    What do we do

    Having a place to call your own, to build memories, to feel complete… that’s something we appreciate the importance of. It’s why, at Trussle, we’re passionate about making home ownership more affordable and accessible to everyone.

    As one of the most exciting fintech scale-ups in the UK, we’re leading the charge in revolutionising the journey of owning a home. We’ve started with mortgages, making the process transparent, simple, and intuitive. Our customer-first approach has made us the highest rated online mortgage broker on Trustpilot, and key partnerships with the likes of Zoopla have helped us reach millions of homeowners across the UK. But with £10 billion wasted each year by homeowners being on the wrong mortgage deal, we’re far from done.

    We have big ambitions, and this is reflected in the funding position we’re now in - nearly £20 million from carefully selected institutional investors including Goldman Sachs, Propel, and LocalGlobe - investors that have backed the likes of IHS Markit (Nasdaq), coinbase, DocuSign, Citymapper, Improbable, Lovefilm (acquired by Amazon), Transferwise and Zoopla (London Stock Exchange).

    We’re excited to present you with an opportunity to join Trussle, the home of home ownership.


    Our values

    Be brave

    We’re ambitious and experimental, in our drive to make things better. We fail fast, learn and keep moving. And we’re free to openly and constructively challenge - one another, and the status quo.

    Make it simple

    We hunt down simplicity in a world of complexity. That means focusing on what matters most - in our product design and our communications, without dumbing things down. And we keep our processes straightforward and transparent, to facilitate efficiency and trust.

    Invest in each other

    We treat everyone like family. We support one another, going above and beyond without expecting anything in return. We take the time to understand how others are feeling, and we celebrate success.

    Own it

    We have confidence in our convictions and aren’t afraid to back ourselves. We own our own goals, take pride in delivering and stay true to our word. And we give others the space and autonomy to make it happen.


    Engineering at Trussle

    As a rule, we’re technology agnostic, if you can articulate why a particular language or piece of technology is right for Trussle, we want you to bring this to the table. Most of our applications are written in TypeScript, although we have some JavaScript and Go services as well. Our front end applications are written in a mixture of React and Angular 1.x. Behind the scenes we use NodeJS, as well as PostgreSQL and ElasticSearch. All of our services are hosted on AWS, currently with a Kubernetes deployment on top. CI/CD is handled by Jenkins, with automated Docker builds and deployments to staging. Git and Github are part of our process.

    Our recruitment process

    We tend to be flexible in our approach. We make our hiring process work around you - we understand that you do have a life outside of our interview process so are happy to accommodate. However, you can find below a taste of what our process usually looks like:

    1. Initial chat with someone from the Talent team (30min) - We do have a career website and you can do some research about us, but there are surely things only insiders can bring to you. This will be the opportunity for you to discover Trussle from another angle.

    2. Technical phone call with an engineer (30min) - Now that you know a bit more about us, we would like to know more about you. We want to make sure Trussle would be the right place for you to choose as your next work home.

    3. Take-home challenge (in your own time) - A fun and simple challenge which will be reviewed by two of our engineers in 24-73 hours upon submission.

    4. On-site interview (half a day) - you get to meet the team, engineers and non engineers alike, we want to make sure Trussle is a place that you will not regret to choose as your next home.
