Level

$120,000 to $120,000 a year
October 2021
6 Applicants This Week

Job Description

Level is building a modern remote monitoring and management solution. We are a small, well-funded, team that recently launched our product. 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 scares 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

  • You are comfortable using GCC, and find yourself at home going through a C codebase.
  • Familiarity with RPC and common methods of IPC such as sockets and named pipes.
  • Video encoding experience. You have worked with VP8 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 patch management system to give users control over OS updates.
  • Working with VP8 to reduce the latency and bandwidth when streaming a device.
  • Creating a system tray GUI for the agent.
  • Expanding desktop streaming to work on Mac and Linux.
  • Adding a proxy to the agent to enable remote access to routers and switches.
  • Implementing Trickle ICE to improve WebRTC connection times.

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’ve recently launched and are starting to grow.
  • We will offer profit sharing so our small team will receive dividends on profits the company makes.

Why you might not want to work with us

  • We are an early-stage startup, and while we are well funded, we are careful with our runway and haven’t splurged on extra perks like gym memberships or 401k matching. You want to work with a large team. We do not intend to hire more until it is painful enough to warrant doing so.

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 our new product. We have recently launched and have acquired our first customers. Though we are a startup, our investors have given us a multi-year runway.

Currently, our agent team is made up of a single amazing developer. This hire will join them to expand the agent team. This developer should be 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’re going to be improving this product for years 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.

About the Application Process

Collaboration and communication are a critical aspect of how we work, a cover letter is a great way to provide a sample of how you communicate.

In your cover letter, please describe why you’re interested in working at Level, and what draws you to this role in particular. Specifics of your past experience that are relevant to this role are great to include, too.

Pay

We’re looking for someone great but we’re an early-stage startup. We are offering a rate of 120k plus profit sharing (once we have profits 😅). We hope to grow quickly and are committed to increasing the base pay of everyone on the team at each stage of growth.

€40,000 to €80,000 a year
September 2021
12 Applicants This Week

Job Description

Location: Lyon or remote Job type: Full-Time Salary: according to your level of expertise and experience

About Upfluence

Upfluence helps brands tell their story with powerful influencer & content marketing technology. Upfluence’s software allows brands and agencies to identify and contact millions of social influencers and bloggers at scale to execute comprehensive influencer marketing campaigns, as well as provide detailed reporting metrics. Since the launch of our SaaS software in January 2017, the company has yielded a monthly double-digit growth rate, and we are therefore seeking further expansion for our team and offices. Our rapidly growing global team is currently distributed between our offices in NYC, Los Angeles, Switzerland, and Lyon.

We are now looking for a talented and passionate Back-end Engineer who, together with the product team, will take part in creating and constantly improving the online platform.

What we do

  • Our platform aggregates, keeps up to date and serves the content of 5M of influencers across all trending social networks of the internet. This raises a certain amount of engineering challenges related to data, scalability and performance. At the scale we’re at, the naïve solution often isn’t enough.
  • Our backend stack is focused around Golang / Ruby as programming languages, PostgreSQL, Apache Cassandra as database systems, Elasticsearch as a search engine, RabbitMQ as message broker. Also, we use Apache Thrift for RPC and Prometheus for monitoring to name a few.
  • We’re firm believers of micro service architecture and domain driven design, making our codebase highly flexible and reusable. Some parts of our production have actually been running for more than 5 years!
  • We’re DevOps minded. Our backend engineers ship to production multiple times a day and are responsible for their production. We’re always working towards reducing the maintenance toil by automating as much as possible our processes using tools like Github actions or our own in-house frontend deployer.
  • We’re running around 50 applications in production, making it around 1600 containers live, across 90 servers. Not to mention that we’ve been running containers in production for more than 7 years. We’re currently in the works of moving our production workload to Kubernetes.
  • We’re product-centric: we’re not writing code for the sake of it, but to provide the best service to our customers.
  • We strongly believe that collective intelligence is the very root of success for an engineering organization. Each and everyone has a word to say regarding the technical implementation of a feature. That’s why we rely on tools like proposals and RFCs to encourage this culture, as the best companies in the field do.
  • We love open source and contribute to it by opening our own libraries to share them with as many people as possible.

Responsibilities

  • Writing highly reliable, maintainable and tested code that makes the correct assumptions based on the context. You know that in our field, everything is a matter of tradeoffs.
  • Getting involved in the feature lifecycle, from its inception, through its technical design and implementation, to its maintenance in production 3 months / years after releasing it ;-).
  • Work in collaboration with the team, get involved in mentoring juniors, reviewing PRs and writing RFCs. Being at ease with written communication is a must.
  • Work hand in hand with Customer Success and Support teams, to make sure our customers have the best experience using our product.

