(₤45000 - ₤70000 per year)

Why iwoca?

A flexible cash flow is critical to the success of any small or mid-sized business. Traditionally, banks have neglected the millions of European SMEs because their processes have been too slow, rigid and costly to serve them effectively. By using cutting-edge technology and harnessing more data, iwoca is rapidly reinventing business finance, developing new ways to provide fast and flexible access to credit, enabling our customers to flourish.

Chris and James launched iwoca in 2012; since then we’ve made tens of thousands of credit decisions and lent over £150m to ten thousand SMEs across UK, Poland, Germany and Spain. Along the way we built a high-tech platform from scratch, won numerous awards and grown a highly cosmopolitan, fun and vibrant team of 130 people based in London. We represent a diverse range of backgrounds and we’re united in our mission to make business finance simple, seamless, and powerful.

We’ve come a long way in the last five years, and yet are just at the start of a journey that promises many more exciting times ahead. We recently closed a £46m funding round, giving us the firepower to accelerate our development. To drive this growth we’re looking for people who are smart, motivated and humble, want to develop themselves and push the boundaries of their own performance while building a business we can all be really proud of.

About the role:
At iwoca we are dedicated to building the smartest lending platform in the world as we believe that finance should be as simple, seamless and powerful as electricity. We like to work to an Agile-ish processes, which means features or projects go live in days or weeks rather than months or years.

We use AngularJS for our internal application & React+Redux for our public facing projects, with focus on adhering to ES6 standards.

  • Experience with CSS3 (including post/pre-processors) and HTML5
  • Experience with version control systems, ideally Git
  • A member of the JavaScript community and/or experience using D3.js that would be a real bonus!

You will always have a say in the business and have the opportunity to really make a difference.
