Senior Go Backend Architect & DeveloperSponsored
Numus
Remote / Zug, Switzerland
$70,000 to $130,000 a year
June 2021
6 Applicants This Week

Job Description

Make a difference in an innovative team and build a world class big data research platform.

Numus is a global group of quantitative, engineering, and blockchain experts. We are contributing to shape the future of applied decentralized finance. We are a native global and decentralized team with an office presence in Zug, Switzerland. We combine extensive and diverse experience from the Crypto, Quant, Tech and Finance worlds but are bound by a shared passion for sharing ideas, learning from each other and solving new problems together.

Are you keen to work in a startup where your ideas, experience and willingness to find creative solutions – and not your title – makes a difference?

You will help design, create and improve our central automated trading platform, written mostly in Go. You will help to make our architecture even more secure, resilient and fault-tolerant while maintaining a modular, well-tested architecture with simple and elegant code, focussed on speed and latency. A good line of code for you is the one which wasn’t written. You see infrastructure as code and see the deployment and monitoring as an integral part of your work, DevOps-style. You rather try to use a AWS cloud service instead of running your own piece of infrastructure or code. Security is always on your mind, and you’re maybe always a little bit too paranoid. You will also help research developers to port their Code to Golang and maintain code quality. You love to explore new state-of-the-art tools and discuss them with your team. Contributing to Open Source projects (e.g. modules to connect to exchanges) is an important part of your work as well. You’re super detail and quality oriented and love to work in a team where most problems haven’t been solved so far – so we highly value creativity to find solutions.

Requirements

  • Deep understanding of modern cloud-based backend architectures and technologies
  • Golang coding experience
  • Database technologies, especially latency-focussed NoSQL (AWS DynamoDB, Redis, ElasticSearch, AWS S3)
  • Distributed Systems (gRPC, Redis)
  • DevOps deployment on AWS (Docker containers, AWS CloudFormation/CDK, AWS Opsworks, AWS ECS/Fargate)
  • Maintaining a CD/CI Pipeline (AWS CodePipeline/Build/Deploy, Github Actions, TravisCI)
  • Monitoring tools (AWS X-Ray, AWS CloudWatch, Datadog, Honeybadger, New Relic)
  • Security Tools and Concepts (especially on AWS: VPC, IAM Roles, Security Groups)
  • Excellent problem-solving skills and high attention to details
  • Highly self-organized, self-learner, strongly quality oriented
  • Fluent English speaker

Beneficial Requirements

  • Analysis and math skills
  • Experience with Python, JavaScript/TypeScript (AWS Lambda) and Ruby (on Rails)
  • Experience with Serverless technologies (AWS Lambda)
  • Experience with big data management and analysis toolchains like Databricks, Apache Spark, Kinesis
  • Extended know-how about security, hardening and attack vectors
  • Interest in crypto and/or financial markets How to apply

What we offer

If you are eager to join a knowledge driven group of brilliant minds that value results above anything and do not engage in any political internal discussions, then you should join Numus.

As everyone of us is constantly learning and we are far from definitive answers yet, we embrace a global, diverse and collaboration-oriented team culture. We value open, smart and sharp minds, no matter their background. They are our greatest asset.

If you are curious, scientifically minded, entrepreneurial, passionate, a little bit quirky and fun: we would like to get to know you and become a part of our journey. Develop your skills together with us in a humble, remote, lean and agile environment.

We operate in a non-hierarchical structure on a self-management basis where skill counts instead of titles. Take initiative, initiate change and take responsible action. You also know when to ask for help.

You’ll be working with the latest cutting edge technology to solve real world problems. Creativity is a must in our company. We’re organized as a full remote-first company, so Everybody can choose freely to work remotely or from our offices or a mix of both, we will be able to adjust to your work-life balance.

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.

  • Are passionate about making high quality digital products that give our users power to improve their lives at work

  • Can collaborate effectively, inspire other team members, and start from a position of empathy

  • Understand the business and social mission of Organise, and work with the broader team to prioritise ideas and features that will deliver for our users

  • Are comfortable working in an early-stage environment, and the uncertainty (fun!) that change can bring. We get the right balance between thoroughly-tested code, and getting things done

We’re looking to scale our engineering team to build out our network product, on an infrastructure that’s fit to scale with us.

We have a great starting point: hundreds of thousands of active users that love the Organise product, a straightforward deployment process, and a big focus on great user experience. We have plans to ensure scalability while we grow as a team - pairing as much as we can, an agile approach to product development and dedicated time to evaluate and improve our processes.

