CMC Markets

CMC Invest is a new greenfield retail Investment app created by a team of product designers and engineers in house at CMC. It’s launched in its first incarnation to a small number of customers. This is just the beginning, we want to make it the best investment app you can install on your phone.

The vision for our development lifecycle is to create an environment where engineers are empowered to build investment functionality that our users desire with the least amount of technical barriers as possible. Creating desirable functionality requires the ability to very quickly iterate over ideas and feedback from users, our infrastructure and tools need to facilitate this by providing easily repeatable patterns, templates and workflows that can be used without requiring hours of training.

Our goal is to provide tools and documentation which would allow a developer to deploy new functionality within an hour of starting their work, having never worked on the system before.

We require a dedicated senior cloud engineer to help us to continue to build our AWS native architecture to help us reach this goal and contribute toward our vision. Working closely with the developers the senior cloud engineer will analyse developer requirements and then design scalable solutions and implement workflows and modules to meet those requirements.
