NodeJS developer ( Contract) – London

We’re looking for a contractor to help us with an integration into a 3rd party service via a REST API. We have an existing solution using AWS lambdas in native Javascript that we’d like to port to a node service. It’s a clean solution with full test coverage, features you’ll need to retain! The service will need to be ported to Node and deployed using Docker on our Kubernetes infrastructure. As such, experience with nodeJS is a prerequisite and experience with docker highly desirable. You may need to port the (abstracted) database implementation from DynamoDB, although no data migration is required.

You’ll need to be a good communicator, coordinating with our platform team to determine how to integrate logging, and how to manage the deployment pipeline.

Once we have our first integration live, you’ll work with our product marketing team to extend the integration.

A bit about you:

  • You’re passionate about technology, product and user experience - customers are at the heart of what you do and that empathy drives your decisions
  • You have an understanding of Scrum and Agile development
  • Your confident working independently and can plan your own solutions to problems
  • Strong nodejs developer with some experience of docker & circleci.

Some extra skills that would be awesome:

  • You have a broad understanding of the concept of minimum viable product (MVP) and conversion rates
  • You might already be a customer :)

A bit about our tech:

On the back end we are working on distributed architecture which is based on Java microservices, using Netflix OSS tools and other distributed technologies like Kafka, Zookeeper, Spring Cloud. While on the front end we are writing microapps using React and AngularJS.

Some important stuff we would like you to know

To meet our regulatory obligations as a licensed financial services company, TransferWise needs to take background checks on all new hires, which may include Criminal and Credit checks. Please discuss with the Recruiter if you have any concerns regarding this process.

At TransferWise we believe in fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace. Therefore, we want to make sure that our recruitment process is accessible to everyone. So if you need any reasonable adjustments – at any point in the process – we’ll do our best to help. Just let us know what you need on your application form or reply with your request to the email we send you after you have applied. You might need a reasonable adjustment if you’ve got a disability. Or maybe you live overseas, and you’d prefer to meet us over Skype.

Please don’t send anything to the adjustments address if you’re a recruiter, or if you’re making a speculative application. We do work with recruiters from time to time – but only through LinkedIn. And we only accept job applications when a position is actually open. So you’re better off just checking the recruitment pages regularly.
