Who we are

BETR Lend are a tech-company providing online loans and credit cards to people with a thin credit file. There are over six million of these invisible customers in the UK alone.

People with a thin credit file are either excluded from credit entirely or are treated as sub-prime and charged payday interest rates. We think that is deeply unfair.

We are set to disrupt this multi-billion market by offering fairly priced credit through the innovative use of new data sources. We’re based in London with global ambitions.

We’ve recently completed our first round of funding by two top venture capital funds (who also funded Transferwise and Revolut) and some of the most reputable angel investors in the UK.

Join us and help put an end to predatory financial products and be part of an exciting and rewarding journey.

What you’ll be doing

You will work alongside the highly experienced CTO in developing the first versions of our lending product. This is a green-field development. You will be making all the choices with respect to the development of the front end, rolling up your sleeves and making it happen.

We have further fund raising planned and when this closes you will assist the CTO in building out the tech team.

Our Tech Stack

The front end will be an SPA (in a framework of your choice). The backend will be Java (Spring Boot) exposing a REST/JSON API. We will use Docker orchestrated with Kubernetes on GCP and Terraform to define the infrastructure as code. Source code and CI/CD is with GitLab.

Downstream, we will build up NLP and machine learning to automate the credit decisioning process.

  • You have a growth mindset: You’re excited to learn new things every day and have a passion to inspire and grow.
