Work at blanco

We are looking for motivated people. Because that is what we are: passionate professionals who previously had careers with major financial services providers, strategic consulting companies and startups. We offer the opportunity to become part of a fast-growing and innovative fintech service company. With us, you can work independently in a flexible environment and in a way that you find the most effective.

You can learn a lot with us in a short amount of time, with considerable responsibility and freedom at the same time. We offer opportunity to grow. And, we find results more important than personal presence. Blanco gives you your own MacBook and an inspiring work environment in our Amsterdam (Zuidas) or Rotterdam (Hofplein) office, where we have plenty of room to work and relax.

If this all sounds good, send your resume (in Dutch or English) to bernadette.wijnings@blanco.services.

AWS 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, not 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.

Are you following every news item, blog post or tweet about #serverless? Have you deployed a microservices solution (or pet project) on AWS and do you want to use your skills to develop new technology solutions for the Wealth and Asset Management industry. We would love to welcome you on board at blanco!

Will you join us in the serverless revolution?!

Of course we need you to fully master node.js, because that is what we use to deploy our Lambda functions. But you are a wizard right? And you love callbacks 🙂 We use the full AWS Serverless stack (and even more) so we hope you will be comfortable using the API Gateway and configure the endpoints with correct methods, query params, header forwards etc. Since we work with personal and financial data we need top-notch security so why not use API keys while we are at it.

If you master this trick you probably also master NoSQL and DynamoDB does not have many secrets for you

To manage our users we use AWS’s Cognito User Pools and Identity Pools to secure the API with temporary IAM credentials and permissions. If you have not yet worked with Cognito, this might be a good start.

As our project grows deployment becomes more important. You do not want to deploy all Lambda functions manually and define the endpoints one-by-one. that is why we want you to get introduced to the Serverless Framework. A set of tools to make deployments easier.

Oh, and we want you to have some experience and knowledge on automatic integration and continuous deployment as well because that is just good development practice. We did say we need a Guru…

FRONTEND KING

We develop innovative solutions for Wealth & Asset Managers. We believe that a great frontend makes a great solution. And because we want to build a great solution we are looking for a frontend developer to enforce our team. If you believe that installing and configuring drupal is frontend development, then please click this link. But if you believe that building frontends is a mix of development and design then we are on the same (web)page.

You have a creative mind and your hands can code what your brain thinks. You started plain HTML way back, did javascript, learned php and now work with anuglar and or react. When you are done working you move to your personal pet projects at home or start some cool design work.

Can you help us with challenges in development and UI/UX design? We might have a spot on the ship for you, arrrr…

src=''

We choose AngularJS (v2) for our frontend development, so Angular knowledge and experience is a hard requirement. Our frontend(s) connect to inhouse developed RESTful API’s and integrate with third party services. Your connecting skills and the fact that you natively speak JSON may come in handy.

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. Bootstrap will give us a good start, but we need you to work with our designer to slice and dice perfect screens and a intuitive customer journeys.

The team would love to hear of and learn from your experience in frameworks, we hope you also like webpack but you might convince us to use other solutions as well. Ofcourse 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 with a cookie and talk about your ideas on web innovation

iOS JEDI

We develop innovative solutions for Wealth & Asset Managers. We believe that a great frontend makes a great solution. We see multiple channels in our product and of them is mobile. We are building an iPad application as part of our platform and will be supporting end-client mobile solutions in the future. For now we have full focus on iOS (Android maybe later) and we need to extend our team with an iOS specialist.

Are you one of the pioneers who build his killer app at the age of 14? We need an iOS Jedi who can use the force of Swift to build the best mobile applications bringin all the features in our platform in the hands of our customers.

“Do. Or do not. There is no try.”

iOSJedi@macbook:Project$

Our Xcode screens are filled with Swift3 code, but we might have an objective-c framework or two imported in our code base as well. You need to be a seasoned iOS developer who fully migrated his code-base skills to Swift3. Objective-c writing is not that important but being able to understand is.

The business-2-business application is connected to our own RESTFul API and third party services so you are a master in connecting to API’s and serializing and deserializing JSON objects and classes. You are familiar with the use of mainstream frameworks and know your dealing with handling the dependencies with cocoapods.

You know best practices on UI/UX on mobile devices by heart and have a creative mind in designing flows and screens. We expect clean readable and maintainable code. You could definitely teach us with your experience in versioning and backwards compatibility with API’s. We need automated tests and integration with our consinuous integration and deployments strategies.

May your force be with us
