Backend Engineer

What's the team like?

We rely heavily on PHP7, Symfony3, MySQL and Node.JS, AWS, Docker and Kubernetes

We are using technology to make the process of owning and investing in property simple and straightforward. To date - we have loaned £1 billion, but we have set the bar much higher.

We hire great people who are passionate about solving real-world problems in an exciting, dynamic, collaborative and fun environment.

Our engineering teams, split into multi-functional teams that look after the investor, loan engine and borrower platforms, providing the technology and innovation that allows us to grow and evolve as a business. Without them, we could not achieve the goals we set as a company. From building a brand new microservices architecture to introducing 3rd party services to enable efficiencies or expansion, the challenges are never ending

We use Domain Driven Design (DDD) to understand our partners and business to produce better outcomes. We use short iterations to make valuable contributions.

  • Take part in daily stand ups
  • Go through project boards to evaluate the work to be done
  • Write well-designed, testable, efficient code by using the best software development practices

  • Good knowledge of REST
  • MySQL, AWS, Docker, Kubernetes would be a bonus
  • Test Driven (TDD). You will never say it’s ready until it’s been tested, documented and explained

It would nice if you:

  • Have experience using DDD
  • Have an active interest in finance or property and industry disruption

What you’ll get in return
