Software Engineers - FinTech London - Multiple Dev Languages/Fullstack
Posted on Feb 12, 2020 by GL Global
A unique FinTech firm are looking to immediately grow and scale their engineering talent as part of a major expansion plan for 2020. They have incredible backing and market opportunity and have set out to create a truly engineer-first company culture from the ground up.
To expand their engineering team they are looking to hire several skilled and inquisitive engineers from a range of development backgrounds. They would like to see some breadth in your technical coverage but for them your talent, mind, aptitude and attitude are the most important - not any one particular language or skill. Also, they are happy to speak to those with a bias towards any part of the stack - so if you are predominantly a Back End engineer, Front End engineer or a fullstack engineer - it is all good for them! However, they will need to see from you an open mind and the drive and desire to learn and balance out your skill set; but this seems like a good win-win!
We are a fan of strong fundamentals and aptitudes - at each layer of each problem there will be freedom for the team to select and develop in whichever language or service would be best placed to deliver against the needs of the brief or product. This will allow you and the those around you to work on modern, evolving technology stacks to attack problems of scale, complexity or even to attempt solutions not yet thought of.
Example technologies currently in play include:
- serverless, stateless and microservices architectures
- AWS, GCP, Azure platforms
- Go/Golang, Python, Java, C# - but not limited to, we have people from all development backgrounds
- other technologies always under review based on use case and suitability - feel free to debate or discuss different design choices and their merits as this kind of internal technical discovery is a core value to uphold
Given the reach and scale of our parent firm there will be a constant supply of small and large technical problems or proofs of concept to go after which will keep you stimulated and challenged. The team taking shape are all ambitious, inquisitive and already starting to see the potential gains to be made in an environment that truly looks to remove all blockers for tech and engineering. They want to excel and have fun doing it!
Excellent packages are on offer with a very interesting bonus component and some stand out benefits designed to excite and motivate. But the learning, cross training and new skill adoption you can gain here is exceptional.
If you are adventurous, skilled and like to work with creativity and speed, please do apply for more information as you won't be disappointed!
