They will rely on you for personal and professional development, performance management, and day-to-day guidance.

  • Coaching & challenging the engineers on their journey to the next level while cultivating a culture of ownership, customer centricity, mastery, and purpose

  • Acting as an interface between strategy and delivery. Work with the leadership team, translate and cascade the vision and business priorities to your team

  • Working together with the Product team to build an understanding of the priority of requirements, participate in technical discussions and help shape the roadmap

Who we are looking for:

  • Experience in FinTech, Payment Platforms, PSPs, or other compatible industries will be highly valued.

  • Solid experience with Java-based solutions that utilize Spring into production

Nice to have:

  • Experience building complex software systems successfully delivered to B2B customers

The tech organization is aligned with our overall business goals and works with OKRs, so working collaboratively in a team environment is essential for success in this role. We operate a “you build it, you maintain it” approach to delivery, so being the person to come to on architectural advice for security and scalability is also required.