We build most of our software in Ruby (mostly Rails) and React, use Postgres hosted on AWS RDS for our databases, and use Heroku to host most of our web applications.

As Lead Engineer you will:

  • Play a leading role shaping the culture and developer experience of the engineering team - building a team that has a deep commitment to delivering products that empower our users and improve working life for everyone

  • Work closely with our CTO and CEO to set priorities and direction for our product and infrastructure. You’ll play a scrum master role for development of our network product - inspiring and setting clear direction for team members

  • Get to know (and work on) the entire product and infrastructure - you’ll spend time with our campaign coaches and Organise users to see our product in action. You’ll get into the detail of how our tech empowers members to improve their lives at work, and you’ll feed ideas from the whole team into our tech strategy

  • Work directly with our backend engineers to improve our infrastructure, so that we’re ready to scale globally for millions of users

  • Support, coach and develop engineers to thrive in their roles through regular 121s, feedback and team retrospectives

💪 You should apply if

  • What we’re building at Organise excites you!

  • You have experience managing and developing software engineers and building collaborative, caring, and high performing teams

  • You have experience with Ruby on Rails and React

  • You are curious and passionate about solving problems and building products that empower millions of users

  • You enjoy thinking about data and architecture, and can demonstrate an understanding of good database design

  • You have experience leading product development in a scrum/agile environment

  • You have experience setting priorities at a high level - bringing together long-term infrastructure goals and product design

  • You have experience working with legacy codebases

  • You are able to communicate effectively and work well with a diverse range of non-technical colleagues

  • You are open-minded and willing to learn new approaches to your role and our culture

🥳 You’ll benefit from:

  • Equity in the business

  • Wellbeing benefit and access to mental health support with Spill

  • Remote working budget

  • Learning & development budget + progression support

  • Involved in other aspects of the business, from strategy, management and training, to shaping team culture

  • Being part of something that’s both commercially successful and socially important

💥 Some highlights from 2021

  • Using Organise, Amazon drivers landed national media coverage, including an exclusive BBC Newsnight investigation, exposing their working conditions & calling on Amazon CEO to lower their parcel targets back to a safe level. They’ve also met directly with MPs and got the Amazon CEO grilled in front of Parliament. 40% of drivers have had their targets lowered to a safer level now as a result - a huge win for their collective action.

  • Over 100,000 members pressured the government to abandon their plans to scrap the laws protecting paid holidays and rest breaks (working time directive) - including sending tens of thousands of messages sent directly to the Business Secretary in the 24 hours leading up to the U-turn. Civil servants tell us (off the record) that the department were ‘astonished’ by the level of public backlash to the plans.

  • Dan*, a Census worker, started a campaign when he noticed Census temporary workers were being asked to travel to attend their first-day induction without being offered to have their travel expenses covered. In response to thousands of people joining the campaign, ONS has agreed to make sure all temporary workers are reimbursed for their travel expenses. With this and the update to the Census Jobs FAQs page clarifying the expenses policy, Census workers can start their jobs without being out of pocket.

✨ Logistics

  • 🧑‍💻 Location: Can be remote (within +/- 5 hours of GMT) or based in our London Kings Cross office (a dog-friendly office 🐶 with a lot of plants 🌱) and will we provide you with all the tools you need!

  • 💰 Competitive salary: Our salary formula adjusts to your cost of living and experience. For this role, the range is: £72,000 - £90,000 GBP in the UK // $101,000 - $127,000 in the US.

  • 😍 Benefits: 38 days holiday per year (including Bank Holidays), Flexible working hours, Childcare benefits/vouchers, forward thinking parental leave policy, menstrual and menopause policy, discounted gym membership, time off in lieu policy, team lunches and activities.

Lightmeter Logo
Golang Engineer
Lightmeter
Berlin, Germany
$40,000 to $50,000 a year
December 2020
9 Applicants This Week

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.

Our tech stack (repos: https://gitlab.com/lightmeter)

  • Golang
  • SQLite
  • VueJS
  • A little Python
  • Some big data

Recommended skills

  • Golang
  • Git with large and distributed teams
  • Linux (server and desktop) and tools such as make, SSH and shell scripting
  • Docker and related technologies
  • TDD and SOLID

Ideal skills

  • Development of high performance, distributed systems
  • Continuous integration / delivery
  • Some Javascript
  • Some Python
  • Email related technologies, such as SMTP and Postfix
  • Standard crypto libraries and principles
  • VueJs
  • Interest in learning (and teaching!); Rust is welcome

Work Remotely

  • No

COVID-19 Precautions

  • Remote interview process
  • Virtual meetings

Cuvva Logo
Backend Engineer
Cuvva
London, United Kingdom
£75,000 to £90,000 a year
July 2020
7 Applicants This Week

Job Description

About Cuvva

Cuvva is a new kind of insurance that’s fast, friendly, and flexible.

