Job Description

Backend Software Engineer / Developer (C++ 17 Linux Low Latency) *Hybrid WfH*. Do you have expertise with multi-threaded C++? You could be progressing your career and working on Greenfield systems at a FinTech that has been consistently voted as one of the best places to work in the UK.

As a Backend Software Engineer you will join a small Agile team of highly talented engineers on a new project to improve the existing real-time pricing engine using modern engineering best practices such as TDD / unit testing and C++17. There are challenges around low latency optimisation and scalability; you'll be collaboratively problem solving and working on complex systems. You'll be working across the full development lifecycle from stakeholder liaison through to delivery, setting the standards and driving quality.

There's currently a remote interview / onboarding process as well as work from home during the current social distancing measures with a great deal of flexibility going forwards (2 days in the office, flexible start times); when you are in the office you'll be based in the City with an upbeat team environment, casual dress code and a range of facilities including roof terrace and break out areas.


*You have C++ backend software engineering experience
*You have a good knowledge of Linux OS
*You have an understanding of real-time, low-latency, high-throughput, distributed and scalable systems (doesn't have to be in finance e.g. gaming, telcos or other highly transactional real-time environment)
*You're an advocate of Agile methodologies with a good knowledge of Scrum, TDD, CI/CD
*You have strong analysis and problem solving skills
*You're collaborative and pragmatic with great communication skills

As a Backend Software Engineer / Developer you will earn a competitive salary (to £75k) plus bonus and 12.5% flexible benefits package including generous pension contribution.
