Sr UI/JavaScript Engineer

About Us

Lending Club (NYSE: LC) opened in 2007 with one simple mission: create a more efficient, transparent and customer-friendly alternative to the traditional banking system that offers creditworthy borrowers lower interest rates and investors better returns. Today, we're the world's largest online credit marketplace, and we're radically changing the way lending operates. We're proud of the recognition we've received, including being named a World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer, a CNBC Disruptor 50, and one of The World's 10 Most Innovative Companies in Finance by Fast Company. We're conveniently located in downtown San Francisco, California.

The Role

The Lending Club UI Platform team is looking for passionate, modern day UI/JavaScript developers that understand that building complex web experiences requires truly engineered solutions. The UI engineering mindset and toolbox has radically advanced over the last couple years. We are embracing this change by redefining our whole UI architecture, using modern open source libraries. DevOps is integrated into everything a modern engineer does, and we embrace owning our platform from code commit to production deployment. We are looking for experienced people who also support this movement and want to be part of our mission to transform the banking system. We have a unique opportunity for you to bring your talent and passion to drive a massive change in how we build users experiences across all of our product lines and how consumers experience the Lending Club platform.

  • 5-7 years software engineering experience in a web environment in any language
  • 2+ years hands-on production level coding experience with Node.js in a consumer application

  • Production experience with npm, gulp, asset pipelines (browserify, webpack, or similar)
  • Practical knowledge of idiomatic JavaScript programming patterns
  • Ability to create web applications that maintain a rich experience using stateless HTTP design patterns

Why Join Us?

We offer all the important stuff like competitive salaries, equity, 100% paid medical and dental, and because we've been around longer we also have stuff like great food, game rooms, a super convenient location in downtown SF and a 401K match. More importantly, we're the clear market leader, which gives us awesome momentum. As Forbes put it, "While not often thought of as a "sharing economy" company, given the massive size of the financial industry Lending Club could end up being one of the most disruptive–and largest–companies in this sector." We think one of our own employees put it best: "Many companies talk about reshaping an industry, but Lending Club is one of the few that is actually achieving this lofty goal. Growth comes in monthly leaps that just seem to keep accelerating, leading to ever-larger opportunities. There is an intriguing focus on how to get more efficient and do bigger things. Working here is definitely a chance to be a part of something special."
