About Nutmeg

WHAT WE DO:

We've built the UK’s first online discretionary investment management company. We are regulated by the FCA, endorsed by the UK Government and — most importantly — supported by our many enthusiastic and loyal users.

We give our customers complete transparency – and, we hope, complete peace of mind while allowing them to create as many funds as they like. We regularly re-balance portfolios, selecting from a diverse, global range of assets, to ensure our customers have the best chance of staying on track.

Nutmeg may sit within the Financial Services, but on the inside we run like your typical Technology company. Our people come from all different backgrounds. We hire motivated, creative, intelligent people from all walks of life. We believe our peoples personal and work experience help us give our customers the best value and customer care. We are always thriving to improve our site & services, giving our customers the best journey all the way through on-boarding to making money!

We’re proud of what we’ve achieved already as a company: building a team of talented, dedicated individuals; creating an intuitive service that is a shining example of how investing should be; and attracting media interest from around the world.

We’re proud that we’re reforming an industry that has grown so bloated on its own profit margins that it hasn’t always put the customer first.

We’re proud that on average, each of our customers refers more than two friends or family members to Nutmeg. But most of all, we’re proud to have helped so many people get one step closer to their financial goals.

THE ENGINEERING TEAM:

Our Engineering team is lead by our CTO, Ewan Silver. He and the team are in the process of building out our award winning web and investment management platforms.
They run a pure AWS-based cloud environment and deliver features using a continuous delivery approach. Our continuous delivery capability means we are actively working on making sure our test infrastructure is as automated and reliable as possible. Our platform is built with a mixture of Java, Ruby and JavaScript.

WHO DO WE WANT TO HIRE?

As we continue to shake up the investment world, we are building a team of dedicated, visionary professionals — a team that knows
what success looks likes, respects the talents and wisdom of others and thrives in an environment of fast growth and fresh challenges.

We want people who match the company’s ambition, honesty and integrity. We want people who want to make a difference.

OUR RECRUITMENT PROCESS:

We understand the importance of getting the cycle of hiring new talent right and aim to keep the turnaround of the interview process as short as possible.

Our hiring manager kicks off the process with an initial 30 minute phone call giving Nutmeg the opportunity to give you a good insight into business and the Engineering team. They will touch over the projects and working style of the Engineering team and will quiz you on your work experience and outside interests.

Technical Codes are a good way for us to see how you work as an Engineer. We send out a code to all candidates. In the next stage, face to face, our Engineers will partner with you on how & why you chose to write the code the way you did.

Next up is a face to face interview in our office. You'll meet the hiring manager & a few of the Engineering team, giving you an opportunity to have an in depth technical conversation with an array of team members. This meeting usually lasts for about 2 hours.

Finally.... an offer. When we believe an Engineer is the right person for the job / team we move quickly! We turn offers around as quickly as possible. In some situations it will be the same day as the interview.

WHEN YOU START:

Nutmeg understands the feeling of ‘interview and new starter’ jitters and does its best to make all applicants feel as comfortable, well informed and excited, leaving a positive imprint throughout the process.

Once you've signed your contract, our People & Talent team will commence the on-boarding process. They work tirelessly to make sure your desk, computer systems, laptop, on-boarding manual & your Nutmeg hoody & t-shirt are waiting for you at your new desk. A 2 week induction schedule awaits you, giving you an opportunity to understand the wider business and meet everyone in the office.
