Software Engineer

London, United Kingdom – Full-time

We exist to make credit more equitable for everyone. We believe that context improves credit decisions. When a customer doesn’t meet the criteria of a traditional credit bureau, we offer a second chance, by inviting customers to tell us about themselves.


Aire is building a credit assessment tool that improves human-level intelligence and eliminates its biases.

Aire partners with a range of lenders including Toyota Financial Services, Zopa and N Brown Group to name just a few.

Background

Our engineering team is a small, collaborative and agile team of 6, that has a strong common sense of purpose and passion for building great software, the best possible way.

A lot of what is being built is greenfield.
