Job Description

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 - ArgoCD

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 can learn more about our team in our engineering blog: https://medium.com/stuart-engineering

What will I be doing? 🤔

In your first month…

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 💙

  • Use the latest AWS services available to run your code

Job Description

About LloydsDirect

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.

True to our start-up roots, LloydsDirect has a supportive, entrepreneurial culture. We move fast, challenge the status quo, and always try to do the right thing. Sound good? Then we’d love to hear from you.

What you’ll do as Senior Software Engineer

As a senior engineer you will: - Understand our business goals and strategy and be able to make decisions based on them - Be able to take ambiguous problems, break them down, and help to find elegant solutions that don’t gloss over the details - Contribute to code shared across projects - Mentor other engineers through code reviews and pairing

This role is for you if

  • You’re excited by the idea of working on a product that helps make people’s lives better
  • The technology we use sounds interesting to you (or you already know and love it)
  • Reading a 1500 page document on the Zebra programming language sounds like a fun afternoon
  • 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

Perks & Benefits

● £350 per year physical wellbeing allowance e.g. gym membership, dancing classes ● £500 per year personal learning and development budget ● £500 per year working from home set up budget ● Enhanced maternity (13 weeks fully paid) and paternity (6 weeks fully paid) ● Pension contribution

Interview Process

  1. Screening call with internal talent partner
  2. 30 minute video call with head of engineering
  3. 45 minute video call to discuss ways of working
  4. 60 minute video call to assess technical skills

Backend Go Engineer
Geckoboard
Remote (United Kingdom)
£60,000 to £85,000 a year
August 2021
1 Applicants This Week
This job posting is no longer available

Job Description

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 stack

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.

You should apply if...

  • What we’ve described sounds interesting

  • You’ve worked with Go before*

  • You’re interested in distributed systems

  • 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

  • You have experience collaborating on technical decisions in an open and creative environment

  • You understand the value of automated testing and a test-driven development approach

  • 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!

Logistics

At this time, we’re only considering candidates who are (or will be) based in the United Kingdom or Western Europe (CET timezone).


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.

Interview Process

Our hiring process

  1. 20-30 minute call with our Talent Partner
  2. 45-minute Zoom video call with the Hiring Manager
  3. Coding Challenge
  4. Meet the team via Zoom - about 2.5 hours

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

We’re building a diverse team from different backgrounds, outlooks and experiences. Everyone is given a fair chance of getting a role at Cuvva. Even if you secretly don’t love insurance, trust us, you’ll love what we’re building.

About the role

You’ll work in one of our cross-functional product squads, helping the team achieve their goals - whether that’s building a new service in our backend platform, creating a new version of an existing API to deliver a new feature, or creating a CLI tool to automate something.

We work in a highly collaborative fashion, and maintain an open and transparent work environment. Engineers at Cuvva don’t just write code or implement against a spec. You’ll be expected and encouraged to take part in the entire product development process from problem-discovery to solution design, to implementation and rollout.

Each product squad autonomously owns an area of the Cuvva product. Squads are made up of engineers from multiple disciplines (backend, web, iOS, Android), product and content designers, and a product manager. Engineers at Cuvva come from a variety of backgrounds and have different but complementary skill sets. We don’t require a computer science degree - many of us are self-taught.

Our approach

We value consistently-written, simple, resilient systems. Our backend is made up of many standalone services with a JSON-based RPC interface. We aim to create a client-agnostic API design suitable for a variety of clients (mobile apps, website, internal tooling, 3rd parties). Because we’re a regulated financial company, we have interesting and rigorous requirements to meet with regards to data security and auditability.

Most systems are written in Go (some older ones are Javascript), backed by either Postgres or Mongo, and are hosted in a container environment. We heavily lean on AWS tooling such as S3, Lambda, and SQS, and we occasionally build integrations with more “legacy” 3rd party systems in the insurance industry.

You can find out more about our backend systems here: Our libraries and Go tooling is open sourced on GitHub “Showing off our K-sortable IDs” our blog

“How we analyse and test new pricing models” our blog

“How we test and roll out new product features” our blog

You'll do great here if you:

• Have genuine interest and curiosity about the Cuvva product, and consumer insurance in general

• Enjoy working as a team to solve problems collaboratively

• Have around 5 years of experience building rock-solid backend systems and APIs

• Have a track record of shipping great quality code with real customer impact

• Be comfortable and productive working with Go

• We don’t require commercial Go experience but you would be expected to have a basic understanding and a willingness to learn

• Having a background with at least one statically-typed language is a good sign

• Know your way around the major AWS services (or similar cloud services), and have an enthusiasm for cloud services in general

• Be comfortable working with containers (e.g. Docker, K8S, ECR, container based CI platforms)
