Job description

Looking to do some work that matters?

We get it – it’s why most people come to Cleo. Together we’re fighting for the world’s financial health, building an AI that helps you make the best money decisions from day one. We’ve helped 4 million people so far with personalised insights and a voice you don’t expect in FinTech. But it’s time to do more.

As we enter the next phase, we’re looking for more improvisers, data geeks and grown ups who want to own their work and create meaningful change.

We’re looking for a brilliant backend Ruby engineer to join us on our mission to fight for the world's financial health. You’ll be joining a team of adaptable, creative and product-focused engineers who ship working software. We understand our customers, we understand their pain, and we are passionate about helping them. 

You'll be joining our Core (Financial Health) - Build a safety net squad where the team’s mission is to put our users on the road to financial fitness by building a safety net. This is not a short-term, one-shot approach. This is about building long term behavior change. We will act as our users’ money personal trainer, helping them to build a healthy savings habit.

Life as an Engineer at Cleo


  • We don’t deliberate exhaustively over all the what-ifs. We focus on being effective. We make small changes and test them quickly. 
  • We think the deliberate, conscious and careful accumulation of tech debt is a powerful tool that lets us ship code and value to our users faster. 
  • We write code to be read, debugged and maintained by humans. 
  • We help each other. We learn the best and quickest by reviewing each others’ code and giving each other useful, constructive feedback. 

What we’re looking for:


  • We’re looking for someone who wants to make a positive difference in society by improving the financial health of over 3 million users worldwide.
  • We are acutely aware of the position of many of our customers and our role in trying to help and serve them. This means you take the initiative. You are a passionate doer. You own our problems and are always learning.
  • You join us in our belief that we don’t know everything and empower our colleagues to make progress. Anyone at Cleo can have an idea and we’ll support them to test it.
  • We are trying to be the change we want to see in the world. You purposefully give energy to those around you and inspire confidence. You create an environment that’s inclusive and empowers others to do their best work. You respect your colleagues and our customers.

Why should I apply?


  • There’s a clear engineering career growth framework. Whether you want to develop your career as a sole contributor or head down the engineering management track, you can grow with us! 
  • You’ll be joining an open and collaborative team where you’ll be heard and get to make a difference
  • You’ll be joining a team of respected Rubyists in the London Ruby Community

Required:


  • You have used Ruby on Rails in a job for at least 2 years.
  • You are product and delivery focused
