ClearScore

Description

ClearScore is searching for a talented Backend Developer to join our growing technology team. You will influence the direction of critical ClearScore services and build tools that allow us to scale rapidly.

Within a couple of days of joining, you will deploy your code to production affecting millions of users globally and write new features to attract new users and engage our user base. You will develop integrations with new partners worldwide so we are able to tackle underserved markets and offer better deals to customers.

You’ll work with:

  • A global microservices architecture written in Scala, using functional programming to really provide value to our users
  • Two technical stacks: one using Akka HTTP and one using the Typelevel Stack (Cats, Cats Effect, http4s, Circe)
  • A world-class SRE team who champion our “you build it you run it” principle, empowering our developers to work with AWS, Kubernetes and Spinnaker
  • A Quality Assistance program to build, test, release and monitor your own work
  • TDD and peer reviewing enabling you to do frequent yet resilient releases to global services

You will be joining:

  • A cross-functional squad, to collaborate closely with Frontend Developers, Mobile Developers, Test Engineers and Product Managers to build new features on one of our apps
  • A global community of over 40 Backend Developers from diverse backgrounds. We are a big fan of coding bootcamps and we see the great value that nontraditional routes into technical careers can bring to the team
  • A global team of over 160 developers in ClearScore’s Technology function
  • A learning culture, where everyone is supported in drawing up an annual Personal Development Plan.

We are always looking for ways to do things better and we encourage new joiners to bring their ideas and ways of working to the table. Teach us some cool stuff and we’ll teach you some, but most of all, you’ll have fun doing it.

For more information on our tech stack check out our Tech Radar 2022, how we work is summarised in our Engineering Principles and we have many other Tech Blogs on Medium.

Why ClearScore?

ClearScore is currently the biggest marketplace for credit products in the UK, South Africa and Australia with millions of users. We are the first company to facilitate access to credit products using Open Banking data, making credit accessible to users with no credit files or low credit scores. In the UK alone, we have established relationships with over 50 of the main lenders and have been a trusted tool for customers to manage their credit and make better financial decisions.

We were the first business to offer free credit reports. We did so because we are user-centric at our core and we believe in leveraging on technology to enable positive financial choices. We are design-led and data driven and we embed these behaviours in everything we do.

Our company culture is a fundamental part of all we have achieved. We believe in hiring smart, driven, passionate and diverse people who are keen on having a real impact in our organisation. We trust you to manage your own time so we offer flexible work and no fixed desk hours. We don’t micromanage and we believe in measuring outcomes rather than effort. We have an inclusive culture where all, regardless of seniority, are encouraged to contribute with their ideas, look after their wellbeing and actively seek opportunities for career growth.
