Basecamp Rails Programmer
  • Remote Anywhere
  • Full-time

4 hours ago

Description

We have two rare openings on our Core Product team for Rails programmers. We’ll be accepting applications for the next two weeks, aiming for a flexible start date in October.

We strongly encourage candidates of all different backgrounds and identities to apply. This is an opportunity for us to bring in a different perspective and we’re eager to further diversify our company. Basecamp is committed to building an inclusive, supportive place for you to do the best work of your career. We aren’t looking for ideological clones, but for people who share our beliefs about writing software well.

About the Job
As a programmer on the Core team, you’ll work on shaped projects, big & small, over six-week cycles, typically in tandem with a designer. We’re a small team (just three programmers and three designers) and we work quickly but calmly. You’ll join us, and be responsible for driving projects from concept to completion in an environment of autonomy and creativity.

As a team our focus is firmly on the web: the core technology that powers our applications on all platforms. Ours are majestic monoliths, built using Ruby on Rails. We embrace a classic “HTML over the wire” architecture, of server-rendered HTML, progressively enhanced with JavaScript and CSS. If you think this sounds a lot like the Golden Age of Web Development, well, we couldn’t agree more.

This is an extremely exciting time to join the team. We’re currently all-in on HEY, our brand-new email service, and there’s a ton of fresh work to be done, bugs to fix, and features to polish. That’s where you’ll spend the bulk of your time to start. But we also have our fair share of work supporting Basecamp versions past, present, and future, as well as a back catalogue of applications that we’re committed to maintaining Until The End of the Internet.

Here are some things we’ve worked on recently to give you a sense of what you’ll be doing day-to-day:

  • Building out a subscription system to allow for free trials, upgrades, credit card payments, cancellations, and everything else needed to launch a new product
  • Creating an email export system using the MBOX format, ensuring that even large mailboxes can be exported efficiently
  • Designing a global document browser for convenient access to every mail attachment from every sender, filterable and ordered by recency
  • Revising our billing system to charge EU VAT where applicable, from payment flows and invoices to internal APIs and support tooling
  • Blocking activity trackers and spy-pixels in incoming mail using a variety of techniques, including image and asset proxying for broad protection
  • Collaborating with the Android and iOS teams on cross-cutting and platform-specific features
  • Investigating and fixing a race condition when processing incoming email that’s resulting in random duplicate entries

About You
We’re looking for candidates with strong track records of putting Rails to work and bringing products to life. You should be experienced in the framework, in Ruby, and with the staples of full-stack web development: HTTP, HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. But just because you're experienced doesn't mean we expect you to hit the ground running. You'll have a gentle, intentional on-boarding experience and time to learn & grow comfortable with our systems, processes, and people.

You might have a Computer Science degree or you might not. That’s not what we’re looking for. We care about what you can do and how you do it, not about how you got here. A history of conscientious, thoughtful work speaks volumes.

You’re a Manager of One. A committed generalist, eager learner, and curator of the essential. You take ownership and you see things through. You can take a stand yet commit even when you disagree. This is a challenging position for a senior-level programmer, but imposters take heart; we are too.

You're a clear writer. The bulk of our work is written, from the code and interfaces we design, to the pull request discussions and long-form proposals we make. Effective, concise writing leads to effective, concise code.

Basecamp is a remote-first company, and this is a remote job. We're hiring from anywhere that can maintain 3-4 hours overlap with the US-Central Time zone during a normal working day. This might been a 11:00-19:00 schedule from Europe, but we're not hiring from locations that require a graveyard shift to make the overlap happen.

Applicants from outside of the US will be offered a contractor role on comparable terms and equal pay with our domestic employees.

Benefits & Compensation
Basecamp pays in the top 10% of the industry based on San Francisco rates. Same position, same pay, no matter where you live. The salary for this position is $186,850 (Senior Programmer).

Benefits at Basecamp are all about helping you lead a healthy life outside of work. We won’t treat your life as dead code to be optimized away with shallow perks. You won’t find lures to keep you coding ever longer. We believe quality time to focus on work starts with quality time to think, exercise, prepare a meal, be with family & friends, and of course, time to yourself.

