Description

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 are 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.

The Role

The LendingClub UI engineering team is looking for a passionate UI Architect who understands 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 and using modern open source libraries (including but not limited to NodeJS, npm, Webpack, Sass, React, Redux, React Native, etc). We are looking for someone who also supports this movement and wants to be part of our mission to transform the banking system. We have a rare 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 LendingClub platform.

You Are

  • 8+ years building web experiences with a focus on UI/Front-end expert understanding of JavaScript architectures and building advanced web experiences
  • You have experience with JavaScript testing frameworks (Jasmine, Mocha) and HTML templating (React, Mustache, Handlebars, etc.)
  • You've used CSS Preprocessor such as Sass or LESS. Experience with Node, NPM, Gulp, Grunt, Backbone, Bootstrap, Browserify, Webpack
  • You have expert knowledge of common engineering concepts (algorithms, design patterns and modularization)
  • You bring expertise with cross-browser, cross-platform and design constraints on the web. Working with REST API web services

Bonus Points

  • You used React-Redux or other similar modern frameworks
  • You understand JavaScript isn't just for building UI and you're not afraid to embrace it
  • You believe you were a designer in a past life, but now you would rather collaborate with them

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 healthy 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 believe 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 visionary 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."

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
