Senior Software Engineer with Luno
London, United Kingdom£80k - £100k
1 year ago

Job Description

Luno is a leading global cryptocurrency company operating across more than 40 countries and with offices in London, Singapore and Cape Town. We’re a profitable, growing company with over 2 million customers, and are backed by some of the top tech investors in the world.

Our products and services make it safe and easy for people and businesses to buy, store and learn about cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. Our vision is to upgrade the world to a better financial system.

To the moon! 🚀

Your Mission

We have multiple openings for senior software engineers in our brand new London office. These are in a range of teams including fraud, platform, payments, shield, onboarding, and crypto-security. With over 40 engineers based in our Cape Town office, you’ll be joining a group of highly motivated experienced developers who you’ll work collaboratively with across our currency exchange, fraud, payments and compliance pods.

As a small company operating on a global scale, you’ll immediately see how your contributions directly impact both our internal users and client experience. We make decisions based on facts, not fiction. Many of the problems we’re solving result in genuinely trail blazing solutions which can’t be found on StackOverflow; so we’re looking for an experienced engineer that thrives on working in a complex domain.

We use Go, microservices architecture (gRPC) and AWS, but if you come from a Java, Python or other relevant language we’ll help you get up to speed with our comprehensive engineering onboarding program.

How we work

We succeed as a team. Our teams are split into pods, each of which focuses on a specific aspect of our product. Any engineer is able to deploy to production, and we deploy multiple times each day. Your pod will include a product owner, back end engineers, Android and iOS developers, and web developers who each bring a unique perspective to the problem you’re all solving.

A typical day

  • Join the pod’s daily standup to share progress and remove blockers
  • Collaborate with other engineers on the design of a new payment integration to launch to a new market
  • Write clean, well-tested code that directly affects users, the company and the Bitcoin ecosystem
  • Grab lunch with the company (we provide lunch Monday - Thursday)
  • Coach a team member by giving feedback on their pull-request

What’s in it for you

This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about cryptocurrencies, blockchain, emerging and developed markets, and scaling a global business. We provide great benefits and the autonomy to conceive and execute your own projects. Best of all you get to work with a diverse team of talented, ambitious and friendly people on something that will truly revolutionise the world.

As a “Newnaut” we’ll fly you to Cape Town to meet the wider team, and go through our comprehensive onboarding program. We expect you to have a passion for blockchain and cryptocurrencies but we understand that this is a new industry so we’ll help you learn about how the blockchain works and understand all aspects of our business.

What you’ll need

Building a new financial system for the world requires a special breed of people working together with unusual skill, focus and determination. “Moontality” represents the ten core principles that underpin everything we do, setting us apart from the rest.

As an experienced lead-level or senior engineer, you’ll have:

  • A solid foundation in computer science in areas such as algorithms, data structures, and software design
  • Extensive programming experience in an object-oriented language. We use Go but we welcome applicants who have strong experience in other languages like Java, Scala or C++, etc.
  • Proven experience of building, shipping and supporting a product
  • An interest in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin

Don’t be put off if you don’t tick all of the boxes – they’re a guide based on what we’d love to see but we appreciate that great software engineers have diverse backgrounds.

Backend Engineer with Cuvva
London, United Kingdom£60K – £75K
1 year ago

Job Description

Core platform

When we refer to the “core platform”, we mean the services which underpin the processes of all insurance activities on our system.

For example, we expect one of these to be the “policy service”, which might be responsible for ensuring compliant issuance of policies, coordinating mid-term adjustments, preventing overlapping policies (double insurance), etc.

Other services could include user authentication, risk & pricing calculation, handling the process of modifying user data in-line with any mid-term adjustment requirements.

All services we consider to be part of the core platform will have strict requirements around stability, data integrity and transactional safety. All functionality must fail safely and explicitly, for example using 2-phase commit processes or other similar techniques. This will also require a reasonable level of testing to validate this safety.

Requirements

The perfect addition to our team will have:

  • a fiercely independent and self-driven approach
  • 5+ years’ commercial experience working on back-end systems at high-scale startups
  • at least a year of commercial experience working with Go
  • strong knowledge of security practices, ideally with a slightly grey-hat background
  • a working knowledge of the entire web stack - from how DNS lookups are transmitted, to how browsers prioritize CSS rules
  • awareness of compliance and financial regulation

We are a small team so it is important that the successful candidate is not only technically highly competent, but also a great cultural fit!


