Proprietary software solutions and innovation are at the core of what differentiates Citco in the alternative investment space. Through our network of global development centres, Citco invests heavily in technology development, security, and infrastructure to ensure our clients continue to receive award-winning products that underpin our commitment to service excellence.

As a core member of our Private Equity IT team you will work with dedicated professionals to ensure our clients maintain access to their critical information assets while keeping Citco ahead of industry trends.

You will be working in a cross-functional team, using agile methodologies to build and support an AWS cloud native application for the financial services industry. We are looking for developers with great communication skills and lots of experience with NodeJs and React.

The project is 3 years old and in active development for the foreseeable future. We have strong test automation in place from unit testing to end to end browser testing. Most of the work is new development with occasional refactoring and support needed. 

AWS experience is desirable and it’s definitely a differential, but not a requirement and something we can help you develop.

Your Role:

  • Design and develop backend code using Node.js
  • Develop re-usable frontend React components and new pages in the application
  • Perform code reviews and ensure the quality of the team’s work
  • Create quality unit tests and maintain test coverage thresholds
  • Communicate directly with the product owner, UX and QA team members
  • Participate and contribute on team activities and Agile Ceremonies
  • Manage AWS resources in a safe and cost-effective manner

About You:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Engineering, Computer Science, or equivalent
  • 8+ years of experience with web application development
  • 2+ years of experience with Node.JS
  • 2+ years of experience with React/Redux
  • Experience designing and developing asynchronous processes using queues
  • Solid understanding and demonstrated proficiency with core software development processes - debugging, code tuning, code management and branching, coding styles and refactoring
  • Must be self-motivated and driven, with strong analytical, problem solving, and communication skills
  • Experience with AWS services such as Lambda, S3, ECS, Cloud formation and IAM is a plus
  • Experience in the financial services industry, especially if related to fund accounting, is preferred
