Us

At Index Labs we are redefining the boundaries between investment and gambling. Our product, Football Index, allows players to have a stock exchange experience which is safer and more predictable than financial markets, all while having fun!

We’re a profitable and financially solid business with a strong product attracting hundreds of thousands of users in the UK, now looking to expand internationally while improving the scalability of our platform.

You would be joining and contributing to a passionate, driven and extremely technically capable team who takes great pride in what we deliver.

We’re big fans of Test-Driven Development, Pair Programming, Work on Trunk, Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment, and Domain-Driven Design; the more you embrace the merrier. We believe in metrics and that they make good business great.

You

We believe that DevOps is not about the role but about the culture. Your approach to solutions involves a lot of collaboration; you understand that the team is greater than the sum of its parts. You are able to positively challenge your fellow team members and understand how to foster the levels of trust that make these interactions rewarding for everyone involved.

You have an insatiable curiosity - always learning and asking questions to understand why we are doing what we're doing, and the tenacity to get to the root of things. You prefer to approach challenges in a calm, methodical manner, and can explain your thinking and solutions with clarity.

You enjoy automating processes and embrace best practices. This role is a fantastic opportunity to bring fresh ideas to the team and to help raise the bar - one of the responsibilities of the role is to influence and encourage those around you to be the best they can be.

You are someone with strong Kubernetes experience and have in depth AWS knowledge.

You have an opinion about development efforts and can actively participate in architecture discussions.

You are passionate about development as much as about infrastructure.

You are passionate about new technologies but understand that the best ones are those which move the business forward.

Some of the technologies we use in our company:

  • Our build pipelines run on GitLab CI

  • We believe in immutable infrastructure and use packer, terraform, terragrunt, docker and Kubernetes

  • We use Prometheus for metrics, Grafana for their visualization

  • AWS is our primary cloud provider, but we also have a presence in GCP; our belief is that cloud should be the boring part of the infrastructure

  • We use AWS Aurora (MySQL and Postgres) for databases, but we also have Elasticsearch, MongoDB, and Redis clusters

  • Our platform uses GitOps approach (ArgoCD),

  • Our next generation platform infrastructure as code modules run Pulumi, and we use Kafka as a backbone of our event-driven platform.

  • Most of our services are written in Kotlin, Java and Node.js

Culture

We foster an environment of high-quality engineering, collaboration, growth, and learning while having an active and fun social culture.

At Index Labs we strive to focus on getting things done, letting you perform to your best ability while learning new things. We value communication, creativity and excellence, and have a strong feedback culture.

We are evolving, so tomorrow might not look much like today, and we know great engineers come from different backgrounds.
