    Engineering at Bud

    The software engineering team are tasked with solving highly technical problems to enable solutions that tangibly benefit the lives of millions of people. From how to scale our solutions to tens of millions of users in the most effective manner to integrating hundreds of third-party businesses. Data is key to our business and we need passionate developers to help capture it, store it, transform it, research and most importantly secure it.

    Design at Bud

    What to know what's like as well as our design principles? https://design.thisisbud.com/

    Bud is a tech company solving highly technical problems, but user experience and value to end users is close to our hearts. It’s what drives us. Our designers work in product teams, but we still remain a close design team, always looking for opportunities to collaborate closely and do pair design as much as possible. We have weekly design critiques that are open to the company to help foster a strong design culture. We also have a weekly design book club to constantly challenge our thinking and working processes.

    A bit more about us

    We’re a diverse group of people. With backgrounds ranging from data science to music production, more than 80% of our team come from outside the world of finance – providing us with a unique perspective as we help consumers feel more in control of their lives. For us, an interest in people comes first; finance follows.

    More about what we're doing

    The apps and infrastructure we’re building are designed to place the power of personal data back into the hands of normal people. Picture this: a world where your bank knew you were paying too much for your gas bill and could switch you to a more suitable provider, or understood your savings targets and could automatically find you a better deal. That’s what we’re working towards.

    We believe that diversity will make us better.

    Bud’s mission is to make the money part of people’s lives simple. To get there, we need a workforce that is diverse as the people we create our products for. Which means we need people who have different backgrounds and experiences, who are diverse in age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, and ways of thinking. We truly believe that these differences will make us grow as a company and a team. We strive to create a workplace and culture where our people are empowered, supported, given equal opportunities and can bring their authentic selves to work.
