Want to work with one of the UK's most exciting Fintech startups? Are you passionate about disruptive start-ups in particular Fintech and possibilities for PSD2 and plugin banking?

Ok, tell me more...🤔

At Chip, we save you money by moving small amounts from your bank account into a savings account. That’s it. Simple, but not sexy. We’ll also look after your overdraft, and saving you from those dreaded bank charges. That’s simple too, but still not sexy. Thankfully, it’s really effective, and a huge number of our users have also become our investors.

What’s simple for the user though, is incredibly complex behind the scenes. Which is why we’re doubling our engineering team. With that comes some new processes, as we strive to improve our workflow and communication across the organisation. It genuinely is a great time to join a Fintech company at the forefront of the Open Banking revolution.

Chip is now building a peer to peer lending product that enables users to lend their Chip savings to other Chip users with a range of smart credit features that pay back automatically using the Savings AI. 🤯

Here’s where you come in: ✍️

We have one core product, that we’re porting from a monolith to a modern microservices architecture, while improving our codebase. It’s the usual fixing the plane, while flying the plane.

Our current processes are basic, and without a servant leader to guide the Engineering team in the best way forward. We have a few silo’s, in both cultural and knowledge, and while cross-functional, our team is not yet working optimally as a team.

We want you to come in and make it your own. Share your experience to improve our workflow, communication, reporting, impediment removal and decision making . While not exactly a blank slate, we're not tightly coupled to any of our technology or methodology choices.

The team, and wider organisation, needs guidance on the value of Agile (noun) and being agile (verb); as well as the trade-offs required. You'll have the opportunity to really stretch yourself, and maybe show off a little. This type of scope doesn't come along very often in the fintech world.

What we’re really looking for: ✍️

Although we’re in the financial space, and under the scrutiny that comes with it, the current engineering team works well together, and even sometimes with a smile. We’re sure you’ve got the skills and experience, otherwise you would have stopped reading by now, so let us be clear in what will make us want to work with you.

We want a real person, with interests outside of code, to join our work family. You could be a dancer, a gamer, a musician, a parent, a hockey fan, or even that one person that still writes Twilight fan-fiction. Doesn’t matter to us. At the interview stages will be looking for empathy, EQ, fun stories, have the ability to smile even when things are tough, and are strong communicators. Captain Kirk style manager’s need not apply.

We take our work and customers financial health very seriously, but not ourselves.
