Big site. Technology product driven within a financial context

You’ll find yourself working for a big organised team. Your role is technology delivery design, build, evangelism, R&D; you’ll find a tech team that controls the how’s and whys of delivery in this environment.

This team is respected; you’ll work with strong, highly intelligent people who know their stuff. Business places great stock in what your team has to say.

You will find some pressure; this is highly visible, enterprise build. The opportunities you’ll have to work on new tech, innovative product & with industry leaders is great.

You are a bit of a propeller head. You dig coding but coding with influence. You enjoy environments that are doing things few have done before.

You enjoy environments that are prepared to quickly adopt new tech or concepts.

After that description, most are surprised at who the brand is. This is not a start-up, this is big time Fintech.

What we are hoping to see from you :

  • Senior or Veteran level Development skills 8 / 10 / 12 years plus experience. (I have rates that can accommodate serious Vet status beyond 15 years even)
  • Experience influencing large scale product, ideally within Fintech but that domain exp is not essential
  • You are a professional Technologist. You are a solutionist not a mindless labourer
  • You are prepared & able to contribute logical opinion. You are open to constructive, intelligent criticism & debate
  • You own what you produce
  • The tech we want to see from you :

  • At least competent C# skills
  • We are open to Polygot types who have done some C# but it hasn’t been your core
  • We are obviously open to strong C# specialists
  • We do need extensive backend skills.

    REST, EF, SQL Server (or similar, they’re using some Mongo, there is some Informatics in places, a tiny amount of Oracle)

    Micro services, Docker, CQRS

    Any Cloud experience would be useful but not essential.

    Any combination of Azure or Amazon

    Your real pleasure in life is the deep nut and bolts type work. You’re used to building high transactional or low latency type platforms.

    Rates are variable. Client will hire perm which comes with medical and pension. They’re very happy to bring on board contractors but they will ask for long term commitments.

    Rate availability range from Developer level rates at between R650k and R750k or R400 / hr up to R500 / hr.

    At senior Dev level where you are starting to play an influential hand in the thought processes behind the code, we have between R750k and R900k ctc or R500 up to R600 per hour.

  • As we starting heading over those rates, the expectations on the hand you play in delivery do increase. At the most senior levels, where people are playing leadership level architecture, design and code type roles;
  • we have placed as high as R1.2m per annum or R700 / R750 per hour.

    Note though, even at those levels, the value to them is in the ability to deliver advanced code. These are not managerial jobs.
