What you’ll be doing

Joining a cross-functional product squad with a mix of frontend engineers, backend engineers, data analysts, designers, UX writers, and others to develop features that enhance our users' financial health.

Supported by your squad, you'll have the opportunity to choose between two exciting paths: the Ruby on Rails route or the React Native route.

If you choose the Ruby on Rails route:

  • You'll be working on our monolithic application, building out data models, background workers, JSON APIs, and business logic services to support product features. 
  • You'll write automated tests, use AB-Tests, feature flags, and other tools to iterate quickly and contribute to our data-driven development approach.

If you prefer the React Native route:

  • You'll be crafting amazing user experiences on our mobile application. 
  • You'll write automated tests, use AB-Tests, feature flags, and dive into user journeys to optimise the Cleo experience. 
  • You'll also be part of the release process for our weekly updates to the Apple and Google app stores.

In both paths, you'll be contributing to significant product feature work, such as building a secured credit card, launching budget rewind features, and enhancing subscription plans for various user types.

About you

  • Firstly and most importantly, the prospect of positively impacting society by improving the financial health of our users worldwide excites you.
  • You've familiarised yourself with our company values and engineering principles, and you're eager to embrace these opinions to deliver value through your work.
  • As a recent graduate with a Computer Science related degree, you have a foundation in software engineering. Regardless of your academic focus, you ideally have some experience with either Ruby on Rails or React/React Native, gained through coursework, side-projects, or commercial experience since graduating.

Join us in shaping the future of financial health technology, where you'll have the chance to make a meaningful impact while choosing a development path that aligns with your interests and skills.

What do you get for all your hard work?

  • A competitive compensation package (base + equity). You can view our public progression framework and salary bandings here:
  • Work at one of the fastest-growing tech startups, backed by top VC firms, Sofina, Balderton & EQT Ventures
  • A clear progression plan. We want you to keep growing. That means trying new things, leading others, challenging the status quo and owning your impact. Always with our complete support.
  • Flexibility: We can’t fight for the world’s financial health if we’re not healthy ourselves. We work with everyone to make sure they have the balance they need to do their best work.
  • Hybrid-first: Join our hybrid-first team, where we blend the best of both remote and in-office work. We expect our team members to be in our London office 1-2 times a week. On Thursdays, we buy you lunch but you can come to the office on whichever days work best for you!

UK App access: The Cleo app is no longer downloadable in the UK. If you’re an existing user, you’ll still have access to the app. But some features won’t be available. Why? 99% of our users are based in the US – where financial health is often overlooked. We’ve decided to shift our focus to where we can provide the most value and make the greatest impact for users who need it most. Then we’ll be able to apply what we learn to better support our UK users in the future.
