Job Description

Are you a hands on Senior Back End JavaScript Engineer interested in making an impact in the engineering of an early stage pre beta start up product?

You'll be working as part of a small remote first distributed engineering team with an office in London to work on the design and engineering of a sustainable and ethical data rich fintech product.

You'll be working on this product prior to the beta version being released so if you have experience working in a very early stage start up, who are still finding their feet and where no two days are the same or if you'd like to work in this kind of environment this could be the role for you!

Part of your role will be to plan and drive technical strategy, whilst engineering high quality software using a range of open source technologies, whilst promoting best practice around testing and Agile.

You'll need to be hands on with JavaScript technologies, more weighted towards the back end (probably 70:30) such with lots of Node.js, PostgresSQL, Amazon Aurora. You'll also be experienced designing database schemas and migrating large scale databases in a CI / CD environment using TypeScript, React and Vue on the front end.

The ability to be creative and pragmatic with tests will also be beneficial as depending on what you're testing you might us Jest, Mocha or Jasmine. And with this product being at such an early stage, the technology is likely to change often and you'll be expected to make technical decisions to solve problems and build creative solutions.

There's the potential to make this role your own as the business grows but initially you'll need to be fully hands on with the tech and become the technical SME for the product.

You'll need to be UK based, eligible to work in the UK and be able to commute to Central London at short notice for planning meetings, workshops and socials. We anticipate this to be approx. 20% of the year but outside of that you can work from wherever you feel most comfortable and productive.

There's a salary up to £110,000 plus opportunities to progress in a scale up environment working flexibly and remotely unless you need to be in the office for the odd meeting. You'll also get a pension, shares options, private medical insurance, 25 holiday days, the chance to progress your career in a fast paced early stage start up plus much more.