We get it - insurance doesn’t sound exciting. But this isn’t insurance as you know it. It’s insurance the way it should be. We’re putting the customer first and building products that solve real human needs.

We were the first company in the UK to sell hourly insurance, and the first to sell insurance through an app. We’ve sold over 1 million policies. We’ve written over 260,000 lines of code. And we’re a fast-growing team of over 70 talented people.

Why work for Cuvva?

We’re shaping the future of insurance. So we don’t cut corners. We try to do the right thing, even when that makes life more difficult for us.

We’ll speak up when we have an idea - but we know when to let go and get behind something else.

And we’re comfortable giving and receiving honest feedback, and trying new ways of doing things. It’s the Cuvva way.

We’re building a diverse team with different backgrounds, outlooks and experiences. So we give everyone a fair chance of getting a role at Cuvva. Even if you secretly don’t love insurance. (Don’t worry - we didn’t either.)

And if you need any adjustments or support when you’re applying to Cuvva, no worries. Just let us know.

As well as a competitive salary (£75-90k, dependent on experience) and equity based remuneration, benefits of working at Cuvva include:

Equality

We’re committed to ensuring that everyone has a fair chance to join Cuvva, whatever your background. We will always treat your application in a fair and equal manner.

  • Professional development budget
  • Brand new MacBook
  • Health and wellbeing budget
  • Enhanced parental leave
  • Workplace pension scheme
  • 33 days of holiday a year (including public holidays )
  • Mates rates on your insurance
  • Work-from-home Wednesdays (Currently Work-from-home everyday!)
  • Referral bonus when you bring your friends to join the Cuvva team
  • Office library full of great books
  • Fresh fruit and breakfast club every day
  • Season ticket loans
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • A day off to volunteer
  • One-to-one sessions with our Sanctus coach, giving you a safe space to talk about your mental health
  • Coffee machine in the office
  • Fully stocked beer and soft drink fridge - we do team drinks every Thursday
  • Regular team lunches
  • Monthly team outings (so far we’ve done things like karaoke, go-karting, bowling and comedy night)

About the role

We’re looking for a software engineer who has held senior positions in engineering teams within high-growth, high-scale startups, who will operate with a high level of autonomy, ensuring impeccable reliability and availability. You care deeply about building rock-solid infrastructure for the long term, with a track record of delivering solutions which support your team and your product.

You will develop Cuvva’s core platform, abstracting the key processes required to sell insurance, delivering solutions that allow the team to develop strong and stable products, without having to spend time ensuring they get the basics right.

Aside from developing core platform services, we expect you will also become heavily involved with ops and security activities, contributing towards the maintenance of our servers, AWS account, etc.

“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.

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!

If that doesn’t quite cut it, we can throw in flexible and remote working (no, really) with top of market compensation.

We deploy to Kubernetes across both AWS and GCP with some help from Terraform. We run a mature event sourced microservice architecture using Kafka, NATS and GRPC. As much as is possible we code in the open on GitHub. If it can be open- sourced, it shall. If we can submit a PR instead of building our own, we will. Getting your hands dirty from the top to the bottom of the stack isn’t a promise to be broken, it’s a requirement. If you’re only good at parts of it that’s okay, we’ll quickly make you good at all of it.

Backend Go Developer
Geckoboard
London, United Kingdom
£40,000 to £61,000 a year
August 2018
1 Applicants This Week
This job posting is no longer available

Job Description

At Geckoboard we help businesses use their data to align their teams on the metrics that matter most to them. We’ve been busy reimagining the way our customers get their data in Geckoboard and have a lot of interesting and creative work to do to shape their experiences. Right now, we’re looking for curious problem solvers to help us on this journey.

What are we working on?

We’ve completely rebuilt how data gets into Geckoboard from third-party APIs, thanks to a query planner that’s written entirely in Go. Our query planner takes in the metrics that a customer would like to track, and produces a plan for how to fetch and transform those metrics from a third-party JSON API such as Zendesk, Intercom, Google Analytics, etc.

