Novia feels the need for speed

By Anita Jaynes on 16 September, 2020

Bath’s Novia Financial is on the look out for top talent. Dave Howard, the firm’s Chief Technology Officer, tells us more. 

In a nutshell we are looking for IT professionals to join our crack team of business analysts, developers, testers and DevOps engineers to help us enhance our award-winning wealth platform. Covid-19 is the biggest accelerant our industry has ever seen; what would have been five-year development and adoption cycles have had to be compressed into months. So, if you are ambitious, love personal accountability, and are motivated by achievement and being part of high-performing teams then joining our expanding group on “Novians” could be your next move.

Located in the centre of the historic city of Bath; Jane Austen observed “who can ever be tired of Bath?”. I agree, but I find the Dave Flatman’s (ex England International and now, without doubt, the best rugby pundit in the 20 stone and over category) views more compelling, “Bath is best city for a night-out followed by a curry”. 

Back to the speed analogy, we are looking to increase our metabolic rate with the adoption of Scaled Agile and DevOps culture so that we can redefine what a good wealth platform looks like. This means developing features that help our advisers’ growth their business and at the same time operate with greater efficiency. All in unprecedented timescales without compromising quality or service delivery. We are recruiting for behaviour and talent and if you have the skills we need then great, if not we will train you. You would need to be willing to shape what we do, how we do it, bring passion and a point of view to the table and have fun along the way. We are privileged to be working with exceptional product providers and delivery partners, operating as a one-team culture where everyone gets stuck-in. 

We want to be famous for changing the way wealth platforms are built and operated so that our advisers are genuine advocates because we help them grow and run their business and deliver demonstrable value to their clients. If you feel you have the makings of a Novian then get a wiggle on and knock our door down!
