To customers and partners, you are the expert liaison with a keen feel for their needs, and an eye for creative solutions. So besides being a great technician, you are also a considerate companion who delivers remarkable results on a continuous basis. In this heavily client-facing role, you apply your deep expertise wherever it is needed, from deep-dive technical workshops to board-level sales presentations. Having earned your stripes in designing modern, enterprise-scale architectures, you have no problem finding the scope in large-scale, complex projects.
  • Minimum 10 years enterprise IT experience;
  • Minimum 5 years dedicated Financial Services industry experience, including:
  • You have created multiple solutions for financial services organizations (banks preferred, ideally >= $10B AUM)
  • Expert-level knowledge of the banking vendor landscape in the US and Canada for both Retail and Business/Corporate banking solutions (Core vendors, FinTechs, Payment processors, Loan Origination systems, Credit Card servicers, IAM/IDM, etc)
  • You are well-informed on current trends in digital banking and can speak confidently on what banks need to be prepared for in the next 5-10 years.
  • Your knowledge of the Java platform exceeds our expectations;
  • Experienced in Spring, Maven and Jenkins;
  • Experienced in cloud deployments and the tools of modern cloud architecture, such as Docker, Kubernetes, Ansible, Kafka, Redis, etc.;
  • Demonstrable understanding of Service Oriented Architectures (SOA);
  • Demonstrable understanding of Micro-Services Architectures;
  • Knowledgeable in JavaScript/TypeScript and other modern web technologies such as Angular, React, Bootstrap, Node/NPM, etc.;
  • Practical application of MVC patterns and principles of REST APIs, ideally including RAML and/or OpenAPI, are second nature to you;
  • You have professionally worked with Enterprise Integration Patterns and frameworks that implement them;
  • And let’s not forget your broad, operational knowledge of cloud infrastructure, application servers, databases, load balancers and other infrastructure components required to deploy web and mobile applications in a highly available and scalable environment;
  • Last but not least, you have excellent communication and presentation skills in English.

  • We will be extra happy if you:
    - Have experience with Portal/Web Content Management solutions;
    - Are well-versed in Microsoft/.NET technologies in addition to Java;
    - Have mobile app development experience and understand the unique challenges of building and deploying mobile solutions;
    - Are familiar with advanced architectural patterns, such as Microservices, CQRS, and event sourcing.