We’re now working on extending this platform and building various microservices for tracking our customers’ rate limits and scheduling metric refreshes in the most efficient way possible. We’re also creating a caching engine that ensures we don’t waste precious API calls on data that we know hasn’t changed since last time.

The team are also in the middle of splitting up our existing REST APIs into gRPC microservices with segregated data stores. Which is a huge opportunity for us to rethink some of the fundamental assumptions about Geckoboard’s data model and how we can re-architect our systems for greater reliability and to enable us to ship with more confidence.

We don’t expect you’ll have worked on all of these kinds of projects before, but if they take your fancy and you’re excited about working on distributed systems and database technologies at scale, we’d love to hear from you.

As one of our Backend Go Developers:

  • You’ll be writing in Golang on a day-to-day basis.
  • You will help architect, design, and build Geckoboard’s data pipeline.
  • You’ll maintain and optimise our existing infrastructure and services.
  • You will get involved in the prioritising and evaluation of our work.
  • You’ll pair with team members and get involved in code reviews.

Joining us in our London office, you’ll be working alongside a growing team of empowered engineers, with a focus on building a high quality product our customers love, work life balance and personal development.

Keen to hear a bit more? Carlos, one of our Backend Go Developers has shared a little about what it’s like working with the team, what an average day looks like and more in an interview on our Blog: https://medium.com/geckoboard-under-the-hood/working-at-geckoboard-as-a-go-developer-e73855bd0dd8

The Geckoboard Story

Thousands of businesses use Geckoboard to build live TV Dashboards that focus teams on what matters. We take the complexity out of connecting data and make it simple for anyone to understand key metrics at a glance. We have pre-built integrations with 60+ tools including Google Analytics, Salesforce, Zendesk, Intercom and Google Sheets and our customers include Marketo, Slack, and Skyscanner.

In our mission to make data useful, our growing team of 40+ is headquartered in London and span across eight time zones - from Mumbai to London, San Francisco to Hawaii and more. We’re always looking for people with diverse backgrounds who bring unique perspectives and skills to join our team and in return we constantly strive to ensure that we offer the most encouraging, inclusive, and efficient environment possible.

We don’t just pay lip service to work-life balance, we actively and strongly encourage it. Flexible working hours and the ability to regularly work from home lets you work in a way that fits you and your family. We see our contractual obligation to offer 25 days of paid holiday as a minimum for everyone in the organisation, not a limit.

We actively contribute to professional development, courses, conferences, and books. Our Engineering & Product team also run fortnightly “Innovation Wednesdays”, where everyone has complete freedom to work on anything that interests them, from contributing to open source, to learning a new skill, or improving our internal tools and processes.

And, don’t take our word for it, see what the team say about the projects they work on: https://medium.com/geckoboard-under-the-hood and their experience of working with us on Glassdoor: https://www.glassdoor.co.uk/Reviews/Geckoboard-Reviews-E878996.htm.

We’re all here to build something great. You’ll be joining a growing 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.

Learning is also a big part of our engineering culture. About once every fortnight you’re able to take a whole day — an Innovation Day — to work on projects that interest you, learn new skills or contribute to open source… whatever it may be! 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.

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.

Our teams

**Product
**Our product teams each own a different part of the product, building features that improve Geckoboard for our customers. Some of our recent work has ranged from a new send-to-Slack feature, SSO and in the team you’ll be joining initially, we’ve been building a brand new internal framework for importing, storing, and analysing data from third-party APIs we integrate with. We know that investing in our Data Platform is the best way we can deliver flexible, high-quality integrations quickly and easily. The new framework takes care of managing and scheduling imports, responding to webhooks, receiving analytics queries, migrating data from one version to the next and allows us to build internal gRPC services using a common protobuf interface upon it.

**Platform
**We believe that we can only be successful as an Engineering team if we are constantly and systematically investing in our tooling, our common systems, and our developer experience, this is where our Platform team comes in. Our recent work has ranged from rapid response work to improving test and trace coverage, migrating existing services to Go modules and support for other teams. We’re also working on enabling older RESTful services to be migrated onto gRPC with a GraphQL API gateway in front.

You should apply if:

  • What we’ve described sounds interesting

  • You’re interested in distributed systems

  • You’ve worked with Go before*

  • You want to build a product that delights its users and genuinely serves their needs

  • 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

We know that there are great candidates who may not exactly fit into what we’ve described above, or who have important skills we haven’t thought of. If that’s you or you’re not sure, please apply, we’d love to hear from you.

