Software Engineer with Pivotal
London, United Kingdom£60k - £75k
4 days ago

Job Description

Always be kind: a simple daily affirmation and one that feels more like a personal mission statement than a corporate motto – but Pivotal isn’t just any corporation. Underpinning our world-class capabilities in cloud-native software delivery and agile development methodologies is one common thread: empathy. Not only do we want to transform the way the world builds software, we also want to make sure that sustainable pace, kindness, and diversity are at the core of every enterprise.

Known for taking an iterative approach, our 2000+ employees are empowered every day to help shape the way we build software. Pivotal is committed to open source, a diverse culture, and fostering safe spaces for all of our individual employees.

*You*

You are looking for a collaborative environment building distributed systems that enable enterprises to focus on their business rather than re-architecting a cloud platform from scratch. Pair programming has always been something that you wanted to try out.

Furthering your education has always been a goal of yours. Learning new programming languages and getting to work with Golang piques your interest.

Contributing to open source software makes you feel good about the transparency it brings to an organization’s code quality.

*Us*

Agile concepts are at the core of our process. We have a whole host of Pivotal Practices around Test Driven Development, pair programming, team retrospectives, technical retrospectives and continuous integration. We are excited to teach these to you and innovate with you on their implementation.

We stick to a strict 8 hour a day schedule (with flexible start and end times). Although on-call rotations are part of most teams, incidents are exceedingly rare.

We pair in small teams of 4 - 8 people in our London office, conveniently located at Old Street. We use Slack to stay connected and Tmux for pairing. We are working hard to make sure that our distributed teams function as smoothly as our distributed systems.

You’ll rarely be alone when developing; from pairing all day to 1 on 1 time with your manager, there is always a Pivot there to lend a helping hand. Mentorship from senior engineering leadership is built right into our process - you’ll always be empowered.

Making an investment in each Pivot’s professional development improves the organization as a whole. We encourage you to go to conferences or purchase those pricey O’Reilly books - and we’ll give you a budget each year to do it.

*Your Day*

As cliche as it may sound, every day is completely different from the next. We have a general framework for what our day looks like and the majority of it will be spent with your pair:

9:06 AM - Office-wide stand-up to build office cohesion and start the day off together.

9:10 AM - Team standup - discuss any blockers, choose pairs, maybe even tell a joke.

9:30-12:30 PM - Start pairing, tackle an open GitHub issue and open a pull-request.

12:30-1:30 PM - Lunch! Grab food from one of the many nearby restaurants, run an errand, or join a book club.

1:31-6:00 PM - Get back with your pair and start an acceptance test for a big feature.

While that schedule does look busy, don’t worry - we take ample breaks throughout the day. Take a walk to get boba, read a book on the balcony, play a game of ping pong, or chat with co-workers at the snack bar. Sustainable pace is held in high regard. We know there is a life outside of work, we want you to be able to spend time with family and friends.

*Desired Skills / Experience*

We know from experience that not ticking every box on the skills sections stops many from applying. You should apply regardless of your self-assessment because we want to hear from you.

  • Ability to dive into a large polyglot codebase and contribute as you learn
  • Being okay with the uncomfortable feeling that comes from learning new things
  • Interest in exploring new programming paradigms, languages, and patterns
  • Demonstrable ability to research problems and break them into discrete parts

*Nice to Haves*

  • BA/BS in Computer Science or related field
  • Operations or Systems Administration experience, particularly on UNIX
  • Worked with large Go/Ruby/Rails codebases
  • Used Test Driven Development (TDD) extensively
  • Worked in a pair programming environment
  • Contributed to an open source project
  • On-call experience with production grade systems
  • Has mentored others in a professional setting

Cloud Foundry engineers participate in an on-call rotation with their team to support software they work on.

Pivotal is an Equal Employment Opportunity employer that will consider all qualified applicants, regardless of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, gender identity or expression, national origin, genetics, age, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by applicable law.

Cambridge, United Kingdom£30k - £42k
6 days ago

Job Description

Senior Backend Engineer

Build great technology that improves millions of lives.

