Senior Python Developer

London - Tech Permanent
Funding Options are looking for a talented Senior Developer to help re-imagine and reinvent how small businesses discover and access the right financial products for their needs. 

We started life in 2012 with a simple but powerful idea. What if instead of going to the bank, businesses could search for financial products online just like consumers do for car insurance or hotels? Since then we've helped our customers raise millions, won a host of industry awards, and gained the backing of the government. Funding Options is also one of the fastest-growing fintech companies on one metric that counts - revenue.
We’ve secured further investment from ING Ventures, and now, we’re about to embark on the next step of our exciting tech-led journey.


The Role - we are looking for a strong, senior developer to:
  • Take ownership of the code base
  • Help to define architectures
  • Provide technical guidance and mentorship to junior members of the team
  • Help to improve the product by assessing and selecting new technologies
  • Help to build the team
  • Contribute to the on-going growth of the engineering teams by sharing best practice and feedback
  • Work collaboratively with our product team to improve our offering to customers
  • A bit about you:
  • Strong knowledge of Python (including Django and/or Flask)
  • AWS
  • Terraform (or other deployment tools)
  • Provide input and influence discussions around best practices and new technologies
  • Keen to share your knowledge and open to giving and receiving feedback
  • Experience mentoring more junior team members
  • Our tech stack
  • Python
  • AWS environments including Lambda and Fargate
  • Terraform
  • CircleCI
  • React / Gatsby
  • Sentry 
  • Google BigQuery / Stitch / Metabase
  • The Good Stuff!
  • Flexible working (office or home based or a mix of both)
  • Your choice of hardware (Mac or Windows)
  • Career development opportunities
  • Employee assistance and wellbeing support plan 
  • 25 days for you to relax + 3 additional holiday days off over the 2020 Xmas and New Year period
  • 1 paid volunteering day per year
  • Access to all workspace facilities 
  • Free breakfast, fruit, filtered water and organic coffee!

  • We work in an agile fashion, small cross functional squads, with daily stand-ups and fortnightly retrospectives. You’ll bring new ideas, and become an integral part of the process of continuously improving our product.

    Even if you're not completely confident you fit our exact criteria, please get in touch!
