Building a financial institution for the digital age with a consumer and tech first mindset


About Lendable

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

Our first product is offering personal loans. Or technically speaking (if you prefer): we have built the world's fastest consumer lending platform, powered by real-time, automated credit decisions and continuous risk pricing. To give you an idea, 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 the industry norm of days or weeks). Our second product will launch this year and we’re planning on much more!

We are well-funded, profitable, and grew fourfold last year. In the five years since we started we have lent over £700 million to UK consumers. We are a focused team of c.55 individuals with founders previously at Goldman Sachs, Rocket Internet and BCG, with 2 featured in Forbes’ 30 under 30 list. We are backed by the GPs of Passion Capital who have also invested in Monzo and GoCardless, among others. We're one of the fastest growing tech companies in the UK: - Fast Track 100, number 6 - Deloitte Fast 50, number 7 - Hottest startups to work for in London, number 3

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

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
