Job description

Would you like to help bring cryptocurrency trading into the mainstream institutional market place?

LMAX Exchange has recently launched the world's first cryptocurrency exchange for institutional investors, based on our award winning technology and 10 years experience building and operating FX trading platforms.

We're looking for someone who has the skills and interest to help grow our blockchain and cryptocurrency expertise - enhancing our existing integrations, bringing new coins to the platform, and acting as a subject matter expert supporting the rest of the team.

Come work with us!


What you’ll be doing:

Coding, and lots of it. The majority of our code base is in Java - we stay up to date and use the latest versions and language features. There is a decent chunk of Web technology (Javascript/vue.js, HTML, and CSS) and databases (SQL) too.

Design. You will be working with other members of the team to figure out how to implement new features or meet a specific requirement. This is a fairly fluid process with lots of discussion and white-boarding, while avoiding extensive documentation.

Performance testing and profiling. Working on a financial exchange brings some interesting throughput and latency challenges, so we care a lot more about software performance than many other organisations. This often requires investigative work and digging deep into the internals of our systems to understand how they behave.

Production support. A necessary part of any production system. All developers help out with supporting our business and technology operations staff to resolve issues as they occur.


Our Values:

A dedication to quality. We believe that a process based on 'fast feedback cycles' is a great way to build a stable, well performing system. To support this we employ a significant amount of automated testing, automated deployment and continuous integration. LMAX Exchange was an early adopter of Continuous Delivery and continues to be a leader in the area (one of the authors worked for us for several years).

Working collaboratively. Software is not built in a vacuum, people with blended skill sets working together produce the best results. We use practices like collaborative design and pair programming. This allows us to work together on design and implementation as well as sharing knowledge and helping new starters get up to speed quickly. For testing we eschew a “throw it over the wall” mentality and developers will write and do a lot of their own testing, which frees up the test analysts to do higher value exploratory testing.

Keeping it simple. Modern software systems are often very complex. Simplicity helps us to build more reliable, maintainable and higher performing systems. We work hard to make our systems as simple as possible while solving the problems at hand. Simple isn’t always easy and we believe in putting in that extra bit of effort to get us to a good solution.

Always improving. While we like to think that we do a number of things well (many of our team have spoken at conferences about how we build software and handle challenging performance problems), we recognise that we can always get better. We regularly examine our successes and failures to look at how we can improve both as a team and individually. Alongside regular internal training sessions, we have a generous budget supporting attendance at conferences or training courses.


What we’re looking for:

Above all, we are looking for someone who shares our values and is great to work with.

You need to have a good understanding of the major crytocurrencies - e.g. Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash. If you have experience working with altcoins (either native or ERC20), that would be a bonus.

Knowledge of our technology stack and the broader business domain is useful, but by no means a requirement. However, you will need to be happy working with our set of technologies and be willing to retrain if required.

We are considering applications at a range of levels from graduates to experienced senior developers. Compensation will be based on the skills, experience and expertise that you bring to the team.

 You must also have appropriate eligibility to work in the UK.


Additional Information:

LMAX Exchange is an equal opportunity employer and actively seeks to ensure that we continue to attract applications from a diverse range of candidates to reflect the diversity that already exists across the organisation.

We offer a competitive selection of benefits including 25 days a year annual leave.

We manage our workflow to free up Friday afternoons to work on self-chosen projects outside of the immediate business priorities.

  • Tech
    • Back-end MVC Framework

  • Mindset
    • Passionate about technology, product and user experience.

  • Experience using database abstraction layers like Hibernate.
  • Be a customer of TransferWise

Benefits:

Apart from the all-expenses-paid company trips, stock options in one of Europe’s most hotly tipped startups, a laptop and team lunches every Friday, you won’t get much in the way of extras. However, we will give you 25 days holiday a year (plus public holidays), a fun, friendly atmosphere, plenty of opportunities to grow and the chance to be part of our little revolution. Oh, and coffee, there’s plenty of coffee.

Some important stuff we would like you to know

To meet our regulatory obligations as a licensed financial services company, TransferWise needs to take background checks on all new hires, which may include Criminal and Credit checks. Please discuss with the Recruiter if you have any concerns regarding this process.

At TransferWise we believe in fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace. Therefore, we want to make sure that our recruitment process is accessible to everyone. So if you need any reasonable adjustments – at any point in the process – we’ll do our best to help. Just let us know what you need on your application form, or drop us an email at adjustments@transferwise.com. You might need a reasonable adjustment if you’ve got a disability. Or maybe you live overseas, and you’d prefer to meet us over Skype.

Please don’t send anything to the adjustments address if you’re a recruiter, or if you’re making a speculative application. We do work with recruiters from time to time – but only through LinkedIn. And we only accept job applications when a position is actually open. So you’re better off just checking the recruitment pages regularly.

