Lending Works has recently completed a private equity transaction and has a new principal shareholder that will fund and support our entire business plan.
We are continuing to scale at pace and are looking for senior backend-specialist engineers with a broad skillset to join us on our journey. Our industry-leading, high-automation, fintech platform enables ourselves and our partners to offer personal loans all the way from customers searching for a loan, through to completing the low-friction application, accepting the loan agreement, and post-payment self-service loan management. Including loan pricing and automated loan decision making algorithms.
Our target architecture for new development is a cloud-native, functional, microservice architecture based around Kotlin and http4k on the backend and React/Typescript on the frontend. Our teams are autonomous, cross-functional, full-stack, full-cycle, end to end delivery squads of 5-10 software engineers alongside product management, design, and analytics. Our focus on teamwork and quality, with a product-minded and test-driven approach, enables us to go far together. We measure ourselves on value delivered and operational excellence, not the number of features implemented.