Who we are looking for

  • You’re eager to discover how our product works and you’re keen to learn and master its technologies.

  • You care about the product and strive to make something useful.

What we can offer you

Most of your day will be dedicated to software design, research, and coding. On typical projects, you will have a lot of freedom and you will be paired with another team member. Our team is made up of very experienced engineers, some with more than 10 years of experience. By working together you will learn from each other along the way. You will have an enormous impact on making our API service faster, more scalable and more flexible.

You will add new features to the service and find ways to make the existing ones perform orders of magnitude faster. Our customers have millions of users; they use Stream for mission critical features such as showing content and exposing core functionality of their application. Building stable and reliable software is not just an option: as a member of the development team, you will design and write state-of-the-art software, follow best practices, measure everything and be responsible for deployment to production.

  • High availability: our entire infrastructure is designed and operated to survive entire datacenter crashes
  • Multi-region: we deploy our service on 4 different continents

You have

  • Proficiency in Go
  • 5+ years as a backend developer
  • Experience with high traffic and high performance applications
  • Good knowledge of relational databases
  • Experience with building HTTP APIs
  • Experience managing your own projects and work in a team

Our tech stack

At Stream we use a wide collection of technologies to offer highly optimized and available features to our customers. Over the years we have experimented with different programming languages, frameworks, databases, and libraries. Here is a short list of the technology that we currently use. Do not worry if you do not master them all or if you do not see your favorite tool or language, you will have the chance to be exposed to most and to convince us to expand the list:

  • Go, gRPC, RocksDB, Python
  • Postgresql, RabbitMQ
  • AWS, Puppet, CloudFormation
  • Grafana, Graphite, ELK, Jaeger
  • Redis, Memcached

What we have to offer you

Stream employees enjoy some of the best benefits in the industry:

  • A team of exceptional engineers
  • The chance to work on OSS projects
  • A competitive salary
  • 28 days paid time off plus paid Dutch holidays
  • Company equity
  • A pension scheme
  • A generous Learning and Development budget

Backend Go Engineer
Geckoboard
Remote (United Kingdom)
£60,000 to £85,000 a year
August 2021
14 Applicants This Week

Job Description

We’re looking for an experienced Backend Go Software Engineer to join the Geckoboard team!

The Company

At Geckoboard, we know that barriers to data access, understanding, and awareness make it impossible for most businesses to deliver the right data to the right people, putting the transformational potential of data-driven decisions out of reach. We think that’s not only a shame but a huge missed opportunity.

It doesn’t have to be that way. By making data accessible and understandable for everyone, not just professional data analysts, those barriers disappear. Rather than technological complexity, we believe that data-informed people should be at the centre of an organisation’s data strategy.

However, how you build something is just as important as what you’re building. We’re tackling big problems, but we do it in a way that recognises everyone’s need to work with dignity and purpose in a supportive and inclusive environment.

We believe that people do their best work in an atmosphere of openness, trust and transparency, where everyone is empowered to learn and flourish. This is not just lip service, it’s a founding principle that has been at the heart of how we work for over 10 years.

The Job

We’re eagerly looking for an experienced Backend Engineer with experience in using Go to be a key member for one of our cross-functional product teams.

You’ll be joining a small but nimble 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!

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.

Logistics

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

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!

Backend Engineer
Cuvva
London, United Kingdom
£75,000 to £90,000 a year
July 2021
7 Applicants This Week

Job Description

About Cuvva

Cuvva is making car insurance radically better.

We’re creating truly flexible products that meet people’s real needs. Using lightning-fast technology to unlock better experiences and fairer prices for our customers, Cuvva is building the future of insurance every day.

Cuvva was the first UK company to sell hourly insurance through an app. Since then we’ve sold over 3 million policies and supported over 450,000 customers. We’re a world-class team of over 100 people, passionate about solving our customers’ problems. Join us.

Why work for Cuvva?

We don’t cut corners. We strive to do the right thing, even when that makes life more difficult for us.

We are customer centric and everyone in every area of the business–including our CEO & Founder Freddy–is expected to spend a few hours a month on customer support. This is so we all fully understand customer needs and how the app works! Here’s a blog post on our ‘Cops Club’.

We’ve nurtured an awesome team culture. We always speak up when we have an idea - but also 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.

