Job Description

You enjoy writing code, but in the back of your mind you’re always wondering: what problem does this solve? Who will be using this software and how will this make their work easier? You are fascinated by how your software is used and how it can be improved. You like to dive into the end users’ workflows to make them as seamless as possible. Because it’s not just about the code, it’s about the results.

You’ve found that having a robust, automated test suite frees the team to take on refactoring efforts with confidence, knowing that the system you’ve built won’t let you deploy broken software even if you try. You believe that collaborating with others makes it so that everyone learns, you build a better product, and you can sleep at night and go on vacation with the assurance that what you’ve constructed is stable.

Through the technology this team develops and runs, we’re making onboarding of security tech unexpectedly simple for customers. We’re also empowering our customer success team to onboard and maintain the fleet of our customers’ security devices, while being fully transparent with our customers with what we’re doing.

If this sounds like you, then we believe you’ll love our team, and we’d love to talk to you!

What You Can Do For Expel

  • Expand the core security device onboarding infrastructure our customers and analysts rely on 24 x 7
  • Make sure our customer support staff have the tools that they need to fix problems with the array of customer security devices when they come up
  • Enthusiastically reinforce our belief in good software engineering practice including code reviews and automated testing
  • Add your viewpoint to our engineering culture (and especially this small team)
  • Adapt to changes of direction because, hey, startup life!

What You Should Bring With You

  • A desire and ability to constantly learn and improve yourself and your work products
  • The ability to communicate and work effectively with others
  • A track record of building maintainable systems in Linux environments
  • Proficiency with at least one JavaScript framework (we use EmberJS but experience with another framework is valid)
  • Proficiency with Go 
  • Ideally: familiarity with cloud environments
  • 3+ years of full-stack development experience

How We Run This Team

  • We build and run teams where everyone is pulling in the same direction and is learning from each other:
  • We work out of a shared backlog
  • We peer-review everything
  • We pair-program when it makes sense
  • We do weekly blame-free retros to reinforce what’s going well, so we do more of it, and surface what’s not, so we can do something about it.

Additional Notes

At Expel, our employee benefits reflect our commitment to our crew. Unlimited PTO, equity for everyone, work location flexibility, up to 24 weeks of parental leave, and excellent health benefits are some of the ways we care for our Expletives.

Our headquarters is in Herndon, Virginia, however our team is fully remote, and we have full support for remote interaction. We realize that while there is benefit to in-person interaction, good people don’t all live in Northern Virginia.

4 Applicants This Week

Job Description

Who We Are

First thing you need to know; Bestow is not your typical insurance company. We’ve completely reimagined industry assumptions, and harnessed technology and big data to create life insurance products that aren’t just delightful to use but deliver on our mission: to make financial products accessible to more people than ever before.

Check us out at hellobestow.com

Who We’re Looking For

“Innovative” and “disruptive” can be overused words. But at Bestow, it isn’t jargon, it’s an everyday rally cry. We are rewriting the rules of the 400-year-old, $7 trillion life insurance industry, serving communities who have been underserved in the past, and we believe the future is a bright one.

So, if you’re excited by the idea of building something from scratch, working at a mission-driven company and fundamentally shaking up an age-old industry, please read on.

As a Staff Software Engineer on our Partner team you will lead development on external-facing APIs for our business partners. Much of the space is greenfield and will require making significant foundation decisions.

You take great pride in your craft and look for ways to improve our software and team effectiveness. You enjoy designing and documenting APIs and empathize with the developers using them. You have prior experience designing and implementing distributed systems. You balance concerns of maintainability, reliability and scalability with the need to deliver results. Less experienced engineers look to you for guidance and feedback on their work, and you’re thrilled to provide it.

Bestow software engineers are great teammates. You are willing to collaborate with other software engineers, product managers and designers. You also have exceptional written and verbal communication skills.

Ensuring a Robust Software Platform

Great software is more than product features. It simultaneously considers non-functional concerns like security, maintainability and extensibility. You will:

Take ownership over issues arising from previously delivered features; Ensure the security of our applications through participation in external penetration tests, threat modeling and security-focused code review; Use modern extensibility methods such as feature toggles; Automate routine developer workflows such as environment setup.

Fostering Best Practices

We might be small but we’ve got big ambitions. Folks joining the team will be defining our software engineering culture. You are someone that strives to build a premier engineering organization.

Measure quality metrics such as test coverage and gradually improve themLeave code in a better place than it was when you started; Encourage automation and continuous improvement.

