Founded in 2016 with only a handful of individuals, Quantexa was built with a purpose that through a greater understanding of context, better decisions can be made. 6 years, 10 locations and 500+ employees later we still believe that today. We connect the dots within our Customers data using dynamic entity resolution and advanced network analytics to create context, empowering businesses to see the bigger picture and drive real value from their data.

Due to the continuous success and high demand from our customers, we are looking for a Full Stack Software Engineer with a proven track record to join the Quantexa family. 🚀

What will you be doing?

In this role you will be working on building new back end and front-end features on the Quantexa Platform.

Our products process huge volumes of data with the ultimate aim of detecting anomalous and suspicious activity. The user interface we provide enables users to conduct complex investigations into fraud and financial crime cases and visualise complex networks of criminal activity.

On the back end, our services are primarily written in Scala and deployed as microservices. We are huge fans of functional and strongly typed programming, making use of libraries such as Cats and Shapeless. We also use Akka and Monix to help build scalable, highly performant, distributed services. We utilise techniques such as event sourcing and CQRS in our persistence layer to ensure our datastores are scalable and flexible.

The front end has been developed using modern front-end tools and frameworks such as TypeScript, Angular 6+ and ngrx and has been designed from the ground up to be highly extensible and allow for customisation to meet varying requirements.

  • Take a big picture approach to solving problems, taking care to ensure that the solution works well within the wider system.
  • Love working with the latest technology.
  • Passion and drive to grow within one of the UK’s fastest-growing Start-ups.
