We're looking for highly motivated software engineers who are keen to help us bring mortgages into the 21st century using the latest and best in technology and software design.
Koodoo is a new financial technology business that is shaking up the world of mortgages. The mortgage market is undergoing a major shift, with much more emphasis being placed on consumer choice, transparency and the role for new technology. Backed by the UK's leading digital venture builder (Blenheim Chalcot), Koodoo is building the technology to help connect customers seamlessly and intelligently with their next mortgage. We are working with some of the biggest names in financial services - comparison sites, marketplace providers, lenders - to deliver a better mortgage application and renewal experience to millions of borrowers in the UK.
The team is spread out throughout London and Nottingham but we're happy to accommodate remote working arrangements as we, in fact, currently operate a fully working from home model for everyone in the company.

We have developed a cloud-based, API-driven platform that connects mortgage customers with the best financial products for their needs. We push ourselves to use the best tools for the job - whether that's by using the latest technologies, leveraging the best of the open source ecosystem, or using tried and trusted development patterns. We are managing a 'true' microservices system architecture, using NodeJS, MongoDB, Google Cloud Platform, Kubernetes, Docker, CircleCI, ReactJS and much more.
