We live in a convenience world where so much of what we want to do is online yet there is still so much we can't or don't want to do. Imagine opening a bank account not in weeks but in minutes, sharing your information in confidence and having control of your personal data and identity.
At The ID Co. our mission is simple. We want to create a layer of trust in the internet that doesn’t currently exist and solve one of the greatest challenges of our digital generation.
We have been on our journey as one of Scotland's leading FinTech start-ups for 5 years now and our platform is a vital component for major financial institutions around the world. With new customers, users and challenges every month - we are growing fast and looking for the best talent to join our engineering team in Edinburgh.
We pride ourselves on providing a creative and supportive work environment which allows our team to expand their technical horizons, whilst developing experience and responsibilities. We strongly believe in being the best by constantly improving our design, development and delivery practices. If you aren't already excited by concepts such as user centered design, continuous delivery and peer review/programming - you will be soon!
Working within our Agile (Scrum) team, you will be designing and developing microsites for our customers that support a seamless user experience and result in strong conversion. Collaborating closely with our customers, sales team and account manager - you will take customer requirements and turn them into engaging and responsive products used by people around the world. You'll work on these projects from start to finish, using your design, UX and problem solving sills to create the best possible experience for our customers and their users.
You'll also get the opportunity to collaborate on our wider product range, helping us to develop and improve our other web applications - such as our industry leading dashboard and widget products. And we'll be looking for your suggestions and to carry out research which will help us improve our technology stack and working practices.
We are a close team of passionate and driven individuals - are you? We have big aspirations and we hope that you do too!
Teamwork is a priority. Whether working with other engineers, with stakeholders or with our customers - you'll be constantly communicating and working collaboratively.
Your opinions matter, but so do the opinions of others. We encourage everyone, no matter their position, to be forthright with ideas and criticisms and to champion their beliefs into realities. This also means that we all have to be great listeners, able to take criticism constructively and help others in realising their objectives.