We offer fully paid parental leave. We work 4-day weeks in the summer (Northern Hemisphere), and offer a month-long sabbatical every 3 years. We subsidize your home office, wellness and fitness interests, and continuing education. We offer a generous annual charitable contribution match. All on top of top-tier health insurance and a retirement plan with company match. See our full list.

How to Apply
Please submit an application that speaks directly to this position. Tell us about yourself, about what you can bring to Basecamp, and about Basecamp’s role in your future. Tell us about something you’ve done, something that’s relevant to the kind of work we do, something that excites you. Be descriptive, but don’t feel the need to write a novel -- 500 words or so should be plenty.

We’re accepting applications until August 19, 2020, at 7PM US-Central time. There’s no benefit to filing early, so take your time.

We expect to take a few weeks to review all applications. You’ll hear from us by September 4, about advancement to a take-home technical exercise. The exercise is representative of the kind of day-to-day work we do. We invite fewer than 20 candidates to this stage, and those candidates should expect to spend upwards of a full day (but no more!) completing this test. Please consider whether you'd be willing to dedicate that time before applying.

After the written test, the top candidates will proceed to the interview stages. Expect 2-3 interviews, all one hour, all remote, with your future colleagues, on your schedule. We'll talk through your background, your approach to work, and dive into your technical knowledge. No gotchas, brainteasers, or whiteboards.

We aim to make an offer by early October with a start date later that month.

Please note that we’re unable to offer individual feedback during the screening process. We usually see 1,000+ applications for developer roles, and our hiring team simply doesn’t have the bandwidth to offer personalized feedback before the code-review round.

This is a demanding application process and significant career move to consider. We appreciate you giving us that consideration, and we promise to give you our full attention in return. We look forward to hearing from you!

Silverfin Experienced Ruby Developer
  • Remote CET +/- 3h
  • Full-time

10 days ago

If you’re any good at Ruby, this is probably not the first job ad you’ve seen, so we’ve done our best to stand out while also accurately presenting what we’re all about. If it sounds like you would enjoy working with us, don’t hesitate to apply or drop us a line with questions on engineering-recruitment@silverfin.com.

Ahum. Here it comes.

What’s a Silverfin?

At Silverfin we’re trying to apply the promise of software to the age-old industry of accounting. With our SaaS we’re automating a large chunk of the busy-work that accountants are currently handling manually, and are building new tools so they can provide better services to their customers. We aim to optimize their workflow in such a way that accountants can spend more time on the much more impactful and rewarding work of advising their customers, the business owners.

The good news is we’re succeeding in doing exactly that. Every day more than 15.000 financial service professionals use Silverfin to help and advise more than 200.000 businesses. Our customers adore us! The even better news is there’s still plenty left to work on, and that’s where we hope you come in.

What makes the engineering team at Silverfin special?

We’re a remote-first engineering team of 25 people distributed in 14 different countries. A priority for us is maintaining proper work-life balance. We avoid meetings as much as possible, accept deadlines only when absolutely necessary, and never expect anyone to work longer hours than they’ve signed up for. A day in our working lives is pretty boring in this regard, and we feel that’s exactly how it should be.

Working with us means you can be flexible with your schedule. It’s OK to disappear for a few hours in the middle of the day to run some errands, get a haircut, pick up the kids — whatever reason, you don’t need to explain yourself. You also fully decide when you take time off: our team is sufficiently varied and well organized that there are always enough people around to handle the load, and in the rare cases it’s not, we will decrease the load instead of asking people to move their holiday.

Being remote-first means we favor asynchronous communication. We don’t shy away from chatting in Slack, but the important decisions or discussions are done in Gitlab issues, over email, or in our wiki, so there’s a written, persisted record. We’re mindful of maintaining long chunks of focussed time, which means we avoid @-mentions or PMs on Slack, and other triggers and interrupts. We encourage using Slack’s DnD function, especially when you’re not working!

