Job Description

Nutmeg is Europe's leading Digital Wealth Manager, but we don't want to stop there. We're continuing to build our platform to help us achieve our mission of being the most trusted Digital Wealth Manager in the world.

Job in a nutshell:

We are now looking for a Front-End Engineer to help us build the next generation of our customer onboarding experience. We are making good progress migrating to a React Micro-frontend architecture and most of your time will be spent working with React.

We have an in-house bespoke Design System to help us scale the UI for white labelling as well as maintaining a collection of solid domain driven web libraries. We are utilizing node.js to migrate away from legacy code and enabling our developers to create clear and clean pragmatic solutions.

We've introduced Kafka, run our systems on AWS, and have built a DevOps team to provide our Engineers with the tools needed to observe their domain. We have built a strong engineering foundation for knowledge sharing with several skill shares, guilds, and open discussions running every month. We brainstorm and work with whiteboards and post-its and collaborate across the entire business to do our jobs.
