WHO WE ARE
We’re a tech-first scale-up regarded as one of the hottest payments fintechs in London. Founded in 2016, our cloud-native payments platform is used by over 25 of the most exciting and disruptive banks and fintechs in the world including N26, Holvi, Viva, Tandem and Ebury.
WHAT IT'S LIKE TO WORK HERE
Building greatness in a disruptive era requires strong ambition, talent, curiosity, diversity of thought and a belief that we’re better together. We want our employees to grow whilst with us so we’ve created an environment that encourages everyone to learn, challenge each other and create extraordinary experiences for themselves, their colleagues and our customers. We are continually on the lookout for talented people from all backgrounds that can further contribute to this amazing culture.
OUR TECHNICAL ENVIRONMENT
Our Engineering Team consists of over 45 Senior Engineers that are responsible for the end-to-end ownership of our platform, from architecture through to infrastructure. Individually they are all exceptional at what they do, but by working collaboratively within a team, consistently applying best-practice and automating absolutely everything they are able to build world-class software for our customers.
We don’t mind whereabouts our Developers are based as we are happy for our team to work from anywhere in the UK or EU, with most of them choosing to work remotely most of the time. That being said, we do also have London and Amsterdam offices, so should they ever wish to work from these, they are most welcome.
THE TOOLS WE USE
It’s very much a “best tool for the job” mentality at Form3 and our tech-stack is continually evolving but to give you a flavour of what we’re currently working with here are some of the tools we use;
Languages: Go (and some Java, Python, Ruby)
Tools: Kubernetes, Terraform, Docker, Vault, Consul, Linkerd, AWS: SQS, SNS, EC2, RDS
Methodologies: Agile, Scrum, Kanban, TDD, BDD, Pair-Programming
THE SKILLS WE'RE LOOKING FOR
Whilst experience of the above technologies would be nice, it is by no means essential. We are looking to speak with well-rounded, Senior Software Developers who have a breadth of experience across a variety of programming languages, have an understanding of distributed systems and cloud computing alongside an appreciation of automation and the DevOps culture. Candidates should also value the importance of code quality and software development best-practice, whilst being passionate about technology and enjoy working collaboratively within a team.
HOW WE HIRE
Our hiring process varies depending on the role and the candidate, but this should give you an idea of the steps you should expect to follow:
+ Phone screen with Talent Team (30-45 minutes)
+ Take home assignment written in Go (approx. 4-8 hours)
+ Technical interview with 3 members of the Engineering Team via video-link (1 hour 30 minutes)
