    The Company

    Moneycado is the world’s first savings account for travel. Using a combination of behavioural economic insights, incentives from partner travel operators, and a brilliantly intuitive interface, we’re making the savings experience for travel incredible.

    We’re one of only five startups within Founders Factory’s Travel Accelerator, with backing of some of the biggest names in travel and fintech.

    The Role

    We are seeking a Lead Developer to build and own the technical product. This will be our first full-time hire, and one who we’d intend to develop into the CTO as the product and business scales. You will have an equity stake and the opportunity to join us at the outset of a long ride!

    We already have a prototype product and a production integration with UK banking infrastructure. The next goal will be to develop a Minimum Viable Product for Monzo account holders.


    • Own the technical product, working with the CEO and COO to prioritise features based on feedback
    • Shape the kind of savings experience which makes users say ‘Wow, this doesn’t feel like banking!’
    • Scale and grow the engineering function
    • Input into the company’s strategic direction

    Technical Ability

    • Demonstrated ability to build, ship and iterate product from scratch
    • A good breadth of technical ability, with focus on full-stack web
    • Expertise in evaluating a variety of technical platforms and determining technical strategy
    • Bonus: Mobile app development with a solution like React Native.


    • Willingness to join us ‘in the trenches’ as we shape a product from scratch
    • Commitment to giving and receiving regular and honest feedback
    • A growth mindset


    • Salary: £60-70k
    • Equity: 3-6%
    • Regular mentoring from our consultant CTO for your personal development
    • Access to the Founders Factory ecosystem, one of Europe’s most vibrant tech communities
