This is your chance to come and shape the future of small business banking and accounting!
Make a difference
It's an exciting time in the accounting and banking space. We're seeing a revolution in the FinTech industry, and new government initiatives such as Making Tax Digital and Open Banking are opening up new features and products for customers.
The technology in this space is changing rapidly and at FreeAgent we're working on the cutting edge. We're focused on providing the best possible user experience for our growing customer base.
Creating the best place to work
We have built a powerful CI/CD platform which can run 40,000 automated tests in less than five minutes which allows us to remain productive at scale, and allows all engineers, regardless of level, to deploy code to production multiple times a day.
We value a diverse team, and we believe the variety of experiences and backgrounds in our team make us stronger. We believe in a learning culture and encourage self-development. We have regular 'wiggle weeks' and twice a year we hold our legendary 'Hack Days'. Engineers write about what they do, and what they learn, on our popular engineering blog.
We're normally found in our amazing office in central Edinburgh (one of the great cities of the world), and our work environment is light and bright with inspiring spaces and quiet places. If you're based in the office you'll enjoy catered lunches every Friday, weekly yoga and many other perks and treats. Find out more about life at HQ here!
Currently the whole team is working remotely although we’re well set up to accommodate this as around 40% of our engineering team normally work from home on a permanent basis. We’re continuing our hiring and onboarding, as well as finding alternative ways to stay connected and enjoy activities together from our virtual art club to exercise challenges and cake decorating competitions. See how we’ve been getting on!
