Senior Software Engineer (Go) with LevelSponsored
Remote
$110,000 to $115,000 a year
2 weeks ago

Job Description

About Us

Level (https://level.io) is an exciting startup that will soon be entering the remote monitoring and management space. We’re fans of the “Lean Startup” methodology and after many customer conversations, we’re almost ready to launch our MVP. We feel like this space is stale with older products that offer a poor user experience. Our product features a simple interface and exciting technology that none of our competitors are utilizing.

We’re backed by the founders of a very successful Managed Service Provider (MSP). They have extensive experience in the IT space and have proven invaluable in helping us validate that we are building the correct thing.

Salary

$110,000 - $115,000

Level Senior Engineer Role

Level is building a modern remote management and monitoring solution. We are a small team that is well funded and close to launching to our early access customers. We are searching for a strong, multi-talented individual contributor who is comfortable with systems-level programming and networking who can contribute to our agent, written in Go.

Must-Haves

  • Deep knowledge of a systems language like C, Rust, or Go.
  • Not afraid to dig into an RFC. Low-level internals excites you, rather than scare you away.
  • Experience with system-level APIs in Windows (win32), macOS, and/or Linux.
  • Excellent written communicator.
  • Willing to learn and work with Go.

Nice-to-Haves

  • Significant WebRTC experience. You have built something with Pion.
  • C/Objective-C experience, sometimes using system APIs means writing bindings to use in Go.
  • Video encoding experience. You have worked with H264 and understand the spec.
  • Building cross-platform libraries, our Go agent compiles to Windows, Darwin, and Linux on a variety of architectures.

Things you might work on

  • Building a cross-platform interface to query the active processes on an OS and transmit them over a WebRTC Data Channel to our web app.
  • Working with libav to create a custom h264 encoder to reduce the latency and bandwidth of streaming a device.
  • Creating a system tray GUI for the agent.
  • Securely allowing scripts to be executed against a machine and piping the results over a WebSocket connection.

Why you might want to work with us

  • We are a small, fully remote engineering team, and there are no layers of bureaucracy. You can have a huge impact here.
  • We are very flexible with working hours, we don’t expect you to work a consistent block of time, we trust you to get your work done.
  • We are on the cusp of launching our MVP and starting to grow.
  • We will offer profit sharing so our small team will receive dividends on profits the company makes.

More About Us

We are a startup headquartered in beautiful downtown Asheville, NC. We are a small, close-knit team working to upend the RMM market with a new product. Our CEO and leadership team have done extensive product research and are focusing on traction channels to grow while the product is being built. Though we are a startup, our investors have given us a multi-year runway.

We have already made substantial progress towards an MVP. We need someone to come in and help finish our Go agent who is an experienced self-starter that can make an impact on our product development. We aren’t interested in someone that just wants to work down a list of pre-defined tasks. Our ideal candidate loves working on products and will help shape the direction of ours. We hope to launch within the next couple of months and want someone to come on this journey with us.

We really like the Basecamp philosophy and try to make sure that it doesn’t have to be crazy at work. We won’t ask that you work weekends, or late into the night. We don’t mind if you need to leave for an appointment in the middle of the day. We understand that software development doesn’t happen for 8 hours straight and don’t worry about counting time in the chair. We trust that given a fair timeline with a scope that you help us determine you will be able to deliver features. We are concerned with the end goal, not micromanaging you on the way there.

Pay

We’re looking for someone great, but are an early-stage startup. We are offering a rate of $110-$115k plus (eventually) profit sharing. We know you could make more elsewhere, but this is an opportunity to jump onto a startup that has the chance to grow quickly in revenue where our profit sharing will ensure you are compensated for the value you bring.

Backend Engineer with Monzo
London, United Kingdom
£40,000 to £100,000 a year
2 years ago

Job Description

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 🚀

Please note: we get lots of successful applications for Backend Engineer, so there could be a delay in scheduling interviews from the initial stage right up until the final interviews. If you’re invited to interview and you have any immediate time pressures, please let us know, as we’ll always do our best to speed things up for you 😊

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 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 regularly run hackathons in which people build things on our third party API and we contribute to open source software as much as possible. We’ve also made ourproduct roadmap public and give sneak peeks of features in our community forum. 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 800 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 Head of Engineering, 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

You should apply if:

  • the work we’re doing sounds exciting!

  • you want to be involved in building a product that you (andeveryone you know) use every day

  • you’re keen to learn more about new technologies and the arcane inner workings of the financial industry

  • you’re comfortable working in a team that deals with ambiguity

  • you’re interested in distributed systems and writing resilient software

  • you have some experience with strongly-typed languages (Go,Java, C, Scala etc.).

