Overview:

Nutmeg is Europe’s leading Digital Wealth Manager, but we don’t want to stop there! We’re in the middle of building a new scalable platform to help us achieve our mission of being the most trusted Digital Wealth Manager in the world.

We are now looking for a Front End focused Technical Architect to own the direction of the architecture for all our customer facing ‘touch-points’ and our mobile apps, byapps, by implementing best practice, and working day to day with our Front-End and Mobile Tech teams

Our Engineering Department, led by our CTPO, Matt Gatrell, is building out our new digital platform. The Team consists of over 70 Engineer's shared across different domain teams. Each engineer has access to a clearly defined Engineering progression ladder to allow them to plan out what they need to do to progress in their chosen career path.

We are migrating our front-end away from Ruby to React, building a microservice environment using Java 8/11, and moving away from Mesos/Marathon to Kubernetes. We are building new Restful API's, refactoring legacy code, and enabling our developers to create clear and clean pragmatic code. We've introduced Kafka, run our systems on AWS, and have built a DevOps team to provide our Engineers with the tools needed to obverse their domain. We have a brilliant Mobile team who maintain an iOS app that has upwards of 10,000 daily sessions, a crash rate of once every 3 months and an Android app that has 9000 monthly users so far, and a 0.026% session crash rate.