Perks & Benefits

As well as a competitive salary (£60-75k, dependent on experience) and equity based remuneration, benefits of working at Cuvva include working in our new offices in Shoreditch and of course significant savings on your car insurance.

Backend Software Engineer with HousingAnywhere
Rotterdam, Netherlands€45k - €65k

Job Description

Our Vision 🌏🏡

To help people with housing, anywhere.

Our Mission 💻✨

Building a safe, efficient and global rental marketplace for anyone looking for or renting out a place.

Our Core Values 💛

We Care. We Perform. We Evolve.

Your Impact 💥

As we have reached the scaleup phase at HousingAnywhere, our rapid growth has brought on new challenges. We are rethinking the platform architecture to meet imminent growth needs. You will have the opportunities to bring in your ideas in the context of microservices, stream processing, API, security and data integrity.

At platform we are shaping the vision for the future architecture of HousingAnywhere. You will help other teams to build new features on top of our architecture, and make sure that concerns like reliability, security, privacy and performances are met.

We are pragmatic developers, and often we need to think out of the box to solve tricky technical challenges. Technology hypes inspire our work and give us ideas, but we realize that the context in which we build our solutions is what matters most. You will help us consider the challenges we face when adopting new technologies or techniques.

You will help your colleagues and your leaders to solve problems and move faster, as well as they will do with you.

Our mission as the platform team

As a Software Engineer for the Platform Team, you will be joining the team responsible for the backend logic of HousingAnywhere’s marketplace, and for standardizing the way our partners integrate with our platform.

Our team is here to provide HousingAnywhere with a scalable composable architecture that allows the organization to scale the business and teams on top of it.

We achieve our goals by:

  • developing the technical vision and standards on the platform that accommodate the needs of the housing rental market for the next 10 years
  • developing the standards for the exchange of information between systems in the accommodation rental market.

Let’s work together on the following

  • We are currently refactoring the monolith in context boundaries using Domain Driven Design techniques. Our goal is to come to an architecture that will allow us to break the monolith in microservices and break dependencies with the database.
  • We are working on bootstrapping our journey to let partners integrate with our platform. We are defining and implementing the architecture that can integrate seamlessly the variegated technologies the industry uses.
  • We are rethinking our approach to CI, and simplifying our suites of tests.
  • We already extracted frontend as a service from the backend monolith, but the code still leaves in one repository. We want to gain independence by extracting backend code from frontend code and have separate deployment pipelines.
  • We are working closely with the operations team to move our services to kubernetes. We are currently sending a small percentage of traffic to the cluster and are facing some performance issues. We are investigating possible next moves to fully work on the cluster.
  • We are creating an internal RFC to plan how to move towards an event driven architecture by introducing Kafka. We are researching impacts, costs and value that we get by getting into such a path.

And our stack?

  • Go
  • Postgres
  • Redis
  • NSQ
  • Docker
  • Kubernetes
  • Github
  • Google Cloud Platform
  • GRPC/Protobuf

Who you are

  • A product-oriented person: you love developing products that help people and you’re driven by the impact you can make.
  • A problem solver: you structure your thoughts and you propose your ideas towards solving a problem or creating an opportunity.
  • An advocate of clean,simple and pragmatic solutions. You always have intention, adaptability and scalability in mind.
  • A real team player: You respect the work of all your colleagues no matter their seniority level. You also understand that making mistakes is part of the job and that the important thing is to learn from these mistakes. You are always keen to help others, but you are also not afraid of asking for help yourself.
  • A great communicator. We don’t expect you to be a master story teller(although we do love stories), but we expect you to communicate your expectations clearly with all your stakeholders.
  • A tech junkie! You are interested in new technologies and you constantly seek to improve personally, whether that is at work or in your spare time.

What we offer:

🚀Get ready to make a real impact and hit the ground running with early responsibilities. You have the opportunity to take full ownership of your work and dare to do things differently. Here, all ideas matter.

👩🏻👨🏾👦🏼👽 Work with a crazy unconventional team! Think 90 people from 30 different nationalities. It’s like being on a round-the-world trip while you’re in the office.

📈 Trainings, workshops, conferences, books. It’s up to you.

📚 Budget for Dutch or English classes to help you kick off your stay in the Netherlands, and help you immerse into the Dutch culture.

🌇 Work in the heart of Rotterdam in an office with an amazing view! If you’re looking for a city that is always packed with new things to discover, amazing architecture, a strong international community, this is the perfect place for you!

👕We don’t care about what you wear. You’re welcome to wear a 3-piece tuxedo or even a dragon onesie, we won’t judge you. Maybe a little.
