Software Engineer

Full-time fundible in Cardiff


Location: Cardiff Salary: £23,000 to £26,000


Fundible (www.fundible.com) is building technology to make collaborative purchases possible. First of all we’re bring crowdfunding to ecommerce. By making unaffordable purchases possible and shared purchases easy for consumers, we increase merchants’ sales, customer acquisition and data insight. Think kickstarter for retailers.

We’re then going to target other markets….. Watch this space.

We’re not an ecommerce platform and we’re not a payment system.

What we’re doing is building a scalable, disruptive solution that can work with merchants to help initiate £100m’s incremental revenue, whilst capturing new forms of consumer data & insight.

We are a pre-launch startup based in Cardiff (just off the A48/M4). You will work side by side the 2 co-founders and there is a management team of experienced professionals and entrepreneurs, who have had several successful exits.

We have been inundated with requests and are currently in the process of rolling out a beta to initial customers. We even made UK Merchants & Payments Conference Innovation Showcase, alongside heavily VC backed startups.

This is a unique opportunity to take a crucial early role in a high-growth tech startup with global potential.


We are seeking programmers who love solving problems who want the challenge of growing a startup into a global business.

The objective of the role is to develop, maintain and support the internally produced software applications. The Lead Java Developer will be involved in the full development life cycle of analysis, design, development, testing, documentation, support and implementation.

The Lead Java Developer will need a good academic background, with a degree in Computer Science (or similar discipline) and experience with Java and web-technologies. In addition, the Lead Java Developer must demonstrate initiative, flexibility, a customer focused approach and the right balance of pragmatism and enthusiasm.

We use the Java platform on Linux primarily with Mongo as our NoSQL persistent data store. We also integrate disparate data sources from direct SQL to web services. Java Script would be useful, but is not essential.

Experience of working in java development teams, building social media application and knowledge of traditional systems would be an advantage.


  • Be comfortable working in a rapid iteration development cycle moving from prototype to production while engineering to a high level of quality, using leading automated testing techniques.

  • Enjoy / understand the importance of working in all layers of the platform architecture UI, business logic and persistence.

  • A willingness to pro-actively research and use new libraries and projects as needed to add new platform capabilities to complete our roadmap.

  • You will have a solid grounding in how web based server side applications and databases work.

  • Our platform is primarily Java-based, so strong Java and OOD skills are an absolute must.

  • Experience with Linux and Mongo is also advantageous.

  • Basic understanding of UI concepts and languages, such as Java Script or is advantageous

  • Understand how to describe and design a system in terms of data structures and algorithms, in order to participate effectively in core design workshops.

  • Totally committed to writing the most efficient, scalable and robust code possible, and to continuously improve your ability in this area.

  • Finally, the right attitude. It’s going to be a bumpy ride and you will face a lot of challenges so you’ll have to be happy to roll your sleeves up and learn.
