Better homebuying for everyone involved

Acre is rebuilding the UK’s £1.4 trillion mortgage market from the ground up, with a completely new, end-to-end management system for mortgages.

Our platform cuts out the unnecessary admin, pain and friction from buying a home. We're covering the entire journey, from figuring out what you can borrow, to getting your keys. We're guided both by the voice of real home buyers and by our close relationships with brokers, lenders and insurers, through our exclusive broker distribution agreement representing over £40 billion in mortgage lending each year. We won’t stop until the process of buying, mortgaging, conveyancing, and insuring your home is affordable and completely seamless.

Our user base is constantly growing, and we are now looking to expand the team. Join our engineering team to help change the way people buy homes.

The role:

We are looking for a Graduate Systems Engineer that wants to help ensure our platform for homebuying is always available and secure. Your role will be to work closely with the broader team to help ensure our CI pipeline is smooth, efficient and ensures quality; our production environment is performant, stable and secure; and we have an exceptional degree of insight and transparency into our operational environment.

Your approach to the role should be that no task is done twice.

What you’ll be doing:

As a key member of the engineering team you will be responsible for the implementation and testing of non-functional aspects of our platform such as security, performance and scaling that delivers our product to users, keeps it secure and helps us understand its performance in the real world.

During our software development life cycle, you will be expected to work with the frontend and backend engineering teams to ensure they are able to efficiently deliver software while meeting our software quality and security benchmarks.

Who you will be:

  • Passionate about software engineering and about delivering a quality product.
  • Enjoy tinkering with systems and networks. If you have a collection of Raspberry PIs at home or perhaps a home network with VLANs, this role is for you.
  • Have an awareness of technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform & Ansible.
  • Have an awareness of information security principles, particular with respect to environment hardening.
  • Have an understanding of implementing monitoring and logging for security, operational and application performance management.
  • Have an understanding of CI.

What we offer:

  • Competitive salary
  • Chance to make an impact within a fully funded, early-stage Fintech start-up in a unique position to make a difference to the mortgage market
  • One weeks free accommodation for those relocating
  • 25 days leave
  • Private healthcare, a cash plan, pension contribution
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • See our careers page for more of what we offer

We’re looking for people that will get stuck in and make a difference. We have a great collaborative, entrepreneurial team that are passionate about what they do. If you want to join a team that is tackling a big problem space, then we’d love to hear from you.

All open roles
