Java Developer – £85,000 – London

Based in London and working in a feature team, you’ll be helping us improve our platform moving towards a microservice architecture, focusing in continuous delivery, scalability and system resilience. We have users sending money from 50 countries to over 150 countries – and we’re expanding. The work is varied, from creating new products and features to improving existing functionality, we strive to build a better customer experience and a better codebase. This is real growth at pace.

 

We use a modern stack – Docker, Kubernetes, AWS, Microservices – and modern tools – CI, TDD, Agile – to get the job done.

 

Responsibilities

 

  • Writing great code. We understand code is read more than it’s written, better off tested and maintainability is a must.
  • Helping shape what we build. You’ll be working closely with product owners, designers and other engineers to design and refine our work. We work as a team and your input is key.
  • Owning delivery. We’re obsessed with shipping value; you’ll own work beyond just a pull request. You’ll care about bugs, scalability, uptime and other non-functional requirements.
  • Growing together. You’ll review others’ work and happily seek feedback on yours to ensure we build a better codebase and sharpen each other’s skills.

  • Happy in the Clouds. Our Cloud Native platform is hosted in AWS and Azure. You’ll be comfortable working with a system that supports users from around the world, at scale.
  • Right technology for the job. Your happy to learn and work alongside different stacks; .NET is your colleague not your competition.
  • Well-principled. Especially in the craft of Software Engineering – you will understand deeply: modularity, testability, extensibility, scalability and other –ilities.
  • Bias for action. You see a problem, you fix a problem. You get buy in for your solutions and keep tickets moving. We’re always looking for ways to ship at pace.
  • Growth mindset. A willingness to use your skills and experience to mentor less-experienced engineers. A desire to learn from others and make yourself better every day.
