Senior Software Developer (Golang) - 100% Remote (UK/EU Only) with Form3Sponsored
Remote / Europe£80k - £95k
3 weeks ago

Job Description

This is a 100% remote role. UK/EU based only.

We are looking for Senior Software Developers who want to help build the next generation payment API in the cloud.

We’d like to hear from enthusiastic polyglot developers who want to work with the latest technologies, solve interesting problems and be part of a really great team. There are a wide range of problems to tackle, from configuring nginx proxies to writing custom payment routing and handling logic, and we contribute open source back to the community. We believe that the language you write the code in is just how you convey your solution to the computer and the real value is being able to think through a problem.

You will be working on new development projects, focused on best practice across the board, including automation of absolutely everything (Terraform for infrastructure deployments to AWS, CI/CD with contract-based testing and auto-deployment of services within Docker containers, etc.), pair programming and TDD/BDD. Although many of us live around London, we are operating as a remote team, and typically working from home and pair programming.

It’s very much a “best tool for the job” mentality at Form3 and our tech-stack is always evolving but to give you a flavour of what we’re currently working with here are some of the tools we use;

  • Some of the languages we currently use are: Golang, Java, Python and Ruby
  • Some of the tools we use: Kubernetes, Terraform, Docker, Vault, Consul, Linkerd
  • Our platform runs in AWS where we use: SQS, SNS, EC2, ECS, RDS and others

We don’t mind whereabouts you are based as we offer the opportunity for our team to work remotely from anywhere in the UK or EU. In fact, most of our Developers work, utilising screen-share technology and pair-programming to share knowledge across the team. That being said, we also have London and Amsterdam offices, so should you occasionally wish to work from these, you’d be most welcome.

Your Experience

  • Polyglot: Choosing the right tool to solve the problem is critical, and we expect you to have professional experience with at least 2 different programming languages and multiple platforms and tools.
  • Distributed architecture: We expect you to have previous experience engineering complex distributed systems, and a view on topics such as service discovery, integration testing, inter-process communication, how to define your services and APIs, as well as experience with distributed data stores.
  • Public cloud: You have worked with public cloud services (AWS, Google Cloud etc.)
  • TDD/BDD: Code quality is key, and we expect you to have worked with Test-driven development (TDD) and Behaviour-driven development (BDD) and be familiar with the use of tools such as Cucumber.

Desirable Experience

  • Most of our code is written in Java and Go, so experience with either would be helpful.
  • All our services are built and managed as docker containers, so Kubernetes, and general docker experience is preferred.
  • We like clean code, so experience with Event Sourcing/CQRS will be useful.
  • We do contract-based testing, using tools such as Pact.
  • We work as a devops team, so experience in automating operations (such as infrastructure as code, automated monitoring and alerting, build pipelines etc) would also be useful.

Whilst experience of the above technologies would be nice, it is by no means essential. We are looking to speak with well-rounded software professionals who have a breadth of experience across a variety of programming languages, are passionate about tech and enjoy working collaboratively within a team.


Perks & Benefits

  • 100% Remote
  • 30 days holiday (plus Bank Holidays)
  • Pair programming, with an experienced team of engineers
  • Competitive salary
  • Latest technologies
  • Company bonus scheme
  • Pension contribution
  • Be part of an incredible and diverse team

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

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 our product 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!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’ve also made our product 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 190 engineers out of roughly 1000 people in total - and we have big ambitions. As a security engineer here you’d be able to work directly with lots of teams 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 Linkerd/Finagle 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 (and everyone you know) use every day you’re constantly looking for flaws in systems and can reason about how best to address them 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.). Logistics

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

We have payroll set up in five countries: the UK, Ireland, France, Poland and Spain. Right now, we can only hire people who work from those countries and we’ll keep this updated with new ones as we expand and are able to hire from more places 🌎

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 try our best to make this happen. Just let us know in your application so we can plan for it.

We’re usually always hiring for Backend Engineers in Security, so there’s no closing date for this job.

Our interview process is normally a phone interview, a coding task and call to discuss it, and 2-3 hours of onsite interviews. We promise not to ask you any brain teasers or trick questions. We might design a system together on a whiteboard, the same way we often work together, but we won’t make you write code on one

Software Engineer with Pivotal
London, United Kingdom£60k - £75k
1 month 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.

Senior Backend Engineer

Build great technology that improves millions of lives.

Overview

Simprints builds cutting-edge technology for some of the poorest individuals in the world, and in the most challenging environments on earth. We are working at the exciting interface of biometrics, technology, and international development where our product is used to radically increase transparency and effectiveness, making sure that every vaccine, every dollar, every education initiative reaches its intended recipient. Working with mentors from top companies like Google, Microsoft, and ARM, we design and develop both hardware and software by applying modern tools in distinctly un-modern environments with little to no internet connectivity. Simprints is currently on track to support over 4 million people by 2021.

We are looking for engineers with a focus on cloud-native backend development to join our growing tech team. You will work on an agile, collaborative team with a commitment to clean code and robust design, along with a strong culture of continuous learning and improvement. If building technology for global health sounds exciting, we want to meet you!

Responsibilities

  • Design, build, and operate secure, reliable, and scalable services that allow Simprints to support projects all over the world
  • Leverage modern software development practices, such as DevOps, microservices and “serverless”
  • Actively develop junior engineers through mentoring and design/code reviews
  • Support growth of the team by attracting, on-boarding, and retaining top talent

Qualifications

  • At least 3 years of professional experience building and operating backend services, with some experience in systems design
  • At least 1 year of professional experience working with a major public cloud provider (Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services) using serverless or managed services (e.g. DynamoDB, BigQuery, any FaaS)
  • Good understanding of software engineering basics such as (but not limited to) OOP, agile, REST, testing, SQL, NoSQL
  • Commitment to lifelong learning. You eat new technologies for breakfast and stay up-to-date with recent trends (e.g. microservices, event-driven architecture, serverless)
  • Ability to clearly communicate and document design decisions in both verbal and written form

Bonus points

  • BS/MS/PhD in Computer Science or a related field
  • Familiarity with Golang && (Java || Kotlin || Scala)
  • Experience with mobile and/or web front-end. You have been on the other side of the API gateway

Why Simprints?

  • Use recent, developer-friendly technologies that let you focus on what matters:

  • Languages: Golang, Kotlin, Typescript

  • Infrastructure: Managed cloud databases (Firestore, BigQuery), managed compute nodes (App Engine, Cloud Functions), managed stream processing platform (Pub/Sub), managed logging/monitoring/tracing (Stackdriver)

  • Event-driven microservice architecture

  • Make a positive impact on millions of the most vulnerable people in the world

  • Work in a team of dedicated and talented engineers committed to writing high quality code. Our informal Clean Code Officer helps keep us honest

  • Optional opportunities to see our tech in action by joining our deployments around the world: Bangladesh, Ethiopia, or Zimbabwe just to name a few

  • Incredible perks

  • Unlimited paid time off. Last year, the average Simprints employee took a total of 31 days off (annual leave plus UK bank holidays)

  • 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

  • Work from the coolest office in Cambridge (the Bradfield Centre - think ‘mini-WeWork’)

2 months 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

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).

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.