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)


Perks & Benefits

Benefits

As well as a competitive salary (£75-90k, dependent on experience) and equity based remuneration, benefits of working at Cuvva include:

• Brand new MacBook 💻

• 33 days holiday (inc public holidays🌞)

• Flexible working

• Wellbeing, personal development and work from home budgets

• Yearly increases to budgets and holiday allowances

• Generous parental leave policy

• One-to-one sessions with our Sanctus mental health coaches, giving you a safe space to talk 🧠

• Access to Lifeworks - our mental health tool and employee assistance programme

• Mates rates on your car insurance

• Salary sacrifice schemes for electric bike hire and electric car lease

• Cycle to work scheme 🚲

• Season ticket loans 🚂

• A volunteer day

• Office library full of great books 📚

• Great coffee machine in the office ☕️

• Fully stocked beer and soft drink fridge (we do team drinks every Thursday)

• Monthly team outings or remote events (so far we’ve done things like karaoke, go-karting, bowling and comedy nights) 🎤

Organise
London, United Kingdom / Remote (Europe)
£72,000 to £90,000 a year
June 2021
7 Applicants This Week

Job Description

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.

💫 Who we are

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.

Read more about our principles:

Principles - Organise

“I can’t believe it! It’s only been a week since I started my Organise campaign to stamp out harassment in gyms. And already, the CEOs of Pure Gym and The Gym Group want to talk about how they can make their gyms safer.” Organise member, April 2021

🙌 About the role and our team

We’re a team who:

  • Are passionate about making high quality digital products that give our users power to improve their lives at work

  • Can collaborate effectively, inspire other team members, and start from a position of empathy

  • Understand the business and social mission of Organise, and work with the broader team to prioritise ideas and features that will deliver for our users

  • Are comfortable working in an early-stage environment, and the uncertainty (fun!) that change can bring. We get the right balance between thoroughly-tested code, and getting things done

We’re looking to scale our engineering team to build out our network product, on an infrastructure that’s fit to scale with us.

We have a great starting point: hundreds of thousands of active users that love the Organise product, a straightforward deployment process, and a big focus on great user experience. We have plans to ensure scalability while we grow as a team - pairing as much as we can, an agile approach to product development and dedicated time to evaluate and improve our processes.

We build most of our software in Ruby (mostly Rails) and React, use Postgres hosted on AWS RDS for our databases, and use Heroku to host most of our web applications.

As Lead Engineer you will:

  • Play a leading role shaping the culture and developer experience of the engineering team - building a team that has a deep commitment to delivering products that empower our users and improve working life for everyone

  • Work closely with our CTO and CEO to set priorities and direction for our product and infrastructure. You’ll play a scrum master role for development of our network product - inspiring and setting clear direction for team members

  • Get to know (and work on) the entire product and infrastructure - you’ll spend time with our campaign coaches and Organise users to see our product in action. You’ll get into the detail of how our tech empowers members to improve their lives at work, and you’ll feed ideas from the whole team into our tech strategy

  • Work directly with our backend engineers to improve our infrastructure, so that we’re ready to scale globally for millions of users

  • Support, coach and develop engineers to thrive in their roles through regular 121s, feedback and team retrospectives

💪 You should apply if

  • What we’re building at Organise excites you!

  • You have experience managing and developing software engineers and building collaborative, caring, and high performing teams

  • You have experience with Ruby on Rails and React

  • You are curious and passionate about solving problems and building products that empower millions of users

  • You enjoy thinking about data and architecture, and can demonstrate an understanding of good database design

  • You have experience leading product development in a scrum/agile environment

  • You have experience setting priorities at a high level - bringing together long-term infrastructure goals and product design

  • You have experience working with legacy codebases

  • You are able to communicate effectively and work well with a diverse range of non-technical colleagues

  • You are open-minded and willing to learn new approaches to your role and our culture

🥳 You’ll benefit from:

  • Equity in the business

  • Wellbeing benefit and access to mental health support with Spill

  • Remote working budget

  • Learning & development budget + progression support

  • Involved in other aspects of the business, from strategy, management and training, to shaping team culture

  • Being part of something that’s both commercially successful and socially important

💥 Some highlights from 2021

  • 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.

✨ Logistics

  • 🧑‍💻 Location: Can be remote (within +/- 5 hours of GMT) or based in our London Kings Cross office (a dog-friendly office 🐶 with a lot of plants 🌱) and will we provide you with all the tools you need!

Job Description

Consul helps organizations automate network configurations, discover services, and enable secure connectivity across any cloud or runtime. We recently launched Hashicorp Consul Service on Azure, a fully managed application available through the Azure marketplace. We’ve also announced the availability of Consul on AWSthrough our flagship HashiCorp Cloud Platform (HCP), a self-service, fully managed platform offering HashiCorp products as a service to automate infrastructure on any cloud.

About HashiCorp

HashiCorp is a fast-growing startup that solves development, operations, and security challenges in infrastructure so organizations can focus on business-critical tasks. We build products to give organizations a consistent way to manage their move to cloud-based IT infrastructures for running their applications. Our products enable companies large and small to mix and match AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and other clouds as well as on-premises environments, easing their ability to deliver new applications for their business.

