Did we mention we have offices in 18 countries? Yes, when you join IG Group, you'll have the chance to work across multiple brands, with people all over the world. Join us for an exciting future and let’s innovate together!


Senior TypeScript Developers with AWS/Lambda, come and join the game-changers!

Work with the BFF teams that are developing on our AWS gateway, building underlying services, and overseeing the integrations with third parties. This is a unique opportunity that will give the successful candidate a rare experience to design and build services and integrations that support our mobile experience and ensure they run seamlessly in Production.


What you will do:

As a Senior TypeScript Engineer within the BFF/Trade Execution Team, you'll take ownership of your work from elaboration to delivery. You'll take requirements, develop and extend solutions, test them, and work with our stakeholders to deliver them.


This will include:

  • Designing and coding solutions to meet these requirements
  • Delivering high-quality support and assurance as the work is rolled out
  • Taking ownership of projects end to end, whilst learning and innovating
  • Overseeing the design and implementation of cloud-based solutions
  • Ensure that teams engage in the roadmap process and deliver to their commitments
  • Interacting with other Senior Developers and Architects to analyse needs and requirements
  • Support the TL by upholding high standards of modern engineering practices, quality, and attainment
  • Collaborating with other cross-function teams and their Team Leads whilst making use of the Agile development life cycle
  • Guiding and mentoring team members, managing project timelines and resources
  • Ensuring adherence to best practices and security standards, and collaborating with stakeholders to deliver scalable and efficient cloud architectures


Who you are:

An experienced Senior Developer with 6+ years of coding experience, most recently in TypeScript who has worked in an AWS environment (ideally with Lambda) and possesses an excellent understanding of APIs, Gateway, and building Restful services. Developer evangelists with a focus on effective practices such as pair programming, TDD, CI/CD, etc. are critical to our build and must enjoy working in fast-paced mission-focussed environments, with fast-changing priorities.

 

Must have skills:

  • Proven Senior Development TypeScript experience.
  • Broad AWS experience that is sufficient to collaborate with our Architect and build components effectively, specifically with Serverless technologies. Note, that Kubernetes is not required.
  • Experience with most of the following AWS components (or significant depth in a few): API Gateway, Lambda, SAM, ECS, EC2, SNS, S3, CloudFront, Dynamo DB, CloudWatch, Kinesis, and SQS.
  • Experience of DevSecOps concepts
  • Experience in Agile development methodologies and release management techniques
  • Experience using telemetry and observability to troubleshoot production issues


How you’ll grow:

When you join IG Group, we want you to have more than a job – we want you to have a career. And you can. If you spot an opportunity, we want you to chase it. Stretch yourself, challenge your self-beliefs, and go for the things you dream of. With internal and external learning opportunities and the tools to help you skyrocket to success, we’ll support you all the way.

And these opportunities truly are endless because we have some bold targets. We plan to expand our global presence, increase revenue growth, and ultimately deliver the world’s best trading experience. We’d love to have you along for the ride.


The perks:

It really is more than a job. We’ll recognise your talent and make sure that you can still have a life – at work, and outside of it. Networks, committees, awards, sports and social clubs, mentorships, volunteering opportunities, extra time off… the list goes on.

  • Flexible working hours & hybrid working 
  • Home office equipment reimbursement  
  • Performance-related bonuses
  • Private medical cover for you and your family/partner (Medicover)
  • Multikafeteria system (you can choose a multisport card, vouchers, etc.) 
  • Life insurance (Generali) 
  • Employee-led LGBTQ+, Women’s, Black, and Parents & Carers networks with an annual budget for organizing events & projects that foster an open, diverse, and inclusive culture  
  • Career-focused technical and leadership training in class and online, incl. unlimited access to LinkedIn Learning platform
  • Well-being events as well as the Employee Assistance Programme
  • Summer picnic, New Year party, and other social events  
  • 3 additional days off a year - 1 to celebrate your Birthday and 2 for voluntary work 😊


Where you’ll work:

We follow a hybrid working model; we reckon it’s the best of both worlds. This model also feeds into our secret ingredients for innovation: diversity, flexibility, and close connection. Plus, you’ll be welcomed into a diverse and inclusive workforce with a lot of creative energy.


Ask our employees what their favourite thing is about working at IG, and you’ll hear an echo of ‘our culture’! That’s because you can come to work as your authentic self. The things that make you, you – like your ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith, age, gender identity/expression, or physical capacity – can bring a fresh perspective or new skill to our business.

That’s why we welcome people from various walks of life; and anyone who wants to help us realise our vision and strategy.

So, if you’re keen to connect with our values, and lead the charge on innovation, you know what to do.
