About Hodge

For over 50 years, we’ve shared the same simple mission: to really make a positive difference for our customers and communities. This ethos is in our DNA as we are 79% owned by a charity, the Hodge Foundation.

In order to continue to grow we have a clear focus on ensuring that we are operationally excellent. We understand that our operational teams are at the heart of our business and support our ambitious growth plans.  As Hodge continues to embark on its next chapter the Bank has already seen a large amount of growth both in terms of financial performance but importantly its colleagues. Our strategic vision is underpinned by our people and our investment in our colleagues. Our culture is what makes us special and ultimately what delivers our purpose to make a positive difference for our customers and communities.

Our aim is to open financial possibilities where options seem limited. Helping a family get a mortgage, saving for that dream or investing in or developing property. All of our customers get much more than just products: we give them simple solutions and support when they need it most.

The Role

To support the growth of our digital services, we are looking for a Software Engineer to join our Development team.

The development team is leading the technical delivery of a large scale digital transformation. Working in an Agile environment, we are building cutting edge cloud-based web solutions for real-time financial services delivered through cross platform solutions. As Software Engineer, you will be part of an Agile team involved in the full life-cycle of development for customer facing solutions.

The new digital estate is enforced by the latest cyber security policies and technology tools, as well as the best web services and secure cloud delivery models available. We are therefore looking for individuals with drive, enthusiasm and the right knowledge to join our development team. You will be part of the full-stack delivery teams building customer facing cloud-based web solutions across multiple business areas and be expected to understand the business domain.

You will be working as part of a Scrum team comprising a product owner, analysts, developers, testers and business SME’s delivering external and internal platforms to support the business and our customers.

Our primary technology stack is Java-based delivering into AWS cloud infrastructure. The main stack consists of Java 11+, React JS / Native, Springboot, Hibernate/JPA, Bootstrap, Javascript and JQuery. Commercial experience in the core Java toolsets is key to this role.

Are you the one for us?

To be successful you must have strong logical analysis and trouble-shooting skills and be methodical in your approach. Other key attributes are a proactive approach to solving problems as part of a team, and a focus on continuous improvement in all aspects of what we do.

  • Skills and Experience:
    • Educated to degree level in a computer science or IT-related subject, ideally with a 2:1 or above.
    • Demonstrable experience in a commercial software development role.
    • Commercial experience in relevant Java technologies – Java 11+, SpringBoot, Hibernate.
    • Ideally experience of developing for an AWS-based environment.

    • Understanding of Continuous Integration and Delivery, plus exposure to common toolsets such as Jenkins, Git, JIRA, Confluence or similar.
    • A positive can-do attitude and willingness and desire to get things done.
