Would you enjoy building bespoke cloud-native solutions that can differentiate us from our competition and help shape the future of Financial Planning?
Could you help drive forward our agenda of becoming a technology driven organisation?
The Role
The newly formed SPW Technology & Engineering function is responsible for building the technology platform to support our new venture. You will be hands-on in the delivery of the new applications for our digital transformation programme. We are entirely in the cloud, with a greenfield tech stack; taking advantage of powerful commoditised offerings where we can.
We aim to provide clients with clarity and transparency in everything we do. This includes using technology to explain how long-term financial planning can add value to people's lives, to give people access to information about their financial wellbeing and to enable clients to communicate with their adviser when it's convenient for them.
What you'll be doing


Developing in some or all of our core technical stack including TypeScript, Node.js, React, Kubernetes and AWS.


Working with UX designers using tools like inVision, Sketch and Storybook and translating their vision into code.


Responding positively to feedback from both stakeholders and customers (ideally with experience of customer driven product evolution and A/B testing).


Articulating what good looks like in software engineering and helping teams achieve it.


Identifying opportunities for improvement, in technology, tooling, quality control and process.


Your qualifications & experience


You have a strong background in full-stack software engineering, in which you demonstrated an eagerness to expand your set of skills and learn new technologies.


You understand what it takes to design and develop APIs.




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 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 are happy working in an Agile delivery environment, interacting directly with other team members and stakeholders on a daily basis.


You appreciate both the importance of development and testing for "non-functional" requirements and, hopefully, why that phrase is in inverted commas!




You treat operational and monitoring considerations as first class concerns.
