Job description

We are continuing to scale at pace and are looking for senior backend-specialist engineers with a broad skillset to join us on our journey. Our industry-leading, high-automation, fintech platform enables ourselves and our partners to offer personal loans all the way from customers searching for a loan, through to completing the low-friction application, accepting the loan agreement, and post-payment self-service loan management. Including loan pricing and automated loan decision making algorithms.

Our target architecture for new development is a cloud-native, functional, microservice architecture based around Kotlin and http4k on the backend and React/Typescript on the frontend. Our teams are autonomous, cross-functional, full-stack, full-cycle, end to end delivery squads of 5-10 software engineers alongside product management, design, and analytics. Our focus on teamwork and quality, with a product-minded and test-driven approach, enables us to go far together. We measure ourselves on value delivered and operational excellence, not the number of features implemented.

Key Responsibilities

  • Lead the technical design and development of new product features and platform capabilities in collaboration with product managers and engineers, following an acceptance test-driven development / BDD approach
  • Drive improvements to our engineering practices
  • Mentor, coach, and support junior engineers

Skills & Requirements

  • Excellent experience building software in a JVM or a similar language such as Java, Kotlin, or C# using a Test Driven Development (TDD) approach.

  • Product and customer-centric mindset, outcome-focused.

  • Ability to apply object-oriented and functional design principles and write clean, well-structured code.

  • Knowledge of different database and state persistence options including RDBMSs and caches.

  • Understanding of what makes a well-designed cloud-native microservice, including frameworks used and service responsibilities.

  • Experience building scalable, performant, and reliable distributed systems using a microservices-based architecture.

  • Experience applying agile and lean principles.

  • Ability to learn new skills to work across the entirety of our tech stack.

The following skills would be advantageous

  • Experience migrating from a monolithic architecture to microservices
  • Experience working with React/Angular/Vue or Node.js applications
  • Experience defining Service Level Objectives and keeping within error budget

What do we offer?

  • A friendly and vibrant working culture and people who are always keen to help each other
  • A place for you to grow and develop
  • Generous pension scheme, life and health insurance and a range of other employee benefits
  • Great opportunity to work with one of the rising stars in FinTech
  • Training/Conference budget
  • Life Insurance
  • Income Protection Insurance
  • Private Health Insurance
  • Hybrid office policy
  • Monthly Socials and monthly breakfast
