Job Description

Excellent opportunity to join an already impressive team. A potential career maker for a talented engineer. Feel free to reach out to me directly on LinkedIn for a confidential discussion

This Client is building the next generation of capabilities that powers our merchant-first ecosystem. The radical and responsible delivery of value is our mandate. We believe that focused and empowered teams can do great things.

You'll find that we're a curious, driven, and pragmatic bunch who believe in outcomes over outputs, and we're looking for like-minded individuals to join us on our journey.

What we're obsessive about:

  • Small teams, big things: We'll convey the outcomes our merchants require, provide you with the support and tools to succeed, and then we let you work your magic, with no needless processes to get in your way.
  • Develop, grow, thrive: We promote a philosophy where you can develop and grow as an individual and team. We encourage you to approach problems in unique ways, try new techniques, learn from your colleagues and master your craft.
  • Real people, real problems: We develop solutions to solve real-world challenges faced by our merchants. Our Team Members collaborate to build the right things the right way. We are curious about how things work, and we believe that sharing ideas and insights leads to better, more innovative products.

  • Identify critical activities & tasks on projects, help with estimation and planning, ensure timely and accurate communication of status, resolution of issues, and contribute beyond assigned tasks - adjusting priorities when appropriate.
  • Develop systems using efficient, secure and clear code following industry and company standards.
  • Assist with software deployment activities to internal test environments and our production data centres - the team is responsible for Requirements Analysis through to Release.
  • Be proactive, self-motivated, attentive to detail, with the ability to work well under pressure.
  • Be a team player and role model, exhibiting a professional attitude, building work relationships, demonstrating flexibility, and supporting workplace ethics.

  • Strong analytical, problem-solving, and organisational skills.
  • Proven experience translating Business Requirements into solutions.
  • Aware of the applicability of new technologies.
  • Must be proactive, self-motivated, attentive to detail, and able to work well under pressure.
  • Excels at grasping existing code and identifying opportunities to improve and to integrate with existing code.
