Funding Circle:

We are the largest P2P Lending Platform for small businesses in the world. Unlike traditional banks we make it easy for SME companies to access the funds they need to help them scale.

We are a global business and this year we are set to process over 4 Billion Dollars in loans to support SMEs. In doing this our Engineering teams are committed to the continuous scaling and improvement of our core products.


We love engineers with a polyglot approach to problem solving.

We have a varied stack because of it, our core application built in Ruby and JavaScript based on Rails, Sinatra and Angular. However we also use Clojure for our core marketplace systems and Python for our internal Machine Learning systems. On top of this we work with the latest technologies such as Kafka, Postgres, Docker and Cassandra to name a few.

Our Tech teams organise in full cycle agile teams, each responsible for the end to end ownership of a core product. We love Scrum but we aren't afraid to break away from this and use the right processes for the needs of the team.

The types of projects and systems we work on are varied but high level below:

  • Building a low latency, high availability and scalable global platform
  • Creation of a new Microservices/Event Driven Architecture across the business
  • Globally scalable systems for the detection and prevention of Fraud and Money Laundering
  • Machine Learning based systems to automate our Underwriting process and accurately predict risk of new customers
