Bud’s mission is simple. We’re here to create the world’s most compelling financial data products. The products we’re building are used by some of the world’s most prestigious institutions to help millions of their customers take control of their finances.
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). You’ll also be a core channel of representing the perspective of backend engineers in the team and helping the team to solve cross-engineering problems.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
We offer competitive salaries in line with industry benchmarks, set using extensive market data. We review salaries on an annual basis to make sure we continue to reward people well for their contributions at Bud.
Anyone joining Bud is granted stock options and the opportunity to invest in what we are building and developing, and to get to share in our future successes.
Wellbeing Allowance 🏋️♀️🧘♂️
We understand how important it is to look after your physical and mental health, and also that this looks different for everyone. To support this, Bud has a £50 monthly flexible wellbeing allowance which can be used towards your own wellness, whether that’s a gym membership, meal-box subscription, massages or something else!
Learning & Development 📚
As part of our commitment to developing our people, all employees at Bud have an annual £500 pot available to use towards their learning and development - think books, courses & events - the choice is yours.
We also have quarterly R&D days, giving you the opportunity to take a break for 2 days from live projects and work on something that’s inspired you, either independently or as part of a collaborative team.
Flexible Working ⏳
As a trusted member of the Bud, you’ll have the freedom and flexibility to manage your time and routine in a way that suits you, and your team, allowing you to deliver your best work. This role can be based in our London office, or fully remote/distributed in the UK.
Time Off 🏖️
We’re a team that likes to work hard, so we need to make sure we balance this with time to rest and relax. We offer 25 days holiday, plus the usual bank holidays, plus additional time off over the holiday season.
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.
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.
We are big advocates of sustainable transport and travel, and are members of a cycle to work scheme. We also have season ticket loans available.
We believe in helping our staff save for retirement, with Bud matching pension contributions up to 5%
Our mission is to help software teams get more done. Over the past decade there has been an explosion of specialized tooling in the enterprise. It’s putting the burden on each of us to jump between different apps and tabs to get our work done and at the end of the day we’re wasting valuable time. We believe there is a better way. Our ambition is bold: build the best platform for software teams to get their work done.
We’re just getting started and are looking to grow the team to help us accomplish our mission. We love what we do and are motivated by working on a product that we enjoy using ourselves. You would have an immediate impact as a builder and user influencing product. You would join the early team as a founding engineer and have full ownership working closely with our founders. Come join us!
Who we’re looking for We are looking for a full-time backend engineer. Our ideal candidate has 5+ years of experience building event driven micro-services or service oriented architectures and has built most facets, if not all, in a twelve-factor app. Preference is for real experience (2+ years) in our primary language of Golang, but other languages are considered when able to quickly pick up new technologies. Additional experience in integrating with 3rd party systems, event-driven architecture, databases, and cloud services (AWS, GCP, etc) are important.
You will directly influence how and what to build, and must be comfortable collaborating on the architecture, code, product, etc as we have a strong culture of devops as well as being technically curious, thoughtful and purposeful in what we build. We value deploying frequently with well-written, maintainable, instrumented and tested code to a kubernetes cluster.
**Responsibilities: ** * Develop new products and features in a small team * Collaboration with the team to solve technical problems and help shape the product direction * Provide technical input and knowledge to the planning, design, and requirements process for new products and features * Review other software engineers’ code for correctness, style, and completeness * Support your team’s production software by responding to an occasional alert or bug report * Write integration tests and work with our product team to ensure the operation and correctness of new features
Requirements: * 5+ years of backend engineering in a distributed systems * 2+ years in Golang or 5+ using several languages you were able to quickly pick up * Strong knowledge of a variety of database systems (Graph, relational etc.) * Experience working with 3rd party APIs and OAuth * Comfortable with strong dev ops culture * Strong communication skills in English and experience working as part of a remote team * Need to be located in timezones UTC-4 through UTC-8 (The Americas) * Excited to travel internationally for company retreats (twice a year) * Favorite Ted Lasso quote
Who Are We? We love what we do: designing and building great products. But our work isn’t the only thing that defines us. We’re not trying to create some semi-cult to get people to work here. We simply enjoy working together and building useful and beautiful software for our customers. We’re a venture-backed, pre-launch startup and are looking for someone who is excited about this stage of building a product and having a real impact on the company’s success.
You would join a group of repeat founders. We have founded and worked at startups that raised a bunch of money from top VCs. While that has its advantages (hire lots of amazing people, spend money on ads and cool perks…) it also puts a company on a very narrow success path. It’s very binary, since venture investors have a binary return profile (they succeed if their investments sell for billions). So we decided to do it a little differently this time. Where growth isn’t the only goal of a company. Where it’s balanced with the goal of being default-alive and capital-efficient which leaves doors open and avoids the trap of forced binary outcomes.
Organise is striving to build a team that reflects the diversity of our community and is truly inclusive. We welcome applications from under-represented groups, particularly people of colour, trans and non-binary people, new parents, and disabled people.
Organise is a fast-growing startup on a mission to give everyone the tools, network and confidence to improve their life at work. Our vision is for a world in which decent, fairly paid work is available and accessible to all, and where all of us are treated with dignity and respect at work.
More than 1 million people are already using Organise. We put power in people’s hands, building a progressive force for change inside companies.
The Organise staff team pride ourselves on nimble, focused workplace campaigns. That means our team is decisive, ambitious and happy to take risks. We’re characterised by our energy and enthusiasm; we’d rather aim high and see what happens, than play it safe. We’re passionate about putting Organise members first – we believe change at work happens when more people get involved.
We’re expanding our team and building out our platform to include a peer-to-peer network. We’re building a space for people to build power and support each other at work pseudonymously. A space for our core members to talk to each other in a space their boss can’t see. Small monthly subscriptions from members will verify their identity. The Organise network is paid for and protected by the workers. We currently operate in the UK, and are aiming to launch in the US by 2022.