  • Right now we’re only considering mid-to-senior level candidates, if you’re still developing your Go skillset and interested in joining the Geckoboard team, head to www.geckoboard.com/careers and get in touch, we’d love to hear from you and chat about future jobs!

Work where you work best:

While most of our team are normally based in our leafy East London office, a lot of us work remotely at least a day or two during the week. This means we’ve always been intentional about making sure our ways-of-working are remote-friendly so we can support that flexibility for everyone. We also have fully remote team members, though the expectation is that you’re comfortable with a visit to the London office about once a quarter (except during pandemics).

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, our office remains closed and everyone on the team is working from home presently. We’re likely to continue working from home over the Winter. We keep a close eye on the government guidance, regularly update the team, and plan to open our office only when it’s safe to do so again.

Some of our team have shorter working weeks and we’re more than happy to try to accommodate this or another arrangement whenever possible. Just let us know what works best for you or that you’d like to chat about it in your application.

Logistics:

At this time, we’re only considering candidates who are (or will be) based in the United Kingdom (regardless of whether you’re onsite when out offices reopen or fully remote). Unfortunately, we’re unable to provide sponsorship for this role.

Our hiring process:

  • 20-30 minute call with a Talent Partner
  • 45 minute video call with the Hiring Manager
  • Take home exercise
  • Virtual onsite with the team - about 2.5 hours

The whole process takes about 2-3 weeks end to end, but we’re flexible!

  • Terraform, Vault, Packer
  • Gitlab CI
  • Tempo (OpenTracing)
  • Go, ReactJS, Python
  • Docker, Ansible
  • Prometheus, Grafana

The goal of our DevOps team is to create a self-service system for everyone to get their job done. This means designing intuitive and well-documented infrastructure as code that allows others to get their jobs done efficiently, securely, and correctly instead of doing it all for them. At Techcyte, we believe the primary developers are the best suited to dissect production problems, and the DevOps team provides top-notch tools and methods to help them do that. As such, our DevOps members are still developers and will participate in product development, but they should be evangelists for thinking about code in the context of where and how it runs.

Candidates must meet the following requirements:

  • Have a BS in Computer Science or a related degree, or related experience
  • Be authorized to work in the United States
  • 4+ years experience building on AWS or other cloud infrastructure
  • Excellent coding skills (main languages in the company are Go, ReactJS, and Python)
  • Ability to work on remote Linux systems
  • Current with modern dev tools and methodologies such as agile development, git, bug trackers, and team chats.
  • Be able to work remotely
  • Ability to optimize queuing and complex systems to improve speed or costs
  • Knowledge around best security practices
  • Experience with SQL databases

Candidates will be asked to code in the interview process.

About the Company

Work from Home

While we do have offices available for use, our workforce spends the majority of their time working from the comfort of their home. Every team member has a daily standup meeting to touch base with their team and a monthly all hands meeting for the whole company to get updates. Additional meetings are created as needed, and the majority are impromptu.

Benefits

We offer competitive salaries, healthcare benefits, paid time off, work from home, a bonus plan, and equity.

Hard Problems

Techcyte develops products using computer vision and deep learning to automate microscopy for laboratory testing for healthcare, veterinary services, and environmental testing. We need to analyze the equivalent of a blu-ray movie worth of images in the cloud in only a few minutes while staying reliable and accurate. Major problems include transferring, processing, and storing terabytes of data, creating queuing systems that balance turnaround times with costs, and building a pipeline around machine learning models that meet the accuracy requirements of human healthcare.

Extremely Talented People

We have a wide range of talent spanning a variety of industries and positions. We have built a culture of fast paced and agile development in the face of a healthcare system that has been rigid. We are building massive scale systems to implement bleeding edge research. Come interview with us and you will see top notch engineering talent that can compete with any organization on the planet.

Improve the World

Our mission is to improve healthcare and laboratory testing throughout the world. We improve the work environment for our users, improve the accuracy of tests, and lower costs and turnaround times for the healthcare system. We push new innovation in technology, workflow, and regulations to make the healthcare system the best it can be. We have already improved accuracy in laboratory testing that have prevented misdiagnoses, and we are striving to do more.

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.

🍻 Beers & Cheers! Get to know your colleagues over drinks while we celebrate our achievements every Friday.

As a developer at GrowSumo on the Core Product team, you will work alongside other skilled developers, product leads, front-end developers, and success engineers to craft high-performance and highly operable web services that scale to support our rapidly growing user base.