We’d be really happy to welcome you in our #dev channel, but it’s not just virtual: we make sure we regularly get to see each other in real life too. Twice a year we fly the whole engineering team together to a different location in Europe, and at least once a year we join up with the rest of the company so we can spend some time together with the other departments.

What does working at Silverfin look like?

We work in nimble teams around 5 people in size, with each team taking ownership of a specific set of features of the application. Teams are responsible for a full slice across the stack, so both the backend as well as the frontend of each part is maintained by the same people.

You’ll be supported by our UI designer who develops and maintains HTML and CSS components into a reusable UI-framework, and even builds Vue.js prototypes where necessary, handling compatibility problems with different browsers for you, and making sure everything is responsive as well.

Our ops team ensures things run smoothly, deploys happen correctly, and will work with you when issues should arise. We’re enthusiastic followers of the devops mindset, which means ops and developers work together to solve problems, and empower each-other to be self-sufficient, instead of throwing problems over the wall to the “other side”.

Our stack is Vue.js and vanilla JS with a sprinkling of jQuery on the frontend and an up-to-date Rails monolith on the backend. We use PostgreSQL and Redis for persistence and caching, and everything is running on a Kubernetes cluster in Google Cloud. Our daily tools include GitLab, Quip and Slack, with Zoom as our remote conferencing tool of choice.

No code gets deployed without a code-review by a peer and testing is a must. Our pipeline automates deployment when the suite is green, and deploys happen dozens of times a day. Each team is currently doing Kanban, but they’re free to follow whatever process suits them best. There are regular retros held to work towards continuous improvement.

Software for accountants is not considered to be very exciting, but we have our fair share of technical challenges. To give you a sense of scale: our database exceeds 7TB*, and our largest table recently crossed the 10 billion row mark. We interface with more than 30 different external APIs, and provide third parties an API of our own.

*: Our ops team noted that this actually isn’t that hard to achieve if you’re just indexing everything, but it still sounds impressive, right?

What does your future look like?

Personal growth is key to staying motivated. At Silverfin you don’t need to move to management in order to get promoted. We see the individual contributor track and the management track as two different growth paths which every engineer can follow and switch between. You can be promoted, including pay raises, as a contributor just like as a manager.

Everyone has a €1000 yearly budget to spend on conferences, courses, workshops or other training to improve their skills and level up. This also includes accommodation, travel costs. If the conference is on a workday you’ll get paid like any normal day. Silverfin colleagues regularly visit conferences across the world. Are you going to Euruko this year? Come say hi!

We’re looking to hire a lot of new colleagues, and by the end of the year we’d like to have a couple of more teams. Each new team would also need a new teamlead, and we prefer to promote from within the engineering team. This means if you’d like to step onto the management track, there will be plenty of opportunities to do so in the near future. We pro-actively keep track of who would be interested, and provide feedback and learning opportunities to work towards such a goal.

What are we looking for?

  • You’re experienced in both Ruby and Rails, and also understand where the boundaries lie between them. You can code in Ruby without any of Rails’ training wheels if necessary.
  • You’re up for mentoring coworkers and can give in-depth, productive feedback during code reviews. While you appreciate the small stuff, you recognize bikeshedding and can avoid its pitfalls.
  • You code with reason and can justify the important decisions you made during development.
  • You can communicate clearly in English, both written and verbally.
  • You know and can apply best practices when relevant. That means the usual like version control, testing, and refactoring; but also higher level concepts such as good object oriented design.
  • You're aware of the trade-offs involved in proper engineering and can make balanced business decisions, keeping in mind all the stakeholders of the project.
  • You’ve got opinions on code design and you can discuss them, but you’re professional enough to not let those opinions get in the way of a consensus if necessary.

What can we offer you?

