Senior Software Engineer

What we’re looking for...

We're Zuto and we're looking for a passionate, talented and ambitious Senior Software Engineer to join our team.

Who we are...

Zuto is a marketplace connecting customers, lenders and dealers. Our reason for being is to transform the car finance experience with simplicity and integrity.

We believe in enabling our team of over 300 Zutonites, based across two sites in Manchester City Centre and South Manchester to work autonomously within an energising and inspiring environment. Our teamwork productively and imaginatively when they are free from rigid hierarchy and structures, focused on solving customer problems and delivering a world-class customer journey. Zuto’s flexible and supportive approach empowers achievement and the delivery of outstanding results.

Zuto has a solid history and we are building on these strong foundations to bring about industry transformation by applying internet economy business methodologies to completely re-define the customer experience and reset expectations, with the goal of reducing the process, which currently can take days, to one hour or less.

Once perfected in the UK, we believe that the business model can be replicated internationally and that Zuto can become a global enterprise.

What will my role responsibilities be?

Zuto is looking for a number of talented senior software engineers for our core product engineering squads shaping our online product. As a Zuto engineer, you will be responsible for the design, development, testing, and operations of part of our core platform.

We are building an end-to-end online car financing journey that blends our sales advisor customer engagement with powerful automated systems that takes the hassle and stress out of buying a car.

Our back end platform is made up of a series of .NET microservices which support our website, customer portal and call centre platform, alongside communication with lenders and other 3rd parties. All this is built and maintained in-house by our engineers based in Manchester City Centre.

All our software is pipelined to allow continuous delivery, with our teams given flexibility around what works best for them to deliver working software. In addition, all our software is hosted in the cloud, primarily AWS, and we utilise IaC to describe our infrastructure. Engineers have complete control over the infrastructure required to run the services being built and maintained.

We lead an experimental culture, following a build, measure and learn approach with an incremental, iterative methodology that replaces assumption with knowledge and certainty.

The role will be to not only be involved with helping to realise and build out new features for the business but to actively work with others to suggest and implement improvements in the existing platform.

Our engineers are always looking to improve our software estate, paying down technical debt and we have a culture of leaving software in a better place than when you found it.