A Little About You:

6+ years of back end software development experience; Professional experience with Python 3; Experience with statically typed languages (C#, Java, Golang, Rust, etc.); Professional experience with a relational database like PostgreSQL; Experience using Docker/Kubernetes for software development and deployment; Experience designing and documenting APIs (Protocol Buffers, RAML, Swagger, OpenAPI, etc.); Experience with distributed systems and microservices; Advocated for Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD); Clear, concise written and verbal communication; A desire and willingness to learn; Initiative and motivation to make things happen.

What We Can Offer To You:

Competitive salary; Generous PTO; Flexible schedule and work/life balance; 100% company-paid health, dental, and vision insurance; Choose your own computer setup (Mac or PC); Office snacks and weekly team lunches; Team building events and activities.

Geckoboard Logo
Backend Go Software Engineer
Geckoboard
London, United Kingdom / Remote (UK)
£65,000 to £80,000 a year
November 2020
3 Applicants This Week
This job posting is no longer available

Job Description

Excited about the idea of working on distributed systems at scale? Want to be writing Go everyday? With great people? We’re looking for curious problem solvers to do just that.

At Geckoboard, we’re working to help teams achieve their goals by enabling a fresh way of working. This revolves around making sure that important data gets seen and acted upon. That’s where our dashboards come in. Geckoboard is straightforward dashboard software that makes it quick and easy to surface live business data, metrics and KPIs for teams.

Our engineering culture

We’re all here to build something great. You’ll be joining a growing team of empowered engineers in a supportive environment that values experimentation, work-life balance and personal development. We’ve built a culture of knowledge sharing and feedback, so you’ll be involved in planning and prioritisation of work as well as peer reviews and pair programming.

Learning is also a big part of our engineering culture. About once every fortnight you’re able to take a whole day — an Innovation Day — to work on projects that interest you, learn new skills or contribute to open source… whatever it may be! We encourage these projects and often they have led to improvements in the way we work or concepts that have then been prioritised, developed further and added to our Product.

We work in small and focused cross-functional teams, usually made up of a Product Manager, a Designer, and a mix of Frontend and Backend Engineers. QA and Infrastructure tend to come in at the points they’re needed or for specific projects. We scope out our project such that we’re able to deliver meaningful work but small enough to iterate and take on board feedback quickly. We encourage our engineers to get involved in different teams and projects based on their interests, skills and opportunities to learn. We’re also equally mindful about technical debt and make sure we dedicate time to addressing it.

Our teams

**Product
**Our product teams each own a different part of the product, building features that improve Geckoboard for our customers. Some of our recent work has ranged from a new send-to-Slack feature, SSO and in the team you’ll be joining initially, we’ve been building a brand new internal framework for importing, storing, and analysing data from third-party APIs we integrate with. We know that investing in our Data Platform is the best way we can deliver flexible, high-quality integrations quickly and easily. The new framework takes care of managing and scheduling imports, responding to webhooks, receiving analytics queries, migrating data from one version to the next and allows us to build internal gRPC services using a common protobuf interface upon it.

**Platform
**We believe that we can only be successful as an Engineering team if we are constantly and systematically investing in our tooling, our common systems, and our developer experience, this is where our Platform team comes in. Our recent work has ranged from rapid response work to improving test and trace coverage, migrating existing services to Go modules and support for other teams. We’re also working on enabling older RESTful services to be migrated onto gRPC with a GraphQL API gateway in front.

You should apply if:

  • What we’ve described sounds interesting

  • You’re interested in distributed systems

  • You’ve worked with Go before*

  • You want to build a product that delights its users and genuinely serves their needs

  • You’re collaborative; you empathise, listen and discuss

  • You actively seek out feedback in your work and to ensure you understand the problem you’re solving

We know that there are great candidates who may not exactly fit into what we’ve described above, or who have important skills we haven’t thought of. If that’s you or you’re not sure, please apply, we’d love to hear from you.

  • Right now we’re only considering mid-to-senior level candidates, if you’re still developing your Go skillset and interested in joining the Geckoboard team, head to www.geckoboard.com/careers and get in touch, we’d love to hear from you and chat about future jobs!

Work where you work best:

While most of our team are normally based in our leafy East London office, a lot of us work remotely at least a day or two during the week. This means we’ve always been intentional about making sure our ways-of-working are remote-friendly so we can support that flexibility for everyone. We also have fully remote team members, though the expectation is that you’re comfortable with a visit to the London office about once a quarter (except during pandemics).

