Description

Blockchain technology is revolutionising the way individuals and organisations interact with each other. And Quant is leading this revolution. We’ve already developed the world’s first blockchain operating system (OS) that not only interconnects blockchains but also legacy networks to blockchain. Now, we’re building on this platform (called Quant Overledger) to help governments, organisations and individuals across the globe benefit from the true potential of an incredibly powerful technology.  With Overledger, processes in every sector, from Financial Services to Healthcare provision, become faster, safer and more cost-effective. Headquartered in W.London, Quant Network is a member of the Oracle global start-up ecosystem, and an Amazon AWS partner.

 

It’s an exciting mission: developing a technology that is truly changing the way the way the world connects. But it’s challenging, too. Which is why we’re looking to expand our development team with experienced developers. We need the support of people who not only share our vision, but who are intellectually flexible and tenacious; people who revel in problem-solving. People who can think laterally and challenge norms.

 

Successful candidates will work as part of a highly-able and close-knit team on a mixture of platform enhancements, customer solutions, and research & development activities. Our core technologies are based around a micro-services architecture orchestrated in a containerised environment.

 

 

Key skills

  • Experience in Linux (Alpine/Ubuntu), Docker, Kubernetes, AWS (S3, RDS, EC2, ECS, ELB), Jenkins
  • Inter-site/cloud/on-prem networking configuration (including use and configuration of IPSEC over VPN)
  • Experience with continuous integration and deployment processes and working on both greenfield and existing architectures (including strong Git, GitHub experience)
  • Good written and verbal communication and interpersonal skills
  • Knowledge of security and disaster recovery best practices for enterprise grade solutions
  • 5+ years commercial experience of DevOps/Infrastructure engineering (preferably in financially regulated businesses such as the Banking or Insurance market)
  • Ability to rapidly understand & document an existing process and provide actionable improvements in the short and medium term.

 

 

 

Useful skills/experience

 

  • Knowledge of at least one of: R3 Corda/Hyper Ledger Fabric/Ethereum and/or demonstratable interest in DLT/Blockchain or related technologies and business applications
  • Knowledge of any of RabbitMq, EMS, Kafka, MongoDB/Stitch
  • Exposure to test-driven and behaviour-driven development, test automation, secure by design approaches
  • Exposure to large scale, high volume, highly distributed systems
  • Involvement in open source development

 

 

Personal strengths

  • A self-starter, efficient and innovative
  • An original thinker
  • An enthusiastic and able problem-solver
  • Enthusiastic team player with the ability to lead where appropriate
  • A keen learner with a strong desire to upskill in a variety of software development techniques

 

The rewards

Not only will you be working with a small, but rapidly growing, team, in one of the most genuinely exciting – and challenging – areas of technology today, but we are committed to the philosophy of CPM (continuous performance management). This not only helps us to develop team performance that will keep us at the leading edge of the technology, but ensures that every employee has the opportunity to maximise personal development and career growth. We also offer competitive salary, and an agile working environment.

 

At Quant Network, we’re looking for people who see things differently, are intellectually agile, inquisitive and curious, and who are instinctive collaborators. If you think this sounds like you, then we’d like to hear from you.
