Software Engineer - Career Comeback opportunity

Engineering London, United Kingdom


Description

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, support local communities and power economies – because we believe that people are made to do more. And we want to help realise their goals. 

So, we created the leading small business loan platform. Investors have lent £11.4 billion in 143,000 loans to 100,000 small business owners. In a single year, this lending unlocked 135,000 jobs and contributed £10 billion to the global 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 teams. The drivers behind our platform – brilliant people working together to create, code, and build the next game changers.

What will you be doing?

Funding Circle is excited to launch its very own Career Comeback opportunity! The purpose of this is to support talented professionals in re-joining the workplace after an extended career break. Are you in search of some guidance, support, and knowledge to really help you go further? 

Funding Circle is here to offer that, and help you regain traction within the workplace. We believe everyone is made to do more, and that’s why we are launching this scheme across different areas of our business.

Why should you join us? 

We’re gearing up for our biggest chapter yet – and it’s being driven by tech. 

That means full steam ahead working on our global platform and real challenges for you to noodle and solve – as we build new things, reimagine the stack and go after the greenfield. 

We believe that great ideas come from everywhere. So, there are no pigeonholes here. We keep it agile and open. Think big remits and huge ownership in a continuous learning environment. Close knit teams, with mentorships and global career opportunities. Everyone working together to make a genuine difference to small business owners. 

Join the team making it happen. Help us define long-term commitments and launch the next game changers – let’s build the incredible.  

It’s in our differences that we find our strengths. 

At Funding Circle, we celebrate and support the differences that make you, you. We’re proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and affirmative action employer. We truly believe that diversity makes us better. We particularly encourage applications from applicants from underrepresented backgrounds. We welcome applicants who may want to work flexibly.
