Job Description

Credit Kudos is a venture-backed fintech startup and challenger credit bureau that uses financial behaviour to measure creditworthiness. Our technology transforms the way credit checking and credit scores work by generating a more accurate and holistic view of a borrower's creditworthiness. We’re working with lenders to help them make better, fairer credit decisions and with consumers to help them access fair, affordable credit.

We’re building a credit bureau the right way - with the customer involved and transparent throughout. We’re looking for talented and creative engineers who share our vision.

We're looking for ambitious engineers

Our company is growing and we're searching for the next generation of experienced engineers to both help shape and nurture our engineering culture as we grow and deliver high-quality products for the benefit of the whole population.

We have people with backgrounds in massive companies, small companies, and a couple for whom this is their first job. We’re looking for people who want to learn and grow as much as lead and coach; if that sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.

We work closely together as a company

We’re a small team with a big vision, so no-one specialises too much - we wear many hats week-to-week. We’re grappling with a large problem so there are plenty of challenges to be faced but we face them one sprint at a time. Your role here would see you working with the founders of the company and the rest of the team on a wide range of issues to bring our vision of a better credit bureau to reality.

You can work with a host of great technologies

To give you a flavour of our technical stack, we use:

  • Golang and Ruby on Rails for our core applications and APIs
  • Python for our data processing + science
  • TypeScript with React and Redux for most of our front-end flows
  • Brand new Open Banking APIs for collecting financial data
  • Postgres for our data storage
  • Docker for running everything reliably
  • AWS for all our infrastructure (managed as code via Terraform)

Should you apply?

(Yes!) We’re looking for people who:

  • are excited by the work we’re doing
  • would like to be engaged in meaningful work
  • are comfortable bottoming out problems in open discussion
  • are interested in building a data-oriented company
  • love writing elegant and well-tested software
  • have experience building distributed systems

What we value:

  • Motivation, enthusiasm and passion for our mission to take on the big credit bureaus
  • Expansive thinking, transparency, honesty and a good sense of humour
  • Results and efficiency rather than hours in the office

**What you’ll get: **

  • Competitive salary and stock options
  • Flexible working arrangements, generous leave and a dog-friendly office. See full list of benefits - plus a bit more about working for us - here
  • A ton of support, but an opportunity to run your own schedule and role
  • The opportunity to develop your role and responsibilities as the company grows

We're a small and expanding software development team, building an enterprise application with a highly-polished UI, using the very best and latest techniques. We employ an iterative, design-led process where everyone on the team gets a say.

Our product is a single-page JavaScript application loosely-coupled to a back end that's built on Go microservices and legacy PHP. We use microservices for all new features and Go is our chosen language to do this. In parallel we are migrating our older codebase to Go microservices.

We're agile and manage our work using a gentle Kanban process with daily stand-ups and we encourage a lightweight, productive approach to development. We can allocate projects that build upon your current strengths, and we offer a personal development approach that you may help shape.

  • Provide AI and machine vision to detect duplicate files and provide auto-tagging and OCR
  • Create a metrics & reporting system to track usage of features, document downloads and image views
  • Implement a full SFTP client & server interface to integrate with SLR Cameras and legacy systems
  • Extend workflow and automation microservices to create intuitive automated channel publishing tools
  • Automate orchestration of microservices in our product e.g. exploring Kubernetes
  • < your idea here! >

We're looking for

  • Someone who's positive about Go and wishes to embrace this exciting language
  • Proven back-end coding skills using either PHP or Go and for Linux
  • Demonstrable interest in Go—from industry, self directed learning or personal projects
  • An appreciation for continuous unit and integration testing

  • Ability to work with a large, live, production codebase
  • Familiarity with relational databases e.g. MySQL or PostgreSQL
  • Familiarity with CI/CD, preferably within a Git-based workflow
  • Optionally, familiarity with porting an OO monolith to a microservice architecture
  • Someone considering mid level back-end jobs such as: Go Developer | Go Microservices Developer | Golang Developer| Node.js Developer | PHP Developer | Python Developer | Back End Engineer | Back End Developer etc.

