Senior Python Engineer - Trade Engine Team

Hybrid: 4 days in the office, 1 day working from home

The Role:

The Trade Engine Engineering team at Ebury is seeking an experienced Python Engineer to play a crucial part in our team. As part of our diverse team spread across South America and Europe, the successful candidate will be entrusted with the development and optimisation of our multi-currency accounting system and exchange of foreign currencies. You'll be required to make significant contributions to our platform as we continually aim to bring it to the next level and deliver the best FX experience for our clients and operational teams.
 As a Python Engineer in our team, your technical knowledge and skills will be paramount to our innovation and growth. We value collaboration and commitment, operating within a distributed setup where effective working is key.


  • Contribute to the development of the next iteration of our FX platform’s services, collaborating both in the development and delivery of new products but also in the improvement and automation of existing ones.
  • Collaborate with your team members and engineering leaders to design new services and components using our Request For Comments (RFC) process.
  • Coach and mentor less experienced team members, positively changing the trajectory of the team to increase the overall effectiveness and efficiency of the team.
  • Lead product initiatives from discovery to delivery, working closely with the product and operational teams to ensure everyone is on the same page.
  • In line with our 'You build it, you own it' philosophy, we expect you to take full ownership of the products you build, embracing both their development and ongoing maintenance.


  • You have extensive experience in developing complex software systems. We mainly work with Python, but it is also ok if you are more comfortable with other OOP languages.
  • Since you will work side by side with colleagues from different countries, you will be able to communicate clearly and concisely your ideas in English, both written and spoken.
  • You are adept at both constructing and managing services. As such, you should have proficiency in establishing standard APIs, incorporating monitoring systems and alerting services, along with a strong expertise in integrating external systems.
  • You are not afraid of legacy code, being able to keep it running and make improvement proposals once you are comfortable with the workflows, so that we can reduce our technical debt backlog.
  • Quality is important to us, we expect your code to be testable and well covered with unit and integration tests. We use CI Jenkins pipelines and terraform for the deployment of services and infrastructure. From time to time, you might need to contribute to it.
