Company Updates

  • COVID-19

    Funding Circle started working immediately when #COVID19 began to effect the economy to properly pivot and best support not only our vast network of customers, but our entire staff. Funding Circle was approved by the SBA as quickly as we possibly could be so that we could begin to issue the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans. We are continuously working around the clock, accepting new applications in order to keep our communities running!

  • Small businesses mean big business: Today's new report shows that after taking finance through Funding Circle, small businesses unlocked 115,000 jobs globally in 2018, and contributed £6.5 billion to the global economy. Check out this video for the full picture:

    I have been working at Funding Circle full-time (Less than a year)


    Funding Circle is 100% the best company i have ever worked for. I honestly believe it will be difficult to find a better place of work.

    The personal development opportunities are endless as you can take advantage of the expertise in different department at the company.

    The work Environment is modern and really cool space to work, with a lot of added benefits such as free breakfast and hot drinks and PS4, Table tennis and pool space.

    I would highly recommend you to work here if you are thinking of it.


    The Basic salary in most role are minimal for the cost of living in London, but working in sales you can earn some real cash through the commission structure.

    Advice to Management

    Make the salary slightly higher to encourage more talent and increase motivation and commitment levels from staff.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Funding Circle (London, England (UK)).


    Pretty chill interview more in the form of conversation. During on-site it is more of a test of daily experience of a software engineer rather than a typical algorithms interview.
