Description

Hey Im Plum. The AI assistant for your money!

Since we launched in 2017, weve been on a mission to make everyone, starting with our awesome Plumsters, financially better off We do this by helping them automate their savings, avoid overpaying on bills, and providing a simple platform for them to invest and grow their money for the future.

The social aspect of what we do is really important to us. Were trying to change things for the better, by helping our users fight against a confusing financial system that is stacked against the most vulnerable in society (such as those on low income or the elderly).

Specifically, heres what were trying to tackle :

  • 11.5m people in the UK have less than £100 in savings
  • 90% of UK savings accounts pay less than inflation
  • £4bn lost to the loyalty penalty every year
  • 2 / 3 of UK adults say money stress has affected the health or wellbeing of someone they know.
  • In 3 years, we've grown from 2 co-founders sharing a rusty desk in Soho, to a brilliant, hard-working team of 75+, with offices in London (HQ) and Athens.

    Now, with more than 1M people already using Plum across the UK, Ireland, France and soon Spain, we could use a little help with our mission and that might be where you come in!

    Were now looking for a Junior Backend Engineer to join our Athens team.

    Engineering at Plum

    Our engineers come from a variety of backgrounds (physics, computer science, music, even history!) and we welcome all levels of experience.

    We value good engineering principles and healthy curiosity. We take a conservative approach to using external frameworks and we aspire to write simple, well-tested code, delivered in rapid iterations.

    We are in a managed Kubernetes cluster in Google Cloud. A python (3.7) monolithic application is deployed in the cluster using a thin flask API layer.

    Our python application is monolithic but we use a service-like code structure as well as a service-like infrastructure. Our database is Postgres and we use Redis for cashing and distributed locking.

    Our queueing infrastructure is RabbitMQ.

    You'll get to work on bank data ingestion, payments, investments, data pipelines, user-facing features which assist people in their financial operations.

    On top, you'll play an integral role in taking Plum's infrastructure to an exciting next level a suite of fault-tolerant, self-contained backend services.

    It's a really good chance to get your hands dirty with a product that is already used by 1m people in the UK.

    How we work

    We work in "squads" a more startup-appropriate name for saying small, cross-functional teams. Each squad has a mission and a set of OKRs to monitor and improve.

    We have 5 of these squads right now - Aggregation & Linking, Growth, Treasury, Lost Money and Wealth. As an engineer you'll work in a squad but you can also reach out to and work with anyone in the company.

    Our culture : openness and accountability

    Even though you'll have a primary role, you can get involved in any aspect of the business you're interested in and contribute feedback and product ideas freely.

    In return, we'll expect you to back your decisions with data and logic. Features are considered finished when the data tells us that they've moved the needle.

    What we look for

  • Youll have a Degree in Computer Science / Engineering, Information Technology or any other relevant field
  • You have 1 year of experience (or internship)
  • Youll have past experience shipping in Python
  • Youll have a good sense of design & architecture when it comes to your code
  • You want to build things first and foremost for the customer
  • Familiarity with frameworks and tools such as Postgres, Docker & Celery would be nice, but isnt a must by any means
  • You're a true team player and inherently positive. Where others see problems, you see opportunities for improvement.
  • Plum's Perks

  • Join one of the hottest fintech start-ups in Athens
  • We're all in this together! Own part of the company through stock options
  • Great office location in the heart of Athens (Syntagma square), with amazing view!
  • Parking slots.
  • Flexibility to work from our London office (almost) whenever you want
  • Private Health & Life Insurance
  • 22 days holiday a year, excluding public holidays (34 in total)
  • 1 paid leave for volunteering. We admire people who would like to contribute to their society.
  • Our annual team trip, to a secret destination ️
  • An office brimming with fruit & snacks, coffee, plants, and a vibe thats...
  • If you think this sounds like a bit of you then dont hesitate to get in touch!
