Software Engineer at Fat Llama

About the company
What if owning things was no longer important? What if those expensive items that are hard to find, can be available to you in a second? What if that investment you’ve already made can be used to pay for those things you can’t afford to own?
At Fat Llama we believe in that future. We believe that one day, owning those things we only occasionally need will be as ridiculous as buying a house every time you want to go on holiday.
Our borrowers are creative, experimental and curious. They look for opportunities to try new things, using everything from high end cameras to campervans. They want the convenience of on-demand and a quality of rental they could never normally afford.
Our lenders are entrepreneurial and own high quality desirable things, that they only use a couple of times a year. They want to make some extra money from their stuff and some are already making up to $8,000 a month.
We’re building the platform to enable more of these win-wins globally. Our customers trust us in droves – we’re growing fast week on week. Last year we went through Y Combinator and recently we announced a $10M raise from amazing investors to superpower our growth.

Technology is at the heart of everything we do at Fat Lama, allowing us to solve a problem that has never been solved before. Our whole team gets a say in the product & tech roadmap, and our engineering team takes pride in writing, testing and deploying new features on a daily basis.
As an engineer at Fat Lama, you’ll be responsible for crafting, building and running the software which underpins our marketplace. We’re looking for somebody that can deliver solid engineering whilst moving at the same speed as our constantly growing business. You should also be excited about helping shape the direction and culture of our engineering team going forward.
Are you excited by the prospect of learning new technologies? As engineer number 5, you’ll be required to wear many different hats. Whether it be designing scalable systems, building tools to help our Operations team keep the business running, or slicing and dicing data for our analytics dashboards, you should welcome the challenge. You should thrive in a constantly changing environment and enjoy learning new things at a fast pace.
Our team takes pride in owning our work truly end-to-end. We’re looking for people who can plan, experiment, build, test, deploy, measure and iterate before calling it done. As a small team, we try and build on the shoulders of giants, which means that you’ll often find us working with the latest and greatest technologies.
