Nutmeg is Europe's leading Digital Wealth Manager, but we don't want to stop there! We're in the middle of building a new scalable platform to help us achieve our mission of being the most trusted Digital Wealth Manager in the world.
We are now looking for a Front End focused Technical Architect to own the direction of the architecture for all our customer facing ‘touch-points' and our mobile apps, by implementing best practice, and working day to day with our Front-End and Mobile Tech teams
Our Engineering Department, led by our CTPO Matt Gatrell, is building out our new digital platform. The Team consists of over 70 Engineers shared across different domain teams. Each engineer has access to a clearly defined Engineering progression ladder to allow them to plan out what they need to do to progress in their chosen career path.
We are migrating our front-end away from Ruby to React, building a microservice environment using Java 8/11, and moving from Mesos/Marathon to Kubernetes. We also have an iOS app built in Swift 4, and an Android app built in Kotlin. We are building an in-house bespoke UI Design System (cross platform), for our FE clients. We are building new Restful API's, refactoring legacy code, and enabling our developers to create clear and clean pragmatic code. We've introduced Kafka, run our systems on AWS, and have built a DevOps team to provide our Engineers with the tools needed to observe their domain. We have built a strong engineering foundation for knowledge sharing with several skill shares, guilds, and open discussions running every month.