At the moment, the following teams are looking for backend engineers:

Product The product backend team work primarily on creating backend services and APIs for our in-app user-facing features. They work closely with our mobile engineers and designers to create a delightful user experience, and to drive growth and retention. Projects that Product backend engineers have worked on recently include Summary (giving people insight into their finances to empower them to spend sensibly) and the Current Account Switch Service (all the hard work to allow users to move to Monzo quickly and easily).

Lending The Lending team works on making borrowing money simple, fair and transparent. They’ve already shipped and scaled overdrafts to hundreds of thousands of Monzo customers and they’ve made it easy to take out a loan without the unfair fees or confusing pricing that you find elsewhere. They work on everything from the way borrowing works in the app, right down to how they move and account for money that our customers borrow. One of the most interesting problems they face is deciding how much to lend and to whom. The team believes that they can make access to credit fairer and more transparent.

Logistics

We can help you relocate to London, we can sponsor visas, and we’re open to remote working (as long as you can spend around 20% of your time in London).

We offer competitive salaries based on skills and experience, which could be anywhere between £40,000 - £100,000 per year.

We care deeply about inclusive working practices and diverse teams. If you’d prefer to work part-time or as a job-share, we’ll facilitate this wherever we can - whether to help you meet other commitments or to help you strike a great work-life balance.

We’re continually hiring for Backend Engineers! Our interview process typically consists of an initial phone screen, a take-home code task, and a half-day on-site interview. We promise not to ask you any brain teasers or trick questions, and we won’t make you code on a whiteboard

Software Engineer (Go) with Utility Warehouse
Colindale, London, United Kingdom / Remote
£45,000 to £90,000 a year
2 years ago

Job Description

Company

Utility Warehouse is a FTSE 250 organisation which has established itself as the most trusted supplier of utility products in the UK. Utility Warehouse is the only genuine multi-utility operator in the market providing gas, electricity, landline, broadband, mobile & insurance products and services to households and businesses nationwide, all on one single monthly bill. With over 600,000 customers the organisation has grown through a philosophy of offering savings, simplicity and service. Customers enjoy a number of advantages, including membership of a discount club, and a unique CashBack reward system on everyday shopping. The organisation does not advertise, preferring instead to invest in customer services and to keep prices low. Utility Warehouse has predominantly grown through a network of over 45,000 partners who operate as lead generators and advocates for the organisation. These partners come from a range of personal and professional backgrounds, and actively take it upon themselves to promote and recommend Utility Warehouse to friends, families and their professional networks. Trust between these partners and the organisation is crucial, and ensures that customer service and satisfaction are consistently prioritised.

Background

Utility Warehouse is an energetic and entrepreneurial challenger in a market traditionally composed of monolithic, slow competitors. In the utilities market, it is difficult to compete on the quality of the product and therefore establishing a strong value proposition is crucial to avoid a race to the bottom on price. Utility Warehouse has established itself as the most trusted brand in its sector, winning accolades from industry publications and consumer advisory guides. Customer service is at the core of their business ethos and another way they differentiate from their competitors; 93% of customers would recommend the organisation to a friend. By establishing a best-in-class experience for the consumer, Utility Warehouse commands a strong market position in an age where technology makes it increasingly easy to access information on consumers’ experiences. The organisation is well-placed to capture an increasingly large portion of the £52bn market that they operate in. By staying true to their values of trust and service, Utility Warehouse is the only major provider in the market to be both growing and profitable.

Utility Warehouse has an adaptive, agile, fast-paced culture which has enabled it to grow rapidly. The management team has expanded over the last two years as part of the growth strategy with significant hires in technology, legal, marketing, and finance. These hires and the rebuilding of the platform will enable the company to grow to two million customers over the medium-term. Utility Warehouse operates at high-transactional scale, processing large volumes of data. This presents new opportunities to understand customer behaviours better and to create an improved customer experience as a result.

Opportunity

With ambitious product plans for the future, it is important to have a solid foundation to enable growth for the business, allow innovation and achieve rapid time to market. To realise this, the underlying platforms and systems must be designed to be flexible, modular and resilient.

You will join our Insurance team tasked with designing and building the insurance platform from the ground up to enable new opportunities to our insurance product and services.

The platform will be a set of simple and intelligent APIs built using microservices and event driven architectures. Internally, the decision and rating engines will leverage integration with numerous 3rd party systems to provide quotes, offer addons, allow policy uptake and operational management.

