This position is a great opportunity for experienced software engineers with a background in the likes of Go, Python, PHP or Node.js looking to apply their existing skillset and learn and use Go in a production environment.

  • We’re entirely hosted on AWS and make extensive use of many of their services (over 30 at last count!)
  • 15+ containerised microservices running in ECS (we’re open to exploring moving to Kubernetes in the future if appropriate). Our services talk protocol buffers over HTTP and are discovered with Consul.
  • Dozens of event driven serverless functions running on Lambda, some running as APIs behind API Gateway and others as Step Functions
  • Dockerised batch compute workflows
  • NoSQL databases (predominantly DynamoDB and ElasticSearch)

You will gain a unique perspective of a high growth business and have an opportunity to shape the landscape of our backend APIs, data pipelines and strategies, infrastructure automation and many more engineering goals.
