Job Description

WHO WE ARE

We’re a tech-first scale-up regarded as one of the hottest payments fintechs in London. Founded in 2016, our cloud-native payments platform is used by over 25 of the most exciting and disruptive banks and fintechs in the world including N26, Holvi, Viva, Tandem and Ebury.

WHAT IT’S LIKE TO WORK HERE

Building greatness in a disruptive era requires strong ambition, talent, curiosity, diversity of thought and a belief that we’re better together. We want our employees to grow whilst with us so we’ve created an environment that encourages everyone to learn, challenge each other and create extraordinary experiences for themselves, their colleagues and our customers. We are continually on the lookout for talented people from all backgrounds that can further contribute to this amazing culture.

OUR TECHNICAL ENVIRONMENT

Our Engineering Team consists of over sixty five Senior Software Developers that are responsible for the end-to-end ownership of our platform, from architecture through to infrastructure. Individually they are all exceptional at what they do, but by working collaboratively within a team, consistently applying best-practice and automating absolutely everything they are able to build world-class software for our customers.

We don’t mind whereabouts our Developers are based as we are happy for our team to work from anywhere in the UK or EU, with most of them choosing to work remotely most of the time. That being said, we do also have London and Amsterdam offices, so should they ever wish to work from these, they are most welcome.

THE TOOLS WE USE

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

Languages: Go (and some Java, Python, Ruby)

Tools: Kubernetes, Terraform, Docker, Vault, Consul, Linkerd, AWS: SQS, SNS, EC2, RDS

Methodologies: Agile, Scrum, Kanban, TDD, BDD, Pair-Programming

THE SKILLS WE’RE LOOKING FOR

Whilst experience of the above technologies would be nice, it is by no means essential. We are looking to speak with well-rounded, Senior Software Developers who have a breadth of experience across a variety of programming languages, have an understanding of distributed systems and cloud computing alongside an appreciation of automation and the DevOps culture. Candidates should also value the importance of code quality and software development best-practice, whilst being passionate about technology and enjoy working collaboratively within a team.


Interview Process

Our hiring process varies depending on the role and the candidate, but this should give you an idea of the steps you should expect to follow:

Phone screen with our Talent Team (30-45 minutes)

Take home assignment written in Go (approx 4-8 hours)

Technical interview with 3 members of our Engineering Team via video-link (1 hour 30 minutes)

Golang Developer with ActiveState
Vancouver, BC, Canada / Remote$40k - $100k
1 year ago

Job Description

Are you a Golang developer that’s passionate about developer tooling? ActiveState is looking for developers to level up their end-user tooling team. This team is mainly responsible for “the State Tool”, a new command line tool we’re developing that allows you to quickly jump-start runtime environments for your projects. Backed by ActiveState’s new platform we’ll be able to provide developer tooling unlike any you’ve seen before.

If you know Python, Perl, or Tcl you’ve probably heard of ActiveState’s language distros. Now we’re building an ambitious language distribution platform and set of tools so that coders can focus on coding and spend less time worrying about dependency hell, third party vulnerabilities, and inconsistent developer environments.  We’re doing this for every language and platform on the planet (and beyond). We need your help to do it! Best of all you’ll be working on a product that you’ll use yourself daily.

This position is based out of our headquarters in beautiful Vancouver, BC. Remote work will be considered, but only for candidates in North America.

WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING

Your job is to help us build the tools that take the pain out of developing code in teams. Our lofty goal is to replace the venerable README file with a single command. You’ll work on command line clients, editor tooling, and more. While a primary amount of your job will be described as back-end work you must be comfortable with a little front-end work as well.

When not working on code, you’ll be meeting with your team to figure out priorities, features, technical issues, etc. You’re someone with good technical knowledge who also has an interest in the end-product you’ll be building.

Our day to day work practices are centered around GitHub, pull requests, code review, CI for testing, and agile development with Pivotal Tracker as our project management tool. We’re always looking to improve our practices and we expect you to help us to do so.

We’re a polyglot company and embrace using the best language for the given task at hand. You’ll regularly find Golang, Elm, Javascript, Python, Docker, Kubernetes, DCOS, CircleCI, and other modern tools. Quality is as important as speed. We’re building for the long run, so you’ll need to be proficient in writing tests and documentation too.

Our back ends and command line tools for interacting with our Platform are written in Go. While certain extended components of the platform that you might interact with from time to time are written in Elm and Python. We’re also aiming to get a foothold in TypeScript for future editor plugin work.

The team is scattered around the US and Canada, so we coordinate with each other and the rest of the company using Slack for chat, Highfive for video calls and screen sharing, Pivotal Tracker, and the Google Suite.

We like to use open source software whenever possible, and we also like to contribute back to the open source ecosystem. We embrace open sourcing both libraries and tools developed in-house as long as those are not mission-critical code.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU

  • Working for a stable and growing company that offers the environment and personal growth potential of a start-up.
  • The chance to work with a smart, passionate team of people.
  • The chance to work on a project that will change the work lives of developers around the world, including your own!
  • Competitive salary, bonus, and stock option plan.
  • Comprehensive benefits package and health/wellness credit program.

REQUIREMENTS 

  • Experience with Go.
  • The ability to quickly pick up new languages and technologies.
  • Experience with relational database (mysql, postgres, ..).
  • Basic knowledge of JavaScript and front end development.
  • Experience with all 3 major platforms (Linux, macOS, Windows).
  • The ability to write clean, well-tested code with clear documentation.
  • Excellent written and spoken skills, both technical and non-technical..
  • A willingness to engage in the process of defining our work through conversations with product management, other engineering teams, and the rest of the company.
  • The ability to help others on the team become better at their jobs through mentoring, thoughtful code reviews, and generally being a team player.

ASSETS

If you have experience with any of the following please make sure to highlight it in your cover letter:

  • TypeScript experience.
  • Javascript tooling such as Webpack and frameworks such as React and Redux.
  • Elm experience, especially large Single Page Apps.
  • Microservices and message queues.
  • Good working knowledge of Docker.
  • Experience building both web based and desktop based software.
  • Docker, Mesos, DCOS, Kubernetes.
  • Functional programming languages.
  • Experience Creating parsers, compilers or code intelligence systems
  • Deep understanding Process management on Windows or Unix environments
  • Work with reactive, event based systems
  • Low level architecture (sockets, primitive data types like in C) and the ability to interface and interact with low level libraries (e.g. debuggers).
