Senior Software Engineer (UK)
Who are we?
We want to help small businesses win. That’s why we’re here.
We connect small business owners to investors – to create jobs, help families and power economies – because we believe that people are made to do more. And we want to help them.
So, we created the leading online marketplace for small business loans. Our investors have lent £13.7 billion in 171,000 loans to 122,000 small business owners. In a single year, we unlocked 100,000 jobs and contributed £7.2 billion to the UK economy. There’s never been a better time to join!
Be part of the team that changes everything. Let’s build the place where small businesses can get the funding they need to win and leave a legacy behind, forever.
This role sits within the “Tech and Data” teams. The drivers behind our platform – brilliant people working together to create, code, and build the next game changers.
What will you be doing?
We are focused entirely on using technology to provide the best experience for our borrowers and investors. We are doing this by building elegant, sustainable, and scalable solutions that can be applied globally. We work in small agile teams practicing continuous integration, TDD and are no strangers to pairing as we believe that working together is smarter than sitting in silos.
Day to Day, this role will include:
- Collaborating as part of an agile cross functional team, as well as technology chapters
- Delivering innovation through software to automate processes that enable Funding Circle to operate at scale
- Using Clojure, Kafka, React and Ruby currently and built entirely on AWS
- Supporting our production systems
- Building out our US platform from here in the UK and building great use experiences for our customers.
- Experienced in at least one major programming language (we use Ruby, Clojure and Python so these would be preferable, but not essential)
- A strong fundamental programmer (data structures, algorithms)
- Familiar with developing on Unix/Linux
- Knowledgeable of Agile, Scrum, BDD, TDD and CI/CD
- A senior who is able to drive and influence architectural decisions whilst mentoring and up-skilling more junior members of the team

If you show skill and are willing, we’ll back you all the way. This is the place for you to build something incredible.
