Job Description

For great engineers we offer generous rewards and a clear career progression. This is a fast-paced and dynamic team where individual projects are short and varied - production systems are updated on a daily basis. Dedicated operations and support teams allow you to concentrate on getting the job done.


As part of a small scrum agile team you will develop, test and deliver changes to our transaction engines, reporting tools and supporting systems.

You have excellent object-oriented software engineering skills – framework knowledge is great, but strength in the fundamentals is essential.

You work effectively under your own direction for the whole software life-cycle - but you might not get much chance to put your headphones in, since we produce our best working closely with the rest of the team.

What does success look like?

•             A five nines platform that handles hundreds of transactions every second of every day

•             Extending our system to touch more transactions never takes as long as expected

•             The product team can’t stop smiling

•             You aren’t here after hours


Key Responsibilities

•             Develop and maintain software applications to a high standard

•             Comprehensively test software through automated test frameworks

•             In the context of our agile methodology, agree and meet delivery commitments


•             Must have: Java 8 / Perl / Spring / Mockito / Cucumber

•             RESTful web services, JSON / JMX remoting

•             Postgres / Elastic

•             Configuration management (Puppet) and a Linux OS (RHEL)

•             Git, GitLab / GitHub and continuous integration (Jenkins)

All About You

•            Proven experience of Java development and testing, ideally in the context of web services

•            Experience working in an Agile environment, with continuous integration and collective code ownership an advantage

•            Familiarity with high availability distributed systems, SOA and RESTful messaging an advantage

•            You may have a Computer Science or related degree, or be qualified by experience

•            Demonstrable commitment to professional development and open to new languages
