Looking to do work that matters?

We get it – it’s why most people come to Cleo. Together we’re fighting for the world’s financial health, building an AI that helps our users make the best money decisions from day one. We’ve helped 4 million people so far with personalised insights and a voice you don’t expect in FinTech. But it’s time to do more.


As we enter the next phase, we’re looking for more improvisers, data geeks and grown ups who want to own their work and create meaningful change.


We’re looking for a brilliant backend Ruby engineer to join us on our mission to fight for the world's financial health. You’ll be joining a team of adaptable, creative and product-focused engineers who ship working software. We understand our customers, we understand their pain, and we are passionate about helping them. 


Life as an Engineer at Cleo

  • We don’t deliberate exhaustively over all the what-ifs. We focus on being effective. We make small changes and test them quickly. 
  • We think the deliberate, conscious and careful accumulation of tech debt is a powerful tool that lets us ship code and value to our users faster. 
  • We write code to be read, debugged and maintained by humans. 
  • We help each other. We learn the best and quickest by reviewing each others’ code and giving each other useful, constructive feedback.
