1 Applicants This Week

Job Description

**Distributed systems engineer Node.js

What makes Ably special?**
Ably helps power next generation digital experiences. Ones which are live rather than static, where data is in motion rather than at rest. Things like live chat, realtime location tracking, live document collaboration, gaming and eLearning. We've gained the trust of some the largest businesses in the world to integrate us into their stacks, businesses such as HubSpot, OfferUp, Tennis Australia and CA Technologies. We also work with a diverse range of tech startups globally powering features such as an air traffic control system for drones. Working at Ably means you are working on a cutting-edge product that is helping global brands shape the future.

What we can offer you – in brief
You will learn with the best. You will have autonomy and freedom to experiment and improve. You will be part of a dynamic team and a business that is taking off. We recently completed a $1m financing round to fuel our growth. We have the best technology, and the best people in the industry.

Join us now and you’ll be early in at a business going places, you’ll learn a lot, you’ll work with the founding team, and you’ll have fun.

What we want in return – in brief We want someone smart, ambitious, curious and motivated. Someone is prepared to do their best and work their arse off to do great work and become outstanding at what they do.

Job description
You'll be working with a deeply technical engineering team who collectively bring a wealth of experience and broad technology skills. The calibre of the code we produce is what excites us each day and motivates us each. If you enjoy solving hard distributed system problems that are mostly platform agnostic and theoretical in nature, then you'll love working at Ably. Our team is made up of a strong remote contingent, however our base is in London and growing. We are strong believers in face-to-face communication where possible. Whilst this is a remote working role, being able to practically travel to London occasionally is highly preferable and working on a similar time zone is a must.

Day to day you can expect to be working on:

  • The "core" realtime platform which is largely Node.js, and some shared services in Go. You may also be required to work on the various services and routing layers of the platform which are built in Go and Elixir (we would happy if you are comfortable in either Go or Elixir, both would be a big win). As an aside, we use Ruby for all infrastructure automation and orchestration and occasionally write lower-level native code where necessary (such as native modules for Node). We're always revisiting the technologies we use and are always open to using new technologies where suitable.
  • Working within the realtime platform and solving distributed programming problems. Find out what it takes to be a distributed systems engineer.
  • Collaborating with the team to design, discuss and implement new features and services.
  • Diagnosing and fixing bugs in our platform using distributed tracing techniques.
  • Adding suitable test coverage to new features as well as existing functionality, conducting load tests using our frameworks, and generally helping to address platform stability and regression prevention.
  • Be responsible for the complete lifecycle of your features and code i.e. pull request, reviews, testing, deploy to staging and sandbox environments, then into production environments with ownership of any issues that arise. We are strong believers in all developers being involved in the system operations as well.
  • Contributing to open source projects that we support or use in our products. All of our client libraries are open source as well and may require your support at times.
  • Helping customers solve problems they are experiencing that may help us find bugs in the platform.
  • Support the wider team in regards to documentation and customer support.
  • Suggestions for new features or improvements to our protocol and API specifications.

Perks & Benefits

  • Salary range: £35k to £65k. Depends entirely on skills and experience.
  • Holidays: 25+ days excluding national holidays. Can be negotiated.
  • Benefit from a truly flexible working environment in which remote working and managing your own working time is the norm.
  • Work in an environment where code quality, technical challenges and delivery is what we all care about.
  • Skills development is intrinsic in the job. We're largely working on unsolved problems each day, and such, there is plenty of scope to widen your knowledge and skillset.
  • Work with genuinely nice people who care.

Engineering at Bud

The software engineering team are tasked with solving highly technical problems to enable solutions that tangibly benefit the lives of millions of people. From how to scale our solutions to tens of millions of users in the most effective manner of integrating hundreds of third-party businesses. Data is key to our business and we need passionate developers to help capture it, store it, transform it, research and most importantly secure it.

What is it like to work for Bud?

We could play buzzword bingo but one of our core values is 'Authentic' and the best way to demonstrate this is by sharing our employee engagement dashboard. This provides a weekly engagement and NPS score giving you a true reflection of life at Bud. All data collected is realtime & anonymised so we have no control over what you see.

The dashboard is interactive so check it out here and have a look at what the numbers mean, https://bit.ly/2MhjAZT

A bit more about us

We’re a diverse group of people. With backgrounds ranging from data science to music production, more than 80% of our team come from outside the world of finance – providing us with a unique perspective as we help consumers feel more in control of their lives. For us, an interest in people comes first; finance follows.

More about what we're doing

The apps and infrastructure we’re building are designed to place the power of personal data back into the hands of normal people. Picture this: a world where your bank knew you were paying too much for your gas bill and could switch you to a more suitable provider, or understood your savings targets and could automatically find you a better deal. That’s what we’re working towards.

We believe that diversity will make us better.

Bud’s mission is to make the money part of people’s lives simple. To get there, we need a workforce that is diverse as the people we create our products for. Which means we need people who have different backgrounds and experiences, who are diverse in age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, and ways of thinking. We truly believe that these differences will make us grow as a company and a team. We strive to create a workplace and culture where our people are empowered, supported, given equal opportunities and can bring their authentic selves to work.

In these early stages of the product lifecycle, we get firsthand insight into the challenges, complaints, and excitement of our customers through a customer support rotation

What working in the Chatkit team looks like

  • The Chatkit team uses a modern tech stack. Our services are written in Go and deployed on Kubernetes. Pusher uses and supports many other projects from the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.
  • The Chatkit team subscribes to the lean methodology. We work in short iterations with as little bureaucracy as possible. We value continuous improvement and expect team members to voice their concerns early and often so that we may address things before they become problems.
  • The Chatkit team breaks down silos through collaborating, information sharing, and pairing. We rotate ownership of interesting problems like benchmarking, and encourage pairing on new proposals and SDKs.

What Pusher is like

We strongly believe in the importance of diversity and inclusion. They not only provide a better working environment but also improve the quality of our services. We welcome people of different nationalities, backgrounds, experiences, abilities and perspectives.

We are here to help our customers build delightful applications. By solving significant engineering challenges and packaging them into easy to use APIs, we let developers focus on making their users happy.

We put emphasis on collaboration between people and teams. Everyone is on the same mission, so sharing work helps us reach our goals faster. Throwing problems over the wall and pointing fingers at each other is not our style.

We strive for transparency. Keeping everyone well-informed is crucial for building trust, efficiency and satisfaction at work.
