Job description

Lead Engineer / Head of Engineering – Fintech startup – Up to £105,000 + high equity!

The Role

I’m working closely with a Fintech startup whose mission is to help companies strengthen & support their employees financial security. You’ll be leading a team of four engineers that will be at least eight before the year is out!

The platform was launched to MVP a few months back & it has gone down incredibly well with its users so far. However, there are obviously a lot of improvements to be made. This is where you come in. You’ll be leading the team of engineers to ensure the work being done is to the highest possible quality whilst also being responsible for the technical decision making in the business. This role is eventually going to transition into a CTO – so we need someone with real drive & career ambition!

In the next year, they want to have four core parts to their platform & you will be an integral part in building all of them. They are a ML tool, audio transcription, data analytics & AI focused user journeys.

The product is built in a full JavaScript stack (see tech stack below for full details) but for this role, the tech stack is not as important. You will be asked to dive in when required but the majority of your time will be spent leading, so knowledge of JavaScript is key, but you don’t need to be a ‘React rockstar’ or anything cliché like that…


The business have been in operation for a year now & have done incredibly well on their journey so far. They’re backed by some huge names in the finance industry & have done their own funding too – so they’re here to stay!

Their product is a SaaS platform which is used by companies who then give access to their staff. The platform is designed to provide high end financial advice without needing to pay someone to do it. This is just one side of the product & there are lots more in the pipeline for the next year.

The company are operating on a heavily remote basis & are happy to continue doing this moving forwards. For this role in particular, they would ideally like you to be based around London so that you can travel in for investor meetings etc, but they are considering applications from further afield too.



  • Experience leading small development teams
  • Comfortable taking lead on projects & overseeing full product lifecycle
  • Strong background in JavaScript development


  • Node.js
  • React
  • TypeScript
  • GraphQL
  • GCP
  • STEM degree or equivalent


As well of a salary of up to £105,000, this company offers incredible equity, remote working & more!
