LIFE AT FORM3
We’re an open, diverse and friendly bunch who believe everyone has a voice. Our team is a mixture of banking experts, techies, artists, marketers, and customer advocates. Simply put, we're obsessed with creating cloud-based solutions that get real time, cutting edge payment tech into the hands of FinTechs and banks alike.
By joining Form3 you’ll get the opportunity to be part of our rapidly scaling business, and work side by side with some of the most experienced people in tech and payments, working in one of the highest growth sectors for payment FinTech in the world.
We don’t mind whereabouts you are based as we offer the opportunity for our team to work remotely from anywhere in the UK or EU. Most of our tech team work this way in fact, by using screen sharing technology to share knowledge and work together doing pair programming. We have found that our team are happier and much more productive that way.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
We are looking for Senior Software Developers who want to help build the next generation payment API in the cloud.
We are looking for enthusiastic developers who want to work with the latest technologies, solve interesting problems and be part of a really great team. There are a wide range of problems to tackle, from configuring nginx proxies to writing custom payment routing and handling logic, and we contribute open source back to the community. We believe that the language you write the code in is just how you convey your solution to the computer and the real value is being able to think through a problem.
WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING
You will be working on new development projects, focused on best practice across the board, including automation of absolutely everything (Terraform for infrastructure deployments to AWS, CI/CD with contract-based testing and auto-deployment of services within Docker containers, etc.), pair programming and TDD/BDD. Although many of us live around London, we are operating as a remote team, and typically working from home and pair programming.
We try to pick the right tool for the job, and these regularly change. To give you a flavour though:
- Some of the languages we currently use are: Golang, Java, Python and Ruby
- Some of the tools we use: Terraform, Docker, Vault, Consul, Linkerd
- Our platform runs in AWS where we use: SQS, SNS, EC2, ECS, RDS and others
- Polyglot: Choosing the right tool to solve the problem is critical, and we expect you to have professional experience with at least 2 different programming languages and multiple platforms and tools.
- Distributed architecture: We expect you to have previous experience engineering complex distributed systems, and a view on topics such as service discovery, integration testing, inter-process communication, how to define your services and APIs, as well as experience with distributed data stores.
- Public cloud: You have worked with public cloud services (AWS, Google Cloud etc.)
- TDD/BDD: Code quality is key, and we expect you to have worked with Test-driven development (TDD) and Behaviour-driven development (BDD) and be familiar with the use of tools such as Cucumber.
- Most of our code is written in Java and Go, so experience with either would be helpful
- All our services are built and managed as docker containers, so Kubernetes, and general docker experience is preferred.
- We like clean code, so experience with Event Sourcing/CQRS will be useful.
- We do contract-based testing, using tools such as Pact
- We work as a devops team, so experience in automating operations (such as infrastructure as code, automated monitoring and alerting, build pipelines etc) would also be useful.
You’ll get the opportunity to be part of a rapidly scaling FinTech company, working alongside some of the brightest talents in tech and payments:
- Flexible remote working/work from home
- 30 days holiday (plus Bank Holidays)
- Pair programming, with an experienced team of engineers
- Competitive salary
- Latest technologies
- Company bonus scheme
- Pension contribution
- Be part of an incredible and diverse team
