Uncapped · Backend Engineer

Backend Engineer

A fully remote role based in Europe

Role Overview 🚀

At Uncapped, we help ambitious founders realise their dreams. If you want to help grow an exciting company by using your expertise in microservice architectures--and deep knowledge and skill in testing your own code--this job is for you. This role is ideally suited for an Engineer who is very good at working closely with others, especially other backend developers. You are a self-igniting engineer, motivated to seek opportunities to improve both a codebase and delivery processes.

We like to work with Engineers who contribute to discussions, explore options, and include other views in making decisions. And we focus on engineering valuable business outcomes and building more data-driven systems, rather than measuring work based on completed tasks. This is an exciting time at Uncapped: a fast-paced environment with tremendous potential as we create solutions that empower entrepreneurs to focus on changing the world.

About Uncapped 👫

Founded in 2019, Uncapped is the fastest, most affordable way for growing online businesses to fund marketing and inventory. The company was born out of frustration with the limited financing options available for UK and European entrepreneurs to finance growth.

Uncapped provides business advances of between £10k and £5m without credit checks, personal guarantees, warrants, equity, or compounding interest -- and makes money by charging a low flat fee that is paid back from future sales revenue.

Uncapped has raised $120 million from investors including Lakestar, Mouro Capital, Global Founders Capital, White Star Capital, Seedcamp, and All Iron Ventures.
