Job Description

Senior / Lead Engineer – Node / React – Fintech - £75,000 - £95,000

I’ve just partnered up with a truly exciting startup business who are building out a niche product to help revolutionise the world of international payments! They’re looking for an experienced engineer to join their team – full details below:

What will I be working on?

You will be joining a young product team who are focused on building out this feature driven platform with customer experience always at the forefront of their mind. The product is already up & running with a number of customers onboard. However, it is still at a very early point in its inception & the first six months of your time here will be spent building out complex microservices in Node.js to improve the overall infrastructure, as well as building out frontend features to streamline the customer onboarding process.

What experience do I need?

Overall this position is slightly weighted towards server-side development, due to the responsibilities you’ll have in improving their microservice architecture & API builds etc. Having said that, it would be ideal if you had frontend experience (they use React) so that you are able to hit the ground running when building the customer facing features. They use TypeScript throughout too & everything is hosted on GCP – so experience in both of these areas is a plus.

You’ll be working as part of a close knit team, so it’s important that you are the type of character that is able to take others opinions onboard and use this to improve your own knowledge base as well as being comfortable backing your own opinions when you feel it’s the right thing to do.

Can you tell me about the company?

The business are still very much in their growth phase & have been running for around 18 months now. They have a very healthy amount of funding and have runway for the next two years already!

Their platform is an all in one solution for start-ups & SME’s whose income relies on international payments. The technical founders have extensive experience building out payment / trading platforms and spotted a gap in the market where they realised that all of these solutions were very corporate. They are aiming to simplify this & make it accessible to everyone.

The company are operating remotely for now but do have an office space in London. In an ideal world, they would like you to be in the office semi-regularly in a few months’ time but if you want to work remotely from elsewhere in the UK, they are certainly open to it.

The tech stack

This is what the company use – you don’t need to be an expert in all of these!

  • Node.js
  • TypeScript
  • React
  • GCP
  • Firebase

The package

On top of a base salary ranging between £75,000 - £95,000, you will get access to a great benefits package. This includes:

  • 25 days holiday + bank holidays
  • Personal training & development budget
  • Flexible working opportunities
  • Stock options