Key responsibilities

  • Design, architect and build multi-channel platform solutions
  • Contribute ideas and influence business wide solution architecture
  • Build robust and scalable end-to-end software solutions
  • Participate in the entire development life cycle, from requirements to delivery
  • Influence other team members in a cross functional product team
  • Build integrations with legacy systems with a focus on eventually moving away from them

Key requirements

  • Good engineering skill with an eye for both modelling and code architecture
  • Knowledge of when and how to apply test driven approaches
  • Understanding of microservice/service oriented and distributed architectures
  • Understanding of event source and/or event driven architectures
  • Belief in agile principles and a devops culture and be familiar working in a agile enviornment
  • Experience with a modern programming language (preferably golang)
  • Experience with containers and container orchestration technology will be beneficial but not essential

Interview Process

Hangout with engineering manager, pairing interview and whiteboard (non-algorithmic)

Founding Engineer with Metomic
London, United Kingdom
£60,000 to £80,000 a year
2 years ago

Job Description

Hey!

Do you like solving problems? Building things? Breaking things? Experimenting with things? (because we do)

Come on, the answer’s yes already …

We’d like you onboard!

We’re funded, we’re early, we’re moving super fast, and we’re about to solve a MASSIVE problem. At Metomic, we’re building the “privacy by design” infrastructure of the internet. Technologies plug together like Lego - it’s about time that our preferences, consent and sharing permissions do the same.

It’s a greenfield opportunity. We have:

  • A vision to make data ethics globally important. We want to make data-misuse a thing of the past. We want to give every product and service in the world a permissions screen.
  • A wide-open green field of freshly baked services
  • A young and pliable tech stack and infrastructure
  • Energy and drive in abundance

We love awesome engineering, and awesome engineers:

  • We’re playing with Docker, Typescript/NodeJS, Go, a smidge of Python, React, rapid prototyping, metrics-metrics-metrics and tight feedback loops
  • We love autonomy and ownership, and believe in empowering our team
  • We like polyglots! If you take like a duck to water with new languages, we don’t care if you haven’t used much of ours

You’re curious, creative and smart

And modest, too. Here are some of the other things that you have:

  • A curious mind. A love for the question “why”
  • Flexibility. Your peers say you can turn your hand to pretty much anything you set your mind to
  • Good communication skills. We’re a small team!
  • The ability to code (no surprises here). You are comfortable in two or more languages
  • The ability to build fast
  • A working knowledge of devops. You can spin up a cloud hosted prototype in a jiffy…
  • … or have sufficient google skills to make it look like you already could

…and you have a wide set of interests:

Perhaps in your free time you’ve dabbled with front-end. Or painting. Or robots. Or a markov-chain Trump-tweet generator. In which case can you take it down please? It’s currently running the United States.

Hey you said full-stack … but “dabbled” with front-end?

Yes. We don’t need you to be a front-end person. We’re looking for a great engineer in general, not a specialism - and this is the closest tag we could decide upon. So if you’ve ever felt “But I do lots of things! How do I present myself as capable doer of multitudinous things?” then you’re perfect. “So do I need to build the front-end” Nope!

Unless that’s your burning passion, in which case, hey, we’ll hook you up.

What else? I want more. Open-source? Dev talks? Community?

Ok, we’re going to be hitting the noise channels pretty hard to make a bit of a racket. We’re engineers, and a lot of other engineers are getting on board with this idea of doing shared data “right”.

So for us that means: meetups, blogging, tech talks, open-sourcing, spec-defining and platform designing. There will be lots of pizza and snacks because we’re supposed to like pizza and snacks and Richard’s pretty health conscious so there’ll be some kind of vegetable presence too.

And if you like the sound of having a voice in the community, we will absolutely make that happen.

Whoa whoa wait, the salary?

Of course. We believe in hiring good people, and paying them well. This is a big role, it comes with a big salary. We’re also offering equity, because we want everyone to be in the same boat.

Ok I’m sold. Let’s chat.

Great! Our CTO Ben gets a small electric shock for every application; so even if you’re not interested you should try it out to keep him on his feet.

Software Engineer (Go) with Utility Warehouse

£40,000 to £90,000 a year

Job Description

Software Engineer (Go)

Technology

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.

Squads currently hiring Software Engineers:

The Partner Experience squad is responsible for providing digital tools that help partners be more successful. The primary goal of the partner experience team is to increase the size of UW’s customer base by creating a well informed and highly motivated network. Using gamification techniques, the team delivers innovate tools covering and supporting the entire partner lifecycle from recruitment over on-boarding to enduring self-service business management to provoke continuous activity throughout the network.

