What we do at Codat

Our mission is to make life easier for the lifeblood of economies globally; small and medium-sized businesses. Codat is a universal API for consented business financial data, powering the next generation of products and services for this historically underserved market.  

We have offices in London and New York, and a San Francisco office will be opening soon. We are a privately held company, and have recently closed our Series B funding and are funded by Index Ventures, Tiger Global, American Express, PayPal and a line-up of world-class angel investors.

We live by our values of being united as a single team, building a product that is useful to our clients and their customers alike, with a focus and urgency that makes us unstoppable.

What you will be doing

We’re looking for an experienced technical writer to join our team and assist with the writing of our documentation (mostly web-based).  You will have a specific focus on API documentation, business-facing product documentation and support-facing technical documentation.  In addition, you will work closely with our other Technical Writer on creating end-user facing documentation to guide business users through the process of setting up our software.

You will be given the freedom and responsibility to define the direction we take with our documentation to make sure it’s a world-class offering, like our API.

Our values 

No matter what we are doing, whether we’re speaking to customers, partners or to each other, we try at all times to live by our values:


We believe in delivering technology that solves real problems for real businesses. We have a real want to do the stuff that isn't always sexy but makes a difference.


We believe that the people in the best teams push and enable each other to excel. We have each other’s back - when things go wrong, there isn't blame, we work together to fix it. We embrace differences of opinion to end up with an even better outcome - not letting our egos win.


We believe that constant drive towards a single, clearly stated goal is the primary method of building great things. We are biased towards action - our decisions are informed and then we act. There is no such thing as a hard problem - it is how we outperform others.
