Oodle Team.
If you’re an inventor, a tech bod or creator, the world’s warmest customer service manager, or a math wiz kid obsessed with automation – Oodle Car Finance is the place for you. If you want to help us shape the future of car buying check out the roles below and get in touch.

Oodle Finance is an Oxford-based finance start-up trying to revolutionize car loans using technology and machine learning. Our aim is to offer a wide range of financial products to everyone and put customer back at the centre of car finance by focusing on technological innovation and operational excellence. We aim to provide market-leading customer service, including loyalty and rewards schemes, and build market-leading credit scoring models that can match more people with a fairer financial product. Oodle is a unique brand that aims to change the perception of car finance by being a responsible lender and treating customers as individuals.

Launched in early 2016, our founders and management team have extensive track records in Finance and Technology. Our CEO read Physics at Oxford prior to having a career in the City, the CRO has a MPhil in Finance from Cambridge, and our CTO has a computer science PhD from Cambridge. We are looking for exceptional candidates to join the team and share the journey in building a world-class operation. We value candidates with strong academic achievements and/or expertise in their subject, along with a desire to thrive in a fast-paced entrepreneurial culture. Successful applicants will be able to demonstrate energy & passion in all that they do, motivation, curiosity and a can-do attitude. All employees can have significant input into how the company develops, for example, how the infrastructure should be built or what our monthly priorities should be.

We now need a Data Engineer to work in the Risk team, reporting to the Head of Risk, Tom Stanley.

The role will involve working on the data infrastructure, data feeds across systems and database development. Amazon Web Services (EMR, RDS, Redshift, Lambda), Hadoop, Beam, Python, Java, TensorFlow: these are the technologies and services you would likely work with. You will be a bridge between the Systems team, responsible for the heavy lifting that ensures our software works, and the Risk team, which uses computation to analyze data and answer pressing business questions.

You will have successfully completed a degree, Masters and/or PhD in a technical field from a top university such as Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial and UCL – academic excellence is a pre-requisite. We don’t necessarily need you to have had work experience – more importantly will be your ability to be a self-starter and use your initiative. You will need to have expertise in a programming language used for data analysis such as Python or R and some knowledge of object-oriented programming, with preference for Java skills. Previous experience of Amazon Web Services (AWS) would be a plus as our data and computing infrastructure is built on top of AWS services.

Benefits:


This is not a 9 to 5 culture – we’re open to customers 9am to 8pm and weekends, and all staff are dedicated to doing an exceptional job, be it in Customer Services, Legal or Systems. But whilst we work hard, we have a fridge full of diet coke, a cupboard full of bagels & cereal, and a company lunch every Tuesday. Extramural activities include early morning fitness sessions, a Monday night football team (OodleForce) and a Tough Mudder team entering the 13-mile obstacle course in September. We have regular social events (Pub crawls..) and held OodleFest in July – a truly memorable party in a field – for our 1st birthday.

Oh, and we also offer a competitive salary, benefits, a bonus scheme and 25 days paid leave.
