Job description

The role

Currently our technology hub of 30+ Engineers are located in Skopje, along with our CTO. But in the wake of the successful launch of our product, we are now accelerating development in line with our overall growth plans. 

We are building a world class Engineering function here in London to complement our existing team in Skopje. To do this we need to hire a number of mid to senior level Software Engineers to act as the core of this new team, led by our newly appointed London based VP of Engineering. 

What about you?

There are many definitions as to what makes a great Engineer and even what word best describes the job - Developer, Programmer? If you’re the sort of person who identifies themselves as a Software Engineer - someone who enjoys developing a breadth of skills instead of being a specialist and has a deep hunger to learn - then we want to hear from you!

‘Relevant experience’ can be a pretty broad term, but below are some criteria we value highly:

  • 5+ years of professional experience
  • Strongly typed language experience: Typescript preferred, but not essential. Others that are easy to convert from: Java, C#, Scala, especially if coupled with JavaScript experience
  • CompSci or technical education to degree level, but if not, then strong technical experience in previous roles
  • Strong demonstration of ‘quality first’ software engineering process experience: code review, Test Driven Design (TDD), automated unit/integration test, CI / CD systems
  • Design and Analysis experience
  • Been part of agile delivery teams (Scrum a bonus)

Bonus experience would include:

  • Amazon Web Services experience (AWS) preferred, other cloud providers Google Compute Engine / Azure would be easy to convert from
  • Been part of SaaS product engineering teams
  • 1 or more senior roles at different companies
  • Distributed systems experience
  • Node.js ecosystem experience nice to have

For senior candidates we would also be looking for:

  • 8+ years of professional experience
  • Demonstrated leadership in previous role(s) - this is technical leadership, but if there is genuine evidence of line management experience that is a bonus
  • Amazon Web Services experience (AWS) essential
  • Node.js ecosystem experience essential
  • Distributed systems knowledge. 

Why join?

  • Work alongside and collaborate with leaders in banking, law and tech, who are not only seriously smart but are also genuinely fun!
  • Have an impact in shaping a business - we have a blank slate, help us create an Engineering function which is not only building truly exciting things, but is also a fun place to be!
  • Collaborative and transparent culture - feel empowered to come up with your own ideas and actually make them happen
  • Stock options
  • Flexible working - everyone who works at H4 is trusted to get the job done, so work when you want, where you want!
  • Regular team socials
