About your role:

We are looking for a Senior Full Stack Engineer to help innovate, design, create and deliver next generation solutions across a range of innovative projects, prototypes and proofs of concept. This role is for an engineer who loves being involved in projects from end to end, from the initial concepts and the refinement of the problem space, through to the design and delivery of the technical solution.

This role will involve bringing your skills to bear across the full development stack including Front End (UI), Back End (service and data) and Cloud (services and infrastructure) as well as early stage technical analysis of business problems.  This will mean:

  • Providing hands-on development in a front end, back end and cloud context, choosing and setting up frameworks, building the core parts of new projects, troubleshooting and testing.

  • Being relied on to set the technical direction to solve complex technical problems and achieve business goals.

  • Helping to evaluate the business challenges we focus on and identifying how technology could be used to address parts of or all of the problem.

  • Providing support in evaluating the market and competitive ecosystem from a technical standpoint.

  • Working in an agile technical team providing advanced engineering expertise and guidance to high quality standards.

  • Pair programming with team members and reviewing code to help maintain best practices and high quality.

  • Documenting key technical implementations details, approaches and mechanisms.

  • Identifying and considering reusability opportunities for components and services.

  • Working with technical leads and other senior engineers to design hands-on training sessions and workshops.

  • Participating in engagements with clients and stakeholders to understand their requirements by attending progress updates, biweekly calls/meetings.

  • Working with architects to analyse and design complex integrated technical solutions, services and components.

  • Collaborating with Product Designers, Product Managers, Designers and Engineers to deliver compelling user-facing products.

  • Breaking technical epics or stories into detailed technical specifications tasks and provide reasonable workload estimation.

  • Transferring knowledge to multi-functional teams and provide major defect support.

  • Being a technical mentor to share your specialisms and best practices.

Your everyday abilities:

We are looking for Full Stack Engineers with strong independent logical thinking and broad technical knowledge on designing UX, creating core functional logic components, APIs, complex data and application integration who understands the perspectives of front-end and back-end engineering, data scientists, DevOps and be able to choose the right technology and approach rather than constraining yourself to addressing everything with a single technology stack.

You should have skills and experience in the following technical areas:

  • Java EE ecosystem (Spring MVC, Spring Boot, Hibernate, etc.)

  • Or Python ecosystem (e.g. Python 3, Flask, Gunicorn, Pandas)

  • Or Node.js with one or more frameworks (e.g. Express.js, Sails.js)

  • Typescript or JavaScript (including async/await, ES6+ concepts)

  • HTML5/CSS3 and related component libraries and tooling

  • React, Angular, Vue.js or equivalent frameworks/libraries

  • RESTful APIs, u-Services, message/event, serverless -based architectures

  • Test frameworks (e.g. Jest/Enzyme, Mocha/Chai, jUnit/Mockito)

  • Relational and NoSQL databases (e.g. MySQL, MongoDB, Cassandra, etc.)

  • Cloud services: e.g. AWS/Azure/Google Cloud Platform

  • Containerisation technologies and platforms (e.g. Docker, K8s, EKS/AKS/GKE etc.)

You should also be knowledgeable and experienced in other aspects of software engineering:

  • Agile development (SCRUM, Kanban, etc)
