Job Description

Senior Front End Developer - Central London - £100,000

A truly stand out opportunity has arisen for a Senior Front End Developer, with experience within FS industries, to take a leading role and play an intrinsic part in the prosperity of this hugely impressive, award winning FinTech business. You will utilise your technical skills and contribute your ideas, strategies and thoughts towards the development of this cutting edge, greenfield software for the FinTech space, ensuring a meaningful contribution and visible role in this fast growing business.

In addition to a very competitive salary package and the opportunity to join an award winning team, this impressive role will also offer the highly skilled technical individual the chance to take an overarching approach to the overall strategy, offering the opportunity to take ownership of new features and technology related choices.

With this in mind, this will require the expertise of a creative and dynamic 'ideas' individual who is passionate about adopting an innovative approach and not shying away from challenging the status quo. Your methodology will ensure overall success of the product, both in the UK and globally. Although this is not a management role, you will be considered a senior leader in the team who will demonstrate the confidence liaising with other developers and senior management, both in the UK and US. Also showing a willingness to develop and mentor the more junior members of the development team.

The fundamental purpose of the role is to develop a cutting edge suite of greenfield applications providing front, middle and back office functions for alternative assets and trading. Working within an agile environment you would be comfortable working with Sprint based deliveries ensuring convergence within the team and successful communication.

Essential requirements are:

Experience developing with JavaScript and React for large scale applications.

Experience with React - React Native would be particularly advantageous, but not essential.

Knowledge of how to write unit tests and integration tests, within a front end context.

Wealth of experience in responsive design and REST API's.

Experience within financial services or FinTech industries.

Proven record of making meaningful contributions to the development of applications and software, always striving to improve and enhance development and the end product, offering innovative ideas.

Type script experience would also be particularly favourable, as would experience with either Azure or AWS.

To be considered for this highly attractive role, it is absolutely ESSENTIAL that you have held a lead developer role within a medium to large, financial services or FinTech business. The salary on offer is up to £100,000, depending on the skills and experience you bring to the role. Applications from candidates without this experience will NOT be considered.

In addition to a starting salary of up to £100,000, this business boasts good holidays and benefits, a nice working environment, flexible working and social events. Please register your interest by sending your CV quoting the reference number ASH17612EWN.
