Frontend Engineer

London
OakNorth Analytical Intelligence – Product Development
Full time
With close to $4bn in loans flowing through its systems, OakNorth AI is the leading player in the bespoke mid-sized loans segment, and has partnered with lending institutions around the world to unlock this under-served market. 

OakNorth Analytical Intelligence (ON AI) is a FinTech platform unlocking the under-served and underestimated market for bespoke loans to SMEs. It does this by leveraging data, machine learning and technology to make a previously unprofitable market segment highly attractive. By deploying our platform globally, we are growing our footprint within the financial services industry and helping our clients reach previously untapped market segments.
 
The company was founded by Rishi Khosla and Joel Perlman, serial entrepreneurs, who proved the concept for OakNorth Analytical Intelligence via OakNorth - a bank they founded in 2015 to address the mid-market funding gap in the UK. The bank became profitable after just 11 months and within a period of less than two years, has grown its loan book to $1.7bn. The group is the fastest in European history to become a unicorn (30 months from inception) and counts GIC, Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund, among its investors. The management team has backgrounds from leading tech and financial institutions such as Palantir Technologies, Amazon, Apple, Intel and Goldman Sachs.

ONAI has a small core product team in London which has built out the first version of its product. We’re now ready to increase the size of our team, whilst staying true to focus on delivery and efficiency.

Our current stack consists of ReactJS + GraphQL paired with Python, Postgres and ElasticSearch. We deploy on AWS using Docker, and Terraform.

In this role you’ll be working directly with the Director of Product and the product team to build and deliver software to ONAI's customers. This is an extremely high impact role and a great opportunity to be instrumental in defining the product vision, as well as having ownership over large parts of the codebase.

We're looking for strong frontend engineers with a keen eye for detail who can help us iterate quickly whilst maintaining product stability and aesthetics. The ideal candidate would be comfortable using the latest javascript standards (ES6, ES7, ES8) as well as having a thorough understanding of the latest features of React. Prior experience using GraphQL and Apollo-Client is also a big plus, as is any experience in the technologies used in our back-end.

What we're looking for

    • Experience with React (ideally) or similar frontend frameworks (Vue, Angular)
    • Experience with JavaScript standards (ES6, ES7, ES8)
    • Experience with integration with GraphQL APIs
    • Experience with Python, Flask, Postgres, ElasticSearch, Docker, Terraform is a plus
    • Strong desire to build great frontends that our users love
    • Strong communications skills
    • Keen eye for detail in UI/UX
