Job Description

We currently have an opportunity for two passionate and experienced Lead Node.js contractors in a high profile project for one of the most innovative Fintech companies in the personal and business foreign exchange industry. Joining a 30 person technology team in London (there is also a 10 person team up North) you will be helping them to modernize the entire software platform, process and culture across the business. The existing platforms have been growing organically alongside the business over the last ten years and are now being used by over 7000 customers globally and are in need of cutting edge changes. You’ll help grow and shape one of the engineering teams, whilst providing inspiring technical leadership to the engineers who built the foundations of the success to date. The environment offers the best of both worlds - a high energy startup culture with a test and learn mentality, but with the stability and opportunity for growth that comes from being a highly profitable company with a turnover of more than £1billion!

This opportunity would suit a candidate who enjoys taking an active role in planning, assisting QA's and product owners and has the ability to thrive under pressure and find creative solutions to complex technical problems. You will also be communicative and social, able to discuss your work with people of varying levels of technical understanding and get excited by the buzz of delivering products that customers love using. It is also essential to have commercial experience with most of the technologies/tools/practices below (although they are a starting point, you will be empowered to recommend changes):

  • Building optimised, scalable microservices using Node.js
  • Typescript
  • CI tools, e.g. CircleCI
  • AWS
  • Agile practices
  • Software engineering practices like BDD, TDD, Pair Programming etc.
  • Learning from and passing knowledge to like-minded and talented colleagues

It would also be great, but not essential, if you have some experience with:

  • React/Redux
  • GIT workflow
  • Leading teams (either as a team lead, or informally)
  • Interviewing and onboarding new team members

What is on offer:

  • A competitive salary, benchmarked against a peer group of the most innovative fintech companies in London
  • 25 days holiday per year + your birthday off!
  • Tons of opportunities for progression and development
  • Company laptop & tech equipment of your choice
  • Great location next to the Thames (Cannon Street/Bank)
  • Free onsite Nuffield Health gym & pool
  • A flexible workplace - we like to say yes!
  • Opportunity to manage your own team.