The Energy squad is responsible for providing the systems that allow UW to integrate with the energy industry and function as a large Energy supplier; the frontend systems that allow our operational staff to manage the UW energy supply base and the systems to provide information and accurate energy billing to our customers. The team’s primary goals are to improve the operational efficiency of the operations and customer services teams by providing innovative and simple to use software solutions; ensure business continuity as a supplier by providing robust industry integration and regulatory compliant systems and build the platforms to allow UW to become an innovator for customer offerings in the Energy supply market.

The Insurance squad is responsible for the delivery of enhanced P&L through the successful growth of our new insurance business unit. It’s anticipated this 6th core service might also help improve customer retention. The team is responsible for the delivery of a platform for the insurance suite of services and products which will grow over time. The team owns the lifecycles of the insurance policies and manages any industry interactions, API integrations that are required to orchestrate this. This team is also responsible for enhancing customer data from customers answers during quotes process.

Senior Software Engineer with Luno
London, United Kingdom
£80,000 to £100,000 a year

Job Description

Luno is a leading global cryptocurrency company operating across more than 40 countries and with offices in London, Singapore and Cape Town. We’re a profitable, growing company with over 2 million customers, and are backed by some of the top tech investors in the world.

Our products and services make it safe and easy for people and businesses to buy, store and learn about cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. Our vision is to upgrade the world to a better financial system.

To the moon! 🚀

Your Mission

We have multiple openings for senior software engineers in our brand new London office. These are in a range of teams including fraud, platform, payments, shield, onboarding, and crypto-security. With over 40 engineers based in our Cape Town office, you’ll be joining a group of highly motivated experienced developers who you’ll work collaboratively with across our currency exchange, fraud, payments and compliance pods.

As a small company operating on a global scale, you’ll immediately see how your contributions directly impact both our internal users and client experience. We make decisions based on facts, not fiction. Many of the problems we’re solving result in genuinely trail blazing solutions which can’t be found on StackOverflow; so we’re looking for an experienced engineer that thrives on working in a complex domain.

We use Go, microservices architecture (gRPC) and AWS, but if you come from a Java, Python or other relevant language we’ll help you get up to speed with our comprehensive engineering onboarding program.

How we work

We succeed as a team. Our teams are split into pods, each of which focuses on a specific aspect of our product. Any engineer is able to deploy to production, and we deploy multiple times each day. Your pod will include a product owner, back end engineers, Android and iOS developers, and web developers who each bring a unique perspective to the problem you’re all solving.

A typical day

  • Join the pod’s daily standup to share progress and remove blockers
  • Collaborate with other engineers on the design of a new payment integration to launch to a new market
  • Write clean, well-tested code that directly affects users, the company and the Bitcoin ecosystem
  • Grab lunch with the company (we provide lunch Monday - Thursday)
  • Coach a team member by giving feedback on their pull-request

What’s in it for you

This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about cryptocurrencies, blockchain, emerging and developed markets, and scaling a global business. We provide great benefits and the autonomy to conceive and execute your own projects. Best of all you get to work with a diverse team of talented, ambitious and friendly people on something that will truly revolutionise the world.

As a “Newnaut” we’ll fly you to Cape Town to meet the wider team, and go through our comprehensive onboarding program. We expect you to have a passion for blockchain and cryptocurrencies but we understand that this is a new industry so we’ll help you learn about how the blockchain works and understand all aspects of our business.

What you’ll need

Building a new financial system for the world requires a special breed of people working together with unusual skill, focus and determination. “Moontality” represents the ten core principles that underpin everything we do, setting us apart from the rest.

As an experienced lead-level or senior engineer, you’ll have:

  • A solid foundation in computer science in areas such as algorithms, data structures, and software design
  • Extensive programming experience in an object-oriented language. We use Go but we welcome applicants who have strong experience in other languages like Java, Scala or C++, etc.
  • Proven experience of building, shipping and supporting a product
  • An interest in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin

Don’t be put off if you don’t tick all of the boxes – they’re a guide based on what we’d love to see but we appreciate that great software engineers have diverse backgrounds.

London, United Kingdom
£35,000 to £65,000 a year
2 years ago

Job Description

**Distributed systems engineer Node.js

What makes Ably special?**
Ably helps power next generation digital experiences. Ones which are live rather than static, where data is in motion rather than at rest. Things like live chat, realtime location tracking, live document collaboration, gaming and eLearning. We’ve gained the trust of some the largest businesses in the world to integrate us into their stacks, businesses such as HubSpot, OfferUp, Tennis Australia and CA Technologies. We also work with a diverse range of tech startups globally powering features such as an air traffic control system for drones. Working at Ably means you are working on a cutting-edge product that is helping global brands shape the future.

What we can offer you – in brief
You will learn with the best. You will have autonomy and freedom to experiment and improve. You will be part of a dynamic team and a business that is taking off. We recently completed a $1m financing round to fuel our growth. We have the best technology, and the best people in the industry.

