Back-End Engineer with Ravelin
London, United Kingdom£40K – £85K
10 months ago

Job Description

Ravelin is looking for a senior backend engineer to lead the development of a high volume fraud technology platform within a small tech team. You will be invited and expected to have opinions about the strategic direction of the company and products, as well as leading the development team from the front. A successful candidate will be willing learning new skills (machine learning, neural networks, python, golang, cloud automation etc), turning their hand to necessary tasks and working with complete autonomy.

Responsibilities

Code for Humans

Your machine is happy if it compiles; your team is happy if they can understand what it does. Your pull requests are succinct and a pleasure to review, you have unit tests where it matters, and you understand that the code is not, in fact, the documentation.

Reliable & Resilient Software Not for you the happy path or the assumed network. That habit of yours of assuming the worst and planning for it has earned your stripes in the world of running software at scale under real-world conditions.

Tools for the Team
Whether it’s a smart command line utility or a core internal library, you excel at improving everyone’s lives by removing repetition & common sources of error, and by solving hard problems in accessible ways. You build internal processes that are so reliable they melt into the background but are key to getting work done.

APIs
You’ve been on the receiving end of APIs good and bad, and want to delight our customers with the high quality they expect. You know that whilst everything should be JSON, sometimes you have to get your hands dirty with some SOAP for that critical integration but know how to isolate the contagion.

Requirements

  • Go, Java, Python or C
  • AWS or GCP
  • Docker, Linux
  • NoSQL/Cassandra (not including Mongo & Redis)
  • PostgreSQL

Backend Go Developer with Geckoboard
London, United Kingdom£40k - £61k
10 months ago

Job Description

At Geckoboard we help businesses use their data to align their teams on the metrics that matter most to them. We’ve been busy reimagining the way our customers get their data in Geckoboard and have a lot of interesting and creative work to do to shape their experiences. Right now, we’re looking for curious problem solvers to help us on this journey.

What are we working on?

We’ve completely rebuilt how data gets into Geckoboard from third-party APIs, thanks to a query planner that’s written entirely in Go. Our query planner takes in the metrics that a customer would like to track, and produces a plan for how to fetch and transform those metrics from a third-party JSON API such as Zendesk, Intercom, Google Analytics, etc.

We’re now working on extending this platform and building various microservices for tracking our customers’ rate limits and scheduling metric refreshes in the most efficient way possible. We’re also creating a caching engine that ensures we don’t waste precious API calls on data that we know hasn’t changed since last time.

The team are also in the middle of splitting up our existing REST APIs into gRPC microservices with segregated data stores. Which is a huge opportunity for us to rethink some of the fundamental assumptions about Geckoboard’s data model and how we can re-architect our systems for greater reliability and to enable us to ship with more confidence.

We don’t expect you’ll have worked on all of these kinds of projects before, but if they take your fancy and you’re excited about working on distributed systems and database technologies at scale, we’d love to hear from you.

As one of our Backend Go Developers:

  • You’ll be writing in Golang on a day-to-day basis.
  • You will help architect, design, and build Geckoboard’s data pipeline.
  • You’ll maintain and optimise our existing infrastructure and services.
  • You will get involved in the prioritising and evaluation of our work.
  • You’ll pair with team members and get involved in code reviews.

Joining us in our London office, you’ll be working alongside a growing team of empowered engineers, with a focus on building a high quality product our customers love, work life balance and personal development.

Keen to hear a bit more? Carlos, one of our Backend Go Developers has shared a little about what it’s like working with the team, what an average day looks like and more in an interview on our Blog: https://medium.com/geckoboard-under-the-hood/working-at-geckoboard-as-a-go-developer-e73855bd0dd8

The Geckoboard Story

Thousands of businesses use Geckoboard to build live TV Dashboards that focus teams on what matters. We take the complexity out of connecting data and make it simple for anyone to understand key metrics at a glance. We have pre-built integrations with 60+ tools including Google Analytics, Salesforce, Zendesk, Intercom and Google Sheets and our customers include Marketo, Slack, and Skyscanner.

In our mission to make data useful, our growing team of 40+ is headquartered in London and span across eight time zones - from Mumbai to London, San Francisco to Hawaii and more. We’re always looking for people with diverse backgrounds who bring unique perspectives and skills to join our team and in return we constantly strive to ensure that we offer the most encouraging, inclusive, and efficient environment possible.

We don’t just pay lip service to work-life balance, we actively and strongly encourage it. Flexible working hours and the ability to regularly work from home lets you work in a way that fits you and your family. We see our contractual obligation to offer 25 days of paid holiday as a minimum for everyone in the organisation, not a limit.

We actively contribute to professional development, courses, conferences, and books. Our Engineering & Product team also run fortnightly “Innovation Wednesdays”, where everyone has complete freedom to work on anything that interests them, from contributing to open source, to learning a new skill, or improving our internal tools and processes.

Our users enjoy on-demand access to anything from high-end cameras to drones to campervans. As a result, they’re doing, creating and achieving incredible things every day. Income from rentals is changing the lives of many of our lenders, too - whether it’s paying their rent or allowing them to drop corporate jobs and focus on passion projects.

The herd’s growing fast, too. Last year we went through Y Combinator and recently announced a $10M raise from amazing investors to superpower our growth and focus on American growth.

Our Technology

Technology is at the heart of everything we do at Fat Llama, allowing us to solve a problem that has never been solved before. Our whole team gets a say in the product & tech roadmap, and our engineering team takes pride in writing, testing and deploying new features on a daily basis.

As an engineer at Fat Llama, you’ll be responsible for crafting, building and running the software which underpins our marketplace. We’re looking for somebody that can deliver solid engineering whilst moving at the same speed as our constantly growing business.

Are you excited by the prospect of learning new technologies? In a rapidly changing and growing startup, you’ll be required to wear many different hats. Whether it be designing scalable systems, building tools to help our Operations team keep the business running, or slicing and dicing data for our analytics dashboards, you should welcome the challenge. You should thrive in a constantly changing environment and enjoy learning new things at a fast pace.

Our team takes pride in owning our work truly end-to-end. We’re looking for people who can plan, experiment, build, test, deploy, measure and iterate before calling it done. As a small team, we try and build on the shoulders of giants, which means that you’ll often find us working with the latest and greatest technologies.

You might be a good fit for the role if you:

  • Want to work in a team that values teamwork, learning and collaboration.
  • Love writing clean, elegant code that other people can read.
  • Have a deep understanding of at least two programming languages or paradigms.
  • Have experience mentoring and teaching other engineers.
  • Have led engineering projects from conception to delivery
  • Have expertise in designing and building web services or APIs.
  • Take pride in your fastidious approach to testing your code.

We would be thrilled if you also had:

  • Experience building distributed systems or microservices.
  • Android, iOS or React Native work under your belt.
  • A deep understanding of JavaScript or Golang.
  • Experience working with and launching cloud based services.

If you don’t feel like you fit all of these areas, don’t worry. We are dedicated to the development of our team. Whether you’re a computer science graduate, an artist or a bricklayer, as long as you’re also a programmer, we’d love to hear from you.

Please note that the package for this role will include equity.

Applicants with less experience may want to consider applying for our software engineer role.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