  • Actual, proper work-life balance
  • Choose your own working hours and work 100% remotely
  • Personal growth training and opportunities
  • Join a distributed remote-first engineering team with 25 colleagues in 14 different countries
  • A refreshing work environment with professional, friendly and welcoming colleagues
  • A €1000 yearly budget for conferences, courses, workshops or other expenses that will improve your skills

Requirements

  • You have at least 4 years of experience working with Ruby, or 2 years of experience with Ruby and 4 years in other languages.
  • You get Rails
  • Your work hours have some overlap with EU business hours (we require your local timezone to be within CET +/- 3h)

Nice to have’s

These would be nice but are definitely not necessary. Don’t worry if none of the following applies to you.

  • Experience as a remote worker in a fully remote team
  • Experience with Javascript (ES6) and frontend frameworks
  • Experience working with large datasets and the problems they bring
  • Experience in Fintech
  • Accounting knowledge

Stripe Frontend Engineer, Payments Product
  • Remote Canada
  • Full-time

29 days ago

As Stripe looks beyond the API, we are hiring engineers to help build beautiful, usable interfaces for businesses building on top of Stripe. From constructing checkout workflows to routing money and making sophisticated reports, Stripe aims to provide great interfaces for understanding your business, fulfilling customers’ needs, and creating secure, usable payment forms. Stripe’s frontend libraries are loaded hundreds of times per second and account for tens of millions of dollars per day in online payments.

You might work on:

  • The new version of Stripe.js, Elements and Checkout. You’ll write code that Stripe’s users deploy to build powerful, performant, fraud-fighting checkout forms. Because Stripe.js runs in other people’s forms, globally, and across many different browsers, you’ll deal with tight performance constraints and bundle sizes. You’ll work on everything from build optimizations to API design to multi-frame platform abstractions to browser-specific animation tweaks, all in service of giving Stripe’s users less to worry about.
  • The Stripe Dashboard, which is Stripe’s single page application for running a business on the internet. What started out as a simple payments dashboard has grown to include business insights, account configuration and onboarding, security tools, Radar, Atlas, Billing, and every other product Stripe is building. Frontend engineers at Stripe work both on the platform for the Dashboard and on individual products themselves.
  • Support platform that powers our high-quality, high-touch support experience through products like live chat, click-to-call phone support, dynamic and contextual contact forms, and measure our success through quick customer satisfaction surveys.
  • Stripe’s vast array of internal tools, including Stripe Admin, used across teams to investigate merchants and charges, and Stripe Home, where Stripes go to learn about events, other Stripes, operating principles, and search our ever-growing internal knowledge base. Stripe amplifies its efficiency through investment in internal tools, and each of those tools has its own unique set of frontend engineering challenges and a tight feedback loop of approachable internal users.
  • Frontend experiences for Connect that make it as easy as possible to participate in the Internet economy and receive money online. Some of Stripe’s largest users are platforms that connect senders of payments with receivers of payments. Lyft connects riders to drivers, Kickstarter connects backers to projects, and Squarespace connects shoppers to online stores. All of them participate in doing business online, and all of them directly or indirectly use Stripe.

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • Ideally 7+ years of experience shipping high-quality products
  • Empathy with the many different types of users who use Stripe’s UIs
  • An interest in building UIs with modern tools like ES6, React, Redux, PostCSS, Flow, and Webpack
  • An ability to think through customer requirements to come up with high-impact ways of quickly solving their problems
  • A passion about performance, accessibility, and API design
  • A high bar for quality of code and quality of user experience
  • Comfortability working in a large frontend codebase with many stakeholders
  • Attention to the details

What’s it like to work at Stripe?

Stripe is helping the internet fulfill its potential as a platform for economic progress by building software tools that accelerate global economic access and technological development. Stripe makes it easy to start, run and scale an internet business from anywhere in the world.

Stripe is, at its heart, an engineering company. To provide a missing pillar of core internet infrastructure, we hire people with a broad set of technical skills (and from a wide variety of backgrounds) who are ready to take on some of the most challenging problems in the industry – from reliably handling 100M API requests per day, to building adaptive machine learning as a result of years of data science and infrastructure work, and enabling entrepreneurs worldwide to start a global internet business.

