We are working on building the next $100M revenue Fintech company (founded in Europe) To do this, we know we need the best product in the world and that means we are obsessed by bringing together the most talented team possible; with diverse experiences, backgrounds and skills. We have a variety of backgrounds in our team, from people who joined us with zero experience (through the Code Academy - read more here) to those who have spent lots of time in huge companies with bags of experience. We are focused on delivering world class software products that deliver true value. With 1000’s of enterprise customers like Expedia, Chubb, XPO – we must be doing something right. But the journey is just beginning… we have 100k users on our platform every month and handle more than $2 trillion of invoice transactions. At approx. $35M revenue today and with about 250 Sidetraders worldwide, we are not an early-stage start-up, but with ambitious plans for growth, we are at an exciting time in our story; and need the right talent to help us achieve our goals. How our teams are structured We have three Tech Hubs at Sidetrade, one in Birmingham (UK), one in Paris (France) and one in Calgary (Canada). We work in small, autonomous teams mixed with highly skilled engineers, usually up to a maximum of 7. Each team (or Squad) has a Product Manager, Technical Lead, a mix of engineers and dedicated QA. Each Squad has the autonomy to decide how they work best, within a basic Agile framework and work on strategic, customer-focused projects that deliver huge value. Guilds As well as our day-to-day teams who focus on product delivery, we also have what we call Guilds. These Guilds or groups of like-minded engineers, focus on specific technologies to focus/harness passion on deep technical expertise as well as following latest market trends.