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.

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.

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

We’re looking for an experienced Backend Go Software Engineer to join the Geckoboard team!
Every single one of us comes to work every day to do something we love. We get to tackle big problems, but in a way that recognises everyone’s need to work with dignity and purpose in a supportive and inclusive environment. It’s the most wonderful thing. In fact the fun part is trying to figure out all the different ways we can come up with to make data accessible and understandable for everyone. It really is amazing. The best part is that we work in an atmosphere of openness, trust and transparency, where everyone is empowered to learn and flourish. We’re actually doing really well. We have a product our customers love.
We’re really excited to be growing.
You’ll be joining a team of empowered engineers in a supportive environment that values experimentation, work-life balance and personal development. We’ve built a culture of knowledge sharing and feedback, so you’ll be involved in planning and prioritisation of work as well as peer reviews and pair programming.
We work in small and focused cross-functional teams, usually made up of a Product Manager, a Designer, and a mix of Frontend and Backend Engineers. QA and Infrastructure tend to come in at the points they’re needed or for specific projects. We scope out our project such that we’re able to deliver meaningful work but small enough to iterate and take on board feedback quickly. We encourage our engineers to get involved in different teams and projects based on their interests, skills and opportunities to learn. We’re also equally mindful about technical debt and make sure we dedicate time to addressing it.
At Geckoboard, we are seeking to solve a real problem and build a long-lasting product. As a result, we place a high value on a clean and maintainable codebase, and on practices that ensure we can continue to deliver quality software rapidly and iteratively.
Learning is also a big part of our engineering culture. Once every two weeks every team takes a “Lab Day”, when everyone is free to work on projects that interest them, learn new skills or contribute to open source. We encourage these projects and often they have led to improvements in the way we work or concepts that have then been prioritised, developed further and added to our Product.
Our main frontend application is a large React 16+ codebase and our tests are written with Jest. For communicating with our backend services, we use an Apollo client and query a GraphQL gateway written in Node.js that exposes a single schema but dispatches queries to a number of gRPC services on the backend.
While our backend services are mostly written in Go and run on AWS, the GraphQL gateway is owned by the frontend team, which puts them in the driving seat when it comes to defining the APIs for a new piece of functionality, and provides a single point of reference for both frontend and backend.
While adding features to the product, we’ve been building and maintaining an internal React component library with an emphasis on reusability and documentation. Our frontend team is looking to expand this library, with the potential to open source it in the future.

Right now we’re only considering mid to senior-level candidates, if you’re interested in joining the Geckoboard team but earlier in your career, head to www.geckoboard.com/careers and get in touch. We’ll be hiring at different levels throughout the year, so we’d love to hear from you and chat about future jobs!
At this time, we’re only considering candidates who are (or will be) based in the United Kingdom or Western Europe (CET timezone).
Right now, we work fully remote from around the globe. We’re big on work-life balance and flexible work. We have some core hours but it’s up to you to decide how you work around those. We consider 25 days of holiday a year to be a minimum, not a maximum, and have a flexible working policy so that if you need to step out for a school run, an appointment, or something else, it’s no problem. We don’t do “crunch time” and have a deep commitment to a clear separation of life and work.
Some of our team also have shorter working weeks and we’re more than happy to accommodate this or other arrangements when possible. Learn more about life at Geckoboard at www.geckoboard.com/careers.
The whole process takes about 3 weeks end to end, but we’re flexible!⎘ Copy Link ↗ Visit Link
Software Engineer (Go)
London NW9 5AB, UK
Utility Warehouse is an award winning multi-utility provider, our core offering is simple: all your utilities, one monthly bill. Our network of 45,000 partners add the human touch to our delivery, help us get the word out to our existing members and bring in new ones. We consistently win the Which? awards for our service and don’t believe “good enough” exists when it comes to customer satisfaction.
We’ve got the culture and focus of the earliest stage startups with the resources and strength of an extremely profitable and loved brand. Our eyes are on meteoric growth over the next few years. All the pieces to make it happen are here, we need you to help us put them together.
Our philosophy revolves around getting things done and we only hire people we can trust to do that. Bring your A game and you’ll always get ours. If you’re the type that can deliver you’ll be rewarded with small, fully autonomous teams that have real ownership of their products using a cutting edge stack in a best-idea-wins meritocracy. If that doesn’t quite cut it, we can throw in flexible and remote working (no, really) with top of market compensation.
As for the tech we use: the best tool is the right tool. Go and React are our bread and butter but nothing is stopping you from reaching for something else if it does it better. 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.
