Job Description

The Company
A mature start-up with an established team and client base is continuing to grow after branching out into a newer and more niche space. The mission is simple, to make the ever-changing world work for the people in it. They help users improve their personal circumstances whilst adding value to causes that the individual user believes in. With over 200 people employed globally and offices across Europe, they’re expanding and need talented Software Engineers to help them do it. They’re a progressive company with HUGE plans for growth in 2021 so now is the perfect time to get on-board and be a part of something that’s helping people to help people.
The Role
The Tech Teams are split across the European offices, with a quirky and unique space in London where you will need to join the team once or twice a week (once it’s safe to of course). They have existing platforms which are doing what they need to be doing, but they’re building out brand new scalable Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence platforms to manage the new offerings (both B2B and B2C) – this is where you come in. They’re looking for Engineers of all levels to help with this so whether you’re a Grad, Mid-Weight or Senior-Lead Golang Engineer this could be the role for you.
The team is split into squads, each containing Backend Engineers, Frontend Engineers and the rest. This is a purely backend role, although some exposure to JavaScript frameworks would be a bonus point (just for comms with the team).
In a nutshell:
  • You’ll be involved in the whole SDLC for the backend services
  • You’ll work on the back-end APIs
  • You’ll need to be product minded; you’ll work closely with the wider product team to establish how you can best deliver value.
The Skills
All of the backend is written in Golang so you’ll need to have a keen interest in working with Go. For the more Senior Engineers coming into the team, you’ll need some solid experience with Golang.
  • Golang (any level)
  • Some exposure to Python would be nice
  • A background in Computer Science
  • Experience working with Cloud platforms
The Package
The salary on offer depends on your experience but thy can offer generous 6 figure salaries for the right person! You’ll only need to go into the office once a week and will also get 30 days annual leave plus a generous benefits package.
