What we do?

At (“Fire”) we help businesses access payment services and automate payment processes.

The Fire API enables our clients to automate their account, card and payment processes.

What is the role?

We are seeking a mid-level Java developer to join our team. This role is very different from a typical corporate’s where the work could be quite narrowly focused.

• Create and manage data architectures, develop database queries 

• Write unit and integration tests – we do a lot of those(!)

• Contribute to the engineering process improvements

• Learn on the job and find solutions to challenges (we love a can-do attitude) 

• Find better ways to do things, never accept ‘that’s just how it’s done’

What should you have?

• BSc/MSc degree or equivalent in Computer Science or related discipline 

• Experience in the financial services domain

• 5+ years experience with Java and the Spring Framework, along with SQL, NoSQL, JavaScript HTML, CSS

• Exposure to the AWS or Azure-based IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS offerings

• Experience with microservices patterns would be a plus

• Knowledge of API gateways, Tomcat, Maven, Jenkins, and other CI/CD tools

• Knowledge of OWASP

• Ability to articulate your reasoning and solutions to colleagues – practice the art of communication

• Must hold an EU passport or Stamp 4 visa 

• Available for work from the office 3 days per week

Our selection process includes technical tests, competency-based technical interview, and team interviews. Understanding our business context can be helpful.

As a member of the team you will be contributing to the development of new and innovative fintech solutions – working with an experienced team, you will have the opportunity to make an impact.

What else?

You will be joining a fast-growing established fintech business with offices in Dublin and London. You will have the opportunity to learn, develop and make an impact. In addition to offering a competitive salary and commission scheme we will provide you with a great place to work, engage and take responsibility for delivering compelling financial services products.
