Backend Kotlin Developer - £100k-125k - Spread Betting - London

Our client is a leading spread betting company based in central London. They are going through a technical restructure and have recently introduced Kotlin across their entire backend systems. Keen to get the right foundations in place, and transition from a gambling company into an industry-leading tech hub, they are looking to hire at least one senior backend Kotlin developer.

The right candidate will have in-depth understanding of Kotlin and will have the potential to move into a leadership role and further grow out the team. We are less concerned about years of experience, and more concerned about the right attitude and an aptitude to learn quickly. You will be well versed in extreme programming (XP) as well as an advocate for TDD and paired programming. We are looking for a creative and enthusiastic individual to champion best practices and embrace automation wherever appropriate.

The current tech stack is Kotlin, Java, Scala, Kafka, Spring Boot, Git, Gradle and AWS - however you will have a great deal of autonomy to select new tools and technologies.

This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a dynamic and fast-growing company. You will be working to expand our client's trading functionality, developing systems to launch new types of orders, integrating with NASDAQ. You will be part of an ambitious project which has been given priority backing and funding within the organisation. No prior spread betting experience is needed, however candidates must have a proven track record developing complex backend systems in Kotlin.


* Fantastic, modern office to work in with all the expected perks of a start-up company
* Flexible working tailored to get the best out of you
* Fun, collaborative and friendly team, who regularly enjoy going to the pub, eating out or playing board games together
* 25 days paid holiday
* Pension contributions
