Job description

Senior Python Developer

About us:

FeedStock is a fintech start-up operating out of offices in Covent Garden. We are a team of bold, ambitious developers, creatives and financial services professionals who are joined by a single vision - to revolutionise enterprise productivity by leveraging AI for our daily tasks. 

By structuring unstructured communications and activity data we deliver insights to meet multiple business objectives. Be this for Next Best Actions analytics for clients, or reporting requirements for management teams, it is a completely automated and data-driven approach. 

We deliver solutions for a cross industry-wide problem created by relying on people to manually input data into incomplete systems, such as CRMs. Bad data in, bad data out. With FeedStock we don’t have a single manual input, leveraging AI to deliver the outcome, faster, better and without disruption. This is the only way to break a decades-old problem.

We are a small and senior team who operate on a flat management structure – everyone is encouraged to contribute to product design, strategy and of course, development solutions.

Working at FeedStock is fast-paced, dynamic and never dull. If you enjoy having a high level of accountability and taking full ownership of your own tasks, as well as working in a collegiate, supporting environment, please get in touch!
