Job Description

Backend Engineer - NodeJS / TypeScript – High-traffic platform - Up to £65,000

Can you see yourself working on a high-traffic application that handles hundreds of thousands of transactions on a monthly basis? I’m looking for some mid-level engineers – info below:  

Who are the company?

Having been in operation for a couple of years, this software business have established themselves as true leaders within their space. They’ve approached an overcrowded market, analysed where the gaps were & built a platform that allowed users to do what they had always wanted to do.

You’ll be joining a team of five engineers, but the business overall has a headcount of 45 so whilst I’d hesitate to call them a startup, they aren’t a corporate business by any means either.

What will I be working on?

As mentioned earlier, their platform is highly data-driven and handles thousands upon thousands of transactions and other activity each day. They’re looking to hire another backend engineer due to a huge influx of new projects which you will be working on across the next two years at least!

One of these projects will see you build out an entirely new arm of the platform from scratch, which will be entirely cloud hosted. The frontend engineers in the team will work alongside you to ensure there’s a smooth user interface built but you will be responsible for scaling the product & ensuring that it always runs at an optimum.

Due to the amount of data flowing through their platform, they’re always looking for ways to innovate and improve it – whether this be converting monoliths to microservices, cloud hosting, implementing DevOps tools etc.

The technical stack you’ll be working with here includes: NodeJS, TypeScript, AWS Lambdas, Microservices, GraphQL etc.

What’s in it for me?

  • Salary up to £65,000 dependent on experience
  • 25 days holiday + public/bank holidays
  • Private healthcare
  • Gym membership
  • Paid for events
  • Remote working with monthly office days (travel paid for)

What’s the process?

  • Take home task – 60-90 mins
  • Screening call & intro to the business – 30 mins
  • Final interview with team & lead engineers – 90 mins

What do you think? Sound like the role for you? They’re looking to hire ASAP so please do get in touch or apply here if you’d like to know more!
