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. We want our bank to be safe and secure for our customers, so security is very important to us

Security at Monzo

Monzo’s security team has a wide range of responsibilities, from infrastructure security to application security. As a bank, we are solving diverse, novel problems to ensure that our customers are safe and secure.

One of the guiding principles of security at Monzo is that security at the expense of user experience is a last resort. We aim to move mountains in the background such that we can build world-class features without compromising on security.

As a member of our security team you would be responsible for constantly improving the security of Monzo, and you would work closely with other teams to ensure that our systems are secure by design. Of course, security incidents can and do occur, and the security team is involved with many different types of incident response.

Our 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

Software Engineer with Pivotal
London, United Kingdom£60k - £75k
4 months ago

Job Description

Always be kind: a simple daily affirmation and one that feels more like a personal mission statement than a corporate motto – but Pivotal isn’t just any corporation. Underpinning our world-class capabilities in cloud-native software delivery and agile development methodologies is one common thread: empathy. Not only do we want to transform the way the world builds software, we also want to make sure that sustainable pace, kindness, and diversity are at the core of every enterprise.

Known for taking an iterative approach, our 2000+ employees are empowered every day to help shape the way we build software. Pivotal is committed to open source, a diverse culture, and fostering safe spaces for all of our individual employees.

*You*

You are looking for a collaborative environment building distributed systems that enable enterprises to focus on their business rather than re-architecting a cloud platform from scratch. Pair programming has always been something that you wanted to try out.

Furthering your education has always been a goal of yours. Learning new programming languages and getting to work with Golang piques your interest.

Contributing to open source software makes you feel good about the transparency it brings to an organization’s code quality.

*Us*

Agile concepts are at the core of our process. We have a whole host of Pivotal Practices around Test Driven Development, pair programming, team retrospectives, technical retrospectives and continuous integration. We are excited to teach these to you and innovate with you on their implementation.

We stick to a strict 8 hour a day schedule (with flexible start and end times). Although on-call rotations are part of most teams, incidents are exceedingly rare.

We pair in small teams of 4 - 8 people in our London office, conveniently located at Old Street. We use Slack to stay connected and Tmux for pairing. We are working hard to make sure that our distributed teams function as smoothly as our distributed systems.

You’ll rarely be alone when developing; from pairing all day to 1 on 1 time with your manager, there is always a Pivot there to lend a helping hand. Mentorship from senior engineering leadership is built right into our process - you’ll always be empowered.

Making an investment in each Pivot’s professional development improves the organization as a whole. We encourage you to go to conferences or purchase those pricey O’Reilly books - and we’ll give you a budget each year to do it.

*Your Day*

As cliche as it may sound, every day is completely different from the next. We have a general framework for what our day looks like and the majority of it will be spent with your pair:

9:06 AM - Office-wide stand-up to build office cohesion and start the day off together.

9:10 AM - Team standup - discuss any blockers, choose pairs, maybe even tell a joke.

9:30-12:30 PM - Start pairing, tackle an open GitHub issue and open a pull-request.

12:30-1:30 PM - Lunch! Grab food from one of the many nearby restaurants, run an errand, or join a book club.

1:31-6:00 PM - Get back with your pair and start an acceptance test for a big feature.

While that schedule does look busy, don’t worry - we take ample breaks throughout the day. Take a walk to get boba, read a book on the balcony, play a game of ping pong, or chat with co-workers at the snack bar. Sustainable pace is held in high regard. We know there is a life outside of work, we want you to be able to spend time with family and friends.

*Desired Skills / Experience*

We know from experience that not ticking every box on the skills sections stops many from applying. You should apply regardless of your self-assessment because we want to hear from you.

  • Ability to dive into a large polyglot codebase and contribute as you learn
  • Being okay with the uncomfortable feeling that comes from learning new things
  • Interest in exploring new programming paradigms, languages, and patterns
  • Demonstrable ability to research problems and break them into discrete parts

*Nice to Haves*

  • BA/BS in Computer Science or related field
  • Operations or Systems Administration experience, particularly on UNIX
  • Worked with large Go/Ruby/Rails codebases
  • Used Test Driven Development (TDD) extensively
  • Worked in a pair programming environment
  • Contributed to an open source project
  • On-call experience with production grade systems
  • Has mentored others in a professional setting

Cloud Foundry engineers participate in an on-call rotation with their team to support software they work on.

Pivotal is an Equal Employment Opportunity employer that will consider all qualified applicants, regardless of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, gender identity or expression, national origin, genetics, age, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by applicable law.

  • Truly flexible working hours. More efficient late at night? That’s fine by us, start after lunch. We are looking for people who get the job done, not for people who get the job done between 9am and 5pm

  • A generous budget (>£1,500) to spend on both learning and wellness. In the past, Simprints engineers have spent this on attending tech conferences, enrolling in Udacity nanodegrees, joining bouldering gyms, and organizing instructor-led yoga sessions in the office

  • Two ‘LEGO Days’ each quarter where you can work on any project you want. Past projects have ranged from exploring image processing techniques to building a LEGO train to deliver beer around the office

Cloud Native Engineer with Container Solutions
London, United Kingdom£60k - £80k
4 months ago

Job Description

Why this job matters

IT has become the core asset for most businesses. Our Cloud Native engineers guide our clients through this increasingly complex IT landscape.

We build confidence with cloud technologies and help clients transition to modern architecture. Our engineers also work with Cloud Native vendors on next-generation open-source tools.

What we look for

  • Background in development or operations; we’re looking for senior engineers.
  • Experience with at least one programming language and/or scripting (e.g. Go, Java, Python, C++, Bash).
  • Experience with microservices (technologies like Docker, Kubernetes, Mesos) is valuable.
  • We are a cloud agnostic. Any cloud experience (AWS, Google, Azure) is a plus.
  • Cloud automation and infrastructure provisioning (Terraform, Ansible, Cloud Formation etc).
  • We value consultancy skills and community work, such as open-source contribution, meetups and conference talks, and/or blogging. We’re more than just engineers.

Why apply

You’ll be in charge of shaping a new IT architecture for some of the best companies in the world. We work in small, self-managed teams that take full responsibility for the projects. We’re not tech/cloud service resellers. We mix the best open-source tools and services that make sense for the project. We move fast and deliver mainly short-term projects (2-4 months), mostly working from our offices. We automate the infrastructure of our customers and deploy orchestration layers on top of it to run apps and data.

All our engineers are encouraged to share their knowledge at conferences and within the company. We consider ourselves a continuous learning company. There are no rockstars here, just people that wanna grow themselves and their community. Switching between projects/roles/offices is possible and quite common.
