We are a fast-growing financial technology team on a mission to help people lead a healthier financial life. 50% of people in the UK have less than £100 in savings, and we think technology can enable anyone to build up wealth.
We are building complex financial systems, and beautiful customer experiences. We have a lot of upcoming cool things to make, from NLP, to ML for transaction categorisation, to migrating our platform to Docker on Kubernetes. It's a really good chance to get your hands dirty with a product that is already used by 150,000 people in the UK.
Technical knowledge is critical but we are a startup treading in uncharted territory so attitude is even more important. We're looking for people that like uncertainty and want to figure out how to do things that haven’t been done before. You're a true team player and inherently positive. Where others see problems, you see solutions.
Here's a few more words on our stack and a sample of upcoming work (feel free to try the puzzle!):
Plum is your personal savings assistant — it monitors your daily spending and automagically sets money aside that you won't need. Because saying “#yolo” is a bit too tempting sometimes.
1. Plum will analyse your account so it can learn about your income, expenses and spending patterns. Your data is safe with us – we employ bank-grade security and work with all UK financial institutions.
2. Plum monitors your current account and every few days transfers some money from it to your Plum savings. You can access that money instantly at any time, so you don't have to worry about unexpected expenses.
3. Plum notifies you about your balance, gives you super-fast access to your savings and offers tips on how to save more. All over Messenger, so no more apps to download.
