Background check vs. Experience at outsourcing company


I work at a big outsourcing company as a Senior Software Engineer. I am fully outsourced to my client as a contractor. The client is a known prestigious bank and would surely sound better on the resume.

As a contractor with not that much of experience, I am exceptionally successful at the client side and received tremendous recognition. I was quickly "promoted" into a technical leader role on the client side. I am responsible for two software development teams and overall production delivery of meaningful features at scale. My outsourcing company's senior rank is a little lagged behind my actual client rank and responsibilities.

I will be looking into getting recruited to FAANG soon. How do I go about describing my experience during interviews, and on the resume itself?

I am under NDA, I cannot name the bank name directly. I can describe my experience though... I am terrified that background checks will demand documents that will confirm my work for the client himself – the bank, however, I don't have any such documents.

Thanks for sharing your insights!

Just break the NDA, it doesn't matter if you just name the employer

Sure, but then during the background check, I'd be asked for documents that will confirm my work for the bank, right? I don't have such documents. That's the main issue.
