WK 2014 Blue on White Email SignatureOur client, White Kite, is a financial risk consultancy and financial software systems developer. It now seeks a Software Engineer with full lifecycle responsibility to spearhead growth to achieve the next stage of its development strategy.

The work is varied. The environment is collegiate, with a focus on rallying to get work done.

Financial institutions turn to White Kite when they face a critical business need – often involving the most challenging constraints. White Kite has an impressive track record of solving pressing and complex problems. The firm enjoys repeat business from its highly satisfied blue-chip clients. It has a excellent reputation in this specialist field.

White Kite develops and deploys highly robust ‘tactical’ applications, subsequently migrating these to enterprise systems. It is a respected, well-established, financially sound and profitable firm.

The Software Engineer will report to the Managing Director and will respond to requests from banks for software solutions to overcome urgent operational problems, often needing resourceful and creative approaches. There will be scope to take product management responsibility.

As jobholder, you will plan, estimate and manage projects and engineer and implement systems and design, write and test code and modules. Often, the work forms part of larger projects, but management of full software lifecycle development projects is also required. You will also work from time to time to implement standard products derived from these client-facing solutions.

A member of a small team of analysts, architects, engineers and developers, you will enjoy significant flexibility in meeting your objectives in this client-facing role. You will programme in a number of languages in projects following various lifecycle styles.

White Kite is based in London, by London Bridge mainline and underground stations. You’ll often work in client offices across London and may from time to time be able to work from home.

To be considered, you’ll need to have a good degree in a numerate subject, or equivalent, supported by training as a software engineer. You’ll need around five years’ experience in professional software engineering with three years spent implementing solutions across the lifecycle. Ideally you should have around 18 months taking systems responsibility, integrating software from several sources.

Whilst the primary importance is understanding and competence in software engineering in general, knowledge in C#.NET, ASP.NET, SQL Server, LINQ, JavaScript, Bootstrap, CSS and HTML and jQuery, angularJS and VBA (Excel and Access) would be helpful.

White Kite offers an excellent salary of £55k, flexible working and an exceptional 28 days’ holiday plus bank holidays. The company operates a profit-related bonus scheme.