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, our office remains closed and everyone on the team is working from home presently. We’re likely to continue working from home over the Winter. We keep a close eye on the government guidance, regularly update the team, and plan to open our office only when it’s safe to do so again.

Some of our team have shorter working weeks and we’re more than happy to try to accommodate this or another arrangement whenever possible. Just let us know what works best for you or that you’d like to chat about it in your application.

Logistics:

At this time, we’re only considering candidates who are (or will be) based in the United Kingdom (regardless of whether you’re onsite when out offices reopen or fully remote). Unfortunately, we’re unable to provide sponsorship for this role.

Our hiring process:

  • 20-30 minute call with a Talent Partner
  • 45 minute video call with the Hiring Manager
  • Take home exercise
  • Virtual onsite with the team - about 2.5 hours

The whole process takes about 2-3 weeks end to end, but we’re flexible!

Proton Logo
Backend Engineer
Proton
Boston, MA, USA / Remote
$70,000 to $100,000 a year
February 2021
2 Applicants This Week

Job Description

This role has no specific closing date $70-100k plus equity and benefits Boston, MA or Remote Considered

At Proton we’re bringing cutting-edge technology to the world of business-to-business distribution. It’s a large market that accounts for trillions of dollars of revenue a year and offers an enormous opportunity for growth. It’s a huge chance to have an impact by shaking up an industry that’s still waking up to the promise of technology. We have a chance to really transform the way a huge number of people work for the better, and bridge the gap between amazing software tools and human expertise.

To achieve those ends, we have organized the company into several teams, or “pods”, tasked with providing value to different users, and we’re looking for backend engineers to join two of them. One team is committed towards improving the effectiveness of Customer/Inside Sales Representatives, salespeople who are used to reaching out to prospective or renewing buyers over a phone line and trying to provide a valuable pitch to their customer. The other is dedicated to providing value for Outside Sales Reps, who typically find themselves on the road reaching out to prospects in person. As a member of either pod, you’ll build backend systems in innovative and scalable ways with the end-user in mind, ultimately it’s your choice which pod you’d like to join.

Our team codes in Python, JavaScript (using the Vue framework), and Go, with modern scalable document- and key-based data stores behind them. We prefer excellence to expediency. Backed by our microservice architecture, we want the best tool not the most convenient. If there’s a compelling case to write something in Clojure, we can and will do it. With strong foundations, specific knowledge of these tools is not required. As an early member of our growing engineering team, you’ll have the opportunity to weigh in on design and architectural solutions that shape the company’s future.

On the hiring process, you may have noticed that we haven’t asked you for a resume yet. This is intentional, a longer explanation of why our process is so unorthodox and a primer of what to expect can be found in this blog post, but to summarize: we want to hire the brightest, not necessarily the most credentialed or best put on paper.

If you really know what you’re doing, whether you’re self taught or have spent your entire life until now in academia, we’d love to have you aboard the team.

We’d be thrilled to have you apply. If you’ve read this far, but decided not to apply, we’d love to get your feedback on why–let us know at [email protected]

London, UK / Remote (EU)
£59,000 to £116,000 a year
September 2020
4 Applicants This Week

Job Description

At Monzo we’re aiming to build the best current account in the world. We are always keen to hear from capable, creative engineers who want to help us accomplish that goal 🚀

We’re currently looking for Site Reliability Engineers (SREs) to join our Platform team.

We’re looking for SREs who are software engineers at heart - you’re as comfortable writing software to solve problems as you are operating AWS or Kubernetes. If you’re a software engineer who has some good cloud infrastructure experience already, or you’re eager to get really familiar with systems, tooling and libraries, this could be the role for you.

As a team, we’re responsible for designing, building, and operating the services we consume from AWS, along with the software we run on top like Kubernetes, Cassandra, Prometheus, and Kafka. We’re also responsible for operating our three physical data centres, our network, and being on-call for the things we own and run.

To achieve this, we’re organised into three squads within the Platform Group; Infrastructure Platform, Storage Platform, and Backend Platform. Each squad is responsible for solving a specific set of problems for our customers and our engineers. We’re looking for engineers who are interested in joining our Infrastructure Platform or Storage Platform squads right now, but there are opportunities to move between them as you gain experience with our platform.

We’ve posted a good overview of our platform on our blog if you’d like to learn more.

