Lead Developer
Organise
London, United Kingdom / Remote (Europe)
£72,000 to £90,000 a year
June 2021
1 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!

  • 💰 Competitive salary: Our salary formula adjusts to your cost of living and experience. For this role, the range is: £72,000 - £90,000 GBP in the UK // $101,000 - $127,000 in the US. We use a transparent salary formula based on experience + you'll get substantial stock options as part of our EMI scheme.

  • 😍 Benefits: 38 days holiday per year (including Bank Holidays), Flexible working hours, Childcare benefits/vouchers, forward thinking parental leave policy, menstrual and menopause policy, discounted gym membership, time off in lieu policy, team lunches and activities. Please note, these will keep evolving as we continue to grow!

We recently raised $53M in Series C funding to bring forward the next generation of tooling for a more accessible web. This round was led by the EQT Ventures with participation from existing investors Andreessen Horowitz & Kleiner Perkins. This brings Netlify’s funding raised in total to $97M to date. Other past investors include Bloomberg Beta, Designer Fund, and Tank Hill Ventures, as well as the founders of Figma, GitHub, Slack and Yelp.

Netlify is a diverse group of incredible talent from all over the world. We’re ~44% woman or non-binary, and are composed of about half as many nationalities as we are team members.

About the Opportunity:

At Netlify, we’re building a system that supports millions of customer sites, processing over a petabyte of data. Over 10% of Internet users visit at least one site hosted by Netlify every 30 days. With our team, we truly empower our engineers through an autonomous pod-based model that allows our teams to own various stages of the customer journey. We’ve been remote-first since our inception and are globally distributed, spanning across North America, Europe, and Africa. We’re biased towards asynchronous planning and communication, meaning less meetings and more execution. We take documentation seriously and place our values of transparency, empowerment, and commitment at the forefront of everything we do. We’re driven by passion and we make sure that everyone on the team knows their value, feels ownership over their work, and can quickly see the impact of their efforts. Beyond just hiring smart, empathetic team members, we foster a culture where there are no dumb questions and our team can get access to the resources that they need to continue to learn.

If you're excited about working with Go, Kafka, and Clickhouse, among other technologies, you'll have plenty of opportunities to do so with our team. The team ships changes several times a day, so you’ll quickly see the impact of your work.

With our Runtime & Integrated Apps team, your mission is to design and implement fault-tolerant distributed systems and create the supporting features that they leverage. You’ll be working across a variety of technologies to solve problems around the massive traffic that we receive on the platform, so if you're excited about working in complex Go or Rust code, you'll have plenty of opportunities to do so with our team! The platform is at the core of Netlify, where you'll be developing software that powers the lifecycle of a web request, enables developers to interact with the edge, and strives for better availability and higher throughput.

The platform is built on top of 6 different cloud providers and is truly global, supporting constant traffic from all over the world. We move quickly and adjust to changing priorities and conditions, and you'll be able to help us focus on key priorities and pragmatic solutions.

  • Tackle your first ticket by committing changes & helping perform code reviews with the team.

Within 3 months, you'll:

  • Establish strong async communication rhythms with your peers and leaders, practicing transparency and visibility in your progress against areas of focus

  • Gain a more robust understanding of the needs of the product and become more comfortable with diagnosing problems
  • Deliver on your first project and help teams iterate on meaningful customer outcomes

  • Make a significant impact to our team by designing an extensive scalable solution to accommodate our rapidly growing user base

  • Develop automated abuse prevention tooling and building cutting edge features to empower developers

  • Fortify relationships with cross functional team members as well as broaden your connections across the organization

  • Refactoring the way that we serve content. This involve a complex interaction between multiple services that are getting a constant load with the goal of distributing more knowledge onto the edge

  • Innovating on our functions product, adding more capabilities, better observability, and handling questions of how to scale the offering (we have 1 million+ functions deployed now)

  • Increasing our developer velocity by partnering with other teams to improve how we update our edge software, without incurring any customer impacts

  • Expanding on our analytics product. This involves dealing with high cardinality data that is constantly streaming into the system via Kafka. Finding an efficient way to store and search the data to drive customer insights.

Within 12 months, you'll:

  • Have significant ownership over making extensive contributions to a large scale system that delivers insights about traffic, function invocations, and other edge visibility issues.
  • Fully revamped & iterated on the way our edge logic works and how it resolves content.

