Lead Backend Engineer

London, United Kingdom

As the Backend Lead you will be responsible for the engineering team that builds and maintains the cutting edge technology behind our core platforms.

From crafting new products for our customers to introducing new 3rd party services to enable efficiencies or expansion, our engineers enable the company to achieve our goal of making investing in and borrowing for property easier than it’s ever been before.

People have long looked to the property market for good returns secured against bricks and mortar. This is at the heart of what we do. We give property entrepreneurs fast access to tailored property finance to buy, build and renovate. And we give investors access to the strong asset-backed returns property loans can offer.

What matters to us most is understanding and solving our customers' needs. So you can expect a fast pace and varied challenges tackled in a collaborative atmosphere. Our team thrives in a friendly, relaxed and open culture, which allows people to share ideas across the business. We all pitch in to find solutions, working together and creating environment that makes our employees happy coming to work

Some of our challenges include:

  • Maintaining high performance whilst implementing a highly scalable microservice architecture.
  • Building an application that will grow with LendInvest as we enter new and highly regulated markets both in the UK and further afield.
  • Making sure that we continually evolve within the fast moving property finance sector
  • Testing integrations between a number of different services
  • Disrupting the challenges involved in financing, buying and developing property and making the process as straightforward as possible
  • Your days will include:

  • Strong Leadership Qualities - You will be a strong leader with plenty of experience of getting the most out of engineering teams, encouraging senior members to meet their potential whilst mentoring more junior members of the team to develop their skills.
  • Product sense - We work in crews and need people who consider more than just the piece of the process they are responsible for. We use Domain Driven Design (DDD) to understand our stakeholders and business to produce better outcomes within our crews. Bonus points for an active interest in Fintech and the property market
  • What you’ll get in return:

  • Always be learning - We won’t ever expect you to do the same thing over and over. We want to give you new opportunities to become the best engineer you can be
