Company Description

Since 2007, we develop tailor-made and multi-asset class index solutions for ETFs and other index-linked investment products for the leading global investment banks and asset managers as our clients.

Job Overview

Are you a Front-end Engineer, passionate about the creation of flawless user experiences? Are you thrilled to see your work having an impact on a successful product? Did you grow as a developer in a mixed environment of Front-end and Back-end? Did you already work on scalable, highly available, high-performance services? Do you find it interesting to challenging a legacy system (refactoring/rebuilding), bringing in specific JS-oriented solutions within a backend-dominated environment? Do you bring the right mentality to challenge the status quo while being a sparring partner for our energetic team? Then, it is a match and we need you to drive the development of our internal Front-end solutions.

Your Tasks

  • Focus on the Front-end (90-95%) with solid knowledge of Back-end languages (80% Java, 20% Scala) and a touch of CSS and JS.
  • Maintaining and extending the legacy Front-end of our (micro)service-oriented financial platform for our business operations team, in our Agile User-Interface Team (Play, Java, SBT, Scala Templates), CSS/ LESS w/ Bootstrap, JavaScript /w jQuery).
  • Helping the team extend the new Front-end service proxy – Spring (Java, Maven) and taking a front-row seat in driving our Front-end stack forward, and define company wide standards. Perspectively, we would like to adopt ReactJS as the main FE framework. 
  • Cooperating closely with both developers, QAs and the business teams and participating actively in our agile development processes.
  • Bringing the team forward with a proactive mentality to have an impact on a solid and challenging product.

Your Profile

  • Your focus and passion is to Front-end, where you developed valuable skills during your years of experience. You are able to navigate different frameworks with a preference to ReactJS.
  • You like to be challenged by developing and maintaining large Front-end architectures and complex workflows and you have an excellent understanding of MVC and Dependency Injection principles.
  • Your solid experience in Core-Java enables you to fully understand the Back-end requirements of our current legacy (Spring / Akka / Kafka / RabbitMQ) environment.
  • You are familiar with version control tools (e.g. Git) and CI environments (e.g. Jenkins)
  • Relational databases technologies (ideally JPA, Hibernate, SQL/MySQL) are not alien to you and you navigate confidently through them. 
  • You focus on high-availability, scalability and performance of your code, looking to leave a long-lasting legacy behind. Your familiarity with Scala and SBT are amongst your best tools to achieve these goals. 
  • You tackle it, now: strong analytical skills, effective problem solving mentality, result orientation and excellent team spirit bring you on the path of success together with Solactive.

Our Offer

  • Structured feedback and career cycles to support your further development
  • An attractive salary package with 30 days of annual leave (plus 24th & 31st Dec)
  • Free choice of your gears to work comfortably and effectively
  • The dynamic environment of a start-up culture – with the stability of an established company
  • Get visible and have an impact from day one: we’re a compact firm, and your stakeholders are just an arm’s length away!
  • Become part of Solactive’s success story and our future growth – with a highly motivated and collaborative team
