Job Description

Location: Lyon or remote Job type: Full-Time Salary: according to your level of expertise and experience

About Upfluence

Upfluence helps brands tell their story with powerful influencer & content marketing technology. Upfluence’s software allows brands and agencies to identify and contact millions of social influencers and bloggers at scale to execute comprehensive influencer marketing campaigns, as well as provide detailed reporting metrics. Since the launch of our SaaS software in January 2017, the company has yielded a monthly double-digit growth rate, and we are therefore seeking further expansion for our team and offices. Our rapidly growing global team is currently distributed between our offices in NYC, Los Angeles, Switzerland, and Lyon.

We are now looking for a talented and passionate Back-end Engineer who, together with the product team, will take part in creating and constantly improving the online platform.

What we do

  • Our platform aggregates, keeps up to date and serves the content of 5M of influencers across all trending social networks of the internet. This raises a certain amount of engineering challenges related to data, scalability and performance. At the scale we’re at, the naïve solution often isn’t enough.
  • Our backend stack is focused around Golang / Ruby as programming languages, PostgreSQL, Apache Cassandra as database systems, Elasticsearch as a search engine, RabbitMQ as message broker. Also, we use Apache Thrift for RPC and Prometheus for monitoring to name a few.
  • We’re firm believers of micro service architecture and domain driven design, making our codebase highly flexible and reusable. Some parts of our production have actually been running for more than 5 years!
  • We’re DevOps minded. Our backend engineers ship to production multiple times a day and are responsible for their production. We’re always working towards reducing the maintenance toil by automating as much as possible our processes using tools like Github actions or our own in-house frontend deployer.
  • We’re running around 50 applications in production, making it around 1600 containers live, across 90 servers. Not to mention that we’ve been running containers in production for more than 7 years. We’re currently in the works of moving our production workload to Kubernetes.
  • We’re product-centric: we’re not writing code for the sake of it, but to provide the best service to our customers.
  • We strongly believe that collective intelligence is the very root of success for an engineering organization. Each and everyone has a word to say regarding the technical implementation of a feature. That’s why we rely on tools like proposals and RFCs to encourage this culture, as the best companies in the field do.
  • We love open source and contribute to it by opening our own libraries to share them with as many people as possible.

Responsibilities

  • Writing highly reliable, maintainable and tested code that makes the correct assumptions based on the context. You know that in our field, everything is a matter of tradeoffs.
  • Getting involved in the feature lifecycle, from its inception, through its technical design and implementation, to its maintenance in production 3 months / years after releasing it ;-).
  • Work in collaboration with the team, get involved in mentoring juniors, reviewing PRs and writing RFCs. Being at ease with written communication is a must.
  • Work hand in hand with Customer Success and Support teams, to make sure our customers have the best experience using our product.

Who we are looking for

  • You’re eager to discover how our product works and you’re keen to learn and master its technologies. We’re looking for enthusiastic people and great learners who go beyond the tools, not technical experts. Of course, if you already have experience with our stack that’s a plus, but definitely not a requirement.
  • You like to work in a team and to take on challenges, and you are fluent or comfortable working in English. Our team is based mostly in France, but speaking French is not a requirement.
  • You’re reliable: You keep your word when you can, communicate early on and come up with solutions when it looks like [we || you] are running into a wall.
  • You’re not afraid to ask questions and raise issues.
  • You’re a team player.
  • You care about the product and strive to make something useful.

What we can offer you

  • Your spot with the team in one of our awesome Lyon or LA offices, or even remote, either way is fine with us. You’ll be answering issues on Github and making bad jokes on Discord anyway!
  • An entrepreneurial and dynamic startup environment with room for growth;
  • A mixed and international team (10+ nationalities);
  • An empowering and autonomous position in an entrepreneurial environment;
  • Regular exchanges with the US/FR offices;
  • Company shares;
  • The answer to life, the universe and everything;
  • Join a motivated and growing team!

Discover our Stack: https://stackshare.io/upfluence/upfluence
Sounds like the perfect opportunity? Apply now to join us!

Upfluence is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.


Interview Process

The interview process would go through 4 steps as followed:

  1. After sending your resume, the team is in charge of reviewing and selecting candidates: if you are selected, you’ll have the chance to discuss for a 1st interview with 2 members of the team;
  2. If the interview goes well, the team will send a little technical test your way for completion;
  3. Upon the test being sent back, the team is charge of reviewing it and we program a second interview to debrief it with you;
  4. If the test and debrief interview were successful, the last stage consists in an interview with at least one of the founders of the company, to get to know more about you and what you want to accomplish with us.

