We are a digital micro-lender helping under-banked, overlooked, consumers onto and up the credit ladder. Powered by the growing prevalence of the smartphone, we’re working to make consumer credit more inclusive and affordable for those who need it most.

Backed by leading European and US fintech investors, we are accelerating financial inclusion through data; cutting costs for our customers and improving the quality of financial services. In the UK alone we provide fair access to credit to 12m migrants and working poor; we have originated around half a million loans to 155,000 unique customers and provided funds of over £323 million to financially excluded communities.

Our app and our smart-phone based scoring model interpret and use alternative data in underwriting, risk management and customer engagement. By operating outside the traditional financial services system, we serve the underbanked whilst giving people access to the financial system.

We believe that technology should enhance customer service, offering a commitment to quality service, convenient access, and financial empowerment.

We are based in Central London and have talented teams working from across the globe: China, Mexico and Europe. As we embark on our next phase of growth in the UK and expand to Sub-Saharan Africa, we are looking for talented Software Engineers to help us re-build a state-of-the-art app.

What you will do:

Working as a key member in one of our cross-functional teams, you will help define and drive our quarterly Objectives and key results (OKRs) with one of the product teams. You would be engaged in deploying the cloud using Docker ad KBS. You will get a chance to use latest technologies to migrate our existing code base to this new architecture smoothly and creatively.

Who you are:

You are commercially driven and want to make a difference for our customers
You have an analytical mind and love solving problems as part of a team
You have deep understanding of multiple program languages (C#, Java, Golang, Dart, Java Script)
You have strong knowledge of algorithms and data structures
