iOS Developer - Capetown


At ClearScore we want to help everyone manage their finances better. We believe understanding your finances is important, and until now, access to this information has been limited and costly. By providing your credit score and report for free, we are empowering people to take control of their money and improve their financial wellbeing.

We launched in July 2015 and now we have over 12 million users across the world and we want to do more. The business is one of the fastest growing FinTechs in Europe and we are rapidly expanding to the rest of the world. We have won numerous awards for innovation and technology. We have changed the industry for the better and have become the UK’s no.1 credit checking service.

We work in an open source tech environment, crafting a beautiful web and mobile product that positively impacts the lives of millions. Working here offers unparalleled autonomy and constant opportunities to expand your knowledge, as well as unique insight into life in a rapidly growing company as we continue to scale exponentially, expand internationally, and develop innovative new features to keep delighting our audience.

You will be joining the team in our Capetown office, working in an interdisciplinary squad, to take the current open beta product to its full fruition and push into the market. You will develop experiences that are as beautiful and visually complex as they are helpful and optimised.

We are proud to say that our engineering team at ClearScore is world class and at the heart of making this mission a reality for our millions of users. For more information on our tech stack check out our Tech Radar 2020, how we work is summarised in our Engineering Principles and we have many other Tech Blogs on Medium.
