Backend Developer at Third Light - Cambridge, United Kingdom / Remote (UK)

Salary £40k - £50k • Company Website https://www.thirdlight.com

Job Description

Third Light is hiring a Back End Engineer —a Go developer or someone who has been mixing Go into their work or personal projects and is readynow looking for a primarily Go-based role.

You may work remotely - joining a team that already includes remote workers - or from our Cambridge office.

This is about delivering sophisticated new product features for release to our state-of-the-art software service that helps people manage and share their digital media files easily – features that deliver immediate positive impact for our global user base.

We’re a small and expanding software development team, building an enterprise application with a highly-polished UI, using the very best and latest techniques. We employ an iterative, design-led process where everyone on the team gets a say.

Our product is a single-page JavaScript application loosely-coupled to a back end that’s built on Go microservices and legacy PHP. We use microservices for all new features and Go is our chosen language to do this. In parallel we are migrating our older codebase to Go microservices.

We’re agile and manage our work using a gentle Kanban process with daily stand-ups and we encourage a lightweight, productive approach to development. We can allocate projects that build upon your current strengths, and we offer a personal development approach that you may help shape.

Your opinion and expertise will be valued from day one.

Salary and benefits

Working remotely: The Third Light development team embraced remote working a few years ago and now has workers in more than one country. We strive to provide a friendly, fun, supportive remote-working culture and we refine our processes to make remoting easier. We will welcome your ideas and contributions. We provide computing equipment and cover reasonable costs incurred from running a home office.

Normally, as a new starter, you’d come to the office for a few weeks to get to know each other. Due to Coronavirus you will no-doubt join us remotely, at least temporarily, which will bring interesting challenges in how best to introduce you to, and integrate you into, the development team—how to train you, how to help familiarise yourself with our systems and ways of working. We see this as an interesting challenge so we’re working it out at the moment. We’re planning a fully-remote ‘onboarding’ process with team meetups, one-to-one sessions and pair programming as well as online social gatherings for you when you join.

If you’d prefer to primarily work from our office this option will still be available to you after lockdown.
