You’ll be leading the development of some of Bud’s most critical internal services that are utilised by product teams across Bud as well as owning a number of core platform exposed services that are non-product specific for domains such as authentication and traffic management. Every request that hits the Bud Platform will end up touching at least one of the services you’re responsible for. You’ll be contributing to Bud-wide architecture as well as actively developing in Bud’s Platform & Security [Product] Team where you’ll be the driving software engineering force in the team (which is mostly composed of SRE/Platform Engineers).

  • Proven experience with Go; and a great foundation with another programming language (e.g. Java, C, C++, Ruby, PHP or Python)
  • You think about resilience, reliability and scalability on-par with other functional requirements and are experienced in balancing and implementing strategies against requirements in these areas
  • Awesome analytical and communication skills, with the ability to communicate complex ideas to non-experts with eloquence and confidence
  • Comfortable working with SQL and NoSQL databases
  • Automated testing of systems and applications is second nature to you
  • You understand and advocate the value of observability and are comfortable implementing and utilising metrics, tracing and logging
  • Able to both work independently as well as collaboratively within a team
  • Experience with defining, monitoring and alerting against SLOs

Taking it to the next level

Engineering at Bud

The software engineering team are tasked with solving highly technical problems to enable solutions that tangibly benefit the lives of millions of people. From how to scale our solutions to tens of millions of users in the most effective manner of integrating hundreds of third-party businesses. Data is key to our business and we need passionate developers to help capture it, store it, transform it, research and most importantly secure it.

What is it like to work for Bud?

We could play buzzword bingo but one of our core values is 'Authentic' and the best way to demonstrate this is by sharing our employee engagement dashboard. This provides a weekly engagement and NPS score giving you a true reflection of life at Bud. All data collected is realtime & anonymised so we have no control over what you see.

The dashboard is interactive so check it out here and have a look at what the numbers mean, https://bit.ly/2MhjAZT

A bit more about us

We’re a diverse group of people. With backgrounds ranging from data science to music production, more than 80% of our team come from outside the world of finance – providing us with a unique perspective as we help consumers feel more in control of their lives. For us, an interest in people comes first; finance follows.

More about what we're doing

The apps and infrastructure we’re building are designed to place the power of personal data back into the hands of normal people. Picture this: a world where your bank knew you were paying too much for your gas bill and could switch you to a more suitable provider, or understood your savings targets and could automatically find you a better deal. That’s what we’re working towards.

We believe that diversity will make us better.

Bud’s mission is to make the money part of people’s lives simple. To get there, we need a workforce that is diverse as the people we create our products for. Which means we need people who have different backgrounds and experiences, who are diverse in age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, and ways of thinking. We truly believe that these differences will make us grow as a company and a team. We strive to create a workplace and culture where our people are empowered, supported, given equal opportunities and can bring their authentic selves to work.

Equipment 💻

We want to make sure everyone is set up to work effectively and comfortably - so you’ll get to choose your own kit, including any additional equipment you might need to work from home.

Social 💃🕺

We’re big on keeping Bud a social place to work, with big quarterly events (we throw an epic summer party), regular team socials & monthly company breakfasts. This year we’ve stepped up our virtual social scene with quiz nights, virtual cocktail making, book clubs, and online workouts.

Job Description

About Setu

India’s economic infrastructure needs a complete overhaul. Today our digital economy rides on rickety monolithic systems built in the mid-90s. It takes months to do a simple bank integration and launch a fintech product. This inefficiency cannot continue.

If our economy has to grow, we need killer API infrastructure for financial services that rivals the likes of Stripe, and AWS.

At Setu, we are fixing this for good, by abstracting away the complexity of working with legacy financial infrastructure and replacing it with a developer platform that offers clean, high-performance API bundles to embed finance into any application.

So that developers can do what they do best, build amazing products that improve people’s lives.

Importance of the role

This is a mission-critical role. We are a small, diverse, agile and high-performance, engineering team. We’re looking for versatile developers who will:

  2. Build new products and tools to crunch integration times and time to market

  3. Improve through peer-learning and transmit them to the Setu dev ecosystem

  • Implementation: Should be able to structure and write code like prose for others to read, design and adhere to common principles and patterns that make everyone better at their jobs. Should have the ability to contribute according to timelines and type of projects - from working POCs to stable production code and the ability to work with a large breadth of knowledge.

  • Orchestration and integration: Interact with the larger engineering team for integrating your work into the ecosystem, help others in building over the base that you provide, help in orchestrating your work into CI/CD, testing, QA and automation pipelines.

  • Mentorship: We all love to learn and grow as engineers and human beings and we believe in synchronous growth as a team fueled by each and every individual's personal abilities, specializations, and interests. To enable this you'll be required to mentor others by sharing your expertise in various forms and be subject to be mentored by others and thus maintain a continuous learning culture.

  • Ownership: End-to-end ownership of services and specialized components required for various projects - starting from prototypal stage to production-hardened. These may include anything from document parsing to solving problems using deep learning.

  • Documentation: Create advanced technical content including articles, samples, whitepapers, and training.

Tech stack

Backend: Python3, Golang, Flask, OpenAPI

Frontend: Typescript, React

Benefits

Why Setu?

