Imagine Mortgages: Tech Lead (Full-time, London)


About us

At Imagine, we’re building smarter solutions for the mortgage market with the goal to transform access to home finance for millions of disenfranchised people in the U.K. and beyond. We have a huge product vision and need amazing people to help us to bring it to life.

We have just raised a £6m equity round, the largest seed-stage raise for a FinTech business in Europe. We’re currently a team of 10 and expect there to be more than 20 of us by the end of the year.

So far we’ve been working closely with a development agency to build our customer MVP whilst developing our underwriting and servicing systems in-house. We’re now scaling our in-house engineering team and are looking for a team leader to oversee the development of our web and mobile apps.

This is an incredibly important role, working as the right-hand-person to our CTO and managing the customer-facing engineering team to create a powerful, intuitive and slick product for our borrowers.


What we can offer:

  • A highly competitive salary (£75-95k) and equity package


  • The opportunity to work from home once per week.


  • 33 days of holiday per year, including UK public holidays.


  • The chance to shape the technical function of a company that has a big vision and a bright future.


  • A role in shaping the ethos, culture and working habits of the organisation.


  • An exciting journey alongside a friendly and ambitious founding team.


You will be responsible for:


  • Recruiting and managing a team of developers. We aim to scale to a team of 10 developers by the end of this year, split between our customer-facing and underwriting/servicing teams.


  • Architecting a growing, changing system.


  • Taking ownership of the security, integrity and reliability of a system that processes and holds sensitive financial information.


  • Building products in a lean and iterative manner to accommodate evolving requirements.


We are looking for someone who has:


  • Experience building products and owning technical systems in a start-up environment.


  • Experience across a broad set of web technologies, including Ruby/Rails, React Native and AWS.


  • Experience managing the performance and development of high-performing engineers.


  • The ability to communicate clearly, effectively and with empathy, translating between technical, financial and product-related issues with ease.




  • We’ll have a brief introductory phone call to learn more about you and answer any initial questions that you may have.


  • After that, we may ask you to come in for a 2-hour interview at our offices near Highbury & Islington. You’ll meet with a number of the team and our CEO and CTO will lead the interview.
