Lead 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 you work alongside and guide your scrum team. 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 and Python applications deployed on AWS EC2
• JavaScript, jQuery, Bootstrap, Angular, React, etc.
• Apex (Java adopted by the Force.com PaaS cloud)

Must Have Skills:

• A love of development
• 4+ years of experience building and delivering new features, processes, and tools (ideally with Java or Apex)
• 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
• Lead Developer or Scrum Master experience

Nice to Have Skills:

• Experience with automated testing
• Experience with Object-Oriented Programming
• Experience with software security
• Experience managing CI/CD processes
• Experience mentoring junior to intermediate Developers
