Job Description


Core Java Developers, Guildford, £45-75k, cutting edge greenfield development, back end or full stack.

Core Java Developers (FinTech Scale-up)
Guildford, Surrey
£45000 - £70000

Please note my client cannot offer VISA sponsorship for this position.

Your new company
I'm engaged on a project to recruit several Java Developers to join a scale-up FinTech enterprise in Guildford. It's a unique opportunity working for a technology first organisation with a commitment to software best practice that have experienced 100% compound growth in each of the last 3 years. You'll be working from their head office location which is easily commutable from most parts of Hampshire/Surrey, though there is opportunity to take office space in The Shard if you wish.

These are hands-on positions, requiring deep Java knowledge and a hunger for new technologies. The client is more than happy to hire those with a preference for working full stack (Angular front end) if you wish.

Your new role
Project wise things are very exciting. You'll be responsible for working on core greenfield developments with only around 20% BAU work to attack. There are a number of larger clients that have been recently signed and with that comes bespoke customisation requests. On top of this there is a move from B2B products to a consumer driven product which will be rolled out in 2019 and will take them to another level again.

You'll be working in a small but highly talented team so will be expected to touch a few different areas of the business. This is not a corporate, pigeon-holed place to work, the company champions open collaboration and encourages bringing new technology suggestions to the table, so providing it's secure for FinTech adoption, they are ready to listen.

The company are about to undergo a sustained period of growth and need technical minds that are ready to hit the ground running early on.

What you'll need to succeed
We need someone who lives and breathes Core backend Java and MySQL / MongoDB on the database layer. You should subscribe to clean coding practices and follow SOLID / TDD / BDD. The team are not precious about the supporting technologies and will use the right tool for the job. That being said at the top end of the scale it will be expected you have led projects using Java 8 in a Spring/Hibernate environment. Infrastructure is managed in house under one roof.

The company runs Agile on 2 weekly releases but are not bound by the manifesto and will openly investigate practices and tech which work for them. Knowledge of mobile development, (cross platform or native) will serve you well, as will Angular (up to version 7), payments or financial services experience

What you'll get in return
The company offers great flexibility across the board and there is no micromanagement here. We want someone invested in the cause and the business who is interested in seeing their efforts have a genuine effect on the organisation. On top of this the working conditions are pleasant and they champion promotion from within.
