Software Engineer

Fintech start-up

Do you want to join a small fintech start-up with BIG plans?

The client

This company are focused on applying new technology to an industry which is outdated. Founded by two corporate loan market specialists, they’re looking to harness the power of technology to help loans settle quicker by focussing on automation and efficiency. Currently the market standard is 35 days – these guys aim to bring that down to just 2.

Technology and process change is at the heart of their ideology but by no means are they headbanging evangelists. They’re not trying to disrupt the banks but enable them to work in a faster and more efficient way.

The role

You’ll be joining a development team of 3 and will be the first engineer focused solely on the backend. Ideally you’ll have experience with a fintech or within payments – you’ll get a fair amount of input into how their payment integrations are going to look.

Their stack is relatively straightforward with the added twist of Kotlin – experience working with the language before would be great but if you’re a solid Java engineer and willing to get up to speed quickly here, let’s talk. Database knowledge (think SQL, PostgreSQL) and API knowledge would be great as well.

The candidate

They’re offering up to £50K a year and are happy for you to work remotely going forward, though you’d need to be based in the UK.

We welcome those with alternative identities, backgrounds, and experiences. Our team includes parents, the self-taught, the university-educated, and people of a wide variety of nationalities, ages, and socio-economic backgrounds.

Obviously, we’re looking to ensure it’s a solid fit from both sides: we want you to step into a role you love, and we want to offer you a place you’re proud to come to every day for work.

We know that diverse teams are strong teams, and welcome those with alternative identities, backgrounds, and experiences to apply to be part of life at Zebra People. We are committed to a fair and accessible recruitment process for all candidates. We would be happy to meet any accommodation requests during the application or interview process, please just let us know.
