Senior Software Engineer - Mobile

Freetrade

Fulltime

London

$45,000 - $95,000 annually

At Freetrade, we believe investing should be open to everyone. It’s one of the best ways to grow your savings, but for a lot of people, investing seems complicated, expensive and out of reach. We want to change all that, which is why we're on a mission to get everyone investing!

We’re a technology company that brings simple, low-cost investing to everyone. We’ve built a beautiful investing app to trade in real shares, with no commissions and low flat fees, in a fluid, mobile-first experience. We’re not building an app for day-trading. We will never offer things like leveraged derivatives which are proven to lose the majority of customers their money. We’re building an app that can offer the means to achieve better, long-term financial outcomes and maybe even help chip away at one of the biggest issues of this generation; financial inequality.

As the first challenger stockbroker to disrupt the £1.2 trillion UK retail investment market, we’re poised to expand into Europe in 2021, with a Headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden. We have recently completed our £35m Series B funding round, led by Left Lane Capital with L Catterton, and existing investor Draper Esprit. Complimented by our 2020 crowdfunding round, this brings our total funding to £74m so far and we’re just getting started. We have also successfully launched various new revenue streams over the past few months, including our premium ‘Plus’ membership and self-invested personal pensions. 

We are on track to double in size from 120 people to 200+ by the end of the year. Our customer numbers are 600,000 and counting, and we are receiving upwards of 4,000 new customer sign ups per day as of January 2021. 

Our technology teams, across software engineering and product, are the beating heart of our mission. The teams work in collaborative verticals to build our platform. This means customers can put their savings to work in the global markets via a product and user experience they can trust, which currently enables 50,000 - 100,000 trades per day.

Our team is growing fast, and now we're looking for a mobile oriented Senior Software Engineer to join us. 
 
You will: 

  • Own the design and development of multiple features using your strong understanding of computer science fundamentals (data structures, algorithms, object-oriented programming, functional design, and so on). 
  • Develop an understanding of our stack. 
  • Write well-tested software.
  • Support operational excellence.
 
About you:
 
  • We hire in a language-agnostic way, so whatever your skill set we're happy to hear from you - you can check out our current stack here.
  • You’re team-oriented, keen to share your knowledge and open to giving (and receiving) continuous feedback. 
  • You write clean, performant, tested and maintainable code in at least one native mobile language (Swift/Kotlin).
  • You’re product-minded and understand the trade-offs between quality and delivering fast. 
  • You’re a strong communicator and thrive working cross-functionally with disciplines from operations to design and growth to finance. 
  • You love to learn new skills and want to develop your existing ones to maximise your potential. 
  • You care about impact, love a challenge, and take ownership of your work.  
 
About our environment:
We use serverless technologies such as Firestore, Cloud Composer, and Stackdriver, to build a reliable and performant platform. We use the real-time database, cloud functions and other features like pub/sub to provide a frictionless investment platform. We use Swift and Kotlin to write performant and reliable native applications leading to a frictionless investment experience

This is a high visibility environment where you will make a direct positive impact on customer experience and the business. If you enjoy broadening your technical skills, building a new product, and working in an environment that thrives on creativity, experimentation, and innovation, then this is the job for you!
 
 
What we can offer you: 
Salary is around £40,000 - £90,000 plus stock options and lots of other benefits.

We are an Equal Opportunity employer committed to a diverse and representative team. Whatever your race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability - we want to hear from you. We're very open about what we're working on, and the best places to learn more are our buzzing community forum and our blog.