  • Extensively collaborate with engineering leadership to level up the team and continually improve the scalability and observability of the platform.
  • Start to coach and mentor other team members within Netlify's engineering teams

At Netlify, we are a growing company that is constantly evolving so this timeline is intended to show you an example of what you can expect from the role.

Job description

Location: Remote or Amsterdam, NL(Visa sponsorship available)

Will you join us on a journey to disrupt the trillion-dollar travel industry? We are looking for the best and brightest who share our passion for travellers, data, and product.

FindHotel believes travel is the one thing that really opens minds to new ideas, cultures, and ways of thinking. Our mission is to get every traveller in the world the best accommodation deal. From adventure travel and backpacking to honeymoons and family vacations, we deeply care so that every traveller can make the best-informed accommodation choice at the absolute best conditions for every trip.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated Back-End Engineer to help build the most scalable and flexible APIs in the industry. You will be joining FindHotel’s Marketplace Platform Tribe. You will be working with other squads across tribes and closely interact and actively collaborate with the Software Engineers, Data Analysts, Data Scientist, and PO in the team.

We are working with a modern stack consisting of Go, Redis, AWS (ElastiCache, ECS, S3, Batch), Snowflake, and more. We process thousands of requests per second and integrate with many suppliers and other partners. The products developed by the Offers team are a core part of FindHotel’s platform allowing us to offer the best possible comparison and offers to every traveller, worldwide. Hence, anything that you will develop and ship on production will have an immediate effect on our users and on our business performance. We work in a flexible, results-oriented and customer-centric team structure, focussed on shipping value in a collaborative fashion, with hopefully just the right amount of bureaucracy.

What you will actually be doing / responsibilities

Work in a team to solve challenging problems, and design and develop products that will help to bring to our travellers the best deals available in the market. Identify bottlenecks and opportunities for improvements in terms of performance, reliability, and code quality. Integrate and improve (new) provider integrations. Help to maintain and improve our infrastructure and scale it to support our continuous growth in a cost-effective way.

What a day in the office might look like

In the morning, you and your fellow engineers have a refinement session with the PO to discuss the upcoming features on the roadmap. You carefully consider the impact of the new feature on the entire product and raise questions and make suggestions of what is the most pragmatic approach to balance the technical excellence with the time to market. You are part of a discussion that builds on top of each other suggestions, ideas and comments. Today you have chosen to come to the office and after lunch you play table tennis or pool or go for a walk with colleagues in the city centre. In the afternoon, you enter a deep work period and finish working on improving a core component in the rates and availability API. Once down with that work you jump on a zoom call with the rest of the team to discuss the challenges and next steps with the PoC the team is building in this sprint. Throughout the day you monitor the product operations using DataDog.

Who we are looking for / requirements

  • You hold a BSc or MSc in Computer Science or related field
  • You have a proven track record of designing, developing and shipping highly scalable software
  • You have a proven track record working in a fast-paced agile environment
  • You have strong experience with at least two programming languages such as GoLang, C#, Java
  • Experience with GoLang is a plus
  • You have experience with caching and setting up data pipelines.
  • Experience working with data analysts and data scientist on analyzing data and identifying improvements is a plus
  • You have experience with distributed systems
  • You have experience with AWS, Terraform, and CI/CD tools.
  • You have a sense of pragmatism, constantly finding the right balance between achieving technical excellence and delivering value to the end-users.
  • You are flexible, curious, and independent, with a strong sense of ownership
  • You treat documentation as a first-class citizen.
  • You have excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • You have a can-do and can-learn attitude

Why join now?

  • This year we will be helping +2M customers around the world find better hotel deals, using data, transparency & industry-leading features
  • We are in fast growth mode and have been growing bookings by +100% YOY for the past 2 years and still growing in 2020 despite the pandemic
  • Completing our mission means building an efficient tool users love. Doing that in a market as large and as competitive as online accommodation is a rare opportunity to make an impact in the online world.

Is FindHotel is the right place for you? Find out by reading our CEO's blog post

What we offer:

  • Plenty of chances to learn and grow – you’ll be surrounded by some of the brightest minds in the city, be part of a culture which values sharing knowledge every day and has a budget to attend conferences and develop yourself.
  • A profitable company with fast growth and a great scale opportunity.
  • A competitive compensation package + perks and benefits (including Stock Appreciation Rights).
  • Flexible time off (take as many holidays as you need) and a chance to work remotely - we measure results, not time spent in the office.
  • You will be part of a highly international team in a fun work environment.
  • We value good food and offer catered lunches from various cuisines, great coffee, ice-cream in the fridge and the occasional bbq in our garden

HousingAnywhere
Rotterdam, Netherlands
€45,000 to €65,000 a year
October 2019
5 Applicants This Week

Job Description

Our Vision 🌏🏡

To help people with housing, anywhere.

