Role Overview:

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will work across all teams to champion and deliver a code quality that is high, and that each engineer is developing professionally. Your success will not be based solely on your output but will include the performance of those around you. You are extremely collaborative, an accomplished mentor and coach, with a positive outlook and strong communication skills.

Responsibilities:

  • Identifying, improving and automating team processes and workflows
  • Interviewing and recruiting new team members
  • Championing and embodying great software engineering principles to deliver a better experience for our users and an engaging technology-led engineering environment.
  • Embody, demonstrate and reinforce our company values while embodying Finder’s engineering principles and execution.
  • Quality and timely delivery of squad’s results-focused output
  • Problem-solving skills and the ability to see and create efficient and scalable solutions

Desired Skills & Experience:

We realise that everybody’s experience is unique and we value potential and attitude over experience and so not all of these are necessarily required:

  • Web3.0 / Crypto-currency passion and/or experience
  • Comfortable ability to work across the stack to deliver an outcome, including working with node.js, JavaScript, PHP, React, MySQL, and Docker (experience in all is not required, but the ability and desire to learn is).
  • Experience working with a cross-disciplinary team of Software Engineers, Product Managers and Designers are based remotely in different time zones.
  • Experience and ability to perform DevOps work when required including monitoring, alerting and support.
  • Software and Systems Architecture and solution design.
  • Agile, Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment and Continuous Delivery practices.

Nice to have:

  • DevOps and networking experience, including monitoring, alerting and support.
  • Effective branching and merging techniques such as GitFlow and Trunk-Based

Development

  • Experience with message queues, event processing and event sourcing
  • Demonstrable security, regulation, compliance and auditing expertise.
  • High performance, low latency computing on massive use, global scale platforms
  • Some experience with teams, team members and stakeholders working in different timezones (though it is not expected to be a core requirement of this role).

Not many people have been trained for this sort of role. Research shows that women and people from underrepresented groups are less likely to apply if they feel that they haven’t satisfied every requirement. If you aren’t sure, but like the sound of who we are and what we are doing, apply: we can work out together if this is where you will shine.
