If you are interested in this role email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV, and one feature about Golang that you like and why!
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.
Distributed Systems Engineer - to help us build a public, decentralised, blockchain-backed legal agreements network
£40,000 - £80,000 plus options (ESOP).
Relocation package available for the right candidate. This role could also be based in our Edinburgh office.
Candidates currently based outside of London or Edinburgh must indicate their preferred location and willingness to relocate in their cover letter.
We are looking for kind, talented software engineers to help us make smart iterations on our legal agreements network as we deploy successive test networks.
Monax were pioneers of permissioned blockchains and smart contracts and we are building our Agreements Network to allow new and more efficient forms of legal transacting.
Exploiting the benefits of various decentralised, distributed, and masterless technologies - chiefly Hyperledger Burrow, which Monax built from scratch and still maintains based on the Tendermint consensus engine.
You will have the chance to work on a system that has distributed consensus and validation in a low trust environment at its heart and offers very interesting challenges, these could be:
Working with multiple clusters of nodes, most of which are not under your control to handle semi-automated network upgrades and governance votes. How do you upgrade a network you do not control?
Using cryptographic primitives like Verifiable Random Functions to orchestrate churn amongst network validators
Build package manager and compiler integrations for deploying and testing smart contracts
Implement low-level virtual machine instructions and improvements to our Ethereum Virtual Machine implementation
Working with our CTO on our Node Distribution Team you can expect to quickly own significant parts of our stack, and make decisions that will affect the company’s future viability in a fast-moving space (public permissioned consensus networks). You would also work closely with our Product Team who are responsible for building the foundational smart contracts, the business process modelling engine that drives the Agreements Network and also our particular front end (the network is open to extension by any of our co-founders however).
Your role will give you the chance to work across all teams in the business and it will also give you the opportunity to leave your mark in a growing industry, where you need to evaluate existing best practices and apply them to new technological paradigms and new programming languages. Navigating between the hype, the detractors and the zealots we believe there is real value in our approach and we intend to prove it.
You will join a business building a genuinely novel system, that in part intends to create an entirely new market by enabling legal products that challenge existing legal services.
This role would suit a talented software engineer, with solid technical skills in and a minimum of 3-4 years of software development experience. We are also open to engineers who can bring significantly more experience to the role. If you are a good match for Monax, we are willing to create a role that suits you.
Who do we need? Someone who has:
Go experience or the ability to pick it up in a few weeks
Kubernetes experience or the ability to pick it up in a few weeks
A degree-level qualification in a numerate discipline or equivalent evidence of analytic and reasoning skills and theoretical thinking
A good knowledge of algorithms and data structures
A hacker mentality towards making things work
An ability for long form design work ‘on pencil and paper’
An ineffable marmot-ness
It is crucial that you are able to take part in forceful yet respectful technical discussions with colleagues and that you are able to change your mind about something if required, and also are able to change other’s minds.
Real things you might work on:
Build a Kubernetes operator for Hyperledger Burrow
Devise a way to compress/normalise data in our merkle tree to control our long-term storage usage
Implement an atomic swap with public Ethereum to represent value on our chain
Write optimised native (Go) functions, callable from evm, to implement graph traversal over our business processes
Build fee allocation and distribution models that help maintain our network and provide the correct incentives
What can Monax offer you?
Extremely marketable blockchain and cryptocurrency skills.
The chance to make blockchain systems live up to their hype by making them highly operable, our network will be operated peer-to-peer by many parties and this needs to be as painless as possible.
Experience in blending distributed, decentralised, and centralised systems. To spend time working on something foundational at the level of a network architecture.
The chance to spend time thinking ‘around the software’; about law, economics, and game theory.
You will have a high level of autonomy. The business has just enough hierarchy, consensus and individual project responsibility (c.f. design-by-committee) favoured over diktats.
Flexible working - the successful candidate will be based in our London or Edinburgh work space primarily, but there is scope for flexible working and choosing your own hours and place of work when established.
Relocation assistance is available for the right candidate.
Who will you be working with?
Around fifteen people in our passionate cross functional team, including time with:
Our CTO in London, who would be your primary daily contact
Our CPO in New York, with whom you’ll liaise with to ensure the distribution platform and product stack work harmoniously.
Product Team members currently building the application stack.
Our Legal Engineers in New York providing crucial context to how legal products on the platform will be used
Our CEO in Edinburgh for just about anything else...
Monax would like to build a better system for contracting for the good of humanity and other forms of life. To learn more please visit:

Software Engineer Pivotal London, United Kingdom £60,000 to £75,000 a year
1 Applicants This Week
More Than 6 Months Old
This job posting is no longer available
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 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.
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.
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

Backend Engineer Resin London, United Kingdom / Remote $53,000 to $58,000 a year
4 Applicants This Week
More Than 6 Months Old
Resin.io provides a software platform that helps developers build, deploy and manage code on connected devices. We brought Docker to embedded GNU/Linux devices in 2013 and have been building our IoT toolkit ever since. We also maintain a variety of successful open source projects including Etcher, Balena, and resinOS, and made contributions to high-exposure projects such as Docker, Electron, and AppImage.
Our technology is open, standards-based, and proven in production across a wide range of scenarios from drones, 3D printers, point-of-sale devices, tidal turbines, skyscrapers and more. Our investors include DFJ, Aspect Ventures, GE, and Ericsson.
Resin is a highly distributed, remote-friendly company with a pretty much flat hierarchy. Our organization is adaptive, getting feedback signals from our users and systems. Right now we organize ourselves by projects, which allow us to build complex features and solve big problems, while staying mutable. As a distributed group, we rely on clear communication and the rule of "assume positive intent" to help us work together across time zones, cultures and first languages. Our base of operations is nominally London, though really we are living all over the world: from Barcelona to Bulgaria, Argentina to Vietnam, and many more.
On being a Backend Engineer at resin.io
We maintain a service infrastructure for IoT devices, and this is where we have quite a bit of our engineering talent. You will be actively working on one or more of these core components, fixing bugs, solving complex technical problems, and implementing user-facing features across the resin.io stack. While resin.io focuses on IoT, the majority of our engineers don't require embedded programming expertise.
People who are successful engineers are well-rounded generalists and great communicators. They are eager to take responsibility for a project, and are able to make good decisions about the project because they have the context of what's important.
We don't require engineers to be already familiar with the technologies we use. We are happy to invest in people that showcase a strong understanding of the challenges of building secure distributed systems.

Understand the high-level goals, and thus know how to prioritize your work
Challenge orthodoxy when that will help the product evolve