Join us now and you’ll be early in at a business going places, you’ll learn a lot, you’ll work with the founding team, and you’ll have fun.

What we want in return – in brief We want someone smart, ambitious, curious and motivated. Someone is prepared to do their best and work their arse off to do great work and become outstanding at what they do.

Job description
You’ll be working with a deeply technical engineering team who collectively bring a wealth of experience and broad technology skills. The calibre of the code we produce is what excites us each day and motivates us each. If you enjoy solving hard distributed system problems that are mostly platform agnostic and theoretical in nature, then you’ll love working at Ably. Our team is made up of a strong remote contingent, however our base is in London and growing. We are strong believers in face-to-face communication where possible. Whilst this is a remote working role, being able to practically travel to London occasionally is highly preferable and working on a similar time zone is a must.

Day to day you can expect to be working on:

  • The “core” realtime platform which is largely Node.js, and some shared services in Go. You may also be required to work on the various services and routing layers of the platform which are built in Go and Elixir (we would happy if you are comfortable in either Go or Elixir, both would be a big win). As an aside, we use Ruby for all infrastructure automation and orchestration and occasionally write lower-level native code where necessary (such as native modules for Node). We’re always revisiting the technologies we use and are always open to using new technologies where suitable.
  • Working within the realtime platform and solving distributed programming problems. Find out what it takes to be a distributed systems engineer.
  • Collaborating with the team to design, discuss and implement new features and services.
  • Diagnosing and fixing bugs in our platform using distributed tracing techniques.
  • Adding suitable test coverage to new features as well as existing functionality, conducting load tests using our frameworks, and generally helping to address platform stability and regression prevention.
  • Be responsible for the complete lifecycle of your features and code i.e. pull request, reviews, testing, deploy to staging and sandbox environments, then into production environments with ownership of any issues that arise. We are strong believers in all developers being involved in the system operations as well.
  • Contributing to open source projects that we support or use in our products. All of our client libraries are open source as well and may require your support at times.
  • Helping customers solve problems they are experiencing that may help us find bugs in the platform.
  • Support the wider team in regards to documentation and customer support.
  • Suggestions for new features or improvements to our protocol and API specifications.

Perks & Benefits

  • Salary range: £35k to £65k. Depends entirely on skills and experience.
  • Holidays: 25+ days excluding national holidays. Can be negotiated.
  • Benefit from a truly flexible working environment in which remote working and managing your own working time is the norm.
  • Work in an environment where code quality, technical challenges and delivery is what we all care about.
  • Skills development is intrinsic in the job. We’re largely working on unsolved problems each day, and such, there is plenty of scope to widen your knowledge and skillset.
  • Work with genuinely nice people who care.

Job Description

Risk Ledger is seeking software engineers to join our core team and take ownership of developing & shaping our platform that sits on the intersection of cybersecurity and risk management. This is an opportunity to work with the latest technologies to solve an increasingly important problem, and to have an outsized impact on a product early in its lifecycle.

We are looking for an amazing and talented team from a diverse set of backgrounds and skillsets to help us grow and build a truly special company, from scratch. The main focus of the role will be on backend development, but to excel you should be comfortable up and down the stack - it’s all hands on deck at this stage, so you’ll need to be ready and willing to delve into the front-end, ship new functionality, and be involved in the product development, improving and learning as we go.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Getting your code, and that of the team, into production - hopefully continuously and bug-free!
  • Helping to expose the backend functionality in the frontend when necessary. The UI is built in HTML, CSS and JavaScript using Vue.js, so you should be confident enough to understand how everything fits together and be happy to make improvements where appropriate.
  • Working closely with the customer relations side of the company, to ensure that we’re always focused on and building what is right for our clients to make their lives easier, not just ours.

What success will look like:

  • An awesome looking product, with the functionality our clients need.
  • A growing engineering team that people enjoy working with, who laugh together, know each other’s strengths and get the job done.
  • A rapidly expanding customer-base who are eager to use our product, keeping us on our toes when it comes to infrastructure and scaling.

Perks & Benefits

  • The autonomy and flexibility you need to deliver the work as you see fit.
  • The opportunity to get involved with, shape and lead the entire process of product strategy, design and implementation.
  • The equipment you need to get the job done.
  • All the learning resources and books you want to aid in your personal development.
  • Generous EMI stock options.
  • 32 days of holiday a year - take a break, enjoy yourself!
  • Up to an additional 30 days of unpaid leave a year to use as you wish.
  • Private health insurance.
  • Regular socials to unwind and have some fun.
