The role

We are looking for a Senior Salesforce Engineer.

This role sits within the Salesforce team in US Engineering. Salesforce is the core CRM tool we use to provide first class customer service. We have enhanced Salesforce as a core part of our tech platform to enable us to provide a bespoke service to small businesses. Come and help us disrupt the financial services industry with cutting edge technology!

We are focused entirely on making the most of the Salesforce platform to provide the best experience for our borrowers and internal teams. We are doing this using Apex, SOQL and Lightning, as well as tools such as web lightning components, flow and custom settings. We work in small agile teams using a number of best practices including continuous integration (Drone CI), unit testing and pairing.

Who are we?

Our mission is to build the place where small businesses get the funding they need to win. 

We do this by uniting cutting-edge data and technology to deliver an unbeatable customer experience. With a decade of expertise under our belt, we've built a game-changer of a platform that's reshaping the landscape of SME lending. Say goodbye to lengthy applications and hello to lightning-fast decisions! In just minutes, SMEs across the UK can get an instant decision, giving them access to affordable funding in a flash. 

99% of businesses are small businesses! And in most cases aren’t given the finance they need to grow. We’re here to change that because the world needs small business.
