This job posting is no longer available
Stuart (DPD Group) is a sustainable 🌱 last-mile logistics company that connects retailers and e-merchants to a fleet of geolocalised couriers across several countries in Europe.
Our Mission 🚀
We are an impact-driven company that aims to build the future of logistics for a more sustainable world: shared, efficient and reliable. We are committed to creating a new standard for urban deliveries that meet today’s environmental and social challenges while offering a premium delivery experience blending speed, flexibility and convenience.
Our motto: “Make every delivery a moment all of us can truly celebrate!” More than 3000+ leading brands already partner with us across Restaurants, Grocery, Retail & Luxury, eCommerce and Professional Services to deliver all types of goods at the tap of a button. Stuart is a highly diverse and inclusive company of 700+ employees with 90+ nationalities working across France 🇫🇷, Italy 🇮🇹, Poland 🇵🇱, Portugal 🇵🇹, Spain 🇪🇸 and the U.K. 🇬🇧
It’s the right moment and the right place for us to make an impact on millions of people, as home delivery services hit a record high. And guess what? You can help us fulfil our vision 🙌
Let’s talk about Software Engineering 🌟
We are looking for a Platform Engineer 🤖 to work in our new developer experience department in the deployment team.
We want to build an amazing Internal Developer Platform. In order to achieve that goal, we want to give time and space to a group of people that are very passionate about how an elite software development team works and wants to help to optimize our team’s workflow.
We want all teams to be able to self-service their needs without the need to put a ticket on any board when they need something.
We want to treat our developer platform as a product. We want to iterate it step by step making the lives of the rest of the developers in the company easier so they can focus on the business needs.
This team will be a mix of putting together existing open source solutions and building our own. We use things like Kubernetes, ArgoCD, or Crossplane to set the foundations for the rest of our teams.
You will decide how our services will be configured and, following the “automate all the things” mantra, we expect you to automate these decisions so that they are easy to follow by the rest of the engineering team.
If we had to play the buzzword bingo we’d say:
- Solid knowledge of a programming language. It would be great if it was Go
- Microservices: Orchestration, build pipelines, test pipelines
- Kubernetes and tools to create abstractions on top of it. KuveVela, Crossplane
In this team you will become an expert in these technologies and you will be able to provide abstractions so that the rest of the engineering team does not have to.
You will be assigned to an onboarding buddy who will help you make yourself at home at Stuart. You will start meeting people from all departments to learn more about what we do and start to understand the general principles that are driving our architecture.
You should get in touch with how we are deploying our software today and where we want to go in the future.You will be paired with some teammates to start delivering your first code.
In three months…
You should start to understand the different processes that happen across our company within the other teams.
You should already be part of the deployment team’s vision. You should be participating in your team’s ceremonies. Each team has its own working agreements, as long as they are aligned within the company. Currently, your team is working according to the Kanban philosophy with periodic retrospectives.
In six months…
As you begin to understand the department's long term vision you should start participating in some design discussions and even the recruitment of the team.
You should already know some of our engineers so you can engage in discussions with them to find out their pain points in terms of our pipeline building and help them solve them.
What do we need from you? 😎
Other than technical skills we are looking for a person that is able to create a good experience for other engineers.
Empathic with other engineers’ pain points.
Able to have a discussion respecting the other person.
Willing to learn new technologies that force you out of your comfort zone. We deploy software built-in many programming languages, using many frameworks and with very heterogeneous requirements, which can sometimes be a challenge.
A good communicator since we will have to design and communicate processes to other engineers.
At Stuart, we believe that employees today want to evolve in collaborative, high-growth environments where they can demonstrate their abilities and thrive both professionally and personally. We are convinced that employees need to find alignment between their inner values and their company’s culture and mission to unlock their full potential. We work to create a culture of empowerment, continuous learning and growth where everyone can bring expertise, own projects and easily measure their impact 🙌
Stuart is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace dedicated to promoting diversity. We don’t discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status or disability status 💙
Please note: Our Talent Acquisition Team is international coming from across the world 🌍 We kindly ask you to please submit your CV and application in English so that it can be reviewed correctly (unless the job posting is in a language other than English). Thank you 🤗

NHS prescriptions are complicated. And we want to change that. Driven by an innovative spirit and strong moral compass, we’re on a mission to make NHS prescriptions simple for everyone.
Since 2015 we’ve grown from a plucky start-up to a team of over 200 people – and become the fastest growing pharmacy in the UK. Today, over half a million people use our apps to manage their NHS prescriptions, and our patients rate us as ‘Excellent’ on Trustpilot.
But there’s so much more to do. Because while 1 in 2 adults in the UK has a repeat prescription, only 3.2% of them use an online pharmacy. And we need bright minds to help us change how people manage their medicine for good.

- Mentor other engineers through code reviews and pairing
This role is for you if

You like being able to dip in and out of different parts of the stack wherever you are most needed and are keen to get stuck into and learn about the parts you don’t know yet
You love mentoring other engineers and believe that doing it is at least as valuable as your work as an individual contributor
This role may not be for you if
You’re more into quibbling about tech stacks or coding styles (we have linters for that) than creating a really great product
You measure your success by lines of code written over the impact it has
You only want to work off fully specified requirements and to not have to talk with your team mates

What are you waiting for? Get in touch and let's talk about who we are, what we want to achieve and what the future holds.
We’re innovative, we’re ambitious, we are Holland & Barrett!
We're looking for an experienced Backend Go Software Engineer to join the Geckoboard team!
Why join us...
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.

Perks & Benefits
Work your best
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.
