HTML5 Software Developer

FinTech Product Development

Birmingham, West Midlands

Are you a microservices guru?

A web developer with real experience of Object Oriented JavaScript? Laugh in the face of content management template-dabblers who call themselves ‘coders’? We should talk…

Our team at thecitysecret are looking to hire someone with a working, in depth knowledge of HTM5 web technologies like node, angular, bootstrap, Seneca, D3, npm, less, css3 or plain old JavaScript. If you really know your way around one or two of those, and are keen to learn about the rest, then you’d be a perfect fit. 

We don't know everything, so why should you?

Don’t worry if you haven’t got experience in all the technologies above, thecitysecret Academy provides industry-leading training that gives you the opportunity to learn and develop your skills on the job. You’ll be positioned within a smallish team made up of both senior and junior developers, giving you the benefits of learning from experienced coders who have seen it all whilst also allowing you to pass on your knowledge to the next generation of technology innovators. 


Sound like something you’d be interested in? We’d love to hear from you.

"Great, but what will I be doing?"

You’ll be working on the future of financial technology. The UK is currently a world-leader in FinTech development, and thecitysecret is at the cutting edge of creating new software solutions for clients ranging from big banks to family offices and individuals just looking to make money. You will be working with OO JavaScript to develop products that redesign finance and will be used around the world, sometimes in collaboration with our partners in San Francisco. 

This isn’t something we’re just doing for kicks either. Our company has 15 years’ worth of experience in financial software and an incredibly high number of happy customers, so it’s safe to say we know what we’re doing. With that kind of track record, you can rest assured that we have the stability and backing to offer you a risk-free work environment whilst also fostering the exciting energy and creativity of a modern tech start up.     

"What's in it for me?"

This is a great opportunity to work in a rapidly expanding area, with a great team who can offer first class learning possibilities.

We’re working on a number of really interesting projects, and are based in the centre of Birmingham – right next to the canal in Brindley Place, a vibrant location with plenty going on.  With great transport links and a pleasant walk to the recently refurbished New Street station, it is easily commutable from across the Midlands.

We also offer 25 days annual leave, a generous pension scheme with employee contributions of only 5%, a successful ‘bike to work’ scheme and childcare vouchers for those of you with little ones. We also offer those little extras that make the world of difference, like free tea and coffee at work, triple monitor work stations, regular cake days, free fruit (for when you feel guilty about cake day) and the opportunity to participate in local charity events. Oh, and money. Can’t forget that bit.
