Description

FreeAgent πŸš€

FreeAgent is:

This is your chance to come and shape the future of small business banking and accounting!

Make a difference πŸ’«

It's an exciting time in the accounting and banking space. We're seeing a revolution in the FinTech industry, and new government initiatives such as Making Tax Digital and Open Banking are opening up new features and products for customers.

The technology in this space is changing rapidly and at FreeAgent we're working on the cutting edge. We're focused on providing the best possible user experience for our growing customer base.

Creating the best place to work πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸ’»

We want people to be productive, to have career opportunities, to be focused on meaningful work and to have an excellent work/life balance. We like to think we work smarter, not harder, which is why we stick to a 35-hour working week and still Get Things Done.

We have built a powerful CI/CD platform which can run 32,000 automated tests in less than five minutes which allows us to remain productive at scale, and allows all engineers, regardless of level, to deploy code to production multiple times a day.

We value a diverse team, and we believe the variety of experiences and backgrounds in our team make us stronger. We believe in a learning culture and encourage self-development. We have regular 'wiggle weeks' and twice a year we hold our legendary 'Hack Days'. Engineers write about what they do, and what they learn, on our popular engineering blog.

We have an amazing office in central Edinburgh (one of the great cities of the world), but only half of our engineering team work here – the other half work fully remotely, distributed around the UK. We currently only offer remote working to senior engineers and we're proud of how well it works. We'll bring you to Edinburgh for onboarding, hack days and a few other social events throughout the year so you can enjoy some face to face time with your colleagues. Day to day you'll enjoy remote-first meetings, online coffee time, slack, hangouts and generally good remote etiquette. Our remote people regularly present at our weekly town hall too!
