Job Description

Our mission is to give every person on the planet fast and affordable internet. We remove traditional internet infrastructure costs by developing technology which allows any device to be used as a cloud server. Using this tech, we will build a global distributed cloud platform. We are working at the forefront of distributed systems, peer-to-peer networking, and cloud systems.

Flare’s first product is a peer-to-peer CDN, designed to be faster and cheaper than incumbents. We are looking for someone to help us tackle the scalability challenges around our product. You will help us design and build out our caching, messaging, and routing systems to work across millions of nodes. You will have significant input and control over the architecture of these systems, to help us ensure that they are scalable, reliable, and fast.

We raised a £1.1m seed round earlier this year, and are backed by some of the original investors of Protocol Labs, Transferwise, and Zoopla. We have already partnered with industry heavyweights like the Guardian Media Group (one of the largest media platforms in the world), and our advisory board includes the ex-CEO of BitTorrent, ex-CTO of Shazam, and one of Akamai’s founding architects.

You will be a core team member in a fast-moving startup, working alongside talented engineers to build and ship a product that will be used by millions. You will be one of the first employees at Flare, and you will have direct input over the architecture and design of Flare’s systems. It is an unparalleled opportunity to grow and learn in a startup environment, and have direct impact on Flare’s direction.

We are looking for someone who has built and deployed performant and distributed systems at scale (preferably in Golang). We expect that you have experience working with the major cloud providers (AWS/GCP), ideally in high-load systems. You should be familiar with CDN architectures (caches, origin servers, proxies, etc), the networking stack, and the infrastructure of the internet.

Backend Engineer
Cuvva
London, United Kingdom
£75,000 to £90,000 a year
August 2021

More Than 6 Months Old

Job Description

About Cuvva

Cuvva is making car insurance radically better.

We’re creating truly flexible products that meet people’s real needs. Using lightning-fast technology to unlock better experiences and fairer prices for our customers, Cuvva is building the future of insurance every day.

Cuvva was the first UK company to sell hourly insurance through an app. Since then we’ve sold over 3 million policies and supported over 450,000 customers. We’re a world-class team of over 100 people, passionate about solving our customers’ problems. Join us.

Why work for Cuvva?

We don’t cut corners. We strive to do the right thing, even when that makes life more difficult for us.

We are customer centric and everyone in every area of the business–including our CEO & Founder Freddy–is expected to spend a few hours a month on customer support. This is so we all fully understand customer needs and how the app works! Here’s a blog post on our ‘Cops Club’.

We’ve nurtured an awesome team culture. We always speak up when we have an idea - but also know when to let go and get behind something else. And we’re comfortable giving and receiving honest feedback, and trying new ways of doing things.

We’re building a diverse team from different backgrounds, outlooks and experiences. Everyone is given a fair chance of getting a role at Cuvva. Even if you secretly don’t love insurance, trust us, you’ll love what we’re building.

About the role

You’ll work in one of our cross-functional product squads, helping the team achieve their goals - whether that’s building a new service in our backend platform, creating a new version of an existing API to deliver a new feature, or creating a CLI tool to automate something.

We work in a highly collaborative fashion, and maintain an open and transparent work environment. Engineers at Cuvva don’t just write code or implement against a spec. You’ll be expected and encouraged to take part in the entire product development process from problem-discovery to solution design, to implementation and rollout.

Each product squad autonomously owns an area of the Cuvva product. Squads are made up of engineers from multiple disciplines (backend, web, iOS, Android), product and content designers, and a product manager. Engineers at Cuvva come from a variety of backgrounds and have different but complementary skill sets. We don’t require a computer science degree - many of us are self-taught.

Our approach

We value consistently-written, simple, resilient systems. Our backend is made up of many standalone services with a JSON-based RPC interface. We aim to create a client-agnostic API design suitable for a variety of clients (mobile apps, website, internal tooling, 3rd parties). Because we’re a regulated financial company, we have interesting and rigorous requirements to meet with regards to data security and auditability.

Most systems are written in Go (some older ones are Javascript), backed by either Postgres or Mongo, and are hosted in a container environment. We heavily lean on AWS tooling such as S3, Lambda, and SQS, and we occasionally build integrations with more “legacy” 3rd party systems in the insurance industry.

You can find out more about our backend systems here: Our libraries and Go tooling is open sourced on GitHub “Showing off our K-sortable IDs” our blog

“How we analyse and test new pricing models” our blog

“How we test and roll out new product features” our blog

You'll do great here if you:

• Have genuine interest and curiosity about the Cuvva product, and consumer insurance in general

• Enjoy working as a team to solve problems collaboratively

• Have around 5 years of experience building rock-solid backend systems and APIs

• Have a track record of shipping great quality code with real customer impact

• Be comfortable and productive working with Go

• We don’t require commercial Go experience but you would be expected to have a basic understanding and a willingness to learn

• Having a background with at least one statically-typed language is a good sign

• Know your way around the major AWS services (or similar cloud services), and have an enthusiasm for cloud services in general

• Be comfortable working with containers (e.g. Docker, K8S, ECR, container based CI platforms)


Perks & Benefits

Benefits

As well as a competitive salary (£75-90k, dependent on experience) and equity based remuneration, benefits of working at Cuvva include:

• Brand new MacBook 💻

• 33 days holiday (inc public holidays🌞)

• Flexible working

• Wellbeing, personal development and work from home budgets

• Yearly increases to budgets and holiday allowances

• Generous parental leave policy

• One-to-one sessions with our Sanctus mental health coaches, giving you a safe space to talk 🧠

• Access to Lifeworks - our mental health tool and employee assistance programme

• Mates rates on your car insurance

• Salary sacrifice schemes for electric bike hire and electric car lease

• Cycle to work scheme 🚲

• Season ticket loans 🚂

• A volunteer day

• Office library full of great books 📚

• Great coffee machine in the office ☕️

• Fully stocked beer and soft drink fridge (we do team drinks every Thursday)

• Monthly team outings or remote events (so far we’ve done things like karaoke, go-karting, bowling and comedy nights) 🎤

Project Galileo: We equip politically and artistically important organizations and journalists with powerful tools to defend themselves against attacks that would otherwise censor their work, technology already used by Cloudflare’s enterprise customers--at no cost.

