Job Description:

Are you interested in serving the needs of millions of customers by building best-in-class API capabilities  which help deliver experiences in financial planning, investing, and retirement? Our Digital Services Technology team is looking for solution based engineers with a passion for developing easy-to-use, customer focused APIs and capabilities which power Fidelity’s web and mobile experience platforms.

The Purpose of Your Role

Our teams build APIs and Digital capabilities that support Fidelity’s large scale digital presence. You will help us design and develop re-usable APIs that focus on customer experience needs and optimize quality and deployment practices. You’ll contribute to the entire development lifecycle from concept to deployment as a member of an agile, cross-functional team.

You will have the opportunity to share your technical knowledge to help strengthen our engineering community and further pursue your own learning of new technologies and platforms. We're looking for software engineers that enjoy a collaborative environment and have a passion for releasing high quality software through iterative software development practices.

The Expertise we’re Looking For

  • You have a passion for technology and can navigate your way across complex and rapidly-changing landscapes by staying on top of latest trends and thrive by sharing knowledge.

  • Are a creator, a doer, and a disruptor who will help us solve real-life problems and meet real customer needs. You’ll be helping us build things, taking an idea, and creating rapid prototypes that are shippable and learn from real-life feedback.

  • Are comfortable to be a self-starter, who actively challenges status-quo, is curious and not afraid to ask “Why” and “What if”?

  • Are experienced with the tools of the trade including a variety of modern programming languages and frameworks

  • Care about cycle time and use CI/CD practices, tools to rapidly deploy changes to customers while minimizing risk using practices like A/B tests, blue-green deployments, and feature toggles

  • Stay on top of Algorithms, Data Structures and Design Patterns and love the challenge of building highly scalable systems that can support thousands of transactions/sec.

  • Have a mindset of test first development and are experienced in modern test frameworks. We believe in testing and that quality is everyone’s job.

  • Are data-driven and can measure, collect and use data to make decisions. We understand the value of intuition and the need to balance decisions accordingly.

  • Have strong communication skills and technical expertise to drive and participate in meaningful discussions.

The Skills You Bring

  • 2+ years of hands on software development experience in Java Web services and API solutions.

  • Hands-on experience with Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), building RESTful services, XML/JSON, and modern Application Servers.

  • Proficient in Java, J2EE, Spring MVC, Spring Core and JavaScript.

  • Knowledge of API design, including versioning, isolation and micro-services.

  • Knowledge  of  DevOps, Continuous Integration and Delivery tools like Jenkins, Maven, uDeploy, Stash and Docker.

  • Working knowledge of testing frameworks like Junit, Mockito, Spring Test.

  • Knowledge of web application development using JSP, HTML, CSS/SASS, JQuery, Angular and NodeJS.

  • Experience in Agile methodologies (Kanban, SCRUM)

  • Knowledge of cloud computing environments and applications (AWS, Azure).

  • Knowledge of relational and NoSQL database management systems.

  • Excellent collaboration skills to work with multiple teams in the organization globally.

The Value You Deliver

The Digital Services Technology (DST) team in Personal Investing (PI) supports applications and tools that provide capabilities like Online money movement, Account management, BillPay services and Account opening for Fidelity's retail and workplace customers. This position will play a key role in delivering new and enhancing existing digital capabilities to provide the best customer experience.

How your Work Impacts the Organization

We believe that diversity in background and experience will foster an inclusive and engaging work environment for our employees. This ultimately enables us to deliver a better product for our customers.

Being technically competent is only telling half the story. We believe that delivering the best possible customer experience requires an artful blend of human ingenuity and technology. While we value smart technologists, we are fanatics about our culture that promotes autonomy and leadership at all levels. People who are great cultural fits demonstrate curiosity to learn, are unafraid to break things, step up and take the lead, take ownership of their projects, and thrive by sharing knowledge.

Our culture code is simple

  • We share knowledge to empower and connect everyone

  • We live outside our comfort zone

  • We believe life is too short to not love what you do

  • We know amazing people create great opportunities

  • We are customers

  • We favor autonomy and take ownership

Educational & Experience

  • Bachelors or any equivalent degree with computer science background.

  • 2-8 years of relevant experience
