We are looking for a Senior Java Engineer to join our rapidly growing FinTech project. You will be a key player in the design, coding, testing and deployment of technical output.
Our mission is to modernize finance by mobilizing assets at the speed of the internet. Paxos is building a future where all assets–from money to gold to securities–will be digitized and move instantaneously, 24/7. Settlement risk will cease to exist, so trillions of dollars of trapped capital can go to work in a global, frictionless economy.
What is required?
- Significant exposure to React.js, Redux in production environments
- Solid understanding of core engineering concepts
- Strong understanding of Data Structures and Algorithms
- Comfortable taking ownership of projects and showcasing key accomplishments
- Great written and verbal English skills
- Ability to understand and articulate the design and architecture of the entire system.
What will be a plus?
- Backend experience: Java, Node.js, C#;
- Familiarity and comfort with command-line applications, source control, testing frameworks and other aspects of developing in large, distributed software teams;
- Knowledge of (and a passion for) current trends and best practices in front-end architecture, including performance, accessibility, security and usability.
What we offer:
- Good compensation package, highest salaries on market;
- Interesting projects and challenging tasks;
- Comfortable work schedule;
- Zero bureaucracy;
- Friendly team with great corporate culture and mentorship (visit us and see it yourself);
- US democratic management style;
- Opportunities for self-realization, professional and career growth;
- Corporate events and activities;
- Professional seminars and training, professional studying.
What you will do:
- You will produce a work output by taking a complex user story, breaking it down into sub-tasks, and completing the sub-tasks with relative ease – own design, coding, testing all the way through deployment of each of those sub-tasks;
- You will identify and proactively tackle technical debt before it grows into something that requires significant up-front work to resolve. A rule of thumb is to start looking into root cause of issues whenever there is noise. There is no smoke without fire;
- You will strike the right balance between fixing the problem at hand and focusing on finding the root cause of problem. For example, if it’s a production issue the priority is to fix the immediate problem and collect all the data necessary for root cause analysis. In a non-production environment, the focus should be on finding the root cause and fixing it the right way to make sure the problem doesn’t occur again;
- You will be actively involved with and mentor junior engineers doing code reviews resulting in up leveling the skill sets for the entire team.
