London based Fintech company are looking for software product engineers to join a number of existing feature team engineers in their exciting new phase of international expansion.

You will join an international set of full stack feature teams following the LeSS agile approach, led by a financial sector experienced CTO, developing an advanced transformational banking and financial services platform.

On a day to day basis you will become a member of a fully empowered feature team where finally you will be able to truly
apply the agile principles

Java Engineer Role:
* Start from a user story and design a solution spanning micro-services (including interface definition, messaging, etc.)
* Develop, test and deploy software (development/unit/service testing) and ensure high code quality throughout
* Collaborate with the team to continuously improve the architecture
* Contribute to continuous improvement within the Scrum feature team
* Participate in the "automate everything" mentality (e.g. Continuous deployment pipelines, GIT, Jenkins, etc.)
* Prototype and spike new concepts, features, use of technology/APIs

Ideal Java Candidate Profile:

* Not afraid to try new things or to fail fast

* Lives and breathes Lean agile development; when to prototype and when to spike
* Want to do things the right way but accept that sometimes the wrong way is better
* Great sense of humour
* Understands that communication skills (verbal, written and sometimes hand gestures) :-) are often more important to
developing good software than the tin it sits on
* Some experience in a start-up and/or finance environment would be ideal but not a deal breaker
* Wants to move away from hum drum development to join world class leading software invention
