FundApps is a SaaS scaleup that helps investment managers monitor and comply with worldwide regulations. We were one of the world's first "RegTechs" and we're shaking up an entire industry. Our clients love what we do and this has led to phenomenal consistent revenue growth.

Our first area of focus was to help managers with Shareholding Disclosure, a complex regulatory problem without a fit-for-purpose solution in the market. Since that time, our service has become the undisputed market leader for the management of Shareholding Disclosure. We have also added new ground-breaking services - Sensitive Industries and Position Limits - and in 2020, introduced Rapportr to make reporting simple for our clients.

Everyday, our service monitors a collective US$14 trillion in assets under management on behalf of clients ranging from US$50 million Hedge Funds to the largest Sovereign Wealth Fund in the world.

We’re a growing team of 100 FundAppers and over 30 nationalities at last count. We have offices in London, New York and Singapore and remote employees spread across the globe. In 2018, we became a Certified B Corporation and in 2019 were recognised as a B Corp 'Best for the World' Honoree - highlighting our commitment to doing good by our people, the environment and the community.

We ❤️ clean, simple code.

We're a team of smart, friendly people who collaborate closely and take pride in delivering amazing software and providing extraordinary customer support. You’ll help shape what we work on and how we do it. You won’t be micro-managed or stuck in a rut. We work hard on challenging problems and have a good time doing it.

We believe focusing on automation, testing and code quality enables us to move faster than our competitors whilst delivering better software. Our team values are professionalism, sustainability, and psychological safety; we hold each other to high standards, give each other considered, caring feedback, work smart and look out for each other.

What we're looking for

We're looking for motivated, intelligent individuals to join our close-knit engineering team. We are agile and pride ourselves in getting our engineers up and running fast.

In our application you’ll be asked to specify the length of internship you'd prefer (3 months or 6 months). If you have the willingness to learn and be an awesome teammate, we’d love to hear from you!

At FundApps you'll see the inner workings of a fast-growing, bootstrapped scale-up. You will have as much support and responsibilities as anyone else in the team, working on real-life problems. You’ll be an engineer first and foremost but if you want to expand your skillset beyond programming we’ll give you opportunities to get involved.
