We're disrupting the world of currency & international money transfer that means flipping a gazillion dollar industry on its head using only real exchange rates and tiny non-hidden-fees. In a nutshell by being fair and transparent. So, if you are an engineer who wants to make a real difference in people's lives by building a cool product and a modern international financial institution from the ground up better than any of the existing ones then search no more. Our (Senior)   Java Engineer  role within our Cherkasy  office is the opportunity you are looking for.    So, what’s the role? As a Java Engineer in TransferWise you will work towards making our product the best that it can be. On one hand you will do this by solving technical puzzles, working on automation, scalability and speed related topics. However, on the other hand, you will do this by figuring out what are the best product decisions based on feedback we get from our great customers. You'll be forced to think how we can get that feedback (and most important how we can get the most relevant feedback), how we can develop our product in such a way in which will boost future development, and how we can maximise and track the impact of our product in the life of our customers.    So, in TransferWise, more than in any other place you'll have the chance to take on the challenge of being a real Product Engineer and not just a coder. And you will do this within a flat organisational structure meaning you'll be someone who is unconcerned with titles and hierarchy. What really excites you is problem solving and delivering innovative technology that makes a real difference in people's lives. TransferWise currently grows at a breathtaking speed and our strong engineering team is the heart of this growth. So to join this great team, we expect from you solid architectural decisions, rock hard integrity, clean code and some other stuff: strong background with JVM, Spring Boot and Spring Cloud preferably experience in Microservices architecture while knowledge of Grails & Groovy will be appreciated as these are currently power all our business logic that's not extracted into Microservices good with MySQL and other database management systems - preferably PostgreSQL Kafka  will be great to have as most of our messaging is done in Apache Kafka Docker, AWS and/or experience with automated testing will be cool things to bring with you  hands-on exposure to Test Driven Development (TDD), A/B testing and Minimum Viable Product (MVP) approaches & concepts  sleeping with a copy of "Clean Code” under your pillow, background within AGILE environments (preferably start-ups) and with FinTech stuff are big pluses    For a sneak - peek into our Engineering world check:  http://tech.transferwise.com/ Cool enough? Then come along, bring your talent and we will empower you to engineer great stuff!     What we will offer you? Apart from the all - expenses - paid company holiday once per year (which is completely insane), you will get a really competitive salary package, stock options in one of Europe’s most hotly tipped startups, a personal development budget, flexible working hours, a sexy laptop, free team lunches and of course, a very cool office. You won’t get much in the way of extras. However, we will give you a fun, friendly atmosphere, plenty of opportunities to grow and the chance to impact people's lives through our revolution.   Some important stuff we would like you to know To meet our regulatory obligations as a licensed financial services company, TransferWise needs to take background checks on all new hires, which may include Criminal and Credit checks.
