Backend Software Engineer
Mid-level (2-4 years experience)
Experienced backend engineer with extensive Python and Java background. My career so far took me across a few well-known London fintechs that are revolutionising multiple financial sectors. I have extensive experience in engineering data pipelines with tools like Airflow, distributed systems management using Celery and developing software with Python and Java. Most work done using trusty AWS.
Things I have done that I am proud of: worked on optimizing limit order book algorithms for data processing as well as figuring out ways reduce storage costs and improve performance. I worked on a financial exchange developing features for daily trading and writing performant code to speed up executions.
I am extremely passionate about clean, well-tested code. I also care about performance hence am well-versed in data structures and algorithms foundational knowledge. I have solved some problems in business using concepts like Dynamic Programming which is considered obscure but resulted in 10x performance gains.
I am looking for Python backend engineer role. Happy to work with Java as well or pick up cool tech like Go. I am NOT experienced in frontend development hence would be poor candidate for full-stack roles though.
