About Lendable

Finance is one of the last great stale service industries, and customers are suffering for it. Lendable is building a modern financial institution from scratch using technology, data science and attitude!

Our first product is offering personal loans. We have built the world's fastest consumer lending platform, powered by real-time, automated credit decisions and continuous risk pricing. How fast? Our relentless drive to automate and improve processes allows customers to apply for and receive their loan in well under 10 minutes on average (instead of days or weeks). Our second product will launch this year and we’re planning on much more!

We are well-funded, profitable, and one of the fastest growing businesses in the UK as recognised by Tech Track 100 and the Fast 50. We are a focused team of 60 individuals with founders previously at Goldman Sachs, Rocket Internet and BCG, with 2 featured in Forbes’ 30 under 30 list. We are backed by several leading investors who have also been involved in Monzo and GoCardless.

We have a unique, enthusiastic culture: we give talented and curious individuals the opportunity to stretch themselves and work in an environment that encourages personal development.

Hiring Process

Our hiring process is fast and flexible, in line with our company philosophy. It therefore doesn't follow a fixed structure, but in general the recruitment process follows the following structure:

  • Phone interview, followed by remote technical test
  • On-site interview to discuss test
  • Get going!

Life as an Engineer at Lendable

  • Full lifecycle; get involved right from planning through to deployment and beyond
  • Continuous deployment; we deploy to product several times a day. How? We have daily PR's and run CircleCI and Jenkins to ensure smooth deployment cycles
  • Automated testing; we're so confident we even deploy on Friday's! We use Behat, PHPunit, Selenium and Detox for this
  • Freedom; everyone has the flexibility (and freedom!) to get hands on with different areas of Lendable... so if you're a backend engineer, you can work on some frontend or devops too
  • Flexibility; we run daily standups at 1100 with a dial in to cater for anyone needing to start later / finish early and those working from home (when needed)
  • Showcase your work; fortnightly brown bag sessions to show everyone what you're working on, demo or do a talk on some new tech
  • Contribute; we have internal discussions to ensure we're all on the same page and everyone's voice is heard
  • Learning; there's a budget and paid days for conferences, events, learning that you want to get involved in
  • Modern tech stack; PHP 7.3, Symfony 4.4, React, React Native, Typescript, AWS, Kubernetes, Docker, Jenkins, Terraform, Helm, Python and more