We’re investing a lot of up-front effort in building a scalable, secure, and extensible architecture for our millions of customers. Come and help us build a state-of-the-art microservices platform and build the kind of bank you want to use.

Our engineers have a variety of different backgrounds

We have several non-graduates; only some of us studied Computer Science; some of us have worked in huge companies; some have only ever worked in startups; others are former consultants. As long as you enjoy learning new things, we’d love to talk to you. We do not ask for formal qualifications or degree requirements for any of our engineering roles.

We are actively creating an equitable environment for all of our engineers to thrive

Diversity and inclusion are a priority for us and we are making sure we have lots of support for all of our people to grow at Monzo. We provide a sponsorship framework in Engineering for women and people of colour; all of our leaders are trained on privilege awareness and we are creating partnerships with organisations dedicated to supporting underrepresented groups. You can read more in our 2020 Diversity and Inclusion report.

Monzo works in project-based sprints in small, interdisciplinary teams

We have around 150 engineers out of roughly 1,400 people in total - and we have big ambitions. There are many interesting challenges ahead, and we’re happy for people to move between teams or to specialise, whatever you prefer. As an engineer here you’d be able to work directly with anyone across the company, and we run regular knowledge-sharing sessions so you’ll learn heaps about everything from how banks work to effective communication.

We encourage an open and transparent working environment

You can get involved in any aspect of the business you are interested in and, following Stripe’s example, all emails in the company are visible in an email archive. We contribute to open source software as much as possible. We’ve also made our product roadmap public and give sneak peeks of features in our community forum. Our technology blog is a good place to learn even more about what we do!

At Monzo you will get to work with a lot of exciting new technology.

We rely heavily on the following tools and technologies:

You should apply if:

Our open roles are for mid-level to senior Site Reliability Engineers at present. Apply if:

  • the work we’re doing sounds exciting!
  • you’re a software engineer at heart and you’re comfortable writing software to solve problems
  • you’re interested in distributed systems and writing resilient, scalable software
  • you have strong experience working on the backend of a technology product
  • you’re familiar with some of our Platform technologies, or specialise in just one part
  • you want to help build, scale and operate a platform to support a product that you (and everyone you know) use every day
  • you’re keen to learn more about new technologies and the arcane inner workings of the financial industry
  • you’re comfortable working in a team that deals with ambiguity

Logistics

Salary ranges between £59,000 - £116,000 plus stock options and other benefits.

We can help you relocate to London & we can sponsor visas.

This role can be based in our London office, but we’re open to distributed working (as long as you can spend around 20% of your time in London).

We have payroll set up in four countries: the UK, Ireland, France, and Spain. Right now, we can only hire people who work from those countries and we’ll keep this updated with new ones as we expand and are able to hire from more places 🌎

We’re usually always hiring for engineers, so there’s no closing date for this job.

We offer flexible working hours and trust you to work enough hours to do your job well, at times that suit you and your team.

Diversity and inclusion is a priority for us – if we want to solve problems for people around the world, our team has to represent our customers.

Engineering at Bud

The software engineering team is tasked with solving highly technical problems to enable solutions that tangibly benefit the lives of millions of people. From how to scale our solutions to tens of millions of users in the most effective manner, to integrating hundreds of third-party businesses, data is key to our business and we need passionate developers to help capture it, store it, transform it, research it and most importantly secure it.

What is it like to work for Bud?

We could play buzzword bingo but one of our core values is ‘Authentic’ and the best way to demonstrate this is by sharing our employee engagement dashboard. This provides a weekly engagement and NPS score giving you a true reflection of life at Bud. All data collected is realtime & anonymised so we have no control over what you see.

The dashboard is interactive so check it out here and have a look at what the numbers mean, https://bit.ly/2MhjAZT

What is the role paying?

Based on our extensive benchmarking we have budgeted at £55,000-£75,000 per annum + 5% options on equity which vests over 3 years, with a 1 year cliff.

What are the perks?

🏖 25 days holiday (excluding bank holidays)! You can carry up to 5 over the following year if you wish.

🧘‍♂️🧘Health and Wellbeing Allowance! We have a monthly allowance of £50 for all employees to use towards wellbeing activities such as classes or a gym membership.
👩‍💻👨‍💻Flexible working! We encourage autonomy here at Bud. We trust you to work in a way that will enable you to deliver your best work. Bud supports flexible working; we want you to perform at your best and recognise that other issues will arise from time to time.

💰We match up to 5% of your salary in our pension plan.

