Java Developer (Kafka or equivalent message broker)

You will build solutions that solve real-world problems, in a cross-functional team - small, agile and adaptable to whatever challenges come your way. Interaction with stakeholders and key business users is a way of life there.

They're pragmatic programmers - both the cutting edge and the tried and tested get a voice. All of their Java infrastructure is deployed with Docker/Kubernetes when they need to via CI (Jenkins) and a completely automated test suite.

The type of person they're looking for;

  • You've worked on large scale distributed software systems that have proven scalability and complex topologies.
  • Experience with Kafka (or equivalent message broker) and/or a streams-based platform (Samza, Storm). An advocate of test driven development or, even better, behaviour-driven development.
  • They are a financial institution and a strong commitment to quality is essential along with a willingness to talk to key stakeholders on a daily basis and be able to understand and be interested in the business objectives of the company. They deliver business value.

Quite a few recent employees have joined from large banks. If you're fed up of being a small cog in a huge machine and are keen to be much more involved in the product then this role is ideal for you. Come and help shape the future of finance.
