A medium-sized fintech specialising in consumer lending, I joined at an important period of growth for Lendable as they were expanding their engineering division to support the release of new products to diversify their current offering. The focus of my role is the existing loans platform. • Maintain, extend and refactor elements of the existing monolithic loans platform that is built on PHP 7.4 and Symfony 4.4. This includes consumption and exposure of high-traffic and high availability APIs for both internal and external use, such as our React front-end, interacting with our credit team's prediction models, or third parties for quoting. • Thorough testing at functional, unit and integration level with PHPUnit, Behat and Wiremock. • Ensure code quality, readability and extensibility is kept as high as possible by following SOLID principles and PSR standards, but also using an array of tools such as PHPStan for static analysis, PHPMD for mess detection and CS Fixer for code style. • Other key technologies used, but not limited to: React.js, Microservices, DDD, TDD, Agile development, MySQL, AWS [SQS], Git, Jenkins, Docker
