Relational databases for transactional systems and data warehouses. Oracle experience is a plus. HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Experience with YUI JavaScript library is a plus.


Experience with rule and event engines is a plus.


Desire to work in collaborative and fast paced agile environment. Experience in using Scrum process is a big plus.


Your Passion


Modern Web Frameworks: You understand why these matter, how they help, and what they don’t do. You don't just know what MVC stands for, but you can tell us why it makes sense. You’ve built sites using one or more of Express, Rails, Django, ASP.NET MVC, Grails, or AppEngine and you’ve read through the documentation on some of the others. You choose between these platforms based on their merits and not based solely on your familiarity.


Service Integration: Stitching RESTful services that speak JSON to XML spewing SOAP endpoints with a few custom binary protocols thrown in both sounds painful to you and you can explain - in an objective way - why that sort of an architecture might not be a great idea. That’s not what we do - usually - but when we do you can handle it. You can write SQL queries when you have to, but have several strategies to avoid them. HTML and CSS: Layout and styling must be second nature. While you’ll usually be working from a wireframe

or a full visual mockup, not having them won’t cause you to produce an ugly result. You’re a software engineer not a visual designer, but you can tell the difference between good design and bad design. That we target a range of browsers across both mobile and desktop platforms is pretty much a given.


You’re a troubleshooter. When something is wrong you don’t sit on your hands, you jump in to solve it. Team Player: You’ll own your own work, but all of us edit each other’s code. When your teammate does something differently than the way you would have, you see potential for you to learn. You’re willing to share your knowledge and mentor others.




Lending Club offers a competitive package including salary, equity, 401K, medical, dental, vision, health club membership.
