• Salary (based on a 35-hour working week) to reflect experience.
• Full time, permanent job with clear pathways to further development and promotion.

Our payments application portfolio is undergoing a transformation programme that spans the next few years. We’re looking at what the biggest tech companies in the world are doing to help solve the huge complexities of our critical systems, and embarking on a new chapter in our architectural thinking.

Our focus is shifting to concepts of event streams or event driven architectures. And we’re looking to utilise technologies such as Apache Kafka, NoSQL Databases and Microservices to build elastically scaling systems capable of handlings hundreds of thousands of events per second. The purpose? Outstanding customer experience. This is an exciting time to join if you’re keen to make an impact.

For more information on this exciting opportunity please contact Daniel Wilson, Resourcing Manager.  

Who we're looking for

If you’ve had experience of some of the following, or similar, we’d like to hear from you.

• Significant programming experience, preferably in C#.
• Responsibility for the design, build and test of code including writing automated test suites.
• Working in Agile and/or DevOps driven environments.
• Experience of working with different architectures, such as Enterprise, cloud, N-Tier, Event Streaming or Microservices.
• Understanding or experience of working with container technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes or OpenShift.
• Knowledge of BizTalk, T-SQL and SQL Server would be a useful.
• Understanding ETL like SSIS (SQL Integration Services) and EAI Tools like IBM Sterling File Gateway is a plus.
• Experience of working with NoSQL databases such as MongoDB, Cassandra or Redis.
• Any previous experience of Apache Kafka would be very beneficial but not essential.
• Knowledge of Infrastructure, Security and Cloud would also be beneficial.
• The ability and mindset to quickly learn new and emerging technologies and apply them to create new solutions is essential.

What you'll be doing

To build this new vision we are looking to recruit a new team of Engineers, who have proven experience in coding and DevOps, who are agile thinkers and ready to help us learn new technologies and architectures. For us, it’s not just about having the right technical background, you need to have an open mind, be able to work collaboratively and be driven to learn and succeed.

You’ll be at the frontline, delivering our vision to our members by designing, building and testing systems used to process millions of transactions every day. You’ll be given the opportunity to work with the most up-to-date technologies to deliver real change.

You’ll make valuable contributions through developing solutions in a highly collaborative environment and implementing them with your team. With end-to-end ownership, development and deployment you’ll be given a platform to lead by example.

That’s our mindset and our culture: we want you to nurture and value proactive habits and to develop contacts and relationships so things are done faster and more efficiently. We’ll expect you to get stuck in and have a go, knowing that sometimes to fail fast is to learn fast.

The extras you'll get

Feeling as though you belong means being valued, recognised and rewarded. We aim to give our people a good work-life balance, so you’ll receive your schedule in advance, helping you to organise your life. We show our support through the recognition and rewards scheme we offer:
