Job description We need:
THRIVE IN OUR NEW LONDON TECH HUB
- Software Developers
- Location: Holborn, Central London
- Salary: Competitive to reflect experience
Nationwide is opening a new, state-of-the art tech hub in Holborn, Central London. For an agile-minded Software Developers
like you, it's a unique opportunity to get a Centre of Engineering Excellence off the ground, influence its evolution and grow your career.
We're following the lead of some of the world's biggest tech companies in solving the huge complexities of massive-scale, user-driven systems. So we're embarking on a new chapter in our architectural thinking focused around event streams and event-driven architectures. It involves utilising technologies such as Apache Kafka, NoSQL Databases and Microservices to build elastically scaling systems to provide an outstanding experience to our members.
Shape and be part of our new vision, while having a healthy work-life balance. You'll be given your schedule in advance, helping you to organise your life and enjoy everything the capital has to offer.
If you would like more information on the roles please either reach out to the Hiring Manager Mike Blakeman or the Resourcing Manager David Scott.
Who we're looking for
We're after experience of some of the following. But more important is an open mind, a collaborative way of working, plus the desire to learn about emerging technologies and new architectures.
- Java programming
- Agile and/or DevOps driven environments
- Architectures such as Enterprise, cloud, N-Tier, Event Streaming or Microservices
- Container technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes or OpenShift
- NoSQL databases such as MongoDB, Cassandra, CosmosDB, DynamoDB or Redis
What you'll be doing
Harnessing your experience of coding, including writing automated test suites, you'll take on a frontline role. This will entail designing, building and testing systems used by millions every day, and working with the most up-to-date technologies to deliver real change. A team player who can lead by example, you'll log issues as they're discovered, and take end-to-end ownership for developing and implementing solutions. You'll also nurture and develop contacts and relationships to enable things to be done faster and more efficiently. Essentially, it's about getting stuck in and having a go, knowing that sometimes to fail fast is to learn fast.
The extras you'll get
Feeling as though you belong means being valued, recognised and rewarded. We aim to give our people a good work-life balance, so you'll receive your schedule in advance, helping you to organise your life. We show our support through the recognition and rewards scheme we offer:
- Access to training to help you progress and develop your technical skills and career
- Pension scheme where if you pay in 7% we'll top it up to 23%
- Life assurance worth 8x your salary

- The ability to 'buy' up to 10 days more holiday
- Flexible benefits scheme giving you access to discount vouchers at various retail outlets
- Access to an annual performance related bonus scheme
Please note: To help us do the right thing by our members, all applicants will be subject to a criminal record and credit checks.
