6 months ago
Milan, Italy

Who we are:

We’re a pan-European digital wealth manager with over 80,000 active investors (growing fast!) and over £2 billion on our platform. With 160+ people across 3 offices in Italy and the UK, we’re supported and funded by Poste Italiane, Cabot Square Capital and Allianz.

We started in 2011 in Milan with a simple vision - to help more people improve their financial well-being by making personal investing straightforward and accessible through technology. Fast forward a few years, and we’re known as one of the most innovative fintechs headquartered in the heart of London.


To provide investment solutions and advice to protect and grow client wealth through time.

Our Core Values:

We’ve built our business on three Principles:

  • Relationships are our first asset: We’re one team, built on trust, honesty and transparency. We value our relationships above all else.
  • Trust drives success: We give each other the space to grow. We empower our employees to succeed, so they can make a real impact.
  • Our customers dream big, just like us: We see the bigger picture and we make sure our customers see it, too. We’re always focused on the best outcomes for our clients and for each other, no matter what the goal, or how big the dream.

What this means in practice:

At Moneyfarm, diversity is the foundation of our competitive advantage. We value our employees for who they are – their backgrounds, experiences, talents, knowledge and individual differences. This is what makes us better at what we do. To accommodate our different needs and commitments, we offer flexible working to all. Our individual impact and output is what counts most.

Candidates who belong to 'Categoria protetta' (Legge 68/99) are more than welcome!

Who we're looking for

This role can be based in our offices in Cagliari, Milan, London or completely remotely (open minded about where in Europe you are based. We're remote friendly!)
For this role, please upload your CV in English.

In this role you will be a Scala developer in one of our cross-functional development team. Likely technical challenges you will be facing in your first year at Moneyfarm will be related to adapting the architecture of our systems with strong customer growth in mind, and to enhancing our value proposition.

As a senior member you will provide guidance and support to your colleagues, helping with their technical and professional growth.

A successful candidate in this role will be pragmatic, value simplicity and effectiveness, and be biased for action. They will consider being wrong an opportunity for learning and will not consider any part of the software development lifecycle to be someone else's problem.

Your job title will be Senior Software Engineer, but your job will be to help us build a great product that our customers love, and a great environment to work in. We are looking for people who want to make an impact in whatever they can, contributing their ideas to how we can improve our product, our technology and the way we work.


  • Together with your team, you own the development, maintenance and non-functional aspects of some of Moneyfarm core systems. e.g. our trading and billing systems.
  • Continually work to improve the way that your team works together.
  • When needed, research and evaluate new approaches and technologies, and demonstrate their value.
  • Mentor and support your more junior colleagues, using your experience to help them.
  • Work closely with colleagues from around the wider engineering team to define and evolve our systems architecture.
  • Own the production operation and non-functional aspects of the systems you create.
  • Work closely with your team’s Engineering Lead and Product Manager to design upcoming projects for the team.


  • You have at least 7 years of commercial experience in software engineering. A BSc in Software Engineering or Computer Science or higher degree is non essential, but nice to have.
  • A proven track record of delivering projects successfully.
  • Scala commercial experience is highly preferred, but not essential provided you have strong transferable skills, e.g. Java 8+, Kotlin, functional programming, etc.
  • Experience working with microservices architectures, event streaming systems and cloud providers is also preferred. Kafka, Kubernetes and AWS knowledge is a plus.
  • A good understanding of agile methodologies (particularly Kanban/Lean), their principles and their ceremonies.
  • Comfortable working in remote-friendly teams distributed between multiple locations.
  • Experience in financial services or other regulated industries is preferred but not essential.
  • Able to communicate effectively in English (written and spoken), Italian is a nice to have.
