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 just over 150 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

  • Loved by customers with the best reviews in the market (4.8/5 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 worth of these are held by big banks with dated systems and painful processes.

Join us if you want to

  • Work in small teams of exceptional people trusted to take ownership and make decisions quickly.

  • Be 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.
