Bud’s mission is simple. We’re here to create the world’s most compelling financial data products. The products we’re building are used by some of the world’s most prestigious institutions to help millions of their customers take control of their finances.
You’ll be leading the development of some of Bud’s most critical internal services that are utilised by product teams across Bud as well as owning a number of core platform exposed services that are non-product specific for domains such as authentication and traffic management. Every request that hits the Bud Platform will end up touching at least one of the services you’re responsible for. You’ll be contributing to Bud-wide architecture as well as actively developing in Bud’s Platform & Security [Product] Team where you’ll be the driving software engineering force in the team (which is mostly composed of SRE/Platform Engineers). You’ll also be a core channel of representing the perspective of backend engineers in the team and helping the team to solve cross-engineering problems.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
We offer competitive salaries in line with industry benchmarks, set using extensive market data. We review salaries on an annual basis to make sure we continue to reward people well for their contributions at Bud.
Anyone joining Bud is granted stock options and the opportunity to invest in what we are building and developing, and to get to share in our future successes.
Wellbeing Allowance 🏋️♀️🧘♂️
We understand how important it is to look after your physical and mental health, and also that this looks different for everyone. To support this, Bud has a £50 monthly flexible wellbeing allowance which can be used towards your own wellness, whether that’s a gym membership, meal-box subscription, massages or something else!
Learning & Development 📚
As part of our commitment to developing our people, all employees at Bud have an annual £500 pot available to use towards their learning and development - think books, courses & events - the choice is yours.
We also have quarterly R&D days, giving you the opportunity to take a break for 2 days from live projects and work on something that’s inspired you, either independently or as part of a collaborative team.
Flexible Working ⏳
As a trusted member of the Bud, you’ll have the freedom and flexibility to manage your time and routine in a way that suits you, and your team, allowing you to deliver your best work. This role can be based in our London office, or fully remote/distributed in the UK.
Time Off 🏖️
We’re a team that likes to work hard, so we need to make sure we balance this with time to rest and relax. We offer 25 days holiday, plus the usual bank holidays, plus additional time off over the holiday season.
We want to make sure everyone is set up to work effectively and comfortably - so you’ll get to choose your own kit, including any additional equipment you might need to work from home.
We’re big on keeping Bud a social place to work, with big quarterly events (we throw an epic summer party), regular team socials & monthly company breakfasts. This year we’ve stepped up our virtual social scene with quiz nights, virtual cocktail making, book clubs, and online workouts.
We are big advocates of sustainable transport and travel, and are members of a cycle to work scheme. We also have season ticket loans available.
We believe in helping our staff save for retirement, with Bud matching pension contributions up to 5%
