Who is Oakam? 

Oakam is a digital micro-lender helping underbanked, overlooked, consumers onto and up the credit ladder. We believe that the credit industry is broken for the growing number of consumers looking to access vital funds, that help them establish or improve their credit score. At Oakam, we’re challenging the status quo with a new model for consumer credit powered by the smartphone. Our digital, data-rich approach to micro-lending enables more personalised and inclusive credit scoring, that is lowering the barriers to affordable credit for those who need it most.

The Role 

Our environment is agile and fast paced so we are looking for someone who is hungry to make rapid changes and deliver top-quality products to make a positive impact on our customers' lives. We are looking for a AWS/FS/React/Node Js Developer that is capable of driving rapid innovation through the use of pragmatic, yet robust solutions in the short and medium term. We are modernising our tech stack so we would be very happy to hire someone with experience in, or an ambition to learn, any of the tools in our new stack (see list below). 


This year we are pushing the boundaries of what our platform and our business are capable of and we are looking for a pragmatic, innovative, results-driven developer to help us make that a reality. Bring your solid experience with C#, SQL server, and .NET, your willingness to learn, combine that with a positive attitude and a willingness to muck in with the team and together we can take this company to new heights. All while making consumer credit more accessible for all who need it - what could be more rewarding?  

You will report to our Head of Core Services Engineering.  

Everything to play for  

This year we’re changing, we’re leaning out our technology platform, led by our Chief Technology Officer. We’re investing in remote working and working smarter. We have an exciting challenge to reimagine how to capture the lifecycle of credit at Oakam. Finally, this year we’re customer first and product-centric, which means thinking about how to build a credit product that makes our customers happy.