You may bring—or like to gain—skills exploring any of the following

  • Containers, containers as services and automated container deployment
  • Large-scale storage, manipulation and streaming of multimedia
  • Machine intelligence, visual recognition or similar numerical computation
  • Production experience in systems configuration, monitoring, logging, and metrics gathering

Our current technology mix - we'll help you get up to speed

Go (aka Golang) | JavaScript | PHP | NGINX | MySQL | SockJS | RabbitMQ | Debian | macOS | VMware | Git | Jira | Bitbucket | Bamboo | Slack | Basecamp

Salary and benefits

  • c.£50,000— negotiable —we're keeping an open mind
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Personal development plan that you can shape for related training/certifications/conferences
  • 25 days holiday + public holidays | flexible hours | bicycle and free car parking | on site cafe | good coffee and tea | fresh fruit | choice of high end workstation | an adorable Beagle to brighten the office

Working remotely: The Third Light development team embraced remote working a few years ago and now has workers in more than one country. We strive to provide a friendly, fun, supportive remote-working culture and we refine our processes to make remoting easier. We will welcome your ideas and contributions. We provide computing equipment and cover reasonable costs incurred from running a home office.

Normally, as a new starter, you'd come to the office for a few weeks to get to know each other. Due to Coronavirus you will no-doubt join us remotely, at least temporarily, which will bring interesting challenges in how best to introduce you to, and integrate you into, the development team—how to train you, how to help familiarise yourself with our systems and ways of working. We see this as an interesting challenge so we’re working it out at the moment. We're planning a fully-remote ‘onboarding’ process with team meetups, one-to-one sessions and pair programming as well as online social gatherings for you when you join.

If you'd prefer to primarily work from our office this option will still be available to you after lockdown.

£80,000 to £110,000 a year
April 2020
1 Applicants This Week

Job Description

Head of Engineering

We are seeking a hands-on Head of Engineering for our well funded e-commerce fulfillment startup

At Bezos, our vision is to Deliver Happiness: For our team, for the end consumers, for our e-commerce sellers as well as our logistics partners.

Exciting times in e-commerce: E-commerce sales in Europe is projected to be £406 billion by 2023, expected to grow 8% per year between 2018-2023. The growth is driven by consumers that increasingly buy more online as well as the emergence of small and medium e-commerce sellers, which have grown at 18% and 28% per year, respectively between 2009-2017. There are 200,000 small and medium e-commerce sellers in the UK alone, selling their products through multiple channels, including marketplaces such as Amazon and eBay, their own websites, and on social media like Facebook and Instagram. Today, these small and medium sellers are ignored by the large incumbent logistics service providers and we are on a mission to change that.

Building a next generation Fulfillment-as-a-Service platform: With this explosive growth in e-commerce, the demand for e-commerce fulfilment and delivery is booming. Bezos is a next generation Fulfillment-as-a-Service (FaaS) platform, that allows small and medium e-commerce sellers to outsource their storage, fulfilment, delivery, and returns and focus on what is more important: growing their businesses. Bezos’ operational model is based on partnering with certified logistics suppliers that will execute the different services on our behalf. We believe there is a massive market opportunity to serve these currently unattended and fast growing small and medium e-commerce sellers. We believe that the e-commerce logistics landscape will give place to significant disruption opportunities, and we are planning on taking a leading role to achieve them.

Two founders with proven track records: The founding team consists of Diego Lijtmaer and Vernon Tjon-Soei-Len, who are two seasoned technology executives with experience in e-commerce, the gig economy and last mile delivery industry. Diego built the business development and logistics functions at Just Eat Plc (food delivery, FTSE 100), founded and ran a hospitality business Bacanal and worked in investment banking at UBS (LinkedIn profile here). Vernon was the Director of Amazon Flex UK (part of Amazon’s Last Mile Product & Technology team) and part of the Senior Leadership Team of Amazon Logistics UK, and prior to that worked at Zipcar, Bain & Company and JPMorgan (LinkedIn profile here).

We are looking for an exceptional technology leader: Someone that gets excited about the adventure of a startup and wants to build a world class billion dollar business. Someone that enjoys transforming industries, that enjoys changing the way businesses and consumers think about delivering and receiving e-commerce orders. Someone that is hands on, solves problems, and gets their hands dirty in the execution. Someone that has a demonstrated track record of building amazing technology and building and leading high performance tech teams.

