Software/Platform Engineer

£35,000 to £75,000

We are working with an FTSE100 client, based in South London, that is looking to completely transform an area of its business. It has embarked on a 5-year transformation program to change into a technology provider. It will be building out a brand-new cloud-based distributed platform that will have an interactive, app-based, customer front end that will be fully automated. This is a start-up environment within a major financial services client.


As part of this greenfield implementation, it is looking to take on a number of software engineers to help build out the platform. You will be working in a completely agile environment and be part of a lean scrum team (no larger than 9 people). Initially, you will look to replace the existing ageing infrastructure (moving to AWS) and then go on to product development. This is a chance to get involved with a major digital transformation from the start and be a key member of the team as they progress through.


We are looking for experienced Software Engineers, at home with solving complex problems. At this stage of the project there is little room for upskilling, so we will need you to get stuck in straight away. From a tech perspective, with the implementation, they are moving to Python and AWS. Therefore, experience with Python is absolutely essential. Moreover, you would have likely come from a more of a robust/enterprise engineering environment (i.e. highly-complex, highly-performant, multi-threaded, distributed platforms/systems) ideally utilising Java/JVM technology stacks.


Experience needed

•       Software Engineer Generalist

•       Python

•       Agile/Scrum exposure

•       Ideally worked in a digital environment


There is a load more tech our client is using but Python is the main one they are looking for. Without this, it’s a none starter.


The programme is due to officially start in January ‘19 and our client is looking for anyone who is available to start from October ‘18 onwards, finance has been secured and they are ready to go.
