About

Our tech stack is mainly Python (Flask + SQLAlchemy + Celery) along with a smattering of Go, with Redis, MySQL and S3 for data storage. The platform itself is comprised of multiple applications and services all hosted in our AWS VPC on a mixture of bare EC2, Elastic Beanstalk, AWS Lambda and (increasingly) EC2 Container Service. We have a propensity to ship early and often, so we push multiple deployments live per day through our CI/CD pipelines.

Our technical co-founders come from senior hands-on positions at Amazon, Arts Alliance Media, and Zoopla, so we have a great software engineering ethos and it's an excellent environment in which to thrive as a developer.

Benefits

£2.5k budget to buy whatever kit you need

We make sure that our developers have the tools they need to get the job done. Every new hire at tails.com is given a £2.5k budget to buy whatever kit they need to be at their best.

Personal development budget

We're passionate about hiring and developing smart people, so every developer at tails.com has a personal development budget to use for attending conferences, external training courses, books, etc.

Richmond isn't East London

We have no beard wax emporiums or cereal cafés. What we do have is a lovely river, beautiful open green spaces and proper pubs all within shouting distance of the office. Swap the bustle for some real culture.

A great office environment

A relaxed, dog-friendly office smack in the middle of Richmond, with free breakfast goodies and snacks, Bacon Butty Fridays, monthly company drinks and team events.
