Contract Description

Senior Ruby Engineer - Contractor - Outside of IR35
Who are we?
We want to help small businesses win. That's why we're here.

We connect small business owners to investors - to create jobs, support local communities and power economies - because we believe that people are made to do more. And we want to help realise their goals.

So, we created the leading small business loan platform. Investors have lent £9.8 billion in 130,000 loans to 90,000 small business owners. In a single year, this lending unlocked 115,000 jobs and contributed £6.5 billion to the global economy. There's never been a better time to join!

Be part of the team that changes everything. Let's build the place where small businesses can get the funding they need to win and leave a legacy behind, forever.

This role sits within the "Tech and Data" teams. The drivers behind our platform - brilliant people working together to create, code, and build the next game changers.

What will you be doing?
  • Writing (primarily) Ruby to support existing or build new features
  • Collaborating as part of an agile cross-functional team
  • Building great user experiences for customers
  • Automating processes that enable Funding Circle to operate at scale
  • Supporting our production systems
Are You?

This role requires someone who has:
  • Experience in Ruby development
  • Fundamental programming skills (data structures, algorithms)
  • Good communication skills, both written and spoken
  • Knowledge of Agile, Scrum, TDD and CI/CD
Experience with any of the following technologies would be beneficial:
  • RabbitMQ
  • Kafka
  • PostreSQL
  • Docker
  • Circle CI
  • Mesos/Marathon
  • AWS
  • Experience of working with Distributed Systems and Event-Driven Architectures

Why should you join us?

We're gearing up for our biggest chapter yet - and it's being driven by tech.

That means full steam ahead working on our global platform and real challenges for you to noodle and solve - as we build new things, reimagine the stack and go after the greenfield.

We believe that great ideas come from everywhere. So, there are no pigeonholes here. We keep it agile and open. Think big remits and huge ownership in a continuous learning environment. Close knit teams, with mentorships and global career opportunities. Everyone working together to make a genuine difference to small business owners.

Join the team making it happen. Help us define long-term commitments and launch the next game changers - let's build the incredible.

It's in our differences that we find our strengths.

At Funding Circle, we celebrate and support the differences that make you, you. We're proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and affirmative action employer. We truly believe that diversity makes us better. We particularly encourage applications from applicants from underrepresented backgrounds. We welcome applicants who may want to work flexibly.

Want to Build the Incredible? We'd love to hear from you.
