Life at Lendi profile: Our Head of Engineering, Joshua McKenzie, on culture and growth

Lendi’s culture

I started my Lendi journey in December 2018, and the first thing that hit me whilst going through the onboarding process is how passionate and dedicated the Lendi engineering team are. Our engineering teams are super friendly and support a rich culture. Right now, I manage a team of 9 engineering team leads who each manage small teams of their own.

We’re growing

In just six months, our engineering team has grown from 26 engineers to 47 engineers. And, we’re still growing!

When hiring new engineers, apart from the required skills for the role, I always look for a great attitude and a strong aptitude. A great attitude ensures that all of the engineers here at Lendi are passionate about what they're working on, and a great aptitude means that each engineer can easily continue to learn and develop new skills and techniques.

Our teams

Each of our teams are either located in the Sydney office or working remotely close by. Having easy access to other business units and other engineers goes a long way to creating a tight-knit social culture and the ability to solve problems quickly. It allows us to quickly discuss and resolve issues and ultimately deliver results for the business and our customers.

Lendi is an exciting place to spend each day and I look forward to seeing what comes next!
