This is an amazing opportunity!

If you're looking to make a mark in your career and take ownership in a highly driven team - this is the opportunity for you. There are huge ambitions for growth and will move at a fast pace, and you'll work autonomously with the close support of start-up founders and senior managers who have done this before.

A start up already award winning FinTech company seek an experienced lead Developer/Software Engineer with strong skills within JavaScript (and preferably Typescript), being well versed in Node.js and React. Also an in-depth knowledge of AWS is an advantage - please note this role is both Front and Back End, but a focus on Back End is a priority and having excellent coding practices, such as strong adherence to SOLID principles, automated testing, Test Driven Development is ideal.

They seek candidates with experience of working in highly functional Agile teams who are used to applying these coding practices on a daily basis. For a lead engineer, they would expect strong architecture and infrastructure skills in addition, but they are open to motivated senior engineers who themselves are looking to grow in these areas.

A brief overview of the Lead JavaScript Developer - TypeScript/React/AWS/Node.js Software Engineer position:

  • As a Lead Engineer, you will build and maintain scalable web applications and services; monitor, test, and continuously optimise our systems; and deliver testable, maintainable, and high-quality code.
  • You'll work closely with fellow tech leaders to evolve and enhance their engineering practices, and help to coach members of the wider engineering team with a focus on our build-test-release cycle to ensure seamless continuous delivery of new product features.
  • This is an opportunity to contribute to building a business and platform at the ground floor and to make technical decisions. So if you have relentless ambition, an abundance of passion, and supreme technical skills, they'd love to chat with you.
  • You'll have at least several years' experience in similar roles, ideally working with top-tier tech companies or product driven start-ups. Experience with consumer facing or regulated businesses strongly preferred.

What will you do in the Lead JavaScript Developer - TypeScript/React/AWS/Node.js Software Engineer position:

  • Take broad and ambiguous problems and turn them into delightful products.
    Lead in the design and development of new, scalable features spanning both the Front End and Back End.
  • Take a technical coaching role to help the wider engineering team learn and develop established Agile practices.
  • Build reusable components/services for future use.
  • Investigate, resolve and mitigate service-impacting events as part of operations on-call rotation.
  • Partner with product, engineering, and design to oversee the development of a product from problem definition, conception to launch (and then some).

Technical stack for the Lead JavaScript Developer - TypeScript/React/AWS/Node.js Software Engineer position:

  • You are highly proficient in JavaScript (and preferably Typescript), being well versed in Nodes and React.
  • You are experienced in designing, building and integrating with RESTful APIs.
  • You care about software architecture across the Front End and Back End, and the APIs that glue them together.
  • You have extensive knowledge of Git and Continuous Integration.
  • You are an advocate for Test Driven Development.
  • You have an in-depth knowledge of AWS - in particular, ECS, S3, CloudFront, Lambda, CloudWatch, Cognito and CodePipeline.
  • You are proficient with Terraform or other comparable infrastructure-as-code tools.
  • You understand that good engineering is not about trends but is built on top of principles and tradeoffs.
  • You have empathy for customer needs, but can also consider technical constraints and business goals.
  • You value collaboration and are at your best when you're part of a team.
  • You are flexible; we're a young startup and you'll be building lots of fun things, proof of concepts, MVPs, as well as core regulated systems.
