Our Story
Hello there. We’re Zopa.
We started our journey back in 2005, building the first ever peer-to-peer lending company. Fast forward to 2020 and we launched Zopa Bank. A bank that listens to what our customers don’t like about finance and does the opposite. We’re redefining what it feels like to work in finance. Our vision for a new era of banking puts people front and centre — we’ve built a business that empowers everyone to aim high, every day, to move finance forward. Find out more about our fantastic offerings at Zopa.com!
We’re incredibly proud of our achievements and none of it would be possible without the amazing team here. It’s not just industry awards we’re winning, we’ve also been named in the top three UK’s Most Loved Workplaces.
If you embrace unconventional challenges, are unafraid to think differently and are driven to make an outsized impact, you’ll thrive here at Zopa, so join us, and make it count. Want to see us in action? Follow us on Instagram @zopalife
We are looking for a strong mobile developer with experience in delivering iOS and Android mobile apps using React Native from conception all the way to release. Every engineer in our teams plays a key role, so you’ll need to be comfortable thinking on your feet, learning new technology, and pushing for impact. But you won’t be doing it alone: you’ll have the support of a cross-functional team around you, including backend engineers, designers, and product people.

The role:

  • Work in a small, cross-functional squad on feelgood money features
  • Making our iOS and Android applications more robust and delightful
  • Make sure we have all the infrastructure in place that we need to build fast and clean
  • Learn new skills, whether it's about deploying mobile apps or the latest intricacies of TypeScript
  • Collaborate with designers on ways to make the Zopa app truly feelgood
  • Deliver fast, semantically clean React Native code

About you:

  • Experience developing cross-platform mobile apps, including using native features
  • Strong commercial experience working with React Native
  • Solid understanding of version control tools (ideally Git)
  • A passion for your craft and doing things “right” (semantics, validity, maintainability…)
  • An interest in our mission and strong customer focus
  • Previous work with backend APIs
  • Have published apps in Google Play or Apple Store

Added bonus:

  • Working knowledge of TypeScript and Redux
  • Understanding of native iOS using Swift or native Android using Kotlin
  • Experience with React Query would be highly desirable
