Brief Overview:

My client in the FinTech industry are looking for a Performance Architect with a great understanding of Continuous Integration/Delivery. The successful Performance Architect will be working on all existing and new software products, aimed at Global Financial Institutions. A high level of collaboration is required for this role, as the Technical and Product teams will all need your advice!

A strong understanding of Performance/Testing functions would be very useful, as would the ability to liaise with both commercial and technical teams within a project. You will be writing, maintaining and owning documents around performance, for both internal and external stakeholders.

Technical experience in jmeter, JBoss/AppDynamix/JProfiler, Websphere/Weblogic or similar technologies will be useful, but Linux scripting is a must, as you will be writing active scripts for testing. A good understanding of Oracle/SQL will be useful, but the core application is Java based, so high level knowledge of Java would be beneficial.

You will own the performance of products from inception through to delivery and the ongoing life with the client, so you'll be hot on monitoring too! This requires you to go a level deeper than just testing... it's about understanding why issues arise, and providing insightful resolutions to issues.

This is a business that prides itself on their people. They build their business and products with both their team members and clients in mind, keeping everyone on the same page. You will be rewarded with a generous salary and an environment to thrive, becoming an integral part of the exciting Fintech market, working with some of the smartest and proactive people in the industry.

Required Skills/Experience:
Hands-on technical Performance Architecture experience
Unix/Linux Scripting
Experience with APM Tools: Appdynamix/jMeter/Oracle Enterprise Manager