We look at Stripe as a constant work in progress and the same is true of our people; for all of us, we believe the best is yet to come. We’re here to support each other in our curiosity and creativity – which we pursue through thoughtful discussion and knowledge-sharing among a diverse set of peers and colleagues.

We encourage all engineers to transition teams once every year and a half and also take on short-term projects with other teams across Stripe. This enables engineers to learn how different parts of Stripe work while also establishing stronger ties and cross-pollination between groups.

We contribute to existing open-source projects and the people working on them, and we release several tools as open-source.

We want to work in a company of warm, inclusive people who treat their colleagues exceptionally well. The kind of people who are committed to going out of their way to help other Stripes in the short-term and pushing them to improve over the long-term (by helping them to get better at what they do).

We’re a highly cross-functional organization and view that as part of the fun: we design our space to encourage as much collaboration as possible. We have long tables in the kitchen for a reason (to enable everyone to meet new people and learn from them). We also have a culture of transparency that we carry through to email communication, ensuring that Stripes all around the world have the information they need to make good local decisions.

In both our products and our people, we aim to reflect, represent and advocate for all of our users, globally. Our users transcend geography, culture and language; what we share, collectively, is a drive to create a fairer, more economically interconnected world.

Slang Senior Back-End Product Engineer
  • Remote Anywhere
  • Full-time

30 days ago

We’re looking for talented individuals interested in joining a new and growing global company. At Slang, you’ll be an early team member of a well-funded startup spun out from MIT. We’re building a world-class team to revolutionize language learning with cutting-edge technology and beautiful design.

What we’re working on at Slang

Slang started at MIT as a research project on using AI and NLP to make learning a new language as efficient as possible. Our technology powers a highly adaptive e-learning platform that offers an unprecedented variety of specialized English courses and proficiency tests for career development in over fifty fields like Sales, Finance, Logistics, Medicine, and Law. With just a small team, we’ve already created the largest professional English offering in the world. Now, we’re scaling up to release 1,000 more courses over the next three years.

Learn more about our unique approach at slangapp.com. We’d love to field any questions you have about our product and vision!

What this role is about

If you’re interested in pioneering a way to apply cutting-edge technologies to online education, we would love to tell you more about our opportunity.

In this role, you’ll be involved in both product development and company strategy and execution — you’ll own the research, design, and development of the back ends of new features and you’ll help us refine our product roadmap. We have tens of thousands of active users and many subproblems in language learning to tackle.

As a senior-level member of the team, you will also have the opportunity to step into a technological leadership role as our Engineering Team grows over the next year. There is room at Slang for both technology-focused and management-focused senior-level engineers; a career path which best suits your own professional goals will be established.

In addition to day-to-day engineering needs, technology-focused senior engineers will be responsible for architecting full solutions to complex technological problems and establishing best practices for our engineering processes. Management-focused senior engineers will be responsible for mentorship of junior engineers, recruitment, and structuring the growth of Slang’s Engineering Team. All senior-level engineers play a strong role in code review and coaching.

Our codebase is built with best practices in mind and our product is designed with proper user and developer experience at the forefront of development. The work we’re facing encompasses interesting infrastructural hurdles and data-heavy modeling and algorithmic tasks.

Some of our technology comes from the open-source community, so be prepared to contribute back!

Some interesting problems we’re tackling:

  • How can we determine what parts of a language a user already knows from a small sample of test exercises? How should we decide which parts of a language a user should learn next? How can we answer these questions quickly?

  • How should we architect our database to support the growing number of activities our users submit every week (currently at more than a million per week)?

  • How can we aggregate and communicate the learning statistics of a company’s employees for display to their managers?

  • How can we analyze and leverage the massive amount of learner and content data we have to improve our learners’ experience?

Skills and technologies

  • Five or more years of experience in modern back-end web development, including:

  • Extensive experience with modern web API stacks and related technologies, with a preference for Ruby on Rails and/or Java experience.

  • Extensive experience with database technologies, data structures, and related optimization. We currently deal with large amounts of data in PostgreSQL and Redis.

  • Experience in engineering leadership roles, perhaps in a position like “tech lead” or “engineering manager.”

