WHO WE ARE
We are both a startup and a £1 billion success story. We have the fun, energy, drive and determination of a start-up, but are also part of an organisation that has created more than 10 multi-million pound companies in the past 20 years.
Our products are designed to solve real problems and help real people. Our first product - Tando Loans - is a new type of lending, based on trust - not computerised credit scores. We believe that the big banks fail to look after some good customers who are let down by these digital credit scoring systems. Because of this, we have combined technology and human decision making to create an innovative, fast and simple lending solution based on trust and relationships - the way it should be!
First launch of business was in Denmark on May 2018. Since then our Danish team has grown a lot and it has just continued to smash our records, so now we are in a couple of months away from opening our first office in Copenhagen. Then in March of this year the Finnish team was born, our SECOND national team of Tando! Our goal is to within a year have offices in Copenhagen, Helsinki, Stockholm and Oslo. So basically, our business just keeps on growing exponentially - and we REALLY need more amazing people to jump on board! Are YOU one of them?
THE RIGHT CANDIDATE
We are looking for people who are frustrated by the status quo and are DESPERATE for an opportunity to prove themselves in an exciting, fast-growing business. The most important thing for us is to build the RIGHT TEAM, but if you are looking for a job that you finish at 5pm and don’t even think about until 9am the next day - then this isn’t for you. That means we are even MORE INTERESTED in WHO you are and HOW you think than we are in your past work or studies.
To do this well (and we mean really well!) - there are a few things that we think you will need:
You will be great at working things out. This is not an environment for people who need to be spoon fed.
You’re willing to jump into things head first, and work it out as you go - make sure you are comfortable with being uncomfortable.
This is a fast-paced environment so you will need the ability to work on multiple projects at once and will have the communication skills to quickly iterate designs.
You KNOW how to use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator - or are willing to LEARN.
This is a hard job - it’s swim quick or sink. If you think you are smarter than average, able to adapt quickly, pay attention to details without losing the big picture and you know what it means to be PASSIONATE about your role, we want you!
WHAT WE CAN OFFER
We believe that this is very much a two way street. So we offer you some pretty awesome stuff in exchange.
Firstly - the opportunity to be part of a fast growing business. If you have ever been in a startup type environment in the past, then you will know how diverse and valuable that can be. It’s work hard, play hard! If you haven’t had that before, then take it from us - you will learn more in 6 months with us than you would in 3 years of corporate life.
Secondly, we know that you’ll love working in our offices in the south of England. We’re lucky enough to work in the sunny coastal town of Bournemouth, plus plenty of other awesome perks - as long as you’re ready to get stuck in and help us expand our exciting Nordic startup! We can offer you a subsidise onsite cafe and kitchen with restaurant quality lunches, gym memberships, free holiday homes, top of the range IT equipment, parties, flexible working and casual dress code. Sounds good?
UP FOR THE CHALLENGE ?
If you match our description and you are looking for something you can immerse yourself in, experience incredible highs (and inevitable lows) - something where you have the opportunity to really move the needle and be part of building a business - then this might be what you are looking for!
IF YOU HAVE - we would ask that with your application you submit some examples of your work in a web designer/ developer role and explain your exact part of this production. If you are invited to interview you should be aware that we may ask you to sit a test. We may also ask for code examples.
Remember - we often receive hundreds of applications for the jobs we advertise. How will yours stand out? And if you have ANYTHING you would like to ask just send us email. Who knows, you might be the one!
PS: We love video applications.
