Job Details

Are you a full stack Java developer with a couple of years under your belt and a solid foundation in software development using one of the following; Java, Kotlin, JavaScript or TypeScript? Do you enjoy your current role as a full stack Java developer, but wish the business domain was a little more complex? If you think this might be you and think that working on systems that handle millions of pounds of FX trades might be the kind of challenge you are looking for then keep reading.

This small software house is looking for someone just like you. The team you would be joining works on their flagship product and consists of a tech lead and a mixture of Java and JavaScript (React) developers. The developers are working on a suite of products used in the trading of FX and they need someone with a sharp eye for detail, good numeracy and a level headed approach to help them make sure they get it right.

The work is on some of the more complex aspects of the application that deal with real time messaging between distributed applications. This position has come about through two big client projects getting the greenlight and the team needs to grow to handle an increased workload.

In the short term this role has a pretty steep learning curve but you will have the support of the team and the wider business. You will be working with people who want you to succeed and are happy to share knowledge with you to help you do so. Long term you will become a domain expert in the FX space and your technical skills will be razor sharp as the team you are working with insist on constantly trialing the new technologies and ideas.

What are the basic skills you need to get started?

  • Server side Java or Kotlin
  • JavaScript with React
  • The role is full stack you are likely confident in one of the above and keen on learning the other.

Things you could learn on the job;

  • Cloud based application
  • Real time streaming
  • DevOps tools
  • FX trading

Working arrangements

Everyone at the company is working fully remotely and will be for the foreseeable future. However they would like to hire people who under normal circumstances would enjoy a day or two a week in the office with colleagues. They will be very flexible as to what this looks like.

What to do next?

If this sounds like it could be your next challenge please get in touch. Don't worry if you don't have a CV yet just drop me an email and we can discuss further. I have placed a number of developers with this business and have a very clear idea of who they look to recruit.