  • A strong desire to maintain a clean, reliable, maintainable, and efficient codebase.

  • Excellent discipline and focus, especially in autonomous environments, and strong English communication skills. We’re a small team and we’re moving quick!

  • A plus: interest or experience with computational linguistics, natural-language processing (NLP), language-learning, speech recognition, data science, or machine learning.

To make things easy, include your résumé, GitHub username, and/or a short description or link to something you’ve worked on that’s software- or tech-related. Perhaps a Ruby gem or an interesting data-science paper — surprise us!

Slang is an equal-opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are excited about creating an inclusive and healthy environment for all employees.

What Slang can offer you

Our compensation package includes a competitive salary and unique benefits.

Most importantly, we offer the special experience of being part of a fast-moving and quickly growing international company within the entrepreneurial ecosystems of Boston and MIT.

Where we're located

Our team is currently split between Boston, Ciudad de México, São Paulo, Bogotá and Medellín. We are recruiting great people in these locations and around the world.

Our US headquarters is located in the Cambridge Innovation Center in the heart of downtown Boston, easily accessible by public transportation and alongside other innovative companies. Our Colombia office is located in the Rosales neighborhood of Bogotá and in the Ruta N Innovation district of Medellín.

Interested?

Nava Frontend Engineer
  • Remote USA
  • Full-time

49 days ago

This job post is over 30 days old. It's very likely the position is already filled.
Try applying to a more recent job post instead.

Nava is at the forefront of reimagining how our government serves its people, and we’re looking for experienced designers and developers to help drive this mission forward.

You will work on small teams to build scalable infrastructure for our government -- designing, implementing, and delivering services that millions of Americans depend on. You care deeply about working on technology that improves people’s lives, but don’t think technology is always the answer. You are passionate about building large-scale systems that are inclusive, well-designed, fast, scalable, and secure, and you'll help set high standards for our teams in terms of simplicity, empathy, and accessibility.

You can work remotely, or work from one of Nava’s offices in DC, SF, or NYC.

Opportunities and Challenges

Nava provides opportunities to do meaningful, impactful, mission-oriented work. As a public benefit corporation, we have a social mission written into our founding charter. The people who work at Nava have a fiduciary duty to our stated mission: to improve access, effectiveness, and simplicity of government services. We see this as an opportunity, but it is also important to highlight the challenges we face in advance.

You will be working within the government ecosystem, which means working dynamically, with other government contractors and civil servants. Working with people outside of your company means you'll likely encounter different working styles and cultural norms. At the same time, working as part of a larger team allows us to deliver on projects of larger scale and complexity.

The government also imposes a level of bureaucracy that is typically not present in a company of our size in the private sector. We operate in a regulated environment, where checks and compliance is built into the process of building software. This can make the path to production slower and some decisions, such as tools and processes, lie outside of our control. However, beyond writing code, finding and recommending ways to improve the way government software is built is one of the highest-leverage ways we help fulfill our mission. While our work is to build new systems with up-to-date technology, we have to do that within an existing ecosystem. Our work is building functional, resilient software for production. We don't build flashy prototypes that don't work for real people.

What you'll do

  • Collaborate with the product team, government stakeholders, and other contractors to build new systems and make improvements to existing systems.
  • Design and spec out major functionality and flows.
  • Drive ideas from concept to production, from sketching and wireframing to implementation and launching to production.
  • Participate in planning and breaking down requirements into tasks.
  • Review code and give feedback on technical specs.
  • Make improvements by proposing new tools and practices.