At HashiCorp, we have used the Tao of HashiCorp as our guiding principles for product development and operate according to a strong set of company principles for how we interact with each other. We value top-notch collaboration and communication skills, both among internal teams and in how we interact with our users.

Engineering at HashiCorp is largely a remote team. While prior experience working remotely isn’t required, we are looking for team members who perform well given a high level of independence and autonomy.

About the Role:

On the Consul team, we help organizations automate network configurations, discover services, and enable secure connectivity across any cloud or runtime. The customers and large community of users of our tools are operators, infrastructure engineers, and software developers that encounter novel performance, scaling, and usability challenges that we help them solve.

Consul started as an infrastructure management tool for service discovery and health checking, and has evolved to become a full-featured service mesh. Some of the functionality you’ll be working on will include proxy integrations, Envoy’s xDS APIs, certificate management for mutual TLS connectivity, and security through service-oriented Intentions. You’ll be an active contributor to the service mesh ecosystem, following new developments in emerging technology and competitive offerings, looking for opportunities for product differentiation, and rethinking product architecture to meet new global scale and organizational demands.

In this role you can expect to:

  • Program mostly in Go, learning from and contributing to a team committed to continually improving their skills.
  • Build and architect distributed systems for service connectivity across heterogeneous environments (Kubernetes, VMs, bare metal datacenter or edge deployments).
  • Interface directly with internal teams, users and HashiCorp customers, as well as the larger Consul community.
  • Participate in user research studies and discussions with product managers and customers to better understand the network topologies, challenges, and constraints for which operators are trying to solve, and leverage those insights when approaching feature design and implementation.
  • Propose new functionality or substantive changes through written documents in an async process, describing the problem background, proposed implementation and example UX, then iterating on peer feedback collaboratively.
  • Own the full lifecycle of feature development from design through testing, release and support.

You may be a good fit for our team if you have:

  • Experience in a lower-level language like Go.
  • Familiarity with service-oriented architectures, and ideally have worked on an infrastructure or platform team building internal tooling to deploy, connect and monitor them.
  • Empathy for the people operating, learning, teaching and supporting software you write, and consider their experience when making design decisions and performance, security or complexity tradeoffs.
  • Awareness of the broader service mesh ecosystem and an interest in contributing to a full-featured product offering while reducing complexity and barriers to adoption for practitioners.
  • Curiosity for academic computer science research, particularly distributed systems papers such as Raft and Paxos variants, and enjoy learning more about the challenges of consistency at global scale.
  • Collaborate with peer engineers in discussions around performance, user experience, security and other constraints when designing complex systems.

What is our hiring process like?

The below serves as a basic outline; we may choose to add or remove steps based on the information that we gather during the process.

  • Introductory Call with someone from our recruiting team.
  • First Interview with an Engineering Manager
  • Interview Loop with additional team members, with the following panel:
    • Technical Code Pairing interview
    • Code Review interview
    • Communication and Collaboration interview
    • Systems and architecture interview
  • If applicable, a final conversation with the Engineering Manager for the team you would be joining
  • Offer

We do our best to accommodate your programming language of choice for technical interviews.

About the Application Process:

Please note, as collaboration and communication are a critical aspect of how we work, a cover letter is a great way to provide a sample of how you communicate.

In your cover letter, please describe why you’re interested in working at HashiCorp, and what draws you to this role in particular. Specifics of your past experience that are relevant to this role are great to include, too.

HashiCorp embraces diversity and equal opportunity. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. We believe the more inclusive we are, the better our company will be.

Engineering at Bud

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.

What is it like to work for Bud?

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

A bit more about us

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.

More about what we’re doing

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.

We believe that diversity will make us better.

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.

Job Description

Comnoco is a young SaaS company with an enterprise grade product. We’ve built (in Go) a way to program backends without writing code. Users can create APIs and functions as a service as well as visually build amazing PDFs and other communications.

We’re looking for an experienced Golang developer to join us on this journey and be a part of our core early team.

Our high-level tech stack is Go, speaking gRPC between microservices and gRPC-web to our frontend which is written in Typescript and Vue. PostgreSQL, Bolt & Minio cover storage and the Ory.sh stack covers everything identity & Auth.

A significant portion of the development has been done, we need someone to join our existing friendly team and help us build on this foundation.

This is a fun project, and we believe you’d be hard pushed to find another one as interesting or with the same opportunity for professional development.

We value honesty, kindness, fun, collaboration and people who love tech. 🤓 We’re an equal opportunity employer and have always had a diverse team.
