About Lendable

Lendable is on a mission to make consumer finance amazing: faster, cheaper and friendlier.

We’re building one of the world’s leading fintech companies and are off to a strong start:

  • One of the UK’s newest unicorns with a team of >250 people
  • Among the top 10 fastest-growing tech companies in the UK
  • Profitable since 2017
  • Backed by top investors including Balderton Capital and Goldman Sachs and most recently OTPP (Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan) in 2022
  • Loved by customers with the best reviews in the market (4.9/5 across 10,000s of reviews)

So far, we’ve rebuilt the Big Three consumer finance products from scratch: loans, credit cards and car finance. We get money into our customers’ hands in minutes instead of days.

We’re growing fast, and there’s a lot more to do: we’re going after the two biggest Western markets (UK and US) where trillions are held by big banks with dated systems and painful processes. We launched our loans product in the US in 2022 with more product launches to follow this year!

Join us if you want to

  • Take ownership across a broad remit. You are trusted to make decisions that drive a material impact on the direction and success of Lendable from day 1.
  • Work in small teams of exceptional people who are relentlessly resourceful to solve problems and find smarter solutions than the status quo.
  • Build the best technology in-house, using new data sources, machine learning, and AI to make machines do the heavy lifting

  • Assist with ad hoc weekly, monthly, and quarterly accounting functions, such as preparing files for upload into the accounting system and supporting month-end processes and journals
  • You will provide other support where required including filling and administration assistance

What do you need to succeed in this role

  • Minimum of 1-2 years of experience of working in accounting, business financial environment or worked in the fintech space and want to move into a finance role
