Ruby Developer (Remote)


Ruby Developer, FinTech start-up, Remote

Salary £DOE

I am working with a Fintech start-up who have grown their users to 80,000 in 2 years with a goal to reach 1 million by the end of 2020, and become the leading provider of account services to the younger generation.

With a small team in both London and Poland they are looking for an addition location for a brand new, cross functional team. The founder went to University in Bristol so he has a soft spot for our amazing city; I mean he's only human.

Therefore, I am looking firstly to build a team of Ruby Developers, ideally 2 Senior Engineers at first, then to bring in 4/5 developers and build a team around you over the next 12 months. Until they have enough developers to open an office, these first 2 roles will be fully remote, however you will need to be based in the South West for the imminent opening of the Bristol office at the end of the year, maybe earlier.

What you will be doing:

  • Building their platforms, systems and big data infrastructure.
  • Involved in code review, design discussions, and continuous improvement.
  • Contribute to design and development efforts
  • Work closely with a cross-functional team both in London and Poland.
  • Help drive and bring innovation and improvement into the existing and the new team.


  • A good background using Ruby and Rails
  • Good understanding of micro service-based design.
  • OOP, SOLID and CleanCode principles
  • TDD practices
  • Fluidity in operating Unix-based systems.
  • Implementing and integrating with HTTP APIs.
  • Good understanding of Messaging Queue Protocols, would be nice.

I am planning interviews over the next 2 weeks, if this is of interest please give me a call to find out more. (Apply online only)
