How do we create value?

The process of securing a home loan can be one of the most stressful and overwhelming experiences of a person’s life. We’re driven by an unrelenting commitment to change this.

The true beauty of the Lendi platform is that it empowers  customers to explore home loan options in their own time and in the most efficient way possible. 

Our lending panel is made up of more than 35 banks and lenders, offering over 2,500 products.

While we work closely with the lenders on our panel, but we are not working for them. Our priority is the customer and their best interest.

Customers have access to state of the art technology, and unlimited support from  Home Loan Specialists and Consultants to guide them through the process.


What does future look like?

Since launching in 2016, we’ve helped thousands of Australians settle billions in home loans. However, this is only the beginning. We believe everyone deserves a chance to turn their home-owning dream into a reality. Simple as that.

Our mission to become universally known as the home for home loans. We will do this by providing faster, smarter and more secure home loan experiences designed around the customer’s convenience and needs.

From a product perspective we intend to broaden and deepen our offering in the market which will lead to some amazing opportunities in engineering.

Engineering at Lendi

At Lendi, we aim to foster one of the best engineering cultures in Australia. Over the past year, the engineering team at Lendi has more than doubled. We employ some of the country’s best and brightest engineers ranging from graduate positions through to seasoned veterans. 

Lendi is in the process of maturing from a startup into a growth stage company; as such, we are in the process of breaking our monolith into highly scalable and available distributed microservices. This journey is well underway with about 30% of our stack now operating under this new architecture in less than one year.

At Lendi, we cultivate the sanctity of a team. Each team is responsible for Building, Shipping and Owning their code, and they have the autonomy to make decisions that influence engineering outcomes. 

We seek to be at the forefront of technology with lots of opportunities to experiment with new techniques and a robust DACI process for implementing them into production systems.

Our challenges

Engineering at Lendi moves with speed and determination. We are actively replatforming and don’t always have the answers for a problem presented on silver platter.

If you are the type of engineer who likes to jump in head first to a problem and make a real difference on the outcome then Lendi is the place for you.


Why join us?

We believe strongly in learning and development. We have dedicated budgets and time set aside for any engineer looking to upskill in a variety of technologies and soft skills. We have well laid out career development frameworks that assist our engineers in moving from junior-mid-senior and Team Lead engineering positions. We support a healthy work-life balance that allows engineers to work remotely and have flexible hours. 

We are shaping the future of home loans, while enjoying all the perks of working in tech. Think fun atmosphere, smart people, awesome office, fully-stocked kitchens, social events, extra annual leave after 3 years, opportunities to give back to the community and more! So if you are looking to make a difference and be rewarded for your efforts, this is the place for you.