Overview

Simprints builds cutting-edge technology for some of the poorest individuals in the world, and in the most challenging environments on earth. We are working at the exciting interface of biometrics, technology, and international development where our product is used to radically increase transparency and effectiveness, making sure that every vaccine, every dollar, every education initiative reaches its intended recipient. Working with mentors from top companies like Google, Microsoft, and ARM, we design and develop both hardware and software by applying modern tools in distinctly un-modern environments with little to no internet connectivity. Simprints is currently on track to support over 4 million people by 2021.

We are looking for engineers with a focus on cloud-native backend development to join our growing tech team. You will work on an agile, collaborative team with a commitment to clean code and robust design, along with a strong culture of continuous learning and improvement. If building technology for global health sounds exciting, we want to meet you!

Responsibilities

  • Design, build, and operate secure, reliable, and scalable services that allow Simprints to support projects all over the world
  • Leverage modern software development practices, such as DevOps, microservices and “serverless”
  • Actively develop junior engineers through mentoring and design/code reviews
  • Support growth of the team by attracting, on-boarding, and retaining top talent

Qualifications

  • At least 3 years of professional experience building and operating backend services, with some experience in systems design
  • At least 1 year of professional experience working with a major public cloud provider (Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services) using serverless or managed services (e.g. DynamoDB, BigQuery, any FaaS)
  • Good understanding of software engineering basics such as (but not limited to) OOP, agile, REST, testing, SQL, NoSQL
  • Commitment to lifelong learning. You eat new technologies for breakfast and stay up-to-date with recent trends (e.g. microservices, event-driven architecture, serverless)
  • Ability to clearly communicate and document design decisions in both verbal and written form

Bonus points

  • BS/MS/PhD in Computer Science or a related field
  • Familiarity with Golang && (Java || Kotlin || Scala)
  • Experience with mobile and/or web front-end. You have been on the other side of the API gateway

Why Simprints?

  • Use recent, developer-friendly technologies that let you focus on what matters:

  • Languages: Golang, Kotlin, Typescript

  • Infrastructure: Managed cloud databases (Firestore, BigQuery), managed compute nodes (App Engine, Cloud Functions), managed stream processing platform (Pub/Sub), managed logging/monitoring/tracing (Stackdriver)

  • Event-driven microservice architecture

  • Make a positive impact on millions of the most vulnerable people in the world

  • Work in a team of dedicated and talented engineers committed to writing high quality code. Our informal Clean Code Officer helps keep us honest

  • Optional opportunities to see our tech in action by joining our deployments around the world: Bangladesh, Ethiopia, or Zimbabwe just to name a few

  • Incredible perks

  • Unlimited paid time off. Last year, the average Simprints employee took a total of 31 days off (annual leave plus UK bank holidays)

  • Truly flexible working hours. More efficient late at night? That’s fine by us, start after lunch. We are looking for people who get the job done, not for people who get the job done between 9am and 5pm

  • A generous budget (>£1,500) to spend on both learning and wellness. In the past, Simprints engineers have spent this on attending tech conferences, enrolling in Udacity nanodegrees, joining bouldering gyms, and organizing instructor-led yoga sessions in the office

  • Two ‘LEGO Days’ each quarter where you can work on any project you want. Past projects have ranged from exploring image processing techniques to building a LEGO train to deliver beer around the office

  • Work from the coolest office in Cambridge (the Bradfield Centre - think ‘mini-WeWork’)

As you’ve spent most of your career coding and discovering strategies for successful DevOps or Cloud Native adoption, you are enthused by the concept of transferring this to new teams as they enhance their capabilities further
  • Mentoring client engineering teams in the adoption of new tools, technologies, techniques, patterns and processes, ultimately helping leverage a range of tools and methodologies
  • Driving the adoption of development best practice through whatever method is practical given the obstacles encountered.
  • Representing Armakuni and communicating our vision to client engineering teams, technical management and executives when required
  • Delivering training and support on world-class PaaS solutions composed of best-of-breed cloud native and CI/CD tools such as Cloud Foundry, PKS and Concourse

What does good look like?

