Senior Software Developer (Golang) - 100% Remote (UK/EU Only) with Form3Sponsored
Remote / Europe£80k - £95k
3 weeks ago

Job Description

This is a 100% remote role. UK/EU based only.

We are looking for Senior Software Developers who want to help build the next generation payment API in the cloud.

We’d like to hear from enthusiastic polyglot developers who want to work with the latest technologies, solve interesting problems and be part of a really great team. There are a wide range of problems to tackle, from configuring nginx proxies to writing custom payment routing and handling logic, and we contribute open source back to the community. We believe that the language you write the code in is just how you convey your solution to the computer and the real value is being able to think through a problem.

You will be working on new development projects, focused on best practice across the board, including automation of absolutely everything (Terraform for infrastructure deployments to AWS, CI/CD with contract-based testing and auto-deployment of services within Docker containers, etc.), pair programming and TDD/BDD. Although many of us live around London, we are operating as a remote team, and typically working from home and pair programming.

It’s very much a “best tool for the job” mentality at Form3 and our tech-stack is always evolving but to give you a flavour of what we’re currently working with here are some of the tools we use;

  • Some of the languages we currently use are: Golang, Java, Python and Ruby
  • Some of the tools we use: Kubernetes, Terraform, Docker, Vault, Consul, Linkerd
  • Our platform runs in AWS where we use: SQS, SNS, EC2, ECS, RDS and others

We don’t mind whereabouts you are based as we offer the opportunity for our team to work remotely from anywhere in the UK or EU. In fact, most of our Developers work, utilising screen-share technology and pair-programming to share knowledge across the team. That being said, we also have London and Amsterdam offices, so should you occasionally wish to work from these, you’d be most welcome.

Your Experience

  • Polyglot: Choosing the right tool to solve the problem is critical, and we expect you to have professional experience with at least 2 different programming languages and multiple platforms and tools.
  • Distributed architecture: We expect you to have previous experience engineering complex distributed systems, and a view on topics such as service discovery, integration testing, inter-process communication, how to define your services and APIs, as well as experience with distributed data stores.
  • Public cloud: You have worked with public cloud services (AWS, Google Cloud etc.)
  • TDD/BDD: Code quality is key, and we expect you to have worked with Test-driven development (TDD) and Behaviour-driven development (BDD) and be familiar with the use of tools such as Cucumber.

Desirable Experience

  • Most of our code is written in Java and Go, so experience with either would be helpful.
  • All our services are built and managed as docker containers, so Kubernetes, and general docker experience is preferred.
  • We like clean code, so experience with Event Sourcing/CQRS will be useful.
  • We do contract-based testing, using tools such as Pact.
  • We work as a devops team, so experience in automating operations (such as infrastructure as code, automated monitoring and alerting, build pipelines etc) would also be useful.

Whilst experience of the above technologies would be nice, it is by no means essential. We are looking to speak with well-rounded software professionals who have a breadth of experience across a variety of programming languages, are passionate about tech and enjoy working collaboratively within a team.


Perks & Benefits

  • 100% Remote
  • 30 days holiday (plus Bank Holidays)
  • Pair programming, with an experienced team of engineers
  • Competitive salary
  • Latest technologies
  • Company bonus scheme
  • Pension contribution
  • Be part of an incredible and diverse team

Interview Process

  1. Introductory call with the Talent Team at Form3
  2. Technical Test
  3. Technical Interview

Monzo’s security team has a wide range of responsibilities, from infrastructure security to application security. As a bank, we are solving diverse, novel problems to ensure that our customers are safe and secure.

About Herdius:

Herdius is a Berlin based Blockchain Company. We are working on building homomorphic distributed private key generation which then is turned into value bearing products in different sectors. Currently we are very close to open beta-testing for the Herdius-Crypto-Wallet.
What we focus on on the blockchain field specifically is interoperability and trading. When connecting different chains on the key level, users can eliminate communication channels, bridges and complex systems. In other words, users can do cross-exchange and chain token swaps very conveniently and profitably for the user due to the cross-exchange arbitrage opportunities. The broader vision is one day to replace API auth keys with public-private key cryptography in order to provide layered access to user data.

All this makes for a crypto eco system and hedge fund that pays interest on all cryptocurrencies (that right now are unfortunately somewhat unusable and just laying around on wallets).

Besides the Herdius HQ in Berlin our Dev-Team is working mostly remote on different time-zones - so this vacancy surely also is location agnostic.

We would expect you to contribute at least 20hrs per week for part-time but joining full time is possible, too.



Cool things you will work on:

  • Implementation and design of Herdius’ consensus algorithm and p2p order routing protocol.
  • Lots of work around trading and high volume data handling and transfer.
  • Design and implementation of a low-latency, high-availability, and performant algorithmic hedge fund and exchange order book.
  • Integration of the Herdius distributed private key generation protocol.
  • Constant performance testing and improvement of our architecture.
  • Working on new financial products that have not been seen in the crypto world, setting up the base-layer infrastructure of a trading system and hedge fund

Skills & requirements

  • Strong proficiency & experience working with Golang
  • 3+ years of experience as a backend engineer, language agnostic but Go, React, NodeJS, Vue.JS, Scala, Angular, Rust preferred
  • Experience and passion working with distributed systems and networking
  • Strong interest in blockchains and related technologies
  • Passion for delivering quality, secure code with loads of testing
  • User authentication and authorization between multiple systems, servers, and environments

  • Understanding fundamental design principles behind various consensus algorithms
  • Understanding differences between dPOS, DAGs, Plasma, BFT, aBFT, etc.
  • Implementing automated testing platforms and unit tests
  • Proficient understanding of code versioning tools, such as Git

Interview Process

Your education or professional experience at the end of the day does not matter to us. It all comes down to us being convinced by your skills and drive! 
We mainly look for people who are passionate about projects they work on and have the drive to see a project through. Our code is mostly done in Golang with some Solidity for connectivity with Ethereum.

How to apply:

Send anything that reflects on your knowledge and experience in the field. Besides a CV/LinkedIn-profile you can send links of your GitHub/Stack Overflow/Portfolio/ or something awesome you’ve built that you’re simply proud of.

Company

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
