New tech recruits join team honcho!

New tech recruits join team honcho!

Hot on the heels of our nationwide launch, we are really excited to have recruited four new members of staff as we gear up for further growth across the UK.

Our brand new apps – the world’s first “reverse auction marketplace” for financial services – have enjoyed thousands of downloads since launching in August 2019 and, with plans to expand into new markets in the New Year, and further investment into the company planned, we are delighted to have strengthened our technology team.

As part of this growth we are pleased to welcome the arrival of three new developers (Ian Porritt, Adam Preston and Nathan Sanderson) and a tech intern (Faith Chipuriro) to our team.

Frank Speight, our Commercial Director, explains:

Some of our new members are seasoned hands with deep domain knowledge and expertise, whilst others are just starting out on their career paths.

We think they will be a great cultural fit in terms of the honcho tribe. They have a willingness to embrace a bit of chaos and uncertainty and have the passion and a commitment to the cause. They also have courage – the courage to think differently, the courage to wrestle with complexity, and the courage to do things with great speed whilst being uber-adaptable.

While London may remain as the centre of the fintech innovation universe, the gravitational pull of the North East should not be underestimated and it’s great that some of our new team have chosen to re-locate here. We believe the North East is getting stronger. There exists a mutualism, a symbiotic relationship between honcho and the region, and common desire to express our unique identities and to make a difference.”

One our new devs, Adam Preston from Birmingham, continues:

What first attracted me to honcho was the idea. I thought the idea of getting insurers to bid against each other allowed so much more scope for competition.

I’ve been going to interviews all over the country but finding a job that I was really passionate about was the reason I’ve come here. The passion, optimism and the positivity from its people I felt was immediate. It was a bit of a gamble moving somewhere completely new, but it’s paid off.

This is just the start our our latest phase of growth, with many more roles across honcho on the way, and whilst we’ve not started to advertise further roles as yet, anyone who thinks that they might be rocking the skills and attitude to help us grow and shine should check out our careers page.

If you’ve not yet downloaded the honcho app what are you waiting for?!!
