  • A strong background in server-side Java development, with an understanding of caching, multi-threading and distributed environments
  • Experience in the design and development of Spring Boot Microservices and REST APIs
  • A proven ability to lead Agile engineering teams and being a champion of modern development best practises (TDD/BDD, DevOps etc.)
  • Any knowledge or experience of cloud would be extremely beneficial, especially Google Cloud (GCP)
  • Whilst not critical, a career within financial services is ideal (especially data-centric environments)
This is an excellent opportunity for a talented Lead Java Engineer to make a meaningful contribution to the data storage/exchange practises and facilities of a world-leading Investment Bank.
