We’re a small team of high performers who have built outstanding tech to deliver real innovation in FinTech in the form of automated lending. Well-funded (£400M+) and profitable after only three years. Software development is at the heart of what we do and leads all our business decisions. You’ll be working directly with our CTO co-founder building our platform and internal tools.
As we expand, our platform engineering team is looking to grow with a new Senior Software Engineer confident in their Symfony and PHP 7 skills.
What we offer:
Although there is no formal job spec, we believe in a mutual common understanding what a good developer should know in terms of design patterns, version control and creating secure code.
The technologies that we are tied to and are required are Symfony and PHP 7. We’ll gladly support you learning some more specific stuff that we use: Amazon SQS, Aurora, Docker, React.JS, Ansible, Silex.
The project this position is planned for is our main platform, built on Symfony and currently running on the framework’s v3.4. We are planning to move to v4 later this year. In addition to our main backend project, we have several smaller projects driven by their APIs. They are a mix of Scikit-learn, Flask, Symfony, Silex, Angular2 and NodeJS apps.
We use Docker and Ansible for development and tests and deploy frequently with our CI (Jenkins) pipeline. We’ve started to run Docker on production for our services. Our developers feel we’ve only just scratched the surface of what you can do with these new tools and are excited to explore them more in the coming months and years.
We are a very data and tech-driven company. In addition to a dev team, we also have a data science team who work mainly in Python building neural networks and other machine learning models to do everything from credit scoring to fraud detection. There’s always the opportunity to pick up some interesting new ideas from them.
