Job description

We are continuing to scale at pace and are looking for senior backend-specialist engineers with a broad skillset to join us on our journey.

Our target architecture for new development is a cloud-native, functional, microservice architecture based around Kotlin and http4k on the backend and React/Typescript on the frontend. Our teams are autonomous, cross-functional, full-stack, full-cycle, end to end delivery squads of 5-10 software engineers alongside product management, design, and analytics. Our focus on teamwork and quality, with a product-minded and test-driven approach, enables us to go far together. We measure ourselves on value delivered and operational excellence, not the number of features implemented.

  • Ability to apply object-oriented and functional design principles and write clean, well-structured code.¬†
  • Knowledge of different database and state persistence options including RDBMSs and caches.¬†
  • Understanding of what makes a well-designed cloud-native microservice, including frameworks used and service responsibilities.¬†
  • Experience building scalable, performant, and reliable distributed systems using a microservices-based architecture.¬†
  • Experience applying agile and lean principles.¬†
  • Ability to learn new skills to work across the entirety of our tech stack.¬†

The following skills would be advantageous 

  • Experience migrating from a monolithic architecture to microservices¬†
  • Experience working with React/Angular/Vue or Node.js applications¬†¬†
  • Experience defining Service Level Objectives and keeping within error budget¬†