First and foremost you will have a passion for leveraging technology to optimise processes and procedures. With a background in software development you will enjoy working alongside client Engineering teams to introduce and optimise development tools and methodologies, ultimately enhancing their cloud journey.

1 month ago

Job Description

At Monzo we’re aiming to build the best current account in the world. We are always keen to hear from capable, creative engineers who want to help us accomplish that goal 🚀

Please note: we get lots of successful applications for Backend Engineer, so there could be a delay in scheduling interviews from the initial stage right up until the final interviews. If you’re invited to interview and you have any immediate time pressures, please let us know, as we’ll always do our best to speed things up for you 😊

Our backend engineers have a variety of different backgrounds

We have several non-graduates; only some of us studied Computer Science; one of the team has a degree in Marketing; some of us have worked in huge companies; some have only ever worked in startups; others are former consultants. As long as you enjoy learning new things, we’d love to talk to you.

We encourage an open and transparent working environment

You can get involved in any aspect of the business you are interested in and,following Stripe’s example, all emails in the company are visible in an email archive. We regularly run hackathons in which people build things on our third party API and we contribute to open source software as much as possible. We’ve also made ourproduct roadmap public and give sneak peeks of features in our community forum. Our blog is a good place to learn even more about what we do!

Monzo works in project-based sprints in small, interdisciplinary teams

We have around 150 engineers out of roughly 800 people in total - and we have big ambitions. There are many interesting challenges ahead, and we’re happy for people to move between teams or to specialise, whatever you prefer. As an engineer here you’d be able to work directly with anyone across the company, and we run regular knowledge-sharing sessions so you’ll learn heaps about everything from how banks work to effective communication.

At Monzo you will get to work with a lot of exciting new technology.

We rely heavily on the following tools and technologies:

  • Go to write our application code (there’s an excellent interactive Go tutorial here)

  • Cassandra for most persistent data storage

  • Kafka for our asynchronous message queue

  • Envoy Proxy for RPC

  • Kubernetes and Docker to schedule and run our services (Oliver,our Head of Engineering, gave a great talk at KubeCon on how we use these technologies)

  • AWS for most of our infrastructure

  • React for internal web dashboards

  • We also have two physical datacenter sites with actual cables to connect to various third parties

You should apply if:

  • the work we’re doing sounds exciting!

  • you want to be involved in building a product that you (andeveryone you know) use every day

  • you’re keen to learn more about new technologies and the arcane inner workings of the financial industry

  • you’re comfortable working in a team that deals with ambiguity

  • you’re interested in distributed systems and writing resilient software

  • you have some experience with strongly-typed languages (Go,Java, C, Scala etc.).

At the moment, the following teams are looking for backend engineers:

Product The product backend team work primarily on creating backend services and APIs for our in-app user-facing features. They work closely with our mobile engineers and designers to create a delightful user experience, and to drive growth and retention. Projects that Product backend engineers have worked on recently include Summary (giving people insight into their finances to empower them to spend sensibly) and the Current Account Switch Service (all the hard work to allow users to move to Monzo quickly and easily).

Lending The Lending team works on making borrowing money simple, fair and transparent. They’ve already shipped and scaled overdrafts to hundreds of thousands of Monzo customers and they’ve made it easy to take out a loan without the unfair fees or confusing pricing that you find elsewhere. They work on everything from the way borrowing works in the app, right down to how they move and account for money that our customers borrow. One of the most interesting problems they face is deciding how much to lend and to whom. The team believes that they can make access to credit fairer and more transparent.

Logistics

We can help you relocate to London, we can sponsor visas, and we’re open to remote working (as long as you can spend around 20% of your time in London).

We offer competitive salaries based on skills and experience, which could be anywhere between £40,000 - £100,000 per year.

