Senior Software Engineer

Join a truly amazing team, revolutionising the world of investments!

Wealthify is an ambitious, multi-award-winning online investment company located in Penarth, Wales. We’re here to inspire anyone to build their future wealth, and we do this by making investing easy, affordable, and accessible.

We want to inspire as many people to invest as possible. We’re rapidly growing, and so we’re hiring talented people who are purpose driven and want to use and develop their skills to deliver an awesome experience to our customers.

Our team is engaging, inquisitive, and inclusive, reflecting many different beliefs and backgrounds.  We welcome people who can bring diversity to our team, and work towards a shared goal to deliver an exceptional investment experience.

What your job will be

You’ll be working as a software engineer in a cross-functional squad of designers, product, engineers, and testers, to deliver new products and features. Squads develop and own features end-to-end, so you’ll have opportunity to work across a wide range of technologies, across web, mobile apps, API, backend, and databases. We’re hosted in Microsoft Azure and take advantage of cloud technologies to ensure our platform is secure, fast, and scales to meet demand.

All team members participate in architecture and design choices, sprint planning and code reviewing; and tech leads are on hand to coach and mentor others. We write high quality, high performance, scalable code, and release small and often, using Git and Azure DevOps. Developers all contribute to code reviews, knowledge sharing and continuous improvement.

Ideally you will be familiar with cloud, agile and DevOps practices, but if not, there is opportunity to learn.

What we’re looking for

We value simplicity, communication, teamwork, trust, and confidence. These core values are what make us tick and keep us all on the same page - not just with how we work individually, but how we engage with each other and the service we offer.

We don’t need you to tick all these boxes (in fact we’d encourage you to apply even if you don’t!), but this gives you an idea of what we are looking for:

  • Experience as a software developer with web or app experience, or both
  • Good analysis and problem-solving skills
  • Effective communicator
  • Attention to detail
  • Advocate of code quality, clean code, and best practice
  • Microsoft stack (C#, .NET Core, SQL, Azure)
  • Experience of test-driven development (unit testing, mocking, integration testing)
  • Familiarity with Agile/Scrum or cross functional teams
  • Understanding of DevOps practices (CI & CD)
  • Familiarity of Cloud environments (e.g., Azure)
  • Mentoring/coaching/team working

What we give you in return

Competitive salary up to £60,000

24 days holiday a year – plus bank holidays (you will earn an extra day holiday for each full year you’re with us, up to 28 days)

Due to the pandemic, we are currently working from home, and all interviews will be carried out remotely.  Our offices have recently been refurbished to allow for collaborative working once we can return, although there is scope for remote working where the role and team deliveries allow.

And we have plenty of perks too!

  • Annual bonus between 0-20% of your annual salary which is linked to both the company and individual performance
  • Private Medical Insurance
  • Death in Service Cover (X3 your annual salary)
  • Income Protection Insurance
  • Company Pension Plan
  • Healthify – a team to support the health and wellbeing of all staff at Wealthify  
  • Ministry of Fun – providing plenty of social activities and events throughout the year
  • Brand new offices in the picturesque Penarth Marina
  • Free office gym
  • Free parking nearby
  • A collaboration space and games room
  • We’re a responsible company and are constantly working to improve our culture, ethics, impact on the environment, and our contribution to charitable causes