Our Mission 💻✨

Building a safe, efficient and global rental marketplace for anyone looking for or renting out a place.

Our Core Values 💛

We Care. We Perform. We Evolve.

Your Impact 💥

As we have reached the scaleup phase at HousingAnywhere, our rapid growth has brought on new challenges. We are rethinking the platform architecture to meet imminent growth needs. You will have the opportunities to bring in your ideas in the context of microservices, stream processing, API, security and data integrity.

At platform we are shaping the vision for the future architecture of HousingAnywhere. You will help other teams to build new features on top of our architecture, and make sure that concerns like reliability, security, privacy and performances are met.

We are pragmatic developers, and often we need to think out of the box to solve tricky technical challenges. Technology hypes inspire our work and give us ideas, but we realize that the context in which we build our solutions is what matters most. You will help us consider the challenges we face when adopting new technologies or techniques.

You will help your colleagues and your leaders to solve problems and move faster, as well as they will do with you.

Our mission as the platform team

As a Software Engineer for the Platform Team, you will be joining the team responsible for the backend logic of HousingAnywhere’s marketplace, and for standardizing the way our partners integrate with our platform.

Our team is here to provide HousingAnywhere with a scalable composable architecture that allows the organization to scale the business and teams on top of it.

We achieve our goals by:

  • developing the technical vision and standards on the platform that accommodate the needs of the housing rental market for the next 10 years
  • developing the standards for the exchange of information between systems in the accommodation rental market.

Let's work together on the following

  • We are currently refactoring the monolith in context boundaries using Domain Driven Design techniques. Our goal is to come to an architecture that will allow us to break the monolith in microservices and break dependencies with the database.
  • We are working on bootstrapping our journey to let partners integrate with our platform. We are defining and implementing the architecture that can integrate seamlessly the variegated technologies the industry uses.
  • We are rethinking our approach to CI, and simplifying our suites of tests.
  • We already extracted frontend as a service from the backend monolith, but the code still leaves in one repository. We want to gain independence by extracting backend code from frontend code and have separate deployment pipelines.
  • We are working closely with the operations team to move our services to kubernetes. We are currently sending a small percentage of traffic to the cluster and are facing some performance issues. We are investigating possible next moves to fully work on the cluster.
  • We are creating an internal RFC to plan how to move towards an event driven architecture by introducing Kafka. We are researching impacts, costs and value that we get by getting into such a path.

And our stack?

  • Go
  • Postgres
  • Redis
  • NSQ
  • Docker
  • Kubernetes
  • Github
  • Google Cloud Platform
  • GRPC/Protobuf

Who you are

  • A product-oriented person: you love developing products that help people and you’re driven by the impact you can make.
  • A problem solver: you structure your thoughts and you propose your ideas towards solving a problem or creating an opportunity.
  • An advocate of clean,simple and pragmatic solutions. You always have intention, adaptability and scalability in mind.
  • A real team player: You respect the work of all your colleagues no matter their seniority level. You also understand that making mistakes is part of the job and that the important thing is to learn from these mistakes. You are always keen to help others, but you are also not afraid of asking for help yourself.
  • A great communicator. We don’t expect you to be a master story teller(although we do love stories), but we expect you to communicate your expectations clearly with all your stakeholders.
  • A tech junkie! You are interested in new technologies and you constantly seek to improve personally, whether that is at work or in your spare time.

What we offer:

🚀Get ready to make a real impact and hit the ground running with early responsibilities. You have the opportunity to take full ownership of your work and dare to do things differently. Here, all ideas matter.

👩🏻👨🏾👦🏼👽 Work with a crazy unconventional team! Think 90 people from 30 different nationalities. It’s like being on a round-the-world trip while you’re in the office.

📈 Trainings, workshops, conferences, books. It’s up to you.

📚 Budget for Dutch or English classes to help you kick off your stay in the Netherlands, and help you immerse into the Dutch culture.

🌇 Work in the heart of Rotterdam in an office with an amazing view! If you're looking for a city that is always packed with new things to discover, amazing architecture, a strong international community, this is the perfect place for you!

