Job Description

What will you do? 

This is a great opportunity to be part of a team that is dedicated to getting it done! You will help minimise bureaucracy, with the pace of a startup within a scaling international business. As a back-end software engineer at Third Bridge, you will support a wide range of projects and people. You will follow best practices and best in class standards, working with and learning from the wider team.

With a ‘bigger picture’ view, you will help to shape the design and build of solutions, in line with architectural strategy.  You’ll work in an Agile environment with colleagues from different disciplines across our Tech and Product department. You’ll network with colleagues from across the whole of Third Bridge and the wider technical community, including external third parties.

Your ‘customer first’ ethos ensures the solutions you create make our business better at meeting the needs of our clients, specialists and internal users.  With a devops approach you create back-end solutions that are coded, tested and have the microservices elements to contribute to multiple products.

This is a great opportunity to put your own stamp on how things are done, aiming for simplicity in solution design. Third Bridge is in an exciting period of change and growth: we’re creating a brand new set of applications, so there’s always something new for you to learn and do, and have a real impact on our business.


What will you bring? 

With your experience in back-end engineering, you’ll bring a balance of technical knowledge and human interaction, ensuring the solutions you design and deploy are in line with business needs.

You’re naturally curious, exploring all the options, and listening to others’ ideas and views. You really understand the power of testing and create your own unit tests to evaluate the back-end solutions you code.

Your technical background as a senior engineer should include:

  • Typescript
  • Node.js
  • Cloud deployment
  • QA - writing unit tests and test automation
  • Any previous work with Terraform, WS, and exposure to other technologies with a ‘tech agnostic’ approach is an advantage to your application.

If you’re looking for a new role where you actually see your impact, work with a dynamic team, and create innovative solutions, then we want to hear from you!
