Senior Software Engineer - Back End


Company Type

LendUp builds technology, credit products, and educational experiences for the 56% of the U.S. population who are currently shut out of mainstream banking because of poor credit or volatile income. That’s a lot of hardworking, deserving people.

Our mission is to provide anyone with a path to better financial health. Being a socially responsible lender is a big job, but we’re more than up for the challenge. Now in our fifth year, we’re growing each and every day as we continue to bring our mission to life.  Join our exciting team and help us turn our mission into a movement.

About the role:

As a Senior Software Engineer at LendUp, you'll be building the software that makes LendUp go; software that analyzes credit worthiness, moves monies around, and helps people get educated and build credit.

You will:

  • Build software products that impact the lives of millions of consumers
  • Work across our web stack and get the opportunity to work on our Web, Platform, Data and Machine Learning teams
  • Work cross-functionally with our Product and Customer Insights teams to understand the customer and how to build the most appropriate features
  • Apply technology to a market that had seen little to no technological disruption before LendUp

You have:

  • Experience with distributed systems
  • Experience with modern web technologies like Python, Java, and Clojure
  • Familiar with cloud infrastructure such as Heroku and AWS
  • A passion for making impact and building consumer products that make a difference to the lives of customers


What we love about LendUp:

  • Our dog-friendly SF office
  • We’re committed to a diverse and inclusive culture that spurs innovation and creates a meaningful and impactful work environment
  • We have fun together at our weekly happy hours, quarterly team building events, company-sponsored volunteerism, hackathons, and sports teams
  • One of our values is “different backgrounds, same mission.” We are passionate participants in our employee resource groups (LeanIn, LGBTQ & Allies, and Black Ladders...) and have slack channels dedicated to everything from philosophy to sports to hip hop
