The opportunity - Overview

As a Software Engineer, you'll be hands-on in the delivery of new applications for a range of products in our digital client experience platform, adhering to coding standards, and prioritising software quality.

We are entirely in the cloud, with a greenfield tech stack; taking advantage of powerful commoditised offerings where we can, and building bespoke cloud-native solutions when they can differentiate us from our competition.

You'll have worked on the full-stack of modern, scalable and resilient software projects, cloud hosted, ideally Internet-facing, and will have a sound understanding of what "good" looks like in an engineering team.

We believe in an open and collaborative working environment, and we want you to draw upon your experience to establish this culture within engineering, whilst ensuring we don't skip over our regulatory obligations around process controls.

What we're looking for

  • You have 3 - 5 years of experience in full-stack software engineering, in which you demonstrated an eagerness to expand your set of skills and learn new technologies.
  • You have an interest in cloud-first and serverless design patterns, and an appreciation of how PaaS offerings can be composed into solution design.
  • You understand what it takes to design and develop APIs.
  • You are familiar with distributed version control systems like Git, and can describe the branching strategies you have used on previous and current projects.
  • You can give examples of what you consider to be good practices in software engineering, and how you have tried to implement those practices in previous roles.
  • You appreciate both the importance of development and testing for "non-functional" requirements and, hopefully, why that phrase is in inverted commas!
  • You are happy working in an Agile delivery environment, interacting directly with other team members and stakeholders on a daily basis.
  • You treat operational and monitoring considerations as first class concerns.

Your qualities

  • Humble: you acknowledge your strengths, and also your weaknesses; you work for more than your own personal glory.
  • Curious: you follow the latest technology developments, and explore ways they can be adopted.
  • Creative: you think beyond the obvious.
  • Thorough: you consider the full-picture, and understand that details can matter
  • Calm: you're positive under pressure and happy to take the lead in challenging times.
