AWS Serverless Guru

$ npm install -g serverless-guru|

We develop innovative solutions for Wealth & Asset Managers. One of our most important IT strategy principles is​‘We do not want to own servers, not physical, nor virtual’. That is why we choose to fully adopt the serverless architecture. But to be able to successfully execute our ambition we need a highly skilled colleague with experience in the AWS Serverless stack.

Do you feel excited to build microservices and work with serverless, GraphQL and bleeding edge technology? Do you think it’s fun to be constantly challenged and have the freedom to experiment and be creative? If so, then Blanco is the right fit for you. We’re a scale-up that develops innovative solutions for Wealth & Asset Managers and we’re looking for the next rock-star to join our team.


What you’ll be doing

We choose Angular for our frontend development, so Angular knowledge and experience is a hard requirement. Our frontend(s) connect to in-house developed RESTful or GraphQL API’s and integrate with third party services. Your connecting skills and the fact that you natively speak JSON, Observables, Routing, RxJS, HttpClient, internationalization(18n) may come in handy. You’re passionate about the frontend world and all the new stuff like PWAs, Service Workers, Web Workers, State Management and Ivy. Writing secure, reusable, and tested code is also part of your daily activities.

So you think you can code? How about design? Without a well-engineered User Design and User Experience our customers will not love all the functionality we provide them. Off-the shelve components will give us a good start, but we need you to work with our designer to slice and dice perfect screens and intuitive customer journeys.

The team would love to hear of and learn from your experience in frameworks, we hope you also might convince us to use solutions you used in the past as well. Of course we need you to spent a lot of time on cross-browser compatibility We use AWS for our infrastructure: we do not need you to have solution architect certificate, but if you used S3, Route53 and/​or CloudFront that would definitely help you get on top of the list. We love to share a cup of java(script) with a cookie and talk about your ideas on web innovation.
