Job Description

Our client is a cutting edge FinTech startup who have taken the engineering scene in NY by storm - having recently gone through a Series B round, they have been featured in countless tech publications and regular attendees of the conference/ meet up scene in the city. They recently had the founder of JavaScript, Brendan Eich, speak at one of their hosted events and were recently sponsored by Microsoft.

Their technology is used by financial institutions and trading platforms to build high performance, HTML5 applications. Essentially they use Open Source technology to allow programmers to use the most advanced, user friendly interfaces across all web, desktop and mobile platforms. This is technology for technologists.

With a very complex and forward thinking tech stack made up of JavaScript, Node.js, C++, Hadoop and other big data technologies, they are solving very problems that have not been solved before.

In this role you'll be responsible for building cloud based API's and UI services. Further, you'll be working on high load, scalable systems requiring zero downtime and rapid response times.

This person will be a master of web based architecture and be an expert with JavaScript. Node.js experience is highly desired, however system design, OOP and computer science fundamentals are of more importance. Additionally you will be responsible for researching new and innovative technologies that can improve the way they build.

The culture there is very relaxed, yet challenging and encourages innovation, collaboration and autonomy. If this sounds like something of interest, don't hesitate to get in touch.
