Job Description

An established and expanding FinTech company is currently in a growth phase and are looking to take on a React Team Lead to head up their Global React initiative. The company are looking for capable individuals to push the strategy of their vision for their online payments platform forward. The company wants accountable and independent people who are stakeholder facing and capable of contributing within a team environment.

They are set up in cross-functional Agile teams so you’ll have the chance to work alongside other Java developers experienced in front-end and back-end design. The front-end team is utilising React to develop new UI’s; whilst the back-end teams are migrating from a monolithic stack (PHP) into microservices architecture (Java). They currently have no single point of contact or ownership for their existing UI’s (React) and are looking for someone to take over this aspect, as well as head up the Greenfield development of new UI’s as the business grows.

If you’re a Java developer with the following experience then please get in touch!

  • Experience working with React in a microservices environment
  • Experience working with Agile Methodologies
  • Good communication and collaboration skills
  • Experience managing a team in a commercial setting
  • Experience building API driven applications

The following technologies and skills would be beneficial:

  • Exposure to AWS
  • Exposure to GitLab
  • Knowledge of Docker and Kubernetes
  • Exposure to Jenkins
  • Exposure to Jira
  • Exposure to Java

This position comes with a VERY generous benefits package, and you get to pick your own tech!

If you are a React developer with any of these skills, and this sounds like something you would be interested in or would like more information please apply with an up to date CV or email
