What makes Ably special?**
Ably helps power next generation digital experiences. Ones which are live rather than static, where data is in motion rather than at rest. Things like live chat, realtime location tracking, live document collaboration, gaming and eLearning. We've gained the trust of some the largest businesses in the world to integrate us into their stacks, businesses such as HubSpot, OfferUp, Tennis Australia and CA Technologies. We also work with a diverse range of tech startups globally powering features such as an air traffic control system for drones. Working at Ably means you are working on a cutting-edge product that is helping global brands shape the future.
Join us now and you’ll be early in at a business going places, you’ll learn a lot, you’ll work with the founding team, and you’ll have fun.
What we want in return – in brief We want someone smart, ambitious, curious and motivated. Someone is prepared to do their best and work their arse off to do great work and become outstanding at what they do.
You'll be working with a deeply technical engineering team who collectively bring a wealth of experience and broad technology skills. The calibre of the code we produce is what excites us each day and motivates us each. If you enjoy solving hard distributed system problems that are mostly platform agnostic and theoretical in nature, then you'll love working at Ably. Our team is made up of a strong remote contingent, however our base is in London and growing. We are strong believers in face-to-face communication where possible. Whilst this is a remote working role, being able to practically travel to London occasionally is highly preferable and working on a similar time zone is a must.
Day to day you can expect to be working on:
The "core" realtime platform which is largely Node.js, and some shared services in Go. You may also be required to work on the various services and routing layers of the platform which are built in Go and Elixir (we would happy if you are comfortable in either Go or Elixir, both would be a big win). As an aside, we use Ruby for all infrastructure automation and orchestration and occasionally write lower-level native code where necessary (such as native modules for Node). We're always revisiting the technologies we use and are always open to using new technologies where suitable.
Collaborating with the team to design, discuss and implement new features and services.
Diagnosing and fixing bugs in our platform using distributed tracing techniques.
Adding suitable test coverage to new features as well as existing functionality, conducting load tests using our frameworks, and generally helping to address platform stability and regression prevention.
Be responsible for the complete lifecycle of your features and code i.e. pull request, reviews, testing, deploy to staging and sandbox environments, then into production environments with ownership of any issues that arise. We are strong believers in all developers being involved in the system operations as well.
Contributing to open source projects that we support or use in our products. All of our client libraries are open source as well and may require your support at times.
Helping customers solve problems they are experiencing that may help us find bugs in the platform.
Support the wider team in regards to documentation and customer support.

Jetstack is a Venafi company.
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.
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
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.