Backend Go EngineerSponsored

£60,000 to £85,000 a year
August 2021
22 Applicants This Week

Job Description

We’re looking for an experienced Backend Go Software Engineer to join the Geckoboard team!

The Company

At Geckoboard, we know that barriers to data access, understanding, and awareness make it impossible for most businesses to deliver the right data to the right people, putting the transformational potential of data-driven decisions out of reach. We think that’s not only a shame but a huge missed opportunity.

It doesn’t have to be that way. By making data accessible and understandable for everyone, not just professional data analysts, those barriers disappear. Rather than technological complexity, we believe that data-informed people should be at the centre of an organisation’s data strategy.

However, how you build something is just as important as what you’re building. We’re tackling big problems, but we do it in a way that recognises everyone’s need to work with dignity and purpose in a supportive and inclusive environment.

We believe that people do their best work in an atmosphere of openness, trust and transparency, where everyone is empowered to learn and flourish. This is not just lip service, it’s a founding principle that has been at the heart of how we work for over 10 years.

The Job

We’re eagerly looking for an experienced Backend Engineer with experience in using Go to be a key member for one of our cross-functional product teams.

You’ll be joining a small but nimble team of empowered engineers in a supportive environment that values experimentation, work-life balance and personal development. We’ve built a culture of knowledge sharing and feedback, so you’ll be involved in planning and prioritisation of work as well as peer reviews and pair programming.

We work in small and focused cross-functional teams, usually made up of a Product Manager, a Designer, and a mix of Frontend and Backend Engineers. QA and Infrastructure tend to come in at the points they’re needed or for specific projects. We scope out our project such that we’re able to deliver meaningful work but small enough to iterate and take on board feedback quickly. We encourage our engineers to get involved in different teams and projects based on their interests, skills and opportunities to learn. We’re also equally mindful about technical debt and make sure we dedicate time to addressing it.

At Geckoboard, we are seeking to solve a real problem and build a long-lasting product. As a result, we place a high value on a clean and maintainable codebase, and on practices that ensure we can continue to deliver quality software rapidly and iteratively.


Learning is also a big part of our engineering culture. Once every two weeks every team takes a “Lab Day”, when everyone is free to work on projects that interest them, learn new skills or contribute to open source. We encourage these projects and often they have led to improvements in the way we work or concepts that have then been prioritised, developed further and added to our Product.

Our Stack

Our main frontend application is a large React 16+ codebase and our tests are written with Jest. For communicating with our backend services, we use an Apollo client and query a GraphQL gateway written in Node.js that exposes a single schema but dispatches queries to a number of gRPC services on the backend.

While our backend services are mostly written in Go and run on AWS, the GraphQL gateway is owned by the frontend team, which puts them in the driving seat when it comes to defining the APIs for a new piece of functionality, and provides a single point of reference for both frontend and backend.

While adding features to the product, we’ve been building and maintaining an internal React component library with an emphasis on reusability and documentation. Our frontend team is looking to expand this library, with the potential to open source it in the future.

You should apply if…

  • What we’ve described sounds interesting

  • You’ve worked with Go before*

  • You’re interested in distributed systems

  • You’re collaborative; you empathise, listen and discuss

  • You actively seek out feedback in your work and to ensure you understand the problem you’re solving

  • You have experience collaborating on technical decisions in an open and creative environment

  • You understand the value of automated testing and a test-driven development approach

  • Right now we’re only considering mid to senior-level candidates, if you’re interested in joining the Geckoboard team but earlier in your career, head to www.geckoboard.com/careers and get in touch. We’ll be hiring at different levels throughout the year, so we’d love to hear from you and chat about future jobs!

Work your best

Right now, we work fully remote from around the globe. We’re big on work-life balance and flexible work. We have some core hours but it’s up to you to decide how you work around those. We consider 25 days of holiday a year to be a minimum, not a maximum, and have a flexible working policy so that if you need to step out for a school run, an appointment, or something else, it’s no problem. We don’t do “crunch time” and have a deep commitment to a clear separation of life and work.

Some of our team also have shorter working weeks and we’re more than happy to accommodate this or other arrangements when possible. Learn more about life at Geckoboard at www.geckoboard.com/careers.

Logistics

At this time, we’re only considering candidates who are (or will be) based in the United Kingdom or Western Europe (CET timezone).

