Plynk is fun.

Social money is around person to person payments – and this is big. Plynk are making the transfer of money to friends and relatives fun. And Free! Yes, there is a payments engine in their software, but Plynk is really a social media platform at its heart. Plynk is Dublin’s most exciting start-up based in Camden St Dublin 2. It’s a true start up – but with a difference. It’s a rocket taking off. Plynk Launched their app in January 2017 and by June raised the largest Series a funding in the history of the Irish state so far - €25m. The market knows a good thing when it sees it.  

Working in this company means a few things. People truly believe and are passionate about what they're doing. The customer is at the heart of everything we do. Leave your ego at the door, and be ready to have all your capabilities used and your voice heard. This is an environment where you and your team will be given high level problems to solve and you have to go and solve them. No detailed functional specs. Just ideas and results. Experiment, fail, try again, succeed and deliver. Own your failures and share your successes. That’s you, not afraid to try. 

As a Senior Java Software Engineer, you will be working on a key feature of the product as part of a cross functional team (Product, UX, Mobile Dev) and be leading the charge with the backend of this platform. You’ll get to work with Java 8 and a range of AWS solutions such as Codestar (awesome), DynamoDB and Cloudwatch. You’ll have the opportunity to build and test your own code as part of AGILE feature teams. Working with the latest technologies, you’ll immerse yourself in a fast paced, fun environment with some other cracking engineers. If you love software development and keep in touch with the latest technologies then this is the place for you

So, what do you look like?

Well, you will have a tech qualification because you knew quickly you were going to build software. You will have some years of commercial development (ability over tenure please) using an object-oriented language and have solid experience with Java now and in a Test-Driven Development environment. You will know your way around using ASW Services and tools as part of the software stack you are delivering. If you have worked as a founder or entrepreneur before and are back on the market – don’t overlook this company, you’ll find yourself in good company