Software Engineer (Go) with Utility Warehouse
Colindale, London, United Kingdom / Remote £45k - £90k

Job Description

Company

Utility Warehouse is a FTSE 250 organisation which has established itself as the most trusted supplier of utility products in the UK. Utility Warehouse is the only genuine multi-utility operator in the market providing gas, electricity, landline, broadband, mobile & insurance products and services to households and businesses nationwide, all on one single monthly bill. With over 600,000 customers the organisation has grown through a philosophy of offering savings, simplicity and service. Customers enjoy a number of advantages, including membership of a discount club, and a unique CashBack reward system on everyday shopping. The organisation does not advertise, preferring instead to invest in customer services and to keep prices low. Utility Warehouse has predominantly grown through a network of over 45,000 partners who operate as lead generators and advocates for the organisation. These partners come from a range of personal and professional backgrounds, and actively take it upon themselves to promote and recommend Utility Warehouse to friends, families and their professional networks. Trust between these partners and the organisation is crucial, and ensures that customer service and satisfaction are consistently prioritised.

Background

Utility Warehouse is an energetic and entrepreneurial challenger in a market traditionally composed of monolithic, slow competitors. In the utilities market, it is difficult to compete on the quality of the product and therefore establishing a strong value proposition is crucial to avoid a race to the bottom on price. Utility Warehouse has established itself as the most trusted brand in its sector, winning accolades from industry publications and consumer advisory guides. Customer service is at the core of their business ethos and another way they differentiate from their competitors; 93% of customers would recommend the organisation to a friend. By establishing a best-in-class experience for the consumer, Utility Warehouse commands a strong market position in an age where technology makes it increasingly easy to access information on consumers’ experiences. The organisation is well-placed to capture an increasingly large portion of the £52bn market that they operate in. By staying true to their values of trust and service, Utility Warehouse is the only major provider in the market to be both growing and profitable.

Utility Warehouse has an adaptive, agile, fast-paced culture which has enabled it to grow rapidly. The management team has expanded over the last two years as part of the growth strategy with significant hires in technology, legal, marketing, and finance. These hires and the rebuilding of the platform will enable the company to grow to two million customers over the medium-term. Utility Warehouse operates at high-transactional scale, processing large volumes of data. This presents new opportunities to understand customer behaviours better and to create an improved customer experience as a result.

Opportunity

With ambitious product plans for the future, it is important to have a solid foundation to enable growth for the business, allow innovation and achieve rapid time to market. To realise this, the underlying platforms and systems must be designed to be flexible, modular and resilient.

You will join our Insurance team tasked with designing and building the insurance platform from the ground up to enable new opportunities to our insurance product and services.

The platform will be a set of simple and intelligent APIs built using microservices and event driven architectures. Internally, the decision and rating engines will leverage integration with numerous 3rd party systems to provide quotes, offer addons, allow policy uptake and operational management.

Key responsibilities

  • Design, architect and build multi-channel platform solutions
  • Contribute ideas and influence business wide solution architecture
  • Build robust and scalable end-to-end software solutions
  • Participate in the entire development life cycle, from requirements to delivery
  • Influence other team members in a cross functional product team
  • Build integrations with legacy systems with a focus on eventually moving away from them

Key requirements

  • Good engineering skill with an eye for both modelling and code architecture
  • Knowledge of when and how to apply test driven approaches
  • Understanding of microservice/service oriented and distributed architectures
  • Understanding of event source and/or event driven architectures
  • Belief in agile principles and a devops culture and be familiar working in a agile enviornment
  • Experience with a modern programming language (preferably golang)
  • Experience with containers and container orchestration technology will be beneficial but not essential

Founding Engineer with Metomic
London, United Kingdom£60k - £80k
3 months ago

Job Description

Hey!

Do you like solving problems? Building things? Breaking things? Experimenting with things? (because we do)

Come on, the answer’s yes already …

We’d like you onboard!

We’re funded, we’re early, we’re moving super fast, and we’re about to solve a MASSIVE problem. At Metomic, we’re building the “privacy by design” infrastructure of the internet. Technologies plug together like Lego - it’s about time that our preferences, consent and sharing permissions do the same.