👕We don’t care about what you wear. You’re welcome to wear a 3-piece tuxedo or even a dragon onesie, we won’t judge you. Maybe a little.

🍻 Beers & Cheers! Get to know your colleagues over drinks while we celebrate our achievements every Friday.

✈️Are you coming from abroad? No worries, we’ve got you covered!

Practicalities

  • Full-time position (40 hours a week) w/ schedule flexibility
  • You will work from our HQ in Rotterdam, the Netherlands
  • Relocation/work permit support provided

HousingAnywhere.com is active in 50+ countries and 400+ cities. We are partners with 160+ universities worldwide and currently target the international students and young professionals market. We are expanding to other audiences as well.

In 2017, we were awarded 4th most innovative company in the Netherlands and the 1st most innovative company in Rotterdam by the Dutch Chamber of Commerce.

In 2018, we have been honored by being the fastest growing propTech company in the Netherlands as part of the Technology Fast 50 ranking of Deloitte.

The team

Our engineering team consists of a group of 30 people (product leads, engineering leads, architects, product owners, front-end engineers, back-end engineers, QA engineers and UX/UI designers), all passionate about our expertise.

Within the engineering team, we are organized in multiple cross-functional teams. By applying for this role, you will have the chance to become part of the Platform team.

We, the Platform team, are responsible for the core application of HousingAnywhere and are the team where it all started for HousingAnywhere. Here you’ll find those we call the “dinosaurs” of HousingAnywhere. Djordy, our CEO, started our team back when he was Head of Product.

We have ownership of listing management (listing creation, calendar management and listing representation) and also of chat and bookings functionalities. Down the line, everything we do should add to conversions and should help HousingAnywhere grow to be the number 1 market place for students and young professionals in the world.

Our mission as a team is to provide high-quality matching between tenants and landlords and to drive trust between the users of the marketplace. We think about these challenges every day in order to build a world-class product. If this sounds interesting to you, don't hesitate to read on.

About your role and impact in the platform team

HousingAnywhere has entered a scale-up phase in which we have seen impressive growth in terms of bookings and liquidity in the marketplace. This growth has brought us many technical challenges.

Some of the challenges we are tackling:

On the frontend side:

Consolidate our React based frontend with tests and consistent design Provide users with a more fulfilling mobile experience through PWA technologies and principles Integrate real-time technology to deliver content to users quickly Continuously improve SEO through performance and content delivery

On the backend side:

Pragmatically redesigning the core system to identify services and run them outside the main monolith Moving the core platform to Kubernetes and continuous deployment Rethinking the way we represent and store data to allow easier integrations through events and denormalization Monitoring and improving the performance of our private API. Your role in the team is to contribute to solving these challenges by implementing solutions and assisting our team so that our innovative technology can support future business needs.

As a Senior Software Engineer we expect you to mentor our less senior team members and to work closely with our team lead and PO to help them solve technical challenges they face.

We also expect you to challenge our choices and practices by bringing your opinion in the mix, because only by rethinking our best practices we can really evolve as people and as a company.

Our stack

In frontend we are React lovers. We use Redux, CSS-in-JS, TypeScript, NodeJS and all tools related to this stack. Our backend is powered by Golang backed with a Postgres database. We’re currently moving our backend to a service-oriented architecture (microservices). Our main infrastructure is in Google Cloud Platform. We've been using React, GraphQL and Golang in production environments since the early days. Since a few years we’ve started using Kubernetes and nowadays all our new services run in the cluster.

What we are looking for in a Senior Engineer:

  • A product-oriented person: you love developing products that help people
  • You take responsibility for the quality of your work, you like test automation and you are interested in TDD best practices
  • You're a real team player. You understand your colleagues may have different opinions and you consider them to make our product better.
  • Someone who is pragmatic
  • Ability to find a clean and simple solution that could be easily adapted and scaled as the business evolves
  • Leadership capabilities
  • Interest in new technologies
  • You understand that maintainable code is simple code that makes intentions explicit

Experience needed:

  • Excellent skills in one of Javascript, Golang, C++ or any other of the main languages

  • Experience with online marketplaces, service providers and/or API development
  • Solid understanding of web user interface design and web development
  • Have 10 years of experience in web development. If you think you can do the job with fewer years experience, don’t hesitate to apply as well.

What we offer:

  • Friday drinks
  • Flat organization structure
  • Being part of a company that is scaling up with millions of monthly visits, and thousands of paying customers
  • A career ladder: a structured way to take control of your career and your growth within HousingAnywhere