You will empower GrowSumo’s mission of building the sales force of the future, building trust with our clients, partners, and colleagues as a team leader and mentor to junior developers.

What we do:

The GrowSumo Core team builds the foundational product that connects some of the fastest growing companies in the world to a global marketplace of distributors. Our clients send us over 25 million transaction and integration requests every year so that we can properly attribute and reward their partners for driving key business metrics.

  • We believe that teammates have each others backs - we build for operability and stand behind the services we write.

  • We build backend services and applications mostly in Python and golang, running in Docker containers.

  • Supporting each others success is one of our highest priorities.

  • We believe in equipping our team with the best tools for the job.

  • We use our creativity and imagination to handle high data volumes and velocity.

  • We deploy our code multiple times per day.

  • We are passionate about growth of the team, as well as the individual.

  • Were proud of the code we write, but were not dogmatic about methodologies or techniques. We believe building the “right thing” is more important than building things “right”, as long as we build it better each time we touch it.

Who we are looking for:

  • You have a strong learning reflex and you see challenges as a chance to grow.

  • You want to see customers getting value out of the software you wrote to solve their problems.

  • You are happy to help other developers learn from you, and you hope they challenge you to learn new things as well.

  • You’re proud of the code you write, but you’re also pragmatic about design vs iteration: you know when it is time to refactor, and when it’s time to ship.

  • You’re focused, driven and can get challenging projects across the finish line but you know that sometimes it’s okay for deep work to take its time.

  • You have experience operating services in production and take software quality practices personally.

  • You write meaningful tests and understand the value of observability and operability and what they mean in different contexts.

Requirements

  • You have 2+ years building web applications on a team
  • An ability to quickly learn new languages, or an existing familiarity with Python, Vue.js, Angular1.x, Golang, or similar languages.
  • Write readable, robust and reusable code
  • Work well on a growing team, communicating clearly and often.
  • You have an interest in constantly learning how the team can build better, more scalable, and more sustainable solutions.

We want to get to know you, so please share any of your side projects, open source contributions, community involvement or volunteer experience. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!

FullStack Engineer
FuzzBuzz
San Francisco, USA
$110,000 to $140,000 a year
May 2020

Job Description

About Fuzzbuzz

We’re Fuzzbuzz and we’re building a fuzzing as a service platform that integrates into CI systems and the modern software testing workflow. Fuzzing is a type of automated testing that generates and runs thousands of inputs per second on your code to try and find bugs and vulnerabilities. It uses code coverage and other signals from your code to guide the tests it generates and runs. You can read more here.

Last year, we raised a $2.7M seed round from some of the best tech investors & founders, namely Y Combinator, Fuel Capital, Solomon Hykes (Docker founder), Flo Leibert (Mesosphere founder), Spencer Kimball (CockroachDB founder), Michael Stoppelman (Yelp ex-CTO).

About the Team

We’re currently a team of 5 people and prefer staying small - allowing us to iterate faster and get very comfortable working with each other (the 3 founders have been roommates since first year university). That means you’ll be 16% of the team - all of the work you do will be extremely critical and immediately impact users. We pride ourselves in being a very humble, but capable team - the 2 founding engineers each have 20+ years of engineering experience.

Since we are really small, we prefer having everyone working at the same location. We’re at 541 Jefferson Ave in Redwood City, CA - 10 mins from the Caltrain (everyone’s currently WFH because of COVID-19. We will resume working from the office when it is safe).

Why Fuzzbuzz?

1. Define the DevOps and security standards of tomorrow

Fuzzing is seeing more widespread usage than ever before, but there is still work to be done before it sees mass adoption. We’re uniquely positioned to bring fuzzing to the developer community and make software testing more effective than ever before.

2. Product-first culture with an emphasis on engineering

Working on a technical product means working with very technical people. We embrace technical challenges and take them head-on. We use tools/frameworks because they get the job done, not because they’re the current flavor of the month.

3. Early stage, funded startup

By joining Fuzzbuzz at this critical early stage, as one of our first team members, you’ll be shaping not only our product, but our company & engineering culture as well. We’re well funded, and pay in the top 10% of companies in SF at our stage.

