The project

This project is about a new startup looking for a talented trendy Developer/software engineer. If you are looking for new challenges and an exciting role, this is for you. If you are technology savvy, keep yourself updated with latest programming languages, databases (especially NoSQL databases), development tools, then this is probably what will excite you.

The idea - and the personality required

The idea is at a very initial stage. I have been working in the FinTech domain for over 12 years and want to bring in innovation in one of the financial sectors. Talking about innovation, this will not just bring in small change; but has the potential to integrate, link and disrupt an existing industry in a big way. The overall idea is quite big; and can revolutionise if the right steps are taken. Loads of ideas; but need a framework/MVP to kick off. I am expecting someone with a passion to start something new/big; challenge and be challenged at all stages. Someone who is not looking for just a normal 9-5 job; but who has genuine passion for technology, programming with latest technologies, building something new and creative.

As you may have understood that there is not a standard market salary at this stage. We will obviously discuss equity. I will be funding all expenses which will be required to get this moving, building and running. I am willing to pay an amount as stipend as well. The idea is obviously to create a prototype/working business model before going for any investment. Ideally, would like to kickstart business through client revenues (if possible) before any investments.

About me:

¥ 17+ years in the digital & technology domain (includes 12+ years in the FinTech sector)
• International experiences in business and technology especially in the finance domain
• Headed development & technology teams, product management, sales & business development globally
• Experiences in a previous startup
• Based out of Milton Keynes.

About yourself – and technical skills

You will have strong technical skills and be well versed and use latest technologies including… Golang, Cassandra / other No SQL DBs, CI/CD. You would probably love open source technologies. I am not necessarily looking only for an already seasoned programmer/developer; but am more than happy for students or recent graduates to apply as well if you think you are tech savvy and love programming and building stuffs (including R & D) using latest technologies.

- Micro services Architecture
- Go-lang (for Server Side Web development)
- NoSQL databases (ideally Cassandra. Scylla DB or HBASE will also do)
- RDBMS (Ideally MySQL; or PostgreSQL)
- API, REST and web services (JSON, XML)
- SaaS (Multi Tenant)
- High Availability, distributed systems
- Open source technologies (including Linux/Unix skills)
- MVC / MVVM Architecture / Frameworks

- Full Stack developer
- Front end frameworks (Vue.JS, HTML5, CSS3, LESS)
- Responsive Sites (Bootstrap, Knockout, JQuery)
- Progressive Web Apps
- Mobile (iOS, Android) development
- DevOps (incl CI/CD) – Gitlab / Jenkins, Kubernetes, Terraform
- Cloud – GCP (preferable), AWS
- Python (and Django)
- An interest in emerging technologies like AI/ML, Big Data, Blockchain, IoT, Cloud

With this, you would obviously rise quickly as we grow as a full fledged company.

Feel free to contact me if you're interested or if you have any questions. We can sit down over a coffee and discuss in more details.

Looking forward to meeting you,
