What are we building?
We're building a new Payments Platform for Northwestern Mutual(NM) - Enterprise Payments Network (EPN) using the latest technologies on AWS. NM is introducing more Embedded Financial products to provide more value to customers and help them meet their financial goals. EPN platform will have several of those components built along with payment solutions. We're a year into our journey and there's a lot of new capabilities we need you to help us build. Tech stack and dev tools we are using are Node.js, Typescript, Kafka, DynamoDB, Lambda, Kubernetes, Postman, Kevlar, Cucumber... And How about an opportunity to do the assessment based on our needs and choose the appropriate tech stack to build these new components? Whoever take up this position will have a chance to influence those decisions. Does Banking-as-a-Service, Banking-as-a-platform or Embedded Finance excites you? This position is for you...
The EPN program has several agile-scrum teams that operate together as a part of a program organized using the Scaled Agile Frameworks (SAFe). On your scrum team there will be engineers holding roles as scrum master, devops, QA, and leads. There will also be a business analyst/product owner. We have a testing group outside the teams as well that help us coordinate and test the larger platform and integrating teams. There are also designers, architects, and program managers working outside the team to help build the runway of work coming to your team.