What You’ll Be Doing

  • Design, architect and build the Fuzzbuzz platform (frontend & API)
  • Work with our designer to build a beautiful platform with a focus on simplicity
  • Work with fuzzing team to integrate fuzzing tooling into the platform
  • Work with founders to define product roadmap
  • Define internal engineering standards, tooling and processes
  • Work and iterate closely with users

What We’re Looking For

  • 2+ years experience as a full stack software engineer
  • Solid understanding of Typescript
  • Experience building complex SPAs in Angular or React (using TS)
  • Experience with or willingness to learn Go
  • Experience designing and building APIs
  • Experience working with AWS
  • Familiar with Linux
  • Strong fundamentals in distributed systems design and development
  • Obsession with users and providing real value to customers rather than working with “cool tech”
  • Ability to navigate & take ownership of complex problems from design through to final implementation

Benefits

  • Full health, dental & vision insurance
  • Caltrain & Parking covered
  • Unlimited, guilt-free PTO
  • Flexible hours
  • Ergonomic workstation (standing desk, Herman Miller chairs, custom monitor/laptop set up)

  • One quarter in, you will be effectively an active member of your squad and your teammates will fully count on you; you will have built meaningful relationships within the company and be comfortable discussing ideas, inside and outside of your squad’s scope; ideally, you will have presented a topic you are fond of in one of our internal knowledge sharing sessions and/or demoed some work the team did during our weekly all-hands meeting

Typical day activities

  • Team sessions (with your fellow engineers and PO) to check data and brainstorm ways to improve several services performance and design scalable solutions
  • Solve open issues that affect component infrastructure reliability
  • Propose and discuss with fellow engineers efficient solutions for components and architectural design.

  • You have at least 6 years experience in back-end development using a modern set up and tooling
  • You have a great understanding of APIs, databases, data structures, queues, and all things back-end, with a strong passion for automation

  • You have a sense of pragmatism, constantly finding the right balance between achieving technical excellence and delivering value to the end users
  • You are flexible, curious, and data-guided in helping us decide what to work on next
  • You engage with your team and all the engineering group actively, sharing knowledge and best practices in order to improve with them every day

  • A competitive compensation package and Stock Appreciation Rights.
  • Flexible time off (take as many holidays as you need) and a chance to work remotely - we measure results, not time spent at keyboard.
  • Annual company retreat in some great location - check out our Mallorca trip in 2019
  • Regular trips to Amsterdam’s HQ for remotes (depending on team priorities, 1-4 times a year)

Software Engineer
Pivotal
London, United Kingdom
£60,000 to £75,000 a year
July 2019
2 Applicants This Week
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.

Monzo Logo
Backend Engineer - Tech Ops
Monzo
London United Kingdom / Remote (UK)
£69,000 to £116,000 a year
November 2020
5 Applicants This Week

Job Description

We’re looking for a Backend Engineer to join our TechOps squad at Monzo.

Our TechOps squad is primarily responsible for making sure everyone at Monzo has all of the tools they need to do a great job. That means managing all of our devices (predominantly running Mac and Chrome OS), managing our G-Suite domains, providing 1:1 support to Monzonauts across the business, and much much more.

A big contributor to the success TechOps have had to date is the way we’ve embedded engineers in the squad, meaning we’ve been able to automate away a lot of the manual work traditionally associated with a TechOps squad.

This has allowed us to move quickly, achieve an incredible ratio of TechOps people to total employees, and reap the benefits of being able to hire people all across the world without friction.

You’ll help us solve problems such as:

  • How do we continue to offer outstanding service to all of our Monzonauts without exponentially increasing the number of people working in TechOps? What can we build to automate the work of 20 people?
  • What parts of traditional IT can we rethink with code to supercharge TechOps at Monzo?
  • How do we build a seamless, delightful experience for Monzonauts with best-in-class homegrown code and third party services?

The role

You’ll be a backend engineer in the squad. Some of the projects you’ll be involved in might include:

  • Integrating MDM (Mobile Device Management) and making this a function that integrates with everything else at Monzo, from inventory to access levels on your AWS account.
  • Building a seamless way to replicate groups, roles and other logical frameworks across first and third party applications to make authorisation for a Monzonaut a seamless experience.
  • Building on a system to track any and every Monzo-owned asset, from network switches to access passes and everything in between.
  • So much more - you’ll have the opportunity to influence our roadmap and build on the foundations already in place to continue scaling TechOps with Monzo

You’ll work closely with TechOps generalists and engineers from around the business to tackle some of the challenges mentioned above, working at the intersection between Security, People and TechOps to make sure we’re moving forwards together.

Security, scalability and how we continue to support the services you’re building should always be front of mind.

You’ll also have the opportunity to coach and mentor others in the squad on engineering best practices. We want to empower everyone in the squad to automate away the low-value manual work, and you’ll be key to unlocking this potential alongside other engineers in the squad.