Our hiring process

  1. 20-30 minute call with our Talent Partner
  2. 45-minute Zoom video call with the Hiring Manager
  3. Coding Challenge
  4. Meet the team via Zoom - about 2.5 hours

The whole process takes about 3 weeks end to end, but we’re flexible!

Job Description

Distributed Systems Engineer - to help us build a public, decentralised, blockchain-backed legal agreements network

London
£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…

Job Description

On the Nomad team, we develop tools for service deployment and batch job scheduling. Our customers place a high level of trust in us, relying on our tools to operate their own infrastructure and software effectively, and so we care deeply about reliability and performance.

This particular position is unique in that in addition to general Nomad backend engineering duties, this person will be the sole internal owner of the Nomad integration for Spark. We anticipate that work taking approximately 15-20% of this person’s time, and the rest of the time will be spent working on the overall Nomad roadmap along with the rest of the Nomad team. While we strive to hire at a variety of experience levels, this particular opening is not well-suited for recent graduates due to the level of independent ownership we expect for the integration for Spark. You will have the support of a Product and Engineering Manager in prioritizing and delivering work for the integration, but minimal fine-grained oversight from other Nomad Engineers. You will, however, benefit from direct interactions with users of the tool! This is an excellent technical leadership opportunity for someone with the capacity to operate well at this level of independence.

At HashiCorp, we value top-notch collaboration and communication skills, both among internal teams and in how we interact with our users. We take care to balance and be responsive to the needs of our open source community as well as our enterprise level customers.

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.

In your cover letter, please describe why you’re interested in working at HashiCorp, and what draws you to this role in particular! Since this is a unique role on the team, we require a cover letter for your application to be considered complete.

In this role, you can expect to:

  • Be the sole internal owner of the Nomad integration for Spark
  • Program in Golang for general Nomad work, learning from and contributing to a team committed to continually improving their skills
  • Program in Scala for integration with Spark work, as an independent Scala expert
  • Work on next-generation distributed systems for infrastructure management
  • Develop novel algorithms within the context of our open source tools
  • Build and architect systems for managing extremely large-scale global fleets of resources
  • Interface directly with internal teams, users and HashiCorp customers, and represent HashiCorp well to the large Nomad community
  • Own the full lifecycle of feature development from design through testing and release

You may be a good fit for our team if:

  • You are fluent in Scala or a similar language (Java skills with an understanding of functional programming concepts is a workable substitute)
  • You are interested in learning Golang if you aren’t already well-versed
  • You have past experience working with large batch data workloads, and can empathize with the problems that Spark solves for its users
  • You’re familiar with systems engineering, with networking and operating systems, and are comfortable with low-level programming
  • You have prior experience working in high performance or distributed systems; while we strive to hire at a variety of experience levels, this particular opening is not well-suited for recent graduates
  • You can knowledgeably discuss tradeoffs in distributed systems, such as those made for debugging and performance
  • You’re familiar with the pieces of typical modern infrastructure: secret storage, service discovery, etc
  • You’re able to reason about performance, security, and user interactions in complex systems

At HashiCorp, we are committed to hiring and cultivating a diverse team. If you are on the fence about whether you meet our requirements, please apply anyway!

Job Description

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. 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:

  • Build and architect distributed systems for service connectivity focusing on AWS ECS and then expanding further to other AWS offerings.
  • 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 and release
  • Program mostly in Golang, learning from and contributing to a team committed to continually improving their skills.
  • Coach and mentor other team members within HashiCorp’s engineering teams

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

  • 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.
  • Experience in a lower-level language like Go.
  • 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.
  • You have expertise with AWS Cloud runtimes like ECS, Fargate, Lambda.

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

About Venafi

Venafi is the undisputed heavyweight champion in Machine Identity Protection. Why? Because we created the category and are light years ahead of anyone that would consider competing! Gartner has recognized Venafi as number one in our space and as it turns out, one is NOT the loneliest number!

Venafi is the inventor of the technology that secures and protects keys and certificates. Venafi protects machine identity types by orchestrating cryptographic keys and digital certificates for SSL/TLS, IoT, mobile and SSH. Many of the largest organizations in the world use Venafi.

Billions of dollars have been spent protecting usernames and passwords and almost nothing protecting keys and certificates—organizations are just now realizing that protecting keys and certificates is as important as protecting usernames and passwords. The bad guys know this and are using stolen or forged keys and certificates to attack networks and steal data. In fact, Gartner says 50% of network attacks will use certificates.

Pivotal
London, United Kingdom

This job posting is no longer available

Job Description

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.
