Back End Software EngineerFundApps

London, Englan 29-12-2023
B Corp
The Engineering team at FundApps is a team of ca. 50 smart, friendly people who collaborate closely and take pride in delivering best-in-class software and providing an extraordinary experience to our clients. We’re solving some of the most challenging problems in financial services - we operate in petabytes and milliseconds, not optimising the upload of cat photos. Our clients use our service for multiple hours a day - what we do as engineers has a real life impact on thousands of people across the globe! 

Our team values are professionalism, sustainability, and psychological safety; we hold each other to high standards, give each other considered and constructive feedback, work smart, and look out for each other. Learn more about our engineering culture here.

The Role
As part of the engineering team, you'll be working on a suite of innovative products that monitor over US$19 trillion in assets under management every single day, used by some of the world's largest Investment Managers. We are looking for Junior to Mid-Level Back End Engineers who can help drive innovation and deliver great software at pace while also keeping sustainability in mind. We need highly motivated, intelligent individuals hungry for a challenge.

At FundApps, you'll see the inner workings of a fast-growing, bootstrapped scaleup where we expect all Engineers to take responsibility for their part in our success, seek support when needed, and care equally about our products and client outcomes as you do about writing code. We solve business problems through technology, not just ship code.

We like keeping our tech stack modern and are not afraid to invest to keep it cutting edge! As such we’ve recently completed major projects which included distributing our main rules engine using AWS services, migrated terabytes of data from SQL server to Aurora Postgres, replaced our Single Sign On service with Auth0 and converted our frontend to React.

Core attributes we look for in FundApps Engineers:

    • #Work-with-purpose: You can articulate the value of your own work in larger projects or team-wide objectives. You have the autonomy to own and deliver solutions and are comfortable working with ambiguity and evolving requirements.
    • #Have-courage: You are comfortable asking for and giving feedback. You help others when needed, and participate in debates, brainstorms, and other team conversations regularly. You build good relationships with your colleagues in Engineering, Product, and the wider company and are able to respectfully challenge each other to understand the problem and come up with the best solutions. As a company, we embrace change and the chance of failure.
    • #Be-transparent: As a company, we value and aspire for transparency at all levels; you’ll provide work updates to communicate regularly about progress and blockers and reach out for help when needed.
    • #Raise-the-bar: You seek out opportunities to improve our code, process, and practices; 1% improvements over time improve things for everyone.
    • #Do-more-with-less: You identify and help implement improvements to processes and standards within the team, seek to optimise our workflow, and share ideas for how to automate manual tasks. As a company we try to minimise meetings (we have meeting-free Wednesdays) and default to asynchronous written communication over long multiple person meetings.
    • Knowledge: You have generalist knowledge of product development concepts (software design, product requirements, work breakdown) and agile practices (TDD, CI/CD, architecture) and can apply them to solve well-defined problems independently and with your team.

Our core technologies (In order of priority):

    • Back-end: C#
    • Data storage: PostgreSQL; Amazon storage including Aurora, DynamoDB, S3
    • Infrastructure: Terraform and AWS, using Fargate, Lambdas, Step functions, and a lot more!
    • Pipeline: GitHub Actions, TeamCity, Octopus Deploy, Serverless
    • Front-end: React, TypeScript
£60,000 - £77,000 a year

We work hybrid and expect new FundAppers to work at our shiny London office 3 days per week during their probation period.

About FundApps
FundApps is a bootstrapped SaaS scaleup that helps investment managers monitor and comply with worldwide regulations. We were one of the world's first "RegTechs" and we're shaking up an entire industry. Our clients love what we do and this has led to phenomenal consistent revenue growth.

Our first area of focus was to help managers with Shareholding Disclosure, a complex regulatory problem without a fit-for-purpose solution in the market. Since that time, our service has become the undisputed market leader with over 130 clients. We have also added new ground-breaking services - Sensitive Industries and Position Limits - and in 2023, introduced Filing Manager, a one click filing service to take our solution to the next level.

Every day, our service monitors a collective US$19 trillion in assets under management on behalf of clients ranging from small US Hedge Funds to French Investment Banks to the largest Sovereign Wealth Fund in the world.

We’re a growing team of 130 FundAppers and over 35 nationalities at last count. We have offices in London, New York and Singapore and remote employees spread across the globe. In 2018, we became a Certified B Corporation and in 2019 were recognised as a B Corp 'Best for the World - Workers' Honoree - highlighting our commitment to doing good by our people.
