Lead Java Engineer
Up to £120K + Bonus (30%, uncapped)

We are looking for a Lead Java Engineer to help work on a leading foreign exchange platform processing over 5 billion daily trade messages a day for a heavily backed FinTech Start-up leading the industry for 4 years. This highly sophisticated low latency, multithreaded Java system processes high-volume data in real time. As a Lead Java Engineer, you will relish managing and building an entirely greenfield, globally distributed system scaled onto AWS. No need for FX/ Finance experience, just someone who shares our values in clean well thought out engineering.

As the Lead Java Engineer, you will:

  • Use Docker/Kubernetes container tools deploying complex threaded Java microservices deployed in AWS.
  • Minimise discrepancies practicing with peers (and junior Engineers beneath you) in paired programming, TDD/ BDD and continuous integration.
  • Solve multithreaded Java challenges incorporating any wider programming tools available to you including Python (Data projects), Kotlin (Android projects), Rust and C++.

Situated minutes from Holborn, our business is passionate in the personal development of our Lead Java Engineer, a unique budget is allocated for each employee to spend on self-improvement and growth. Additional perks for our Lead Java Engineer include a generous 28 days annual leave, an uncapped cash bonus (30% average uncapped), free daily breakfast/ lunch and regular social activities.

By the end of the year the company will hit the £1bn valuation mark, remarkable for an organisation just 4 years old, with its best months of trading happening right now during this pandemic. The team will also offer part remote working following Covid, about 3 days a week preferably.

Interview stage: call with CTO, final video call with Engineers.
