Java Engineering Lead (Manager)
London (Hybrid working, some international travel required)
Circa £130,000 + bonus + benefits + share options
Bold claim alert: This firm are completely changing the way the payments industry operates.
By collaborating with more than 30 of the biggest financial services firms in the world, this organisation is building a platform that is re-shaping the industry standards and significantly improving the way that global payments are made.
This is a platform that is being developed by the industry, for the industry, and this role will be leading the software development team who build that platform.
Currently, the build has been managed by a third-party organisation – this will be the first purely technical hire made in-house, in London.
Responsibilities will include taking ownership of the build and recruiting a team locally – you will work closely with the senior leadership team and external partners.
The technology is high availability, low latency and based on event streaming – they use Java, AWS, Kafka and Kubernetes.
This role is effectively a management position, but the firm have been very clear to state they want someone who is still close to technology – someone who can speak knowledgably to senior engineers and have opinions on development practices. This role is not a hands-on dev position, but if you still love to code whilst managing a team, you’re in the right place.