What we're looking for

  • At least two years of experience working in an agile, multidisciplinary team environment, preferably designing and building medium or large-scale web applications
  • Experience mapping and driving systemic improvements within complex service environments
  • Understanding of web and mobile user interface design best practices
  • Significant experience in JavaScript, CSS, and responsive design
  • Demonstrated ability to design, build, and test semantic, accessible, Section 508 compliant web applications.
  • Understanding of inclusive design methodologies
  • Some experience with a modern JavaScript framework, such as React, Vue.js, Angular or Ember
  • Familiarity with a JavaScript testing framework such as Jest, Jasmine, or Mocha
  • Tenacity to dive into problems and iterate in working code
  • Equal parts systems thinker and advocate for users
  • Highly resourceful, reliable, and detail-oriented
  • Ability to think strategically around trade-offs and short term vs. long term benefits
  • An adaptive, empathetic, collaborative and positive mindset
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, technical and otherwise

Things that are not important to us

  • Whether or not you have a CS or engineering degree.
  • Whether or not you have GitHub contributions. (It's great if you do, but we don't expect it.)
  • Whether or not you have worked at a well-recognized company.

Other requirements:

  • Education: Due to contractual requirements, this role requires a Bachelor's Degree (in any discipline).
  • Residency: Lived in United States at least 3 years out of the last 5 years

We're a small team working to radically improve our government, so everyone that joins us has a direct impact on the direction and success of Nava. We are stewards – we hold a deep responsibility towards the systems that we work with. We are a community – we value collaboration both within our teams and with the many hardworking people within government. We offer generous benefits and equity.

We care deeply about diversity and inclusion at Nava. We are an equal opportunity employer and do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

Note: We participate in E-Verify. Upon hire, we will provide the federal government with your Form I-9 information to confirm that you are authorized to work in the U.S. This role is required to work from the contiguous United States.

Description

Who we are

The current system of credit, based on bureau data, is deeply unfair, penalising people who live in lower income areas, people who are new to the country or customers who have used high risk products in the past (such as payday loans). Koyo was founded in 2018, on the principle that everyone should have access to affordable credit regardless of where they are from, where they live, or types of credit that have used.

Many seeking credit are charged excessive fees and interest rates for borrowing that cause financial problems, rather than solve them. We’re changing all that.

Koyo uses innovative technology to offer fairly priced credit to millions of UK customers. We’re based in London, with global ambitions. Koyo is backed by leading venture capital funds (the same funds that backed the likes of Revolut, Transferwise and others) and some of the most reputable angel investors in the UK. Join us, and help put an end to predatory financial firms and be part of an exciting and rewarding journey.

Our story so far

In 2016, Thomas, the founder of Koyo moved to the UK and found accessing credit to be difficult if not impossible. This is because his credit history did not follow him from his home country. He realised that having an imperfect credit history affects millions of people who are new to the country, but also people who have failed to build a credit history in the UK more generally. In September 2018 we raised our first round of venture funding and have since raised further debt and equity funding from VCs and private investors. Our team consists of eight online lending professionals in tech, risk and marketing.

What you’ll be doing:

You will be working in a small fully distributed tech team, led by our experienced CTO, in developing the early versions of our lending product and our back office.

Our Tech Stack

The front end is a React/Redux webapp. The backend is primarily in Kotlin using Spring Boot and exposes a REST/JSON API. We use Google pub/sub for async messaging.

On the infrastructure side, we are using Docker orchestrated with Kubernetes on GCP. Terraform is used to define the infrastructure as code. Source code and CI/CD is with GitLab. Gitlab is also used to manage the backlog and our light-weight Kanban process.

Requirements

  • Entrepreneurial and excited about working at an early stage startup.

  • Confident in taking a lead role in front-end development - from the UX/UI, through to cutting the code and tests.

  • You are passionate about building products that are differentiated by the user experience. But you are also pragmatic – time to market is key.

  • You have a growth mindset: You’re excited to learn new things every day and have a passion to inspire and grow.

  • Technical excellence with in-depth experience of React and ES8 Javascript.

  • Beneficial but not essential: experience in the lending space (or fintech).

Benefits

  • This role can either be based in our central London office, 100% remote or a mix of the two.
  • Competitive salary.
  • Equity in the business - you will own a part of the company that you are helping to build.
  • Opportunity to shape the strategy and direction in a company with an important mission.
  • Working with bright ambitious people who take pride in what they do.
  • You’ll get to join one of the hottest new startups of 2019.
