Who are we?

Funding Circle was created with a big idea: to revolutionise the broken financial system and secure a better deal for everyone.

We have created the leading small business loans platform in UK, US, Germany and Netherlands; a marketplace that directly connects credit worthy businesses with investors wanting attractive returns.

In just eight years, 80,000 Funding Circle investors have lent £5 billion to 50,000 businesses across the world. In addition, in 2017 lending through our platform created and sustained 75,000 jobs worldwide and contributed £4 billion to the global economy.

The driving force behind our product is our engineering team; we are using open source technologies like Ruby & Clojure to build a new platform that is elegant and sustainable. We are also creating scalable AWS cloud infrastructure on a global scale, and we want you to be a part of it!
