This project is just the beginning, the company have acquired a banking licence in order to bring a groundbreaking new product to market. Simultaneously, they are re-platforming the core platform onto a modern application stack (PostgreSQL, Express, React, Node.js) and expanding the engineering capabilities rapidly, and this role is not only critical to their success but offers the ability to cross-skill into Node.js if you want to!