🎒You’ll be provided with a brand new MacBook or PC, and any computer accessories you need so you’ll have the best tools for the job!

🚆Season Ticket loan

🌱 The biggest motivation for people is learning and developing, our people have up to £500 per annum of learning and development opportunities funded by Bud.

🤹‍♂️🤹‍♀️ We’re big on keeping Bud a social team, so Christmas and Summer parties can be a big deal. We also put on events and have a new social committee every quarter to keep it exciting in normal times. At the moment we have remote events which change often depending on what the teams are interested in.

A bit more about us

We’re a diverse group of people. With backgrounds ranging from data science to music production, more than 80% of our team come from outside the world of finance – providing us with a unique perspective as we help consumers feel more in control of their lives. For us, an interest in people comes first; finance follows.

More about what we’re doing

The APIs and infrastructure we’re building are designed to place the power of personal data back into the hands of normal people. Picture this: a world where your bank knew you were paying too much for your gas bill and could switch you to a more suitable provider, or understood your savings targets and could automatically find you a better deal. That’s what we’re working towards.

We believe that diversity will make us better

Bud’s mission is to create the world’s most compelling financial data products. Getting there requires a workforce as diverse as the people we create our products for, be that in terms of age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, or ways of thinking. We truly believe that these differences will make us grow as a company and a team. We strive to create a workplace and culture where our people are empowered, supported, given equal opportunities and can bring their authentic selves to work.

Job Description

Organise is striving to build a team that reflects the diversity of our community and is truly inclusive. We welcome applications from under-represented groups, particularly people of colour, trans and non-binary people, new parents, and disabled people.

💫 Who we are

Organise is a fast-growing startup on a mission to give everyone the tools, network and confidence to improve their life at work. Our vision is for a world in which decent, fairly paid work is available and accessible to all, and where all of us are treated with dignity and respect at work.

More than 1 million people are already using Organise. We put power in people’s hands, building a progressive force for change inside companies.

The Organise staff team pride ourselves on nimble, focused workplace campaigns. That means our team is decisive, ambitious and happy to take risks. We’re characterised by our energy and enthusiasm; we’d rather aim high and see what happens, than play it safe. We’re passionate about putting Organise members first – we believe change at work happens when more people get involved.

We’re expanding our team and building out our platform to include a peer-to-peer network. We’re building a space for people to build power and support each other at work pseudonymously. A space for our core members to talk to each other in a space their boss can’t see. Small monthly subscriptions from members will verify their identity. The Organise network is paid for and protected by the workers. We currently operate in the UK, and are aiming to launch in the US by 2022.

Read more about our principles:

Principles - Organise

“I can’t believe it! It’s only been a week since I started my Organise campaign to stamp out harassment in gyms. And already, the CEOs of Pure Gym and The Gym Group want to talk about how they can make their gyms safer.” Organise member, April 2021

🙌 About the role and our team

We’re a team who:

  • Are passionate about making high quality digital products that give our users power to improve their lives at work

  • Can collaborate effectively, inspire other team members, and start from a position of empathy

  • Understand the business and social mission of Organise, and work with the broader team to prioritise ideas and features that will deliver for our users

  • Are comfortable working in an early-stage environment, and the uncertainty (fun!) that change can bring. We get the right balance between thoroughly-tested code, and getting things done

We’re looking to scale our engineering team to build out our network product, on an infrastructure that’s fit to scale with us.

We have a great starting point: hundreds of thousands of active users that love the Organise product, a straightforward deployment process, and a big focus on great user experience. We have plans to ensure scalability while we grow as a team - pairing as much as we can, an agile approach to product development and dedicated time to evaluate and improve our processes.

We build most of our software in Ruby (mostly Rails) and React, use Postgres hosted on AWS RDS for our databases, and use Heroku to host most of our web applications.

As Lead Engineer you will:

  • Play a leading role shaping the culture and developer experience of the engineering team - building a team that has a deep commitment to delivering products that empower our users and improve working life for everyone

  • Work closely with our CTO and CEO to set priorities and direction for our product and infrastructure. You’ll play a scrum master role for development of our network product - inspiring and setting clear direction for team members

  • Get to know (and work on) the entire product and infrastructure - you’ll spend time with our campaign coaches and Organise users to see our product in action. You’ll get into the detail of how our tech empowers members to improve their lives at work, and you’ll feed ideas from the whole team into our tech strategy

  • Work directly with our backend engineers to improve our infrastructure, so that we’re ready to scale globally for millions of users

  • Support, coach and develop engineers to thrive in their roles through regular 121s, feedback and team retrospectives

💪 You should apply if

  • What we’re building at Organise excites you!

