At Zopa, we’re shaping the future of finance.
We offer simple loans and smart investments that help people take control of their finances and do more with their money. In the 12 years we’ve been in business, we’ve helped more than 60,000 people lend over £2.8 billion to 300,000 UK consumers.
And our journey’s only just beginning. In November 2016 we announced our plans to build a next generation bank so that we can bring a greater range of smart, ethical finance products to even more people.
This role is based in our new office in Barcelona, working side-by-side with the teams in our London office.
Zopa has now more than 320 people in London, 15 people in Barcelona and growing - we want to double this by the end of the year!
We are building the bank of the future with cutting edge technologies and are looking for Software Developers to build brand new micro-services in Java deployed through Kubernetes in Amazon AWS. Utilising Kafka and Kafka Streams, creating the scalable backbone that powers the growth of the company. On the front-end side, we are using React Js and React native to encourage code reuse and make sure we can give a great experience to both our Android and iOS users from the beginning - definitely not your regular bank!
You will be working in a small, agile and adaptable cross-functional team, built on the Tribes and Squads model, and utilising Kafka and Kafka Streams to build a resilient, scalable backbone that powers the growth of the company. You can expect to interact with stakeholders and key business users daily. We are big believers in a lean philosophy and flexibility in implementation, while aiming to achieve stack consistency and alignment across the board. All of our Java infrastructure is deployed with Docker/Kubernetes when we need to via CI (Jenkins) and a completely automated test suite.
Here is some of the Tech Stack you will be working with: Java 8, Kafka, React, React-Native, Kubernetes, Docker, Jenkins, RabbitMQ, Redis, Babel just to name a few.
We are committed to equality of opportunity for all staff and applications from individuals are encouraged regardless of age, disability, sex, gender, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage and civil partnerships.
