Technology – Software Engineering
At Zopa, we’re shaping the future of finance.
We offer simple loans and smart investments that help people take control of their finances and do more with their money. In the 12 years we’ve been in business, we’ve helped more than 60,000 people lend over £3 billion to 246,000 UK consumers.
And our journey’s only just beginning. In November 2016 we announced our plans to build a next generation bank so that we can bring a greater range of smart, ethical finance products to even more people.
We work in cross-functional teams that work together to solve customer problems.
We’ve got a great office in London bridge with riverside views, ping pong, fuseball, PlayStation, a meditation room, break-out pods, gym discounts, morning fruit, and private health insurance.
