About the Role

We’re the world’s leading provider of secure financial messaging services. We are the way

can address the scale, precision, pace and trust that this demands, and we’re proud to
support the global economy.

We’re unique too. We were established to find a better way for the global financial community
to move value – a reliable, safe and secure approach that the community can trust,
completely. We’re always striving to be better and are constantly evolving in an everchanging landscape, without undermining that trust. Nearly five decades on, our vibrant
community reflects the complexity and diversity of the financial ecosystem. We innovate
diligently, test exhaustively, then implement fast. In a connected and exciting era, our
mission has never been more relevant
