Your employer: You can truly make an impact at this already successful FinTech Scale-Up!
This mid-sized FinTech Scale-Up in Amsterdam is making waves with its innovative (PaaS) API platform. Founded by one of the most established financial players in Europe, they were the first movers to turn their core software platform into unprecedented insights and products across Europe. Working here means having a direct impact on financial innovation throughout Europe! Who can say that?
The unique aspect of this mid-sized tech scale-up is that it offers the best of both worlds: all the security maturity and financial backup you’d expect from an established organization, but with the flexibility, speed, intimacy, autonomy, and camaraderie of a mid-sized organization where everyone still knows each other by name.
Additionally, they have automated delivery pipelines, a high level of engineering expertise, no legacy (brand-new codebase), and a modern stack all in the cloud. In short, you’ll build high-quality software and take ownership of the entire development lifecycle.
Moreover, you’ll have the chance to develop yourself in a T-shaped manner in areas that truly interest you. Apart from Backend & Frontend development, you can explore containerization/cloud, data engineering, security, or even business-oriented challenges. As they still have a relatively small development team, you can also significantly impact the company’s further development, providing you with ongoing challenges for years to come.
Your role: Senior Full-Stack Node.JS Engineer Amsterdam
In your role as Senior Full-Stack Node.JS Engineer Amsterdam, you’ll have the opportunity to take this platform to an even higher level. You’ll work closely with the business and your tech team, continuously seeking ways to build shared services through the reusability of your software. This means you can truly delve deep into the tech underlayer and contribute to a lot of innovation and impact!
As a full-stack engineer, the emphasis is on the backend (70%), but you can also definitely build exciting functionalities within the frontend (30%). Due to the continuous success and growth in the number of customers, there are many challenges related to resilience, scalability, and availability. Additionally, you can sink your teeth into DevOps challenges; CI/CD, Containerization, and Test Automation. Security is also of great importance, and challenges like compliance, authentication, and networking lie ahead for you.
The test coverage here is at least 95%, so if you truly want to learn how to build quality code, this is the place! In the short term, you can launch all sorts of highly disruptive products that will only strengthen their proposition AND will be built completely from scratch! So, it’s a great opportunity to take services and functionalities to the next level where there’s already a lot of load (plenty of feedback on your work!), as well as designing and building brand-new services!
Considering the immense global potential of the systems you’ll be working on, the organization’s rapid successful growth, and the highly attractive market, you can truly grow with the organization and lay the foundation for further expansion.
