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.

The role is full time and fully remote (even post Covid) but you need to be UK based and eligible to work in the UK.

January 2021
2 Applicants This Week

Job Description

Fastly helps people stay better connected with the things they love. Fastly’s edge cloud platform enables customers to create great digital experiences quickly, securely, and reliably by processing, serving, and securing our customers’ applications as close to their end-users as possible — at the edge of the Internet. The platform is designed to take advantage of the modern internet, to be programmable, and to support agile software development. Fastly’s customers include many of the world’s most prominent companies, including Vimeo, Pinterest, The New York Times, and GitHub.

We're building a more trustworthy Internet. Come join us.

Principal Software Engineer - Edge Data

You will be one of the first engineers working on a brand-new system that Fastly has been prototyping and is now beginning to operationalize. The system applies cutting-edge distributed systems theory — notably, CRDTs — to Fastly's global network to provide an infrastructure for state at the edge.

What You'll Do

  • Learn the distsys theory and Go implementation of the project to proficiency, becoming a technical "co-founder" and owner
  • Optimize system performance to meet Fastly's Internet-scale requirements, via testing, profiling, refactoring, and redesigning
  • Collaborate with customer-facing teams to define and implement primitives that will power a huge number of future Fastly products
  • Help to design, develop, and participate in a process for onboarding new engineers to the project, with a focus on mentorship and growth
  • Work in a small team that's highly motivated to find new, innovative ways to give our customers new capabilities

What We're Looking For

  • Clear, effective, and empathetic communication skills, both written and verbal, especially when discussing complex technical topics
  • Intermediate+ proficiency with Go (Golang), ideally having built and operated one or more large-scale projects
  • Advanced distributed systems theory experience, especially eventual consistency, and a strong interest in learning more
  • A "systems thinker" who always keeps the big picture in mind, even as they work on the smallest details
  • Effective at asynchronous remote work, with teammates across the world

Why Fastly?

  • We have a huge impact. Fastly is a small company with a big reach. Not only do our customers have a tremendous user base, but we also support a growing number of open source projects and initiatives. Outside of code, employees are encouraged to share causes close to their heart with others so we can help lend a supportive hand.

  • We love distributed teams. Fastly’s home-base is in San Francisco, but we have multiple offices and employees sprinkled around the globe. In fact, 50% of our employees work outside of SF! An international remote culture is in our DNA.

  • We care about you. Fastly works hard to create a positive environment for our employees, and we think your life outside of work is important too. We support our teams with great benefits like up to 20 weeks of paid parental leave, options for free medical/dental/vision plans, and an open vacation program that enables our folks to take the time they need to recharge (some benefits may vary by location).

  • We value diversity. Growing and maintaining our inclusive and diverse team matters to us. We are committed to being a company where our employees feel comfortable bringing their authentic selves to work and have the ability to be successful -- every day.

  • We are passionate. Fastly is chock full of passionate people and we’re not ‘one size fits all’. Fastly employs authors, pilots, skiers, parents (of humans and animals), makeup geeks, coffee connoisseurs, and more. We love employees for who they are and what they are passionate about.

We’re always looking for humble, sharp, and creative folks to join the Fastly team. If you think you might be a fit, please apply!
