Tech Lead (Finance)

at The App Business in London

We're looking for a Technical Lead to join our diverse and multi-talented App Services Team.
A passionate, dedicated tech lead with a polyglot mindset and a strong commitment to quality, you will have the ability to tackle complex architectural and design challenges across financial applications.

Our purpose is simple - create mobile experiences that make the world work better for billions of people. It’s a lofty one, but when we inject our mobile specialism into some of the biggest companies in the world, we ship game changing products.

Whether its rebuilding essential weather services with the Met Office, transforming journey planning with Go-Ahead Group, or evolving how TfL tests brakes on their tube trains - our cross-functional team of engineers, designers, strategists, product owners and Agile specialists are ready to take on the challenge.

As the biggest team of mobile specialists in the UK, we are always ready for what’s coming next. We believe that the app is dead, as we see user experiences unbundle into a multitude of emerging platforms and touchpoints all with their own take on technology and development approach. Everything from a speaker in your car, to a watch on your wrist and intelligent microservices in the cloud.

You will need to be an adaptable, flexible engineer that puts the technology and software design approach at the forefront of your skill, but understand the value in making it simple enough that end users and our clients don’t know the software exists.

You will be:
A skilled engineer, who is always looking to further your craft,
Passionate about technology, and thrive when dealing with the cutting-edge and the unknown,
Able to solve challenging technical and non-technical problems independently and autonomously,
Able to rapidly understand the complexities of amalgamating diverse banking and payment platforms into a single, open architecture.
An excellent communicator who can work effectively as part of a collaborative team and alongside clients,
An experienced and trusted adviser to the business; willing to support and mentor your team to success and able to navigate challenging enterprise environments effectively

You must have experience with:
Leading the delivery of large, complex transactional solutions in a heavily regulated environment
Financial technologies (FinTech)
Card payment transactions
Digital ID and Verification
Mobile payment
Strong understanding of PSD2 and its technical implications on the industry
Integration with systems using a variety of techniques (e.g. message queues, APIs, data feeds)
Cloud and on-prem
.Net and/or enterprise Java
Microservices/SOA architecture

It would be nice to have:
Solution design and able to contribute to commercial presentations
Face to face presentational skills and experience
Digital Ticketing
MS Azure and/or AWS

Interviews & Process
Our interview process consists of three rounds, starting with an initial technical test. If successful, we would then invite you for a telephone interview and following this we will then invite you to meet with us face to face, where you will demonstrate your thinking ability as well as your skills and experiences. So if The App Business sounds like the sort of unique challenge that matches your ambitions, please get in touch with our HR team.
