Everyone should have the opportunity to own a home. But the system is broken. House prices have grown faster than incomes for decades, and thousands of people have been locked out of homeownership and the opportunities it can bring.

We’re rebuilding the homebuying process to make it simple, transparent and fair.

How? We’re building a seamless, end-to-end homebuying service to help more people find their place on the property ladder with flexible mortgages and fairer prices. We bring market-leading service, competitive rates and our own conveyancing to support everyone from first-time buyers to home movers and remortgagers – all under one roof.

The challenge is huge, and we’re looking for people who are passionate about delivering fantastic customer outcomes. Working at Gen H means proactively embracing new challenges, working comfortably with deadlines and taking initiative. We value honesty and humility, and thrive in a humble, low-ego environment.

Harnessing innovative tech and the talent of our smart, ambitious team, we’re building a fairer mortgage market. If you can help us move the dial, we want to hear from you.

Your mission

So far, we’ve built a new type of digital lender focused on helping individuals get on the housing ladder. Next, we're working on our loan sizing and credit strategy automation, improving our accounting system and developing new products.

Your role

These plans need exceptional software engineers interested in fixing a large, broken market in the following ways:

  • Working cross-functionally: We work in small, cross-functional teams with occasional ops and commercial team members. You will work closely with other teams to understand customer pain points and create solutions.
  • Product development: Our engineers work on the end to end delivery of our products. This approach includes identifying opportunities to help get our customers into homes, building solutions, rollout, learning from our progress and iterating.
  • Full-stack development: We work across the stack in many capacities, including web development, integrating partner solutions, customer application flows, backend accounting systems, tools for our operational teams, building APIs and much more.


We look for Software Engineers who:

  • Have backend/full-stack commercial experience building software products.
  • Care deeply about customers: we measure our success by how many people we bring into homes. If you're excited about solving customer problems, let us know!
  • Are great to get along with: If you're a team player, we'd love to hear from you.
  • Are open to different technologies and tasks: Our engineering team is available to diverse coding backgrounds if you're willing to play with Ruby on Rails, React and TypeScript.
  • Don’t think you tick all the boxes? That’s fine! We look for mission-driven engineers with different skills and abilities, so please apply and let us get to know you a bit better.

  • Experience using Ruby on Rails, React and TypeScript.
  • In-house experience building and iterating on customer-focused products.
