The role

This position sits in the Product and Engineering area of Railsbank and will report to our CTO. This is a hands-on role, writing code and delivering new tools every day.

The focus of the role is all about making your colleagues' lives easier by developing tools and dashboards that improve productivity, operations, and manage workflows and datasets.

The successful candidate will need to have a broad range of IT / Development skills and have an inquisitive and creative mindset.

It's a real 'fixer-in-chief' job where you will work with across all areas of the company to help improve, design from scratch and automate processes, dashboards and tasks.

Our Core platform is developed in Clojure & Datomic. It is not necessary to know Clojure, as all access to the Core is via REST-like APIs, and so any suitable language which can make API calls can be used for developing tools.

For some investigations, reading Clojure code and logs will be useful, and some tools may be built by querying datomic database directly, so the ability to learn datomic query syntax is an advantage, in addition to strong SQL skills.

Responsibilities include :

  • Collaborate with colleagues across the organisation to understand their needs and to create appropriate tools / solutions
  • To be proactive and innovative with ad-hoc problem solving
  • Respond to user feedback to improve apps and programs
  • Design and develop toolsets to improve business operations, including day-to-day platform management and system reporting
  • Railsbank is growing very rapidly, but remains a small company in which staff are required to contribute to many aspects of their departments’ roles in the wider business.

    The rate of change is very fast, and the role may also require work being undertaken, sometimes at short notice.

    What we look for in your professional skills

    You’re likely to be educated to degree level or equivalent, with excellent communication skills (across all media) and possess the ability to get things done’ in a flexible dynamic organisation without having to rely on line-authority over other team members.

    Must have skills / experience :

  • Ability to 'start small' - to identify and build the tool that will deliver value immediately
  • Rapid understanding of our products, data model, APIs, and existing tools
  • Selection of the appropriate technologies for the problem at hand
  • Good UX understanding - tools need to be approachable by those with less technical understanding
  • Back end development skills - SQL queries, data transformations, feeds and integrations
  • Familiarity with AWS stack
  • Ability and desire to learn and master new and unfamiliar technologies and code
  • Understanding of development practices and design patterns
  • Empathy for people, and the ability to bridge the communication gap, and effectively understand the problem and identify solutions
  • You are a team-oriented person with excellent written and verbal communication skills and are able to talk easily to people at all levels.

    You have good organisational skills and the ability to thrive in a fast moving, dynamic environment that is fun, but serious as well (we are responsible for other people’s money and we take this and our regulatory responsibilities very seriously).

    Role location and hours :

    Unless agreed otherwise the role will be a full time role and you will be based in our London offices.

    What we look for in our team members and our values
