At October, we're reinventing financing for small businesses. We're making loans easy, smart and fast, by creating a platform directly connecting companies and lenders, offering competitive rates and returns on both sides.
October was founded in 2014. Since then, we raised more than €50m and lent €400M to more than 850 companies in France, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and Germany.
Today we’re a team of 107, spread in 5 European offices (Paris, Madrid, Milan, Amsterdam and Munich). We are proud to have been included in the NEXT40 and to contribute to the ambitions of FrenchTech and France : to create World-class Tech leaders.

Tech at October
We think reinventing financing is a massive tech challenge, that’s why we built October as a tech-centred startup.Today, the Tech, Data & Product teams (20 persons) are working on building the best financing experience ever made, very closely with the business.
That’s why every part of our stack is based on JS : we use Node.js and MongoDB on the back-end, EmberJS on the front-end, and React Native on mobile.
The platform runs on Heroku and AWS. You can take a look at our whole stack on StackShare. We believe in ownership and mentoring at October.
The way we work will deeply involve every developer from day-1.
