Eindhoven R&D team
You will be part of the new European R&D site that is responsible for a critical part of the Othera platform. You will be joining the team at an early stage and will be instrumental in determining the direction. You’ll help shape a sophisticated web application, in close contact with European customers. The application runs on top of an enterprise blockchain with close ties to public blockchains. Development challenges are at the blockchain level to integrate smart contract execution across chains, at the server level to include financial modeling, and in the frontend to integrate into the workflow of the traders. UX, software quality and security, and fast, incremental delivery are key.
You will be building components and applications for the Othera platform: complex approval workflows, visualizing loan data, messaging, document generation, etc. Our platform is predominantly web-based, but also includes mobile applications. You have seen your fair share of frontend frameworks and languages and know how-to pick the right tool for the job. You have a strong focus on test-first and quality. You like to learn and stay on top of technological developments.
The Techie Details
- You know how to connect frontend and backend and avoid the pitfalls of routing, state management (e.g. Redux), performance, and security.
- You prefer strongly typed and functional languages to simply know it works when the build says ok. Typescript experience helps.
- We strongly believe in TDD and pair programming for quality and fun, you know how to test your user interfaces and know your way around frameworks and tools, e.g., Mocha/Chai or Cucumber and Protractor.
- You can demonstrate you created challenging software. Large-scale, single-page web applications beyond the 2,000-line textbook example. More than once.
- You have an engineering degree (BSc or more, PhDs are most welcome), ideally in Computer Science or equivalent.
- Given the fintech domain, relevant experience in the financial industry, esp. trading bonds, is a big plus.
The Social Stuff
- We know that a true diverse team in gender, cultural background, and age can move mountains. Our company language is English. Dutch is not required.
- We love the pragmatism of lean and agile, continuous improvement, and the close contact with customers. Prior experience is good, if not, you’ll find out in practice.
- We have strong deadlines and work hard. But we detest death marches. We prefer a sustainable pace and a good work-life balance.
- Whatever the work, we all love the challenge, and share the fun of learning new stuff and celebrating failure and success together.
- We welcome non-EU members and soon a recognized sponsor by IND.
