Bud's mission is simple. We're here to create the world’s most compelling financial data products. The products we're building are used by some of the world's most prestigious institutions to help millions of their customers take control of their finances.
We recently raised $80m in our Series B so you’ll be joining us at a really exciting time as we expand into new markets and invest heavily into the business.
Bud works to create innovative, creative and compelling financial data products. We do this by working closely with enterprise & SME clients who utilise Bud’s Dashboards, APIs and Web Flows. Our front-end engineers build web applications that enable us to bring the intelligence of the Bud Platform to life. We strive to provide key financial insights to a wide range of consumers and clients through our established products and exciting use cases.
What is it like to be a Tech Lead at Bud?
Our tech leads are responsible for fundamental technical strategy and execution within their product teams. Working alongside the Head of Engineering and tech leads across our other teams, you will aim to define, execute and maintain overall technical strategy and excellence.
These aren’t requirements, but are definitely a plus for any candidate!
We offer competitive salaries in line with industry benchmarks, set using extensive market data. We review salaries on an annual basis to make sure we continue to reward people well for their contributions at Bud. We have benchmarked this role between £90,000-£110,000.
Career Progression 📈
We all know how important it is to make sure we’re all growing in our roles. We have a detailed career progression framework to help you track your development and growth during your time at Bud, and your level within this framework will be formally reviewed every six months.
We understand how important it is to look after your physical and mental health, and also that this looks different for everyone. To support this, we offer a range of wellbeing benefits for our team. We have private medical insurance as well as a £50 monthly flexible wellbeing allowance. We also partner with the mental health platform, Spill, who provide therapy services and support.
Learning & Development 📚
As part of our commitment to developing our people, all employees at Bud have an annual £1000 pot available to use towards their learning and development - think books, courses & events - the choice is yours.
We also have quarterly R&D days, giving you the opportunity to take a break for 2 days from live projects and work on something that’s inspired you, either independently or as part of a collaborative team.
Flexible Working ⏳
As a trusted member of Bud, you’ll have the freedom and flexibility to manage your time and routine in a way that suits you, and your team, allowing you to deliver your best work. All of our roles can be based in our London office, or fully remote/distributed in the UK.
Time Off 🏖️
We’re a team that likes to work hard, so we need to make sure we balance this with time to rest and relax. We offer 25 days holiday, plus the usual bank holidays, plus additional time off over the holiday season.
We also give everyone two days of paid volunteering leave per year, to spend time on projects and initiatives that matter to you.
We believe in helping our staff save for retirement, with Bud matching pension contributions up to 5%.
We’ll get you all set up to work effectively and comfortably from Day 1 with an Apple laptop and any additional equipment you might need to work remotely.
We’re big on keeping Bud a social place to work, with big quarterly events (we throw an epic summer party) and regular team socials.
We are big advocates of sustainable transport and travel, and are members of a cycle to work scheme. We also have season ticket loans available.
