Liberis is transforming business finance. We use the latest technology to make it simple and flexible for small businesses to secure funding. Since our inception we have helped more than 15,000 small businesses access over £390 million in funding. We believe that small businesses are the economic lifeblood of local communities, yet they continue to be underserved by traditional banks and financial services organisations. We are committed to supporting them by:

  • Offering simple, fair finance to small businesses to help them thrive
  • Providing easy access to flexible funding through our innovative technology platform
  • Empowering our partners with finance solutions to increase the lifetime value of their small business customers.

We are in a very exciting period of growth, both within the UK and internationally, with teams based in London, Nottingham, USA and Scandinavia. As we continue to grow we are looking for talented and ambitious individuals to join us to reshape business finance and continue to support our partners and customers in the underserved SME market.

We are proud to have been included in The Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 as one of the 100 fastest growing FinTechs in the UK for two years running.

Liberis was born with a strong purpose and it’s at the heart of who we are today. 

Behind our technology is a really strong and united team, dedicated to helping our partners have the positive impact on businesses that we all want to see. 

Most of us are driven by the idea of helping businesses grow and achieve their ambitions.
Some of us just love creating technology that solves a problem. Either way, we believe in what we do, and we enjoy doing it. We’re particularly proud to have been formally recognised by Great Place To Work as one of the UK’s Best (Medium) Workplaces, as well as the 3rd Best (Medium) Workplace For Women and a centre of Excellence For Wellbeing.

We are serious about Scrum, continuous deployment and continuous integration. Insights gained for real customer experiences help us continuously improve their online experience and optimize our partner integrations.

Therefore we encourage flexibility and finding a working structure that fits for both you and the team.

What will you be doing here?

  • Leading and motivating a team of innovative developers responsible for building prototypes and minimum viable products (MVPs) to enable learning and testing hypotheses which will contribute to Liberis’ strategic business and technology roadmaps.
  • Hands on development as the need arises.
  • Contribute to architectural governance to ensure efficiency, scalability and security
  • Act as mentor and guide to the engineers in your team, setting an example not only in work ethic but a desire to create the next generation of business and technology capabilities for Liberis.
  • Working closely with the Heads of Architecture and Engineering as well as peers to continuously improve the delivery pipeline
