Who we are:
Crowdcube is the world's leading equity crowdfunding platform. We enable everyday investors to invest alongside Europe’s venture capitalists and professional investors in start-up, early stage and growth businesses; in doing so we're enabling entrepreneurs to raise funds for their businesses.
We have experienced year on year growth since 2011 with over 500,000 registered investors, and over 600 British businesses successfully funded on the platform, including Brewdog, Monzo, Eden Project and many more.
What you will be doing:
To help us continue to scale and grow our business, we need to enable our team to deliver quickly and safely on our ambitious plans. You will be part of a team who sets out what we build and how.

You will be joining an agile team based across three sites that ships regularly. Our engineers work in small product focused teams where collaboration is key. You will add real value to our talented team if you demonstrate leadership qualities and are keen to share your knowledge, successes and failures.
