Software Engineer

London, United Kingdom – Full-time

Aire’s credit insight engine makes credit fairer for consumers, and more valuable to lenders. We believe that context improves credit decisions. So when a customer isn’t catered for by a traditional credit bureau, we offer a second chance - inviting customers to tell us about themselves.

Aire partners with a range of lenders including Toyota Financial Services, Zopa and N Brown Group to name just a few, as well as partnering with Experian in the UK and US.

People are at the heart of what Aire does. We’re motivated by social purpose and bringing change to people’s lives, driving greater financial inclusion. We’re also passionate and committed to creating a brilliant work environment and culture, where people will grow not just their careers but as people too.


Our engineering team is a small, collaborative and agile team of 8. They have a strong common sense of purpose and passion for building great software, the best possible way. Everyone on the team is a polyglot and full stack engineer, and we adhere to Scrum (we have squads and tribes). We like to Pair Program too (where appropriate, we’re not religious about it).

We’re looking for similarly passionate, driven software engineers to join us, as we have a lot to build and deliver, for our partners, our data team and product. A lot of what is being built is greenfield.

As an engineer you thrive on the opportunity to discover, learn and explore new ways, better ways of doing things. We’re happy to take applications from people with a broad range of software engineering skills, not just the ones we use. TDD, CD/CI is also core to the way we like to build software.

  • Build the environment for the Data team to productionise their models for our Partners.
