Unblocking Access to Business Finance

About us

Funding Xchange is turning the traditional lending process on its head – we have strong relationships with more than 80 lenders and hold their credit policies, enabling small businesses to find appropriate lenders in minutes rather than days or weeks. We put small businesses in control of what finance they get and how. Our lenders include the biggest names in alternative finance including Funding Circle, iwoca, Market Invoice and Capital on Tap as well as smaller niche players that offer attractive products to sub-segments of the market.

We have helped 100,000 small businesses understand their finance options by providing our technology to price comparison websites like MoneySuperMarket and Money.co.uk to fuel their business funding channels as well as other partners such as Experian, Sage and Monzo. We’ve integrated into some lenders, along with cloud accountancy packages and open banking platforms, to help us deliver finance to SMEs as quickly as 10 minutes.

Funding Xchange is designated by HM Treasury as a Finance Referral Platform working with nine UK banks to help their customers access finance solutions if they are not ready for bank finance, and we’re one of the first approved by the FCA for access to open banking data.

Half fin, half tech we’ve closed our series A and we’ve just got a £5m grant to expand what we do; we’re starting an exciting new chapter offering our services directly into banks, lenders, brokers and industry bodies to transform SME’s experiences.

Our values

We want to open with each other, challenging ourselves and past systems. We want to continually to improve ourselves and how we work together. We want to be proud of what each of us and all of us have achieved.

We want you to feel the same way.

The role

We are looking for DevOps engineers who understand server management, containerisation and cloud security to help us build a modern disruptive platform. You will join a diverse group of bright and passionate engineers, in a self-organizing and cross-functional team. You’ll be building and operating a bespoke cloud-based SaaS loan recommendation platform, deploying and maintaining consumable API’s.

Our (current) full stack is Java, JavaScript, React, and Athena, deployed on EKS and EC2 via Terraform with New Relic for monitoring and alerting, but you won’t be expected to know it all.

You should apply if you

Can write Terraform scripts to deploy to AWS
Understand IAM and implement user, server, and data segregation policies to fulfil the security needs of a regulated business
Can create, maintain, and deploy EKS and EC2 clusters, service meshes (Istio) and other network infrastructure
Have knowledge of logging, monitoring and alerting strategies, especially in CloudWatch or New Relic
Can write and review support run books
It’d be nice if you

Understand web security, and can be proactive in thinking about potential threats
Are familiar with Postgres or AWS Athena
Are familiar with Node.js and AWS lambdas
Have built out SSO systems
Have prior experience in a regulated environment, especially a fintech
Location

We are currently 100% remote, with the ability to work out of our Shoreditch office a few days a week should you wish.

We have offices in Shoreditch and central Cardiff. Our offices will be used with absolute sensitivity to each individual’s needs and personal circumstances – you will not be asked to meet in-person in the short or medium term. Ultimately, our team will be able to choose how regularly they use an office, from predominately home-based to predominately office-based. However, we value the connections that meeting in-person can strengthen; those that ultimately choose to be home-based will be expected to travel to either London or Cardiff once or twice a month to meet with their colleagues.

Why you’ll love us

Super-talented teammates
Immediate scope to make an impact and drive the business forward
Work closely with some of the biggest firms in fintech/alternative finance
Exposure to unique data assets and driving success through analytics
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate based on race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
