Web Engineer (React)

full-time Plum Fintech London

At Plum, were on a mission to help people lead a healthier financial life. Were building a quirky Messenger chatbot that links to your bank, understands your spending habits and helps you save more, invest in things that matter and avoid overspending on your bills. We like to think of Plum as your moneys best friend 👫

Build a delightful customer experience

Plum has a split personality – its primarily a chatbot which turns into a mobile-first web app (through Messenger webviews) for richer interactions like onboarding, graphs, activity feeds, document viewing etc. It plays a critical part in the overall Plum experience. We use ES7, React, Redux and were currently in ❤️ with Redux Sagas. Were also looking into React Native for building iOS and Android apps so this is a great opportunity to get your hands dirty and build infrastructure and code that spans web and native!

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 KPIs to monitor and improve. We have 3 of these squads right now – Savings, Investments and Black Ops. As an engineer youll 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 youll have a primary role, you can get involved in any aspect of the business youre interested in and contribute feedback and product ideas freely. In return, well expect you to back your decisions with data and logic. Features are considered finished when the data tells us that theyve moved the needle.

What we look for

Were looking for passion to delight, a good sense of design and an affection towards the customer. Well need you to hit the ground running so past experience in shipping React applications used by lots of users is essential. Youre a true team player and inherently positive. Where others see problems, you see solutions.

What we offer

  • Bucketfuls of challenging problems to solve, so hopefully thats your thing! Our job is to take a complicated, archaic domain and make it simple and accessible to everyone.
  • One of the best learning experiences of your life. Youll get to work with extremely smart and capable people, with backgrounds in finance, physics, history, computing, languages and more.
  • Company stock options – were all in this together.
  • 25 days holiday a year, excluding bank holidays (33 in total).
  • Work from our London or Athens office whenever you want