Key responsibilities:

  • Build Bezos’ Fulfillment-as-a-Service platform
  • Lead technology strategy, develop the technical solution, the architecture, the integration with other processes and systems and develop the Artificial Intelligence engine that manages our processes
  • Own the engineering product roadmap, prioritising development efforts in line with company objectives
  • Build a world class tech team: Hire, onboard and develop the best talent and cultivate an inspiring team culture with us
  • Collaborate with sellers, logistics providers and internal teams to fix bugs and improve our products
  • Part of the executive team, making sure the company’s technology is aligned with the business objectives

Must have requirements:

  • 5 years+ experience of software and technology development, ideally 2 years+ in a startup
  • Experience in developing technology for e-commerce, logistics, last mile or supply chain
  • Experience in back-end integrations, APIs and microservices, cloud architecture fundamentals (AWS or Google Cloud), databases
  • A charismatic technology leader: Experience in hiring, managing and leading engineering teams
  • A strategic thinker and a doer: the ability to build bridges between strategy and execution and balance short term and long term objectives
  • A product-focused engineer that is customer-centric
  • Ability to communicate complex technology solutions to different stakeholders
  • Passion for delivering results, but also learning from failure
  • Analytical and data-driven: support decisions with hard facts, data and numbers
  • Experience and ability to lead agile product engineering in a fast growing start up
  • Knowledge of existing and emerging technologies: Evaluate multiple technologies and identify those that are the best fit for the business
  • A positive outlook, boundless energy and thrive on collaboration in agile and startup environments
  • Good vibes: Fostering team spirit; someone all developers look up to and aspire to work with

Preferred requirements (nice to have):

  • Understanding of e-commerce platforms (Marketplaces, Shopify, WooCommerce, Amazon), logistics systems such as warehouse and inventory management systems
  • Experience with managing distributed/remote software developers
  • Experience with node.js or Golang (Go)
  • Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
  • Degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering, Electrical Engineering or a related field

We strive to create an exciting and amazing opportunities where our team members love to work and have fun with each other. We offer a competitive compensation package which includes an attractive base salary and stock options.

Job Description

Rebank is building the financial operating system for high-growth companies. The way companies grow has evolved over the last decade; how they manage their finances hasn't.

Our customers used to rely on error-prone spreadsheets and outdated internal processes but with Rebank they can manage their bank accounts, easily send funds across the world, and access analytics and insights all from a single login.

This is the first step towards a new kind of banking and we have the backing of great investors including Y Combinator to help us achieve that.

Here's how we work

We believe that deep technical expertise and an understanding of the problems we solve for our customers are equally important. We choose the right technology for the job because we understand how it works and how it benefits our customers. You'll be joining as an early employee so you will have significant autonomy over your role and influence in how we grow the company.

Currently, our tech stack utilises the following

  • Go (Golang)
  • PostgreSQL
  • Redis
  • AWS
  • Docker

You will spend time on

  • Designing and implementing our core global banking and payments systems
  • Building robust identity and access management systems
  • Integrating with banks and financial service providers
  • Ensuring our devops and security architecture is at the high standard our customers expect of a bank
  • Collaborating with design and product management

You should have

  • 3+ years experience with Go or other strongly-typed languages
  • A desire for solving complex engineering problems at scale
  • A high-degree of independence and drive
  • A strong knowledge of security practices
  • Comfortable working with constant change and product evolution
  • Constructively collaborate with teams across engineering, design and product
  • Working knowledge of the entire web stack - from DNS to CSS
  • The desire for a competitive salary and equity - everyone in the company shares in our success

It’s a bonus if you have experience in

  • Payments and/or banking
  • Devops (docker/kubernetes/terraform)

Culture at Rebank

👩🏽‍🔬 Learn from users, build what they want

Be inquisitive about the problems we're solving for customers and how it impacts their day. A deeper understanding of our users helps us focus on building the best experiences.

🎯 Be product focused

Align user outcomes with business outcomes. Err on the side of risky ideas with high potential. Take pride in creating beautiful product workflows.

ᾞE Plan collaboratively, execute independently

Collaborate on ideas. Take action early and learn as you go. Work with a high degree of autonomy.

We're an equal opportunity employer (and very pet friendly).
