*What’s the role all about?*

Cleo is an AI assistant that helps over 900,000 people in the UK, US and Canada feel great about their money. We are a fast-growing start-up, backed by the founders of Skype, Transferwise and Zoopla. Cleo is a fun and engaging personality that talks to you like a real person to help; track spending, set budgeting goals, auto saving money, helping avoid overdraft charges and a whole lot more

"Watch this to dive a little deeper"

We're looking for software engineers to help us deliver product at scale. You'll work within a bright, experienced backend team which is growing fast

*What you’ll be doing:*

Projects are undertaken over week long sprints with sprint goals aligned to overall quarterly targets

Some of our current interests lie in:
* Machine learning: we have a wealth of user transaction data that we are leveraging, using ML techniques, to provide better insights to our users
* Scaling to millions of users: we need to ensure that our tech stack can support our ambitious growth targets over the next 12 months. We are working on optimising our rails application for performance and memory usage, and scaling our database
* Product: working on an intelligent assistant used by hundreds of thousands of people offers unique challenges and opportunities compared to your standard web application. We’re constantly iterating based on user feedback to provide the best experience to our users

Our Stack:
* Ruby on Rails
* Minitest
* Sidekiq
* React
* Postgres
* Redis
* Heroku
* Github
* CircleCI

*What are we looking for?*
* At least 2 years’ experience in a backend role (ideally with Ruby)
* Ability to reduce complex problems to simple solutions consistently
* People who enjoy making those around you better engineers
* Someone who's excited by what we're building at Cleo; you are product-focused and care about making our users’ lives better

*How long will all this take?*

We aim to move as fast as possible, usually 2 weeks is enough time for us all to get to know each other
* Quick phone call with a member of our team to find out more about your experience and why you want to work at Cleo
* Short take-home test
* Onsite interview

*What do you get for all your hard work?*

Cleo is a great place to work:
* An above market compensation package (Base + Equity). We're prepared to pay for the very best.
* Work at one of the fastest growing tech startups anywhere in the world. We recently closed a competitive Series A with Balderton who join a formidable investor base including the founders of Skype, Transferwise, Zoopla, Lovefilm, Climate corporation, SongKick and others.
* The team is exceptional. You'll get to work with brilliantly bright and dedicated individuals every day.
* Our mission is unique. We want to radically improve everyone’s relationship with money. We're not maximising the time consumers spend in a feed, getting fast food delivered, or building an incrementally better bank. We're changing an industry in a visceral way, which you get to see every day in our customer feedback.
