Asto, one of the UK’s high growth Scale Ups, is hiring. Salt have been appointed as an exclusive partner to hire into their Technology, Product, Creative and Marketing teams.

At Asto we’re a fin-tech start-up backed by Santander on a mission to help every small business not only survive but thrive. Imagine having a CFO in your pocket who could not only predict future pitfalls in your cash flow but provide you with relevant financial products tailored to your need and help your business excel even in a challenging and competitive landscape.

The Product:

As the Senior Back-End Engineer, you will help develop server-side components to ensure the platform can deliver functionality, security and performance when scaling. This will deliver a first-class platform which utilises machine learning and artificial intelligence to provide future predictive analysis.

The Opportunity:

  • You will build back-end java services using technologies such as spring or maven
  • You will build a platform with lasting performance and scalability in mind thinking about object oriented programming , micro services and service oriented architecture (SOA)
  • You will deploy in the cloud using AWS and interface with the front end using RESTful APIs and web services such as SOAP.
  • You will have security best practices in mind in everything you deliver
  • Work with Continuous integration tools with git and in a DevOps environment working with BDD and TDD best practices.

Our Environment:

We are based in the new WeWork offices in Liverpool Street in the heart of London with all the modern working facilities you would expect from a cutting-edge start-up backed with Santander’s resources. We have plenty of space to grow and encourage curious thinking and a people who love solving problems.

The Technology:

You will work with Java, HTTP/JSON, RESTful and SOAP. You will also work with a range of technologies such as CI build tools, MongoDB, Maven, Spring, Boot, AWS, Agile, TDD.

About You:

We’re looking for a Senior Back-End Developer who understands what it takes to build a platform opposed to just an application. If you understand the mechanics of working in a start-up where there is lots of change yet happy to work to agile and more test-driven practices then we want to hear from you.

We are a fin-tech company building a regulated product which means if you’ve got a hacker mentality coming from an early stage start-up, this might not be for you. Instead if you understand what it takes to build an architecturally sound mobile product with clean and maintainable code then we want to hear from you for immediate interview.
How to Apply:

Send your CV or online profile accompanied with an example of relevant code (if you have it) and we can start immediately carrying out interviews. Alternatively contact Jamie Dillon direct at to find out more or contact directly on +44 (0) 203 675 5061
