How you'll do it:

Reporting to the Lead Software Engineer, you will:

  • Turn concepts and requirements into highly available web applications and systems using technologies such as React, Node.JS, AWS, Docker, Kubernetes, Java / Kotlin and Terraform.
  • Actively participate in application design, data-flows and detailed technical design. Ensure that analysis includes the wider view of technical and business impact.
  • We release early and often to iteratively realise value.
  • Share your expertise with other squad members and be eager to learn from them as well.
  • Actively support the implementation of continuous integration to enhance deployment processes in line with SB&G delivery/release evolution plans.

How we work:

  • You will need to demonstrate good levels of skills in front end JavaScript development and be comfortable with techniques such as message queues, data stores and know what makes a good RESTful API.
  • Our engineers work closely with colleagues in all positions, so a good level of interpersonal skill is important to us.
  • We are not building monolithic enterprise apps - think cloud hosted micro-services and a lean approach with automated testing and deployments. This should be something you're passionate about too.

  • We work with the Service Desk to support our own products in and out of office hours.
  • TDD is our preferred way of working.
