Back-End Developer

  • Backend
  • Permanent
  • London, UK

What are we looking for?

As we expand our engineering team, we are looking for an experienced back-end developer who thrives in a fast-paced environment and can help us build and scale our product beyond the MVP. Currently we've built a web application, but next on our radar is to build a mobile app.

You will be one of the first hires of the company and working closely with our CTO and the co-founding team. Since we are an early-stage startup, you will have more responsibilities than in a regular role and play a large part in shaping the next features of the application.

Currently we're all working remotely, but post-covid we're looking for someone who is willing to commute to our London office once or twice a week.

Key responsibilities

  • Write high quality and well tested code for our backend platform
  • Build components and architecture for our suite of upcoming products
  • Collaborate and review code of other engineers
  • Create and present ideas and solutions for improvements to products, services and processes
  • Test products and updates before they go live

Key skills and experience

  • 1-3 years of back-end development using Golang
  • Excellent knowledge of programming best-practice, and an obsession with tidy code
  • A strong communicator, self-starter and problem solver
  • Willingness to learn new technologies

Nice to have

  • Experience with cross-platform mobile app frameworks (e.g. React Native, Flutter)
  • Experience using Docker, Kubernetes, GCP, Helm, Terraform, Postman, Gitlab CI, microservices architecture