It’s a greenfield opportunity. We have:

  • A vision to make data ethics globally important. We want to make data-misuse a thing of the past. We want to give every product and service in the world a permissions screen.
  • A wide-open green field of freshly baked services
  • A young and pliable tech stack and infrastructure
  • Energy and drive in abundance

We love awesome engineering, and awesome engineers:

  • We’re playing with Docker, Typescript/NodeJS, Go, a smidge of Python, React, rapid prototyping, metrics-metrics-metrics and tight feedback loops
  • We love autonomy and ownership, and believe in empowering our team
  • We like polyglots! If you take like a duck to water with new languages, we don’t care if you haven’t used much of ours

You’re curious, creative and smart

And modest, too. Here are some of the other things that you have:

  • A curious mind. A love for the question “why”
  • Flexibility. Your peers say you can turn your hand to pretty much anything you set your mind to
  • Good communication skills. We’re a small team!
  • The ability to code (no surprises here). You are comfortable in two or more languages
  • The ability to build fast
  • A working knowledge of devops. You can spin up a cloud hosted prototype in a jiffy…
  • … or have sufficient google skills to make it look like you already could

…and you have a wide set of interests:

Perhaps in your free time you’ve dabbled with front-end. Or painting. Or robots. Or a markov-chain Trump-tweet generator. In which case can you take it down please? It’s currently running the United States.

Hey you said full-stack … but “dabbled” with front-end?

Yes. We don’t need you to be a front-end person. We’re looking for a great engineer in general, not a specialism - and this is the closest tag we could decide upon. So if you’ve ever felt “But I do lots of things! How do I present myself as capable doer of multitudinous things?” then you’re perfect. “So do I need to build the front-end” Nope!

Unless that’s your burning passion, in which case, hey, we’ll hook you up.

What else? I want more. Open-source? Dev talks? Community?

Ok, we’re going to be hitting the noise channels pretty hard to make a bit of a racket. We’re engineers, and a lot of other engineers are getting on board with this idea of doing shared data “right”.

So for us that means: meetups, blogging, tech talks, open-sourcing, spec-defining and platform designing. There will be lots of pizza and snacks because we’re supposed to like pizza and snacks and Richard’s pretty health conscious so there’ll be some kind of vegetable presence too.

And if you like the sound of having a voice in the community, we will absolutely make that happen.

Whoa whoa wait, the salary?

Of course. We believe in hiring good people, and paying them well. This is a big role, it comes with a big salary. We’re also offering equity, because we want everyone to be in the same boat.

Ok I’m sold. Let’s chat.

Great! Our CTO Ben gets a small electric shock for every application; so even if you’re not interested you should try it out to keep him on his feet.

Software Engineer (Go)

Technology

London NW9 5AB, UK

Utility Warehouse is an award winning multi-utility provider, our core offering is simple: all your utilities, one monthly bill. Our network of 45,000 partners add the human touch to our delivery, help us get the word out to our existing members and bring in new ones. We consistently win the Which? awards for our service and don’t believe “good enough” exists when it comes to customer satisfaction.

We’ve got the culture and focus of the earliest stage startups with the resources and strength of an extremely profitable and loved brand. Our eyes are on meteoric growth over the next few years. All the pieces to make it happen are here, we need you to help us put them together.

Our philosophy revolves around getting things done and we only hire people we can trust to do that. Bring your A game and you’ll always get ours. If you’re the type that can deliver you’ll be rewarded with small, fully autonomous teams that have real ownership of their products using a cutting edge stack in a best-idea-wins meritocracy. If that doesn’t quite cut it, we can throw in flexible and remote working (no, really) with top of market compensation.

As for the tech we use: the best tool is the right tool. Go and React are our bread and butter but nothing is stopping you from reaching for something else if it does it better. We deploy to Kubernetes across both AWS and GCP with some help from Terraform. We run a mature event sourced microservice architecture using Kafka, NATS and GRPC. As much as is possible we code in the open on GitHub. If it can be open- sourced, it shall. If we can submit a PR instead of building our own, we will. Getting your hands dirty from the top to the bottom of the stack isn’t a promise to be broken, it’s a requirement. If you’re only good at parts of it that’s okay, we’ll quickly make you good at all of it.
