Senior Software Engineer

Toronto, Ontario  - Permanent

Job Description

Our client partner has built a capital markets platform on top of one of the world's most widely adopted SaaS infrastructures, and done so in a way that few others can. They are targeting a fintech market segment that has been overlooked by most (they have one direct competitor so far), but has massive potential. The data centralization, automation, compliance and other services their platform delivers are 10x solutions for companies ranging from small foreign exchange brokers to your community bank. Only a few years into the business, and without any real marketing yet, customers are lining up; they're going to need some help scaling up the current platform and building out the product roadmap if they're going to meet demand... that's where you come in.

As an experienced member of this core platform development, you'll be hands on in development, as well as in providing technical leadership to junior/intermediate team members. You won't need to know the business domain right off the bat, although you'll likely learn it quickly, but the team will be looking to you to help guide dev best practices.

The Tech Stack You Can Expect To Work With
• Java applications deployed on Linux and Windows servers on AWS EC2
• JavaScript, jQuery, Bootstrap, Angular, React, etc.
• Apex (Java adopted by the PaaS cloud)
• Python

Must Have Skills:

• 4+ years of experience building and delivering new features, processes, and tools (ideally with modern Java)
• Experience working with large codebases and writing robust and testable code
• Ability to identify problems and take initiative in solving them
• Ability to balance desire to ship code quickly to our customers with responsibility of making good technical decisions
• Mastery of Agile and Software Engineering best practices

Nice to Have Skills:

• Experience with automated testing
• Experience with Object-Oriented Programming
• Experience leading teams and/or complex technical projects
• Experience working with Apex
• Experience building web application with Python
