A fast growing Fintech startup who have just launched are looking to hire Engineer number one to the team. With a strong previous track record & a Cofounder with an OBE, this is an opportunity not to be missed.



As the client are currently still in stealth, they will tell you more about what they are doing in person, but for now, all I can say is that it’s a software as a service (SaaS) platform aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises (SME’s). 


They’ve raised a healthy but prudent amount of seed funding from fantastic angel investors 


About the role

You will be reporting to the CTO and will be the first member of the engineering team. Your job is initially to help to get their MVP shipped in Q1 2017 and after that building out the product for production. They are open minded about the level of experience you have and what your background is.


Technology wise, the solution is a full stack javascript (react + node) monolithic application. They will add other technology such as Golang, Clojure and microservices to the stack, but for now, productivity is the main priority they are keeping things simple.


Take the lists below as a guide - you don’t need to have everything.



  • 1-5 years professional experience

  • Fintech / finance experience

  • Start up experience

  • SaaS experience


  • Core Javascript with and without frameworks

  • Functional programming

  • Es6 / es2015

  • Server side coding with scripting languages (Javascript, Ruby, Python)

  • Front end javascript / UX engineering, (React, Angular, Vue, Cyclejs)


  • SQL and noSQL databases (postgres, mySQL, mongodb, redis)

  • Automated testing

  • Devops, docker, AWS, google cloud compute
