  • You are a Ruby developer with at least 3 years’ experience in a backend role.

  • You are excited by what we're building at Cleo; you are product-focused and care about making our users’ lives better.

Advantageous, but not essential;

  • Experience with React.
  • Experience scaling platforms growing at pace (Postgres / Rails).

Our process:

  1. Quick phone call with a member of our engineering team to find out more about your experience and why you want to work at Cleo.
  2. Short take-home test.

    2. Pairing on an interesting problem.
    3. Meet the CEO and COO.

Cleo is a great place to work:

  • An above market compensation package (Base + Equity). We're prepared to pay for the very best.
  • Work at one of the fastest growing tech startups anywhere in the world. We recently closed a competitive Series A with Balderton who join a formidable investor base including the founders of Skype, Transferwise, Zoopla, Lovefilm, Climate corporation, SongKick and others.
  • The team is exceptional. You'll get to work with brilliantly bright and dedicated individuals every day.
  • Our mission is unique. We want to radically improve everyone’s relationship with money. We're not maximising the time consumers spend in a feed, getting fast food delivered, or building an incrementally better bank. We're changing an industry in a visceral way, which you get to see every day in our customer feedback.
