Software Engineer / Senior Software Engineer | Node.JS / React.JS | Up to 70k + 10% Bonus | 100% Home Based
You’re a passionate software engineer at the top of your game. But you know you’re destined for more. You are itching for the opportunity to work with a team of like-minded engineers who are all striving towards the same goal – to create something that is going to actually make things easier for their customers….
This company started a couple of years ago when their 2 founders were trying to solve a very common problem. Practically everything is automated nowadays, and they knew that if they could create a cloud-based API driven product to solve this very specific problem, then they would have significantly advanced this antiquated area of consumer finance for the first time in about 50 years.
Fast forward 3 years and they have agile, delivery focussed teams of software, platform, QA & data engineers based all over the country, financial backing from some of the biggest names in the UK and in Silicon Valley, and one incredibly successful product that solves the original problem by empowering the customer to make better decisions. They have partnered with more than 40 industry leading brands including established banks, smaller niche providers and challenger banks, and have a whole host of new innovative products & ideas that they are working on behind the scenes.
Believe it or not, this is just the start. A lot of companies say they are “disrupting their industry” nowadays (insert eye roll here) but this is a team who are experiencing rapid growth due to the fact there is NOTHING else like them out there. Nothing. They aren’t just disrupting this area of consumer finance; they’re creating a whole new one.
And I haven’t even told you the best part yet: This team care.
Every single person hired into this company care about doing things right, the first time. They believe in writing good quality, clean code. In releasing early, and often. In DevOps being a mindset for everyone to adopt, not a job. In working together as a team, with each individual playing to their strengths to get the best outcome. They believe in best practice, and in challenging one another. Because that’s how you create great software. There’s no “my way of the highway” here, no egos. Just true collaboration to get the best outcome for the customer.
When they created their tech stack the team sat down & said “what’s going to work well, but also be fun & stand the test of time” – so from a tech perspective it’s Node. Python. Go. MongoDB. Microservice System Architecture (proper microservices too, not just another disguised monolith!) There’s also plenty of RESTful programming using React & Express. And they’re a cloud-first environment, so it’s all GCP, Kubernetes, Docker & CI/CD driven by CircleCI.
I hope by now you’re getting the impression that this is an engineering team you want to be a part of, so you should know that they operate a model where you work 100% at home, 100% of the time. Why? Because what they’re doing is super-exciting and they want it to be accessible for anyone in the UK….and ultimately, they trust their staff. If you want to do the school run, do it. If you want to start at 5AM and finish at 1PM, do it. As long as you attend all the team meetings and the work gets done, you can sit there in fancy dress singing Shirley Bassey tunes at the top of your voice whilst you work for all they care – If the work is getting done on time & to a high standard, it works for them.
In addition to all of this great stuff there are tons of other perks too. Things like allocated “outside time” when the sun is up to encourage you to get away from your desk & keep your mental health in check, time allocated each month to developing new ideas & exploring new tech, hackathons, tech conferences, your own personal training & development budget…the list goes on.
Due to their success they are now looking for several talented engineers to join the team at either Sofware Engineer or Senior Software Engineer level, so if you want to know more (and believe it or not, yes, there IS more) then get in touch! If you've got an up-to-date CV, just hit apply. If you don't, that's not an issue - just give me a call and I'll answer any questions you have. My number is on my LinkedIn profile (Rachel Watson).
Not to be melodramatic, but opportunities like this don’t come along every day. Don’t miss out & wonder “what if” for the rest of your life…
