Our Mission & Achievements

Trade Ledger is one of the world's leading global lending platforms that manages and transforms digital data in real time, allowing banks and non-bank lenders to assess and regularly update the product offering and the credit risk assessment of businesses they lend to.  We are a global, high-growth B2B enterprise technology provider that simplifies and automates complex lending services.

Our mission is to make commerce simple, by enabling banks and other lenders to address the underserved £1.2 trillion corporate credit market opportunity, particularly for small and medium sized enterprises (SME). We do this by reimagining credit in a digital world - connecting a company’s supply chain digital data to the financial service provider.  Recently, Trade Ledger won the Barclays Innovation Challenge and has been rated as one of the top 25 fintech start-ups in Asia Pacific.

The Role

To continue our success story we are looking for a skilled and enthusiastic Software Development Engineer (Back End) to be a part of our rapidly growing organisation. What you build will directly influence the interactions of the end users and their ability to manage the lending lifecycle easily, both as a lender and a borrower.

As part of a cross-functional squad and working closely with your manager, you will employ leading-edge application development and integration technologies to contribute to the design and implementation of various components in our SaaS platform. 

We use Java/ Kotlin and Javascript/ Typescript across our technical stack so we expect you to be skilled in at least one of the languages and are comfortable in picking up others along the way. We love it if you are already skilled in all the above!  

We practice Scrum and with other agile/ lean techniques. So good communication is key as you collaborate with Product Owners and Product Designers to help flesh out both the functional and non-functional aspects of the product. You actively contribute to the problem solving space and bring your unique perspective to the table.

As someone who is test-infected and passionate about your craft, you know what good design looks like and writes high quality, critical path code, all the way from the UI, to the APIs, and to the database layer. Needless to say you take pride and ownership of end-to-end deliveries and can be counted upon with the management of our Saas platform.

If this sounds like you then we should definitely have a chat.

What you would need:

  • Proficiency in Java 8 and above or Kotlin
  • Strong experience of working with a combination of Spring-boot, AWS, Docker and/ or Kubernetes.
  • Strong understanding of reactive programming and asynchronous systems like Kafka/NATS.
  • Strong NoSQL skills and knowledge of fine tuning database queries.
  • Capable of designing and working to API contracts using either Rest or GraphQL.

What would be nice to have: 

  • Some capability to work Full Stack (Javascript / React)
  • Working knowledge in a Dev/Ops environment.
  • Good understanding of CI/CD pipelines using modern tools like Jenkins, CircleCI, Buildkite or Harness.
  • Experience with webhooks and responsive design.
  • Experience with Frontend and Backend troubleshooting and performance tuning.
