Full Stack Developer

Location: Edinburgh (currently remote)

Salary: Based on experience

At LendingCrowd, our goal is to enrich people’s lives and support them to achieve their ambitions.

We do this by matching investors to borrowers on our proprietary fintech platform. We fund the ambitions of small businesses, allowing them to grow and achieve their dreams. Lenders see strong returns, helping them do more with their money, whether it’s improving their own lives or those of friends and family around them. For our most important people, our employees, we can support them to grow as the company grows, developing and nurturing skills that will help them for years to come. A “do the right thing” attitude allows us to challenge conventional business practice and act with openness and transparency, in the best interests of clients, stakeholders and employees alike.

In the last five years we’ve helped 900 small businesses borrow over £78m, delivering strong returns to thousands of investors in the process – all driven by our award-winning tech platform. We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve built, but we’re only at the beginning. That’s where you come in!

Joining LendingCrowd will give you the opportunity to operate in the fast-growing, dynamic market of fintech lending and you will be helping to grow the business by developing new products in the latest technologies, enriching your career and experience.

This role is in a small but well-organised team that is continuing to build LendingCrowd’s leading fintech cloud applications, and we will be listening to your suggestions and collaborating to provide the best products and features along with a great user experience for our customers. You will be able to shape the way we design, build, test and deploy using cutting-edge technology and your solution-focused approach.

On a day-to-day basis, this will mean that you will:

  • launch new financial products for our customers
  • design, build and deploy APIs for our customers in our fintech ecosystem
  • build new capabilities within the business to improve operational efficiency
  • extend the functionality of our existing web and mobile applications to attract and retain customers

Required skills and experience

You will have at least two years’ professional software development experience, be at ease working with Linux, and have experience of the following:

  • Ruby on Rails
  • Full Software Development Life Cycle using Agile Methodologies
  • Relational Databases (e.g. MySQL, PostgreSQL)

Desired experience

It would be beneficial but not essential to have experience in:

  • MongoDB test-driven development
  • Automated test suites – RSpec, Cucumber etc.
  • HTML and CSS

For a more senior role in our team you will be experienced in mentoring others and will be highly experienced in cloud architecture.
