Job Description

Fluidly is a seed stage fintech startup that’s still in private beta, launching later in 2017. We’re building a new category of intelligent business finance – fundamentally rethinking the way that SMEs plan and manage cashflow using technology. We’ll tell you much more in person… we’re still a little under-wraps though were recently featured in the Sunday Times on the future of Open Banking.

Fluidly is backed by some of the UK’s leading technology investors and we have a top-tier team drawn across engineering, data science and machine learning from leading firms and universities. Our Founder/ CEO is a serial entrepreneur, recently awarded an OBE for services to Business: https://www.linkedin.com/in/carolineplumb/
About the role
You will be reporting to the CTO and will be a senior member of the engineering team. Your job is initially to help us move from our private beta into full market launch later this year. After that it’s scaling out the product for production. It’s a very small team and we all need to help each other out so there will be some exposure to the full stack. This helps us all communicate better.

You are comfortable working across the stack, implementing UI features as well as extending back end APIs.

Technology wise, the solution is a full stack javascript (react + node) monolithic application. We aim to add other tech such as golang, clojure and microservices to the stack, but for now productivity is our main priority so we are keeping things simple.

Take the lists below as a guide – you don’t need to have everything.

*Interview process*

Skype call
A short conversation of 15-30 minutes with our CEO Caroline to find out a little bit more about you and tell you all about the company and what we are trying to achieve.

Take home technical exercise
Everyone hates technical exercies so we want this to be as painless as possible. We have a standard exercise that will take 1-2 hours depending on experience – you can do this at home on your own equipment without a stranger standing over you.

On site interview
You will bring in your technical exercise and we’ll talk through your solution and your experience more generally. After that we will do a pair programming exercise that’ll take about an hour. This will be as relevant to the real work you’d be doing as possible, ideally fixing a real bug or perhaps a simple implementation of a real feature. It’s as much for you to find out if you like our tech stack and way of working as anything else. You will not being doing any silly puzzles or high pressure whiteboarding exercies (although one will be available if you find them helpful for explaining things).

Meet the Team
Depending on our / your schedules this might be a on different day to the technical interview. Come and meet the rest of the team and ask us anything.

*Compensation*

The most competitive salary we can afford. We are an early stage startup and have to make our seed funding last. This means we can’t afford to compete directly on salary. As we grow, we will close this gap quickly. Dependent on experience (DOE).

Meaningful equity. We want people to have a serious stake in the business so that all of our interests are aligned. It’s your baby too (DOE).

25 days holiday – and we will make you take it. Sure, there will be some long days, but burnout is not big or clever.

Limitless challenge and scope for development. You are joining us at a very exciting time and have the opportunity to take this role in your preferred direction as we grow.

As much of our time as you need. You professional growth is important to us, and we want to help you to be awesome. It’s not just technical, Caroline will be helping build your commercial and business skills too, if that’s something you are interested in.

Sensible problem that will add real value to real people. This isn’t a HBO parody company.

Flexible working where possible. We like being in the office because it should be fun. All the same if you need to leave early on ${DAY} to make the school run, that’s no problem.

The best kit money can buy. Even that absurdly priced escape-key-less macbook. If you want it.

All the crisps you can eat.
