Join our Tech Team!

The LendInvest team will be attending Silicon Milkroundabout- the London tech jobs fair- from 14th-15th November. We’re looking to hire talented people to join our tech team! 

We are hiring!

Without the tech team, LendInvest would not be the leading FinTech company it is today.  In a nutshell, we’re removing the middleman by enabling technology to help create a direct borrower to lender experience, so it’s important for us to hire the very best tech people to help us achieve our long term vision to disrupt the financial services industry.

This month, from the 14th-15th November, we’ll be attending Silicon Milkroundabout, the London tech jobs fair, looking to recruit talented developers, designers, data scientists and product experts. If you take a look at the LendInvest careers page you’ll see we have a number of positions to fill, including a Business Analyst, Digital Product Owner, Mid level PHP (Symfony2) Developer, QA Engineer, Salesforce Developer, Senior Front-End Developer, Senior PHP (Symfony2) Developer and VP of Engineering. If you believe you have what it takes, you can apply for any of these roles online, or come say hello to us at Silicon Milkroundabout to learn more about what we do.

Still not sure if we’re a right fit for you? Here are some more reasons why you should want to work at LendInvest:

Why Work at LendInvest?

Fun and friendly company culture

It’s almost cliche when people talk about ‘company culture’, but it’s something we take quite seriously at LendInvest. We’ve put a lot of thought and effort into trying to create a unique company culture and do things in a different way. The tech industry in general has been quite pioneering in trying to find new ways for people to work, so coming to work doesn’t have to be a chore, but something that is fun and enjoyable.

Our team is made up of people from all over the world; we have people from Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, South Africa, Holland, and many more. Having such a mix of cultures creates a really interesting dynamic within the office.

Autonomy

At LendInvest you have a high level of autonomy over your own work. Or team members tend to have initiative, a hard working attitude and a good work ethic, but we all support each other at the same time, which creates an environment where you can really get things done. Since we’re a fast-growing company, there are plenty of opportunities to challenge yourself.

Flat Hierarchy

We have a very open, collaborative office environment at LendInvest, so you have plenty of opportunities to have your ideas heard. If you have a question, you can speak to anyone in the office and get the answers you need to get the job done. It’s a fast-paced environment, and one where there are fewer barriers to getting things done compared to other financial companies.

4pm Friday Happy Hour and social activities!

On Fridays we have a staff lunch delivered to the office, which can be anything from burritos or pizza to an Asian buffet. While we enjoy our lunch we have an informative ‘Brown Bag’ talk, where someone from the team will give a short presentation on a project they are working on, or a topic that is relevant to their area of expertise. At 4pm on the dot our Happy Hour begins, so we’ll usually have a few drinks and break out the nerf guns, before heading off to our local pub.

In celebration of payday we’ve also started ‘Payday Dinners’, where we try out a nearby restaurant once a month. And it doesn’t stop there; we’re always arranging to do things together, whether it’s a team visit to Oktoberfest, a ping pong tournament or a game of football. To make communication easier we set up ‘LendInvest Backyard’ – a closed social network page where we can post anything of interest, from social events to company news and communication.

Perks

LendInvest recently signed up to Perkbox, which offers a huge number of discounts for employees, including discounted cinema tickets, discounted gym membership and free phone insurance. Plus there are more snacks than you could ever eat in our kitchen, so you’ll never go hungry!
