proud to be building the best team, software and processes and focus on quality without cutting corners. Our team are based in more than 11 locations across the UK and Europe. Some of our team work remotely 100% of the time in beautiful beachside locations, others live closer to London and like to come into the office a few days a week. Either way, we all love a challenge and being part of a company that helps our customers to make millions of payments.
We want everyone at Form3 to feel involved and have a say in shaping our business. We provide a safe space to be inquisitive, voice opinions, experiment, make mistakes and push boundaries with zero judgement.
You will find plenty of people here that are on your wavelength! Everyone is respected for who they are. We hire talented people from a variety of backgrounds and experiences and are committed to a work environment based on diversity, open-mindedness and curiosity.
Our work is our craft. We have fun, we build the best cloud payment technology in the world, treat people right, find work-life harmony, build comradery. Here you will be in an environment where you can grow as a person and accomplish the best work of your career.
Our leadership team are super passionate about gender diversity – our ultimate goal is to hire the best people for our business, regardless of gender. Form3 believes that greatness comes through the diverse exchange of ideas from a diverse range of perspectives. Growing and retaining technical talent is of huge importance in ensuring the UK can maintain a flourishing economy – increasing female representation is fundamental to that effort.
Society and world of work have come a long way and of course we are seeing lots of great movements to encourage girls to study STEM subjects and women to start careers in finance and technology. However inside and outside of the workplace huge inequalities still exist in all kinds of areas, whether it’s education, political engagement, access to family leave, health or income. The gender gap is still too big, which is why we are now actively committed to increasing gender diversity in our organisation and across our industry.
We realise we can’t change the world, but we’re certainly going to give it a try!

“A lack of women in financial technology roles is not unique to Form3. Working with the TTC and other signatories, we’re openly acknowledging that change is critical to the culture, performance and long-term success of our business and the sector”.
Mike Walters, Chief Product Officer and Chief Diversity Sponsor
In my view, cultural diversity is one of the foundations of the success of Form3 and we need to ensure that we build on this foundation. My vision for the business is one where colleagues from many different ‘walks of life’ bring together a very wide set of experiences, ideas, ambitions and skills to pursue a common dream of re-shaping the future of our industry.
“As a father of three daughters, I have no doubt that females can be just as successful in any male dominated industry as their male counterparts, but we need male allies to help open up opportunities so that we no longer consider fintech as a male dominated space.
Michael Mueller, Chief Executive Officer
People can work from wherever they’re happiest and most comfortable, whether that is in their office or a hammock in the garden. We work hard to make sure we don’t lose the human connection and that our people are given trust to excel at what they do.
