Engineering at Bud 💻

The software engineering team are tasked with solving highly technical problems to enable solutions that tangibly benefit the lives of millions of people. From how to scale our solutions to tens of millions of users in the most effective manner to integrating hundreds of third-party businesses. Data is key to our business and we need passionate developers to help capture it, store it, transform it, research and most importantly secure it.

Our mission

Put simply, we want to improve the daily lives of millions of people - ourselves included. By making finances easier to manage, everybody can be good with money.

How we’re getting on

Bud is an early stage business, but we’re growing fast. 2018 saw the team expand from 17 to 70 (yes, really) - and the pace is only picking up. Alongside this, we’ve won some notable awards, and work closely with HSBC to ensure our tech gets out there.

Who we are

We’re a diverse group of people. With backgrounds ranging from data science to music production, more than 80% of our team come from outside the world of finance – providing us with a unique perspective as we help consumers feel more in control of their lives. For us, an interest in people comes first; finance follows.

What we’re doing

The apps and infrastructure we’re building are designed to place the power of personal data back into the hands of normal people.

Picture this: a world where your bank knew you were paying too much for your gas bill and could switch you to a more suitable provider, or understood your savings targets and could automatically find you a better deal. That’s what we’re working towards.

What excites us

We love independent people who lead by example. We also love our R&D days: two days dedicated to your own experimental projects and learning, happening every 6 weeks.

Open banking? This is our bread ’n’ butter, a massive game changer not just for the industry but for people like you! It essentially allows companies like us to come up with new and exciting ways to help you make the most of your banking data.

Rental Recognition? This an awesome new service we’re working to make your rental payments contribute to your credit history, just one of the many different ways that we’re helping people to jump onto the housing ladder.

Benefits

Holidays

Bud gives 25 days holidays, all bank holidays and we think the festive period in December should be spent relaxing so we give the whole team time off between Christmas & New Year's Eve!

Pension

As part of our company pension plan, we offer contributions to match up to 5% of your salary.

Equipment

You’ll be provided with a brand new MacBook or PC, and any computer accessories you need so you’ll have the best tools for the job!

Hours & flexibility

Our core hours are 9:30 am to 6 pm. However, as part of our high-performance team, you'll benefit from the flexibility to manage your own day optimising the way you work so you can be at your best.

Social

We’re big on keeping Bud a social team, so Christmas and Summer parties can be a big deal. We also put on quarterly events and have a social committee organising things like sports events, music gigs and after-work meet-ups!

Office

Bud’s new office is a newly renovated space, specifically designed to our needs. Cool interior, breakout spaces, professional meeting rooms, brand new kitchen, loads of bike storage and a shower room for our part-time athletes. As our office is in The Bower WeWork there are also tons of events, not to mention, beverages on tap.
