Please discuss the working pattern requirements for the role you are applying for with the hiring manager.

•    Designing re-usable components/libraries for both front and back ends – part of the Dart platform development process
•    Helping in the evolution of the Dart platform with new tools, libraries etc
•    Taking ownership for managing risk and strengthening controls in relation to the work you do

What we’re looking for:
•    Solid software development experience in python is essential
•    Data engineering and data orchestration experience with python and its associated libraries – pandas, numpy, dagster
•    Experience designing data or analytics micro services using python FastAPI 
•    Experience of building production quality infrastructure

Skills that will help you in the role:
•    Experience in front-end web development (ReactJS, Javascript/Typescript, HTML, CSS), designing micro services (ReactJS, node.js

•    Experience of cloud technologies is desirable (docker, kubernetes, AWS, elastic compute)
•    Solid grasp of Software development lifecycle, experience with tools such as Git, Jenkins, and familiarity with DevOps practices, such as CI/CD

Where will you be working?
Our Prague office is based in the financial centre of Prague.  We are part of the Operations and Technology Division, and as such, we try our best to stay at the top of our technological game. However, the technology itself is not the most important thing. What matters the most to us is the way our ingenuity can help provide better service to our customers and make life easier for our employees.