  • We care deeply about your development. So we work hard to provide you with:

  • Exposure to other verticals such as product, business, developer experience

  • A fully stocked library and unlimited book budget

  • Tickets to conferences and industry events

  • Weekly learning sessions on Friday where we invite both team members and external experts to teach you something new

Golang Engineer
Lightmeter
Berlin, Germany
$40,000 to $50,000 a year
December 2020
1 Applicants This Week
This job posting is no longer available

Job Description

Please note: this position is full time and in Berlin (you need to already be in Berlin too). We don't use agencies.

Most messaging networks are created to serve their creators. Email is designed to serve humankind. For over 50 years inspired technicians have architected email to provide the greatest good to the greatest number. Their openness and design principles made email the world's #1 communication channel and identity provider with 4.2 billion users (2x Facebook). Email is a critical foundation stone of the Web.

Lightmeter is reinventing email infrastructure to overcome threats from centralised tech oligharchs like Microsoft and Google. An epic platform war is behind fought behind the scenes to wrestle control over digital comms and incorporate it into closed service platforms, where the customer is a product to be sold to the highest bidder.

We are 3 years of research and 1 year of development in to building Lightmeter Control Center - the all-in-one mailops management system repeatedly featured in Heise and ZDnet. It's fully Open Source (on GitLab) -- feel free to check the unit and user acceptance test code coverage : ) . Our engineering team has a background in embedded and fintech, with a focus on performance and feedback.

A mix of public and private funding fuels our work, and we've been recognised by the European Commission as part of 'Next Generation Internet'. We have hundreds of active users, a few of whom we interview each week, including banks, public universities, Internet Service Providers, and marketing agencies.

Our mission is to strengthen the foundations of digital society by making mailtech easy and convenient.

That’s a brief intro to what you’ll be working on. But first, you need to know if you’ll even like working with us. Let’s talk about life at Lightmeter and then we’ll go into detail about what we’re looking for.

Who you’ll be working with

One luxuary of being an early-stage team is that you get to work directly with everyone. That said, you'll be reporting to Sam, our CEO. He gets easily excited about engineering patterns and workflows, and likes bright colours and house music with vocals.

You'd work along-side Lead Developer Leandro, who calls himself a Software Craftsman, and who others call a philosopher. Leandro has deeply held unfashionable beliefs like "all code should be fast and light", and cares more about design patterns than what language he's coding in. He love the outdoors and pines for the mountains.

Suela is our Product Manager and x-ray seer of quality and value. She has a nack of turning our telescopes around, pointing out better perspectives, opportunities, and efficiencies. She's an Open Source fangirl, community organiser of the OpenLabs Hackerspace, and secretly learning Python so she can make bots to replace herself. Just kidding!

How You’ll Work at Lightmeter

We work hard to make working here a great experience, and have a team of truly exceptional people — the kind you’ll be excited to work with. You'll get to design and create new components and services, working on features like those on our roadmap (https://lightmeter.io/roadmap).

Here’s how we operate

No Crazy Hours
You'll very rarely work more than 40 hours per week, unless you really want to. Ocassionally things can heat up, but noones going to force you to work more than is comfortable. When you do work overtime you balance it out with time off afterwards. We work hard and smart, planning carefully, but we’re in this for the long haul: sustainability trumps anything short term.

Face time and alone time
Most of us have worked fully remote before and miss the benefits of face time, so we like to work together a lot of the time. However focused time alone, in cafes or home-office is nice too, so we aim for a good mix. So long as you can reach the people you need, when you need them, and vice versa, your preferences for office vs remote work shouldn't be an issue.

Take Vacation
A small team means it's easy to coordinate time off to relax and recharge. Notice you'll be away a week in advance is usually enough.

Up Your Game
We’re serious about helping you improve your craft. Everyone wins when you get better and your job, and enjoy the process. Think conferences, online courses and subscriptions, dedicated time away from work to learn something new.

Compensation and Legal
We can't currently offer you a salary to compete with Amazon or Microsoft. What we can offer you is the same salary that we are paying ourselves: €50,000 / year.

We’re an early-stage startup, funded, pre-revenue, and growing. We are owned and managed by our Founders. Making sustainable, profitable products with a committment to openness is hard; we're demonstrating how it's done. If you care deeply about digital freedom, empowerment, and collaboration, you'll probably fit right in!

What we're looking for

Lightmeter has ambitious goals and our team is growing to meet them. You're the Software Engineer we're looking for if you're collaborative, mission-motivated, creative, disciplined, and productive. (So far, so good?)

You love solving complex problems — both internally and for your users — and know what it means to build a mature, evolving product. You are more focused on the outcome than on the output of your work, and prefer to deliver something useful sooner, rather than something perfect later. You welcome feedback, and are curious about users' challenges and how to address them. You demand a lot from your colleagues and expect the same in return, taking personal pride in collective achievement.

Requirements (these are real, actual requirements)

  • You must live in Berlin most of the time, so we can meet up and work together sometimes
  • You must have at least five years working in the software industry, of which at least four are as a software engineer.
  • You must have experience working in cross-functional teams. And we really mean that cross-functional part — in other words working directly with designers, quality assurance, product managers, or other related roles.
