What’s the Job?

TotallyMoney believes that our technology platform can drive a better and fairer credit market for consumers. Today, we’re at the forefront of that revolution and our technology underpins some of the UK’s most sophisticated, forward-thinking financial brands. Since launching in 2009, our comparison technology platform, strategic partnerships and marketing expertise have helped millions of people find the right financial products, make smarter financial decisions and build stronger credit histories.

We’re looking for a backend developer to join our ‘Ducktales’ product team (working on our Cards & Loans platform and lender integrations) and be part of our wider technology department. You'll be helping to build a fairer credit market so you’ll get to work on real products being used by real customers. You'll be given problems you can get stuck into. You'll use modern workflows and tooling.

Our staff surveys show that we're committed to giving all employees autonomy so you can expect the freedom to prioritise your work. You'll be encouraged to maintain quality and be pushed past your own expectations. You'll be exposed to wide a range of tech and won't be restricted to a backend-only role. You'll be working alongside frontend developers using React and the latest JavaScript frameworks. You'll also get the opportunity to work with AWS infrastructure and get to grips with a containerised cloud solution.

Our Principles:

We hold some key principles that guide us on our path to excellence. We believe in continuous integration and automated testing. We believe in domain modelling and ubiquitous language. We believe in logging, monitoring and that if you build it you run it. We believe in containerisation, dev/prod environment parity and disposable infrastructure. We believe in experimentation, continuous improvement and learning from failure. We believe in #noestimates, whiteboarding and great coffee. Our Stack:

We primarily write .net code on the backend. Its a mixture of C# and F# with a desire to increase the latter. We also harness NodeJS where appropriate and have a front-end written in React. Our workflow is entirely command line driven. Our favourite editor is Visual Studio Code but you're welcome to bring your own! We like to experiment with test frameworks and our current suite includes Nunit, Fluent Assertions, SpecFlow, Expecto, FsCheck & Canopy. Our build pipeline is scripted with bash and executed using CircleCI. We take advantage of cloud services provided by AWS including hosting, message queues, relational and non-relational databases. We rely on Loggly to trace application behaviour and often to log business metrics. Whilst it might sound like we have all bases covered, we've got plenty to improve upon which is why we need you

About You:

You’re a problem solver who's curious about new technology. You're aligned with our principles and interested in learning more about functional programming. You're aware of the 12-Factor App approach and want to build cloud-native systems. You're someone who takes ownership and who tries to learn as much as possible. You're both a good listener and able to explain concepts to others. You're committed to improving yourself. You're able to demonstrate interest in technologies that are beyond the scope of your daily workflow. You're lazy, you don't like boring, repetitive tasks and you like to outsource your labour to the compiler. You won't be expected to be have deep knowledge of our stack, but you will be expected to help us make forward strides by applying yourself to learning. Above all, you’re a pragmatist who’s willing to challenge us as well as yourself. What You’ll Get:

Competitive salary, appropriate to your experience On-target bonus scheme 25 days of annual leave (plus 8 bank holidays, and the option to purchase extra) 2 CEO-discretionary days off at Christmas (paid) 2 days off per year (paid) for charity volunteering Access to healthy training budgets 2 annual company socials, plus a regular social calendar throughout the year Quarterly team socials Flexible working hours Vitality Health Insurance and reward scheme (inc. 50% off Virgin Active gyms) Perkbox membership Cycle to Work scheme Free breakfast on Thursdays A well-stocked fridge, plus free fruit, biscuits, bagels, tea, coffee, squash, and more Football, badminton, and video games at lunchtimes Beers, wine, music, and table tennis on Friday afternoons A Bit About Us
