Software Architect/Developer (AWS Cloud)

Job description

At Selina Finance, our mission is to let people access the wealth locked up in their homes, and we’re doing that by building a next-generation digital lender – starting with a home equity loan product. More than £2tn equity value is locked up in UK homes, while homeowners still need to rely on high-interest rate consumer loans, credit cards or overdrafts. We believe this is unfair and unnecessary. We offer a financing product unlike anything else out there, one that is as flexible as a current account, as affordable as a mortgage, and as easy to apply for as a consumer loan. If you want to help build an innovative FinTech with us, join our team!

What you’ll do:

  • Help design, shape and deliver a leading Fintech product
  • Contribute to the team's work with high-quality, well-tested and scalable code
  • Develop high class backend code in a service based architecture with high availability and fault tolerance best practices
  • Support the development of the software stack (e.g. code reviews, unit tests, CI) and documentation
  • Work closely with our team to understand our customers needs
