Your expertise will help to develop our cloud products as well as the infrastructure and deployment tools used for hosting the products. Your work will impact thousands of users around the world, ranging from people in tiny start ups to global enterprises. You will be a part of a small, dynamic team, where we follow agile principles. In practice this means for example incremental improvements and daily releases.

An important part of the work is ensuring the availability and scalability of the service. We have hundreds of companies using our product daily - on a monthly basis we serve over 100M requests.

We put a lot of focus on quality and we take pride in things we ship out to customers. We work with realistic goals and don’t rush releases out the door. We aim to do things well.

What you’ll need to succeed in this role

  • Experience of deploying production systems to AWS
  • Experience with the following AWS services: CodeBuild, CodePipeline, ECS, Fargate, RDS, IAM
  • Experience from back end developmentusing Node.js, Python or a similar language
  • Ability to optimise, troubleshoot and design data structures for relational databases
  • Shell scripting
  • Curious and eager to learn new things and develop yourself professionally

Why should you join us?

We have an amazing team and great clients, but all of this is possible because of a couple of values we have and share. If these words resonate with you, we are pretty sure that you would love to work with us.

Flexibility: We believe work should fit into the rest of your life and not the other way around.

Fun: We celebrate our successes and host tons of other events like quiz and game nights, table tennis tournaments, theme days, and more.

Inclusion: We have a track record of hiring and promoting the most qualified candidates, regardless of factors like nationality, race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion, which, if you ask us, have no bearing on one’s ability to do the job.

Growth: Our employees grow as we grow. We promote from within, and we’re committed to professional development so you leave us with more knowledge than you came with (but don’t leave us!). 

We are good corporate citizens. We’re incredibly proud of the gender balance in our tech team, not to mention our pledge to donate 1% of company profits to charities and nonprofits like Ol Pejeta Conservancy and Cool Earth.
