This will help us create new, and improve existing, products and services to help us really make a difference to our customers.

Job Description

A Lab is a co-located team who work together on key projects to deliver value at pace by designing services that people find useful, easy and engaging to use. Typically, a Lab has a strong focus on complex problem solving in an agile environment where engineers are free to experiment and create innovative products which will transform the way our customers engage with us.

We have labs working across various different product areas including Financial Planning & Retirement, Protection, Insurance and Wealth. You'll have the opportunity to find out more about our projects throughout the process.

About the role:
Joining us as a Full Stack Engineer you'll play a key role in shaping the way we design, build, test and deploy using cutting edge technology.

You'll enable us to:

  • Launch new financial products
  • Extend the functionality of our existing web and mobile applications to attract and retain customers
  • Integrate 3rd party APIs to our products and services
  • Secure, update and maintain multiple content repositories
  • Build responsive web pages using frameworks/tools such as Bootstrap, Flow and React


You'll be part of a cross-disciplinary Lab team in addition to being a highly valued member of our wider Engineering team. As part of these teams you'll demonstrate and apply exemplary software engineering practices and skills, whilst working in a collaborative and agile environment.

You'll learn new skills, technologies and approaches to software development as well as benefiting from a culture that celebrates diversity, equal opportunity and provides opportunities for flexible working.

Here's where you'll make a difference:
  • You'll write modular, well tested applications that remain easy to maintain as the codebase and business continues to scale.
  • You'll contribute to setting the strategic direction for how applications are developed within the team.
  • You'll ensure software is built in a way that is consistent with the frameworks, patterns and practices that exist across the wider engineering community.
  • You'll understand and apply industry innovation, and the sharing of knowledge to provide solutions for complex business problems where no precedent may exist, and ensure the implementation of solutions where appropriate.
  • You'll mentor and develop your colleagues, providing clear and constructive feedback, whilst creating opportunities for learning and growth.
  • You'll also ensure applications are fast, secure and work across all manner of devices.
What we need from you:
  • You'll have an understanding of the entire application stack, deep and broad knowledge, and significant exposure to modern web technologies, especially JavaScript (ideally Node.js and REACT.js) as well as RESTful APIs and web services.
  • You'll have a deep understanding of Git, source code management and managing change.
  • You'll know about agile development practices, continuous integration and test automation (TDD, BDD, Selenium)
  • You'll also have an understanding of how to design low-latency, high-availability and performant applications.

If this is you, come and join our inclusive, values-led culture focused on making a difference.

Together we'll make it possible...

So what can we offer you in return?
Whatever your aspiration, you can also expect excellent benefits, personal development and a career that's enriching and full of opportunity.

You'll also receive a package that includes
  • Car or car allowance of up to £4,080 per year
  • Discretionary bonus between 15-30% of base pay
  • Cash sum of 4% which you can exchange for a variety of benefits or simply take the cash
