    Pros

    - Rapidly growing company resulting in lots of opportunities - Interesting work (largely writing new code, not maintaining old legacy systems) - Best codebase I've ever seen (seriously, never seen such amazing code in a company) - Highest technical standard of any company I've worked in (many banks, hedge fund and games companies previously) - Relaxed work environment, feels like a start-up - Working with a partner organisation to coach school & college students - Working with partner organisations to work with disadvantaged students - Lots of social events

    Cons

    - There can be some long hours involved (but no more so than other finance companies)