At Monzo we’re aiming to build the best current account in the world. We are always keen to hear from capable, creative engineers who want to help us accomplish that goal 🚀

Our backend engineers have a variety of different backgrounds

We have several non-graduates; only some of us studied Computer Science; one of the team has a degree in Marketing; some of us have worked in huge companies; some have only ever worked in startups; others are former consultants. As long as you enjoy learning new things, we’d love to talk to you. We do not ask for formal qualifications or degree requirements for any of our engineering roles.

We are actively creating an equitable environment for all of our engineers to thrive

Diversity and inclusion are a priority for us and we are making sure we have lots of support for all of our people to grow at Monzo. We provide a sponsorship framework in Engineering for women and people of colour; all of our leaders are trained on privilege awareness and we are creating partnerships with organisations dedicated to supporting underrepresented groups. You can read more in our 2020 Diversity and Inclusion report.

We encourage an open and transparent working environment

You can get involved in any aspect of the business you are interested in and, following Stripe’s example, all emails in the company are visible in an email archive. We contribute to open source software as much as possible. Our blog is a good place to learn even more about what we do!

Monzo works in project-based sprints in small, interdisciplinary teams

We have around 150 engineers out of roughly 1,400 people in total - and we have big ambitions. There are many interesting challenges ahead, and we’re happy for people to move between teams or to specialise, whatever you prefer. As an engineer here you’d be able to work directly with anyone across the company, and we run regular knowledge-sharing sessions so you’ll learn heaps about everything from how banks work to effective communication.

At Monzo you will get to work with a lot of exciting new technology.

We rely heavily on the following tools and technologies:

  • Go to write our application code (there’s an excellent interactive Go tutorial here)
  • Cassandra for most persistent data storage
  • Kafka for our asynchronous message queue
  • Envoy Proxy for RPC
  • Kubernetes and Docker to schedule and run our services (Oliver, our VP Architecture, gave a great talk at KubeCon on how we use these technologies)
  • AWS for most of our infrastructure
  • React for internal web dashboards
  • We also have two physical datacenter sites with actual cables to connect to various third parties

Our product squads are truly cross-functional.

This role is all about collaborating across disciplines to test hypotheses and make a difference to customers. As a product backend engineer you’ll work in a squad alongside product managers, marketers, user researchers, designers, mobile engineers, web engineers, data analysts, business analysts, writers and more!

You should apply if

  • You’re someone who doesn’t wait to be told what to do. You spot problems and proactively fix them
  • You’re an engineer who’s happy writing (or would like to learn to write) views in React and backend services in Go
  • You’re someone who can think big, but start small. The squad have lots of ideas and you’ll need to help shape these and show what is possible - then bring that to life
  • You have ideas about how we can think ‘big picture’ and can scale TechOps going forward
  • You’re comfortable working with an interrupt-driven squad. A lot of what the squad does is reactive, and you’ll need to support that at times. TechOps spin a lot of plates, and it’s important that you can see the bigger picture and prioritise your time to work on the most important problems

Logistics

Salary is around £69,000 - £116,000 plus stock options and other benefits.

We can help you relocate to London & we can sponsor visas.

This role can be based in our London office, but we’re open to distributed working (with ad hoc meetings in London once COVID is over).

We have payroll set up in three countries: the UK, Ireland, and France. Right now, we can only hire people who work from those countries and we’ll keep this updated with new ones as we expand and are able to hire from more places 🌎

We offer flexible working hours and trust you to work enough hours to do your job well, at times that suit you and your team.

Diversity and inclusion is a priority for us – if we want to solve problems for people around the world, our team has to represent our customers. So we need to attract the best talent and create an environment that supports and includes them. You can read more about diversity and inclusion on our blog.

If you prefer to work part-time, we’ll make this happen whenever we can - whether this is to help you meet other commitments or strike a great work-life balance.

Our interview process is normally a phone interview, a coding task and call to discuss it, and 2-3 hours of onsite interviews that can be conducted via hangouts as well. We promise not to ask you any brain teasers or trick questions. We might design a system together on a whiteboard, the same way we often work together, but we won’t make you write code on one.

Equal Opportunity Statement


At Monzo, embracing diversity in all of its forms and fostering an inclusive environment for all people to do the best work of their lives with us. This is integral to our mission of making money work for everyone.

We’re an equal opportunity employer. All applicants will be considered for employment without attention to ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, family or parental status, national origin, veteran, neurodiversity status or disability status.