Job description

An amazing opportunity for full-stack Javascript developers to build a modern, serverless product from scratch, creating the team working-style and best practice as we go.

Job description

If it involves client and server-side Javascript, you can build it, and if it's some new technology you haven't used before... you'll figure it out.

Selecting and using modern development methods and following agile practices, you will build top-to-bottom functionality with ReactJS and React Native for the web & mobile front-ends, through to AWS Lambda, API Gateway, Step Functions, Kinesis, Aurora, Cognito, Pinpoint, Cloud Directory, Redshift, SQS, Quicksight… and as much of the rest of the AWS FaaS and platform services as make sense to allow you to focus on building applications rather than plumbing.

You will be part of a new, three-developer team, to deliver a modern application suite that enables companies, public sector organisations, schools and the general public to book and manage the transport they need to get their staff, students and holidaymakers to where they need to be…. think Uber™ for coaches!

Working in harmony with a devops lead, you’ll also need to lend a hand defining the Terraform based configurations, and figuring out the best methods and tech to introduce CI/CD efficiencies.

Based amongst some of your user base in our Cox Green, Maidenhead office, you will have ample opportunity for corridor testing of ideas through prototypes, whilst more formal UAT will be structured to ensure you (and we!) have the confidence your product will deliver in live.

Please note that this is not a home or remote worker role, so you must be commutable to Cox Green, however, as with all developer roles, we expect there will be a number days during each week where you simply need to stay home, get your head down and code!

About you

You’re a self-starter: a highly enthusiastic and motivated Javascript-centric developer used to adapting to and learning new technologies, design patterns and architectures as the need arises.

You love building product that people actually use and just as importantly you care passionately about quality: not just in the end product, but also in delivering code that other developers can maintain, using best-practice design principles and coding standards.

You wouldn’t dream about writing code without an accompanying test, and you treasure the DevOps principles of developers and technical operations working in harmony to embed security, scale and resilience into your continuous delivery strategy.

Teamwork means more to you than just sharing the tea-runs and buying the Haribo™  on your birthday. You actively assist and mentor your peers in their own learning, know when to ask for help yourself, and the two highlights of your sprint cycle are the planning and retrospective sessions, where you both give and take across story definition, personal recognition and constructive suggestions for improvements.

Your skills

  • Javascript Expert: you know your promises from your closures and can tell the difference between your observables, prototypes and modules.
  • ReactJS: if you haven’t yet, then you know you want to; and can instead demonstrate your expertise across Angular, Ember, Dojo or Vue.
  • React Native: you may have only dabbled, or you may have apps already on the stores, complete with shelling out to native components and SDKs like Geolocation or NFC. Alternatively, if you’ve got some Android Java, SWIFT or ObjectiveC under your belt, then it all counts.
  • AWS Lambda, API Gateway, Step Functions… or NodeJS: Let’s be realistic… not every developer has worked for forward-thinking companies that know serverless is the future, so if you haven’t yet had a chance to ditch the [virtual] tin, prove to us instead that you are a NodeJS guru and can learn the modern AWS FaaS methodologies as you go.
  • Redux? Webpack? Gulp? Browserify? Flux? Relay? Flow? ImmutableJS?: If you have the skills and can prove the advantage of your preferred libraries to your peers, then consensus will mean go for it (license agreement permitting).
  • HTML/CSS/SASS/LESS/REST/JSON: Duh!
  • TDD/BDD: we shouldn’t even have to mention it. You’ve been on Github. You know that no self respecting NPM ships without its tests. You practice what you preach and provide unto others what which you expect to consume yourself… and it’s not an afterthought.
  • Terraform: if you’ve got it, we’ll take it.
  • Security ingrained: You know your CAPTCHAs from your SQL injection from your brute force attacks, how to specify and develop to mitigate them, and under the covers you know your IAM from your KMS from your Secrets Manager and will layer security throughout your application stack. ...PII - encrypt it!
  • English Communication Skills: you can debate your technical solutions with developers and business people alike. You won’t be expected to write War & Peace, but you will be expected to keep the development wiki comprehensible

The RWAS Technology mission is to deliver world class and globally scalable technology platforms and analytics applied to complex and large scale clinical datasets, to support IQVIA’s ongoing and rapid growth in Real World Evidence, as well as the development of new product lines - this requires global leadership across technical and data architecture, software development and data visualization, privacy management, analytical methods, data science, machine learning, deep learning and natural language processing (NLP) - building upon 100s of novel technologies and methods either published in peer reviewed journals or patented by our team.

The solutions are delivered to a variety of clients across life-science, government, payor or provider organizations. The CoE also curates the largest collection de-identified Real-World Data in the world, from different patient care settings in 18 countries worldwide – the RWES Tech CoE is at the forefront of “Big Data” in healthcare.