  • You have experience managing and developing software engineers and building collaborative, caring, and high performing teams

  • You have experience with Ruby on Rails and React

  • You are curious and passionate about solving problems and building products that empower millions of users

  • You enjoy thinking about data and architecture, and can demonstrate an understanding of good database design

  • You have experience leading product development in a scrum/agile environment

  • You have experience setting priorities at a high level - bringing together long-term infrastructure goals and product design

  • You have experience working with legacy codebases

  • You are able to communicate effectively and work well with a diverse range of non-technical colleagues

  • You are open-minded and willing to learn new approaches to your role and our culture

🥳 You’ll benefit from:

  • Equity in the business

  • Wellbeing benefit and access to mental health support with Spill

  • Remote working budget

  • Learning & development budget + progression support

  • Involved in other aspects of the business, from strategy, management and training, to shaping team culture

  • Being part of something that’s both commercially successful and socially important

💥 Some highlights from 2021

  • Using Organise, Amazon drivers landed national media coverage, including an exclusive BBC Newsnight investigation, exposing their working conditions & calling on Amazon CEO to lower their parcel targets back to a safe level. They’ve also met directly with MPs and got the Amazon CEO grilled in front of Parliament. 40% of drivers have had their targets lowered to a safer level now as a result - a huge win for their collective action.

  • Over 100,000 members pressured the government to abandon their plans to scrap the laws protecting paid holidays and rest breaks (working time directive) - including sending tens of thousands of messages sent directly to the Business Secretary in the 24 hours leading up to the U-turn. Civil servants tell us (off the record) that the department were ‘astonished’ by the level of public backlash to the plans.

  • Dan*, a Census worker, started a campaign when he noticed Census temporary workers were being asked to travel to attend their first-day induction without being offered to have their travel expenses covered. In response to thousands of people joining the campaign, ONS has agreed to make sure all temporary workers are reimbursed for their travel expenses. With this and the update to the Census Jobs FAQs page clarifying the expenses policy, Census workers can start their jobs without being out of pocket.

  • After shortlisting based on your answers to the application questions, we’ll invite you to a 20 minute call to chat through the role and a bit more about you and our culture

  • If both sides decide this could potentially be the right opportunity for you, we’ll invite you to an interview over zoom, followed by a practical task. This interview and task will relate to the tasks you might do in the role, and for us to understand your current skills. We’ll also give you plenty of time to ask questions, learn more about Organise and what it’s like to work as part of our team.

  • If both sides are keen, then we’ll invite you to a final interview that will focus on team culture and how you work best. You’ll also have to ask any final questions about the role and working at Organise

Engineering at Bud

The software engineering team are tasked with solving highly technical problems to enable solutions that tangibly benefit the lives of millions of people. From how to scale our solutions to tens of millions of users in the most effective manner of integrating hundreds of third-party businesses. Data is key to our business and we need passionate developers to help capture it, store it, transform it, research and most importantly secure it.

What is it like to work for Bud?

We could play buzzword bingo but one of our core values is ‘Authentic’ and the best way to demonstrate this is by sharing our employee engagement dashboard. This provides a weekly engagement and NPS score giving you a true reflection of life at Bud. All data collected is realtime & anonymised so we have no control over what you see.

The dashboard is interactive so check it out here and have a look at what the numbers mean, https://bit.ly/2MhjAZT

A bit more about us

We’re a diverse group of people. With backgrounds ranging from data science to music production, more than 80% of our team come from outside the world of finance – providing us with a unique perspective as we help consumers feel more in control of their lives. For us, an interest in people comes first; finance follows.

More about what we’re doing

The apps and infrastructure we’re building are designed to place the power of personal data back into the hands of normal people. Picture this: a world where your bank knew you were paying too much for your gas bill and could switch you to a more suitable provider, or understood your savings targets and could automatically find you a better deal. That’s what we’re working towards.

We believe that diversity will make us better.

Bud’s mission is to make the money part of people’s lives simple. To get there, we need a workforce that is diverse as the people we create our products for. Which means we need people who have different backgrounds and experiences, who are diverse in age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, and ways of thinking. We truly believe that these differences will make us grow as a company and a team. We strive to create a workplace and culture where our people are empowered, supported, given equal opportunities and can bring their authentic selves to work.
