Job Description

Full Stack / Backend Engineer – Node.js / React – Up to £65,000

The Role

I am working alongside a startup based in London who are looking to add an experienced engineer to their team. They are setup within the Fintech industry – and you will be working on their core platform, as well as helping to build out a new platform from scratch.

The company utilise a full stack JavaScript stack (React & Node) but are looking for someone who is quite backend heavy. This is because they are building out a brand new product to integrate into their current commodities platform to allow them to operate with B2C markets as well as the B2B ones, which they are already very well established in.

Ideally you will have good commercial experience with Node.js & are able to offer advice on their microservice architecture. Experience with React would be ideal, although not essential as this role is a 70/30 backend split.


Having been founded over four years ago, the business have grown steadily & are now in the process of growing out their engineering / product team to work on their new B2C product. They are a Fintech with specialist knowledge within the commodities sector. They partner with some of the World’s largest fintech / finance businesses such as Deutsche Bank & are now looking to revolutionise their business with their new B2C functions.

The product team currently consists of nine – five engineers, a DevOps Engineer, Product Designer & two Product Managers.  

The business are currently all working remotely & would like to continue this to some extent in the future. Their plan is to have staff to return to the office for 2-3 days a week in the long term.


You must have experience in some of these skills to be considered for the role:


  • Node.js
  • Experience of building out APIs
  • Modern JS framework – ideally React
  • SQL / MongoDB


  • Microservice Architecture experience
  • Docker / Kubernetes
  • STEM degree or equivalent


As well of a salary of up to £65,000, this company offers great benefits. They include 28 days holiday, staff bonus (calculated on both personal & company performance), share options & flexible working hours.

Please send a copy of your most up to date CV to to be considered.
