Technical Lead - Cardiff

Salary - Competitive + Benefits package

Our team is productive and intuitive. This is somewhere where innovative thinking and the power of technology know no limits. We know that the success of the business depends on the people who keep it moving, which is why we are looking for exceptional talent to join our international payments revolution. We are processing billions of dollars every year but we want to do more!

We recently received funding from the Banking Competition Remedies (BCR) programme to help accelerate our growth and are looking to expand our capabilities in our Cardiff office.

About the role…

Our stack is made up of distributed applications, primarily built on Ruby, Scala, RabbitMQ, Redis, MySQL/Aurora and Javascript.

Whilst the core of our systems has been built using Ruby we are currently keen to bring in engineers with more diverse backgrounds. As we move to a more microservices architecture we are looking to the Senior Engineers & Tech Leads for our new teams to have an influence over the technology their teams use; perhaps you are experienced in Java? Python? Javascript? We want to speak to people who like to solve problems.


The Details…

* Coaching and mentoring of team members
* Spearhead the vision of the team
* Natural curiosity which helps us to improve
* Being a driving force behind architectural discussions with the team
* Working with scalable web applications and APIs
* Solid experience using Java, Scala, Python, Javascript or anything else you feel may be the right tool for the job.
* Using a large SQL database
* Working alongside Infrastructure/DevOps with provisioning tools (e.g Terraform, AWS, Docker)

What Skills & Experience do I need?

* Developing with other modern languages (e.g. Scala, Elixir, Go, Python) is appreciated
* Experience using and developing on AWS is preferred
* Functional programming with Ruby desired - practical or theoretical


We offer a comprehensive range of employee benefits, along with a no dress code policy, flexible work from home arrangements, a day off for your birthday and socials every Friday. So, if you’re ready to join a thriving global business with a tech arm in Cardiff, get in touch!
