Senior Software Engineer - Banking



Software Engineering
London, UK
Posted on Wednesday, October 26, 2022
The banking team within Spendesk oversees everything thing related to money. From generating virtual cards, to making a wire transfer, or maintaining balance for customer accounts. This critical part of the software requires secure and reliable solutions. Your work is to develop and maintain the API that offers banking services within Spendesk, and the back office that allows internal auditors to operate the banking platform.
We expect engineers to be able to work on every part of the feature, specs, technical design, development, testing, documentation, and maintenance. Money doesn't allow approximation; in the banking squad, we don't compromise over quality.
Finally, your job is not only about writing code, we are looking for great team players. As money is at the heart of our system, you’ll get to work closely with anyone across the company and every decision you’ll make may have a huge impact.

Our stack:

  • Typescript
  • Node.js for our backend and banking applications
  • React/Redux on the frontend of the Backoffice.
  • PostgreSQL for data storage, Redis and SQS for jobs and queues
  • Terraform to define our infrastructure
  • AWS to run all of this
  • Github actions for CI.

What we're looking for:

  • Numerous years’ experience in back-end development with respect to state-of-the-art practices
  • Strong experience in designing distributed and secure systems
  • Modern JavaScript/ES6 libraries
  • Experience with NodeJS on large scale backend applications
  • Good knowledge of micro-services architectures
  • Experience designing, building and maintaining APIs
  • A product focussed mindset
  • Comfortable with DevOps aspects
  • Autonomy, fast-learning and proactiveness
  • Good knowledge on testing best practices
As we are an international team, please submit your application and CV in English.
