CX Squared are the new and exclusive talent partner to this growing Fintech platform that are shaping the way consumers are able to get credit without the worry of scoring a bad credit check.

We're looking for a Head of Development & Engineering to spearhead the build and launch of this incredible FinTech company. We are looking for ambitious, curious and talented engineers who want to be part of a team where everything they build blows away the competition.

What's important: engineering talent, dedication, craft, perfectionism and an obsession with shipping fast, often and at high quality. They like to work with big thinkers with small egos that want to be part of an industry changing team.

This hire is a critical role and for the right person offers massive opportunities for building a high trajectory career and progressing to the position of CTO. We want to work with you long-term to build a hugely successful business, and want to create a win-win for all early team members who join the founders in making their vision a reality

Culture

Their culture is a very mission-focused one. The characteristics you'll find in this team that underpin their success are tenacity, agility, customer focus, reliability, pride, credibility and strong accountability for their own work. If that sounds like you, you'll fit right in!

We're looking for someone that can:

  • Initially work as the Head of Development and Engineering to execute on a vision to build a brand new auto finance platform
  • Has recent and demonstrable hands on experience of working onwebsites, web-applications, middleware and REST APIs using .NET Core, C# and SQL Server
  • Is keen to develop their understanding and ability to leverage PaaS services in Microsoft Azure
  • Get involved at all stages of the software development lifecycle as part of a cross-functioning team, and additionally with external partner technology teams
  • Be instrumental in driving the architecture and design of the software products being developed by the team
  • Be a part of a small, close-knit and Agile team working on a wide range of activities to get new business and products up and running
  • Work closely with the core founding team and subsequently with data scientists, analysts and product owners to deliver early business value through a launch platform
  • Provide guidance and steer to senior, mid and junior developers
  • Provide a framework for your growing development team which includes
    • coding standards
    • working best practices with peers and team members outside of the development team
    • baseline templates for developer documentation
    • help and guidelines for developers utilising technologies within our stack
  • Identify, hire, manage and develop engineers that may have unproven potential into realising their engineering capability

The skills you'll need:

  • You will be a hybrid hands-on / hands-off head of development due to the size of the business, it is important you are able to "muck in" when needed.
  • Experience of designing, developing, deploying and supporting websites, web-applications and middleware components/services using a range of technologies, from SQL Server, ASP.NET Core and front-end frameworks like React.js and Angular
  • Experience of developing web-services using either REST or SOAP
  • Strong knowledge of database design and working with relational databases such as SQL Server
  • General working knowledge of HTML, CSS, Java, Javascript and sql (all hosted on Azure)
  • Experience of applying design patterns and best practices to code and working towards SOLID principles
  • Unit and integration test development knowledge and experience of TDD
  • Awareness of best practices around developing secure software
  • A willingness to learn and continuously improve skills and knowledge.
  • Experience of working with continuous integration systems and ideally with continuous deployment principles/technologies
  • Committed to software quality, documentation and hitting deadlines

Not essential, but skills that put you into our "we want you" band:

  • Azure and PaaS software architectures
  • Experience with start-ups
  • Ability and willingness to work on a variety of tasks related to starting a business
  • Experience of building a dev-ops culture
  • Performance tuning at both code and database levels
  • Knowledge of SOA and building enterprise level systems

If this could be worth exploring further, than please get in touch with Dan Rodrigues for a confidential conversation.

The salary is lower than market, but this will increase each year and this is largely because of the fact that equity options will be offered as part of the package.