Athenian Project: We created Athenian Project to ensure that state and local governments have the highest level of protection and reliability for free, so that their constituents have access to election information and voter registration.

Path Forward Partnership: Since 2016, we have partnered with Path Forward, a nonprofit organization, to create 16-week positions for mid-career professionals who want to get back to the workplace after taking time off to care for a child, parent, or loved one.

1.1.1.1: We released 1.1.1.1 to help fix the foundation of the Internet by building a faster, more secure and privacy-centric public DNS resolver. This is available publicly for everyone to use - it is the first consumer-focused service Cloudflare has ever released. Here’s the deal - we don’t store client IP addresses never, ever. We will continue to abide by our privacy policy and ensure that no user data is sold to advertisers or used to target consumers.

Job Description

Consul helps organizations automate network configurations, discover services, and enable secure connectivity across any cloud or runtime. We recently launched Hashicorp Consul Service on Azure, a fully managed application available through the Azure marketplace. We’ve also announced the availability of Consul on AWSthrough our flagship HashiCorp Cloud Platform (HCP), a self-service, fully managed platform offering HashiCorp products as a service to automate infrastructure on any cloud.

About HashiCorp

HashiCorp is a fast-growing startup that solves development, operations, and security challenges in infrastructure so organizations can focus on business-critical tasks. We build products to give organizations a consistent way to manage their move to cloud-based IT infrastructures for running their applications. Our products enable companies large and small to mix and match AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and other clouds as well as on-premises environments, easing their ability to deliver new applications for their business.

At HashiCorp, we have used the Tao of HashiCorp as our guiding principles for product development and operate according to a strong set of company principles for how we interact with each other. We value top-notch collaboration and communication skills, both among internal teams and in how we interact with our users.

Engineering at HashiCorp is largely a remote team. While prior experience working remotely isn't required, we are looking for team members who perform well given a high level of independence and autonomy.

About the Role:

On the Consul team, we help organizations automate network configurations, discover services, and enable secure connectivity across any cloud or runtime. The customers and large community of users of our tools are operators, infrastructure engineers, and software developers that encounter novel performance, scaling, and usability challenges that we help them solve.

Consul started as an infrastructure management tool for service discovery and health checking, and has evolved to become a full-featured service mesh. Some of the functionality you’ll be working on will include proxy integrations, Envoy’s xDS APIs, certificate management for mutual TLS connectivity, and security through service-oriented Intentions. You’ll be an active contributor to the service mesh ecosystem, following new developments in emerging technology and competitive offerings, looking for opportunities for product differentiation, and rethinking product architecture to meet new global scale and organizational demands.

In this role you can expect to:

  • Program mostly in Go, learning from and contributing to a team committed to continually improving their skills.
  • Build and architect distributed systems for service connectivity across heterogeneous environments (Kubernetes, VMs, bare metal datacenter or edge deployments).
  • Interface directly with internal teams, users and HashiCorp customers, as well as the larger Consul community.
  • Participate in user research studies and discussions with product managers and customers to better understand the network topologies, challenges, and constraints for which operators are trying to solve, and leverage those insights when approaching feature design and implementation.
  • Propose new functionality or substantive changes through written documents in an async process, describing the problem background, proposed implementation and example UX, then iterating on peer feedback collaboratively.
  • Own the full lifecycle of feature development from design through testing, release and support.

You may be a good fit for our team if you have:

  • Experience in a lower-level language like Go.
  • Familiarity with service-oriented architectures, and ideally have worked on an infrastructure or platform team building internal tooling to deploy, connect and monitor them.
  • Empathy for the people operating, learning, teaching and supporting software you write, and consider their experience when making design decisions and performance, security or complexity tradeoffs.
  • Awareness of the broader service mesh ecosystem and an interest in contributing to a full-featured product offering while reducing complexity and barriers to adoption for practitioners.
  • Curiosity for academic computer science research, particularly distributed systems papers such as Raft and Paxos variants, and enjoy learning more about the challenges of consistency at global scale.
  • Collaborate with peer engineers in discussions around performance, user experience, security and other constraints when designing complex systems.

What is our hiring process like?

The below serves as a basic outline; we may choose to add or remove steps based on the information that we gather during the process.

  • Introductory Call with someone from our recruiting team.
  • First Interview with an Engineering Manager
  • Interview Loop with additional team members, with the following panel:
    • Technical Code Pairing interview
    • Code Review interview
    • Communication and Collaboration interview
    • Systems and architecture interview
  • If applicable, a final conversation with the Engineering Manager for the team you would be joining
  • Offer

We do our best to accommodate your programming language of choice for technical interviews.

About the Application Process:

Please note, as collaboration and communication are a critical aspect of how we work, a cover letter is a great way to provide a sample of how you communicate.

In your cover letter, please describe why you're interested in working at HashiCorp, and what draws you to this role in particular. Specifics of your past experience that are relevant to this role are great to include, too.

HashiCorp embraces diversity and equal opportunity. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. We believe the more inclusive we are, the better our company will be.

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.
