bringing Go people to Go jobs

Existing experience with Go is not essential for this role

Working autonomously.

It's a term that can be looked upon as either a blessing or a curse - it really depends on the individual.

For example, some software engineers like to work as part of a big collective, striving to solve problems as a united force to be reckoned with. Nothing wrong with that.

Others prefer to wrestle with technical challenges in relative solitude.

They might even argue that to take on a more 'wall to wall' problem can make you a more rounded developer.

The latter is the mentality of a London based company, who despite their small tech team, manage to pack a big punch.

They’re looking to hire an experienced software engineer with knowledge of distributed systems, serverless & microservices to take ownership over a set of ongoing mini-projects within the business.

Go / Golang is their weapon of choice alongside:

  • GCP
  • gRPC
  • Kubernetes
  • Postgres

They're easy when it comes to specific tech experience. In the absence of existing commercial Go experience, they’d love to see applications those experienced in:

  • Java
  • Python
  • C++
  • Scala
  • Ruby

And Polyglots of course.

It’s a varied position, allowing you the chance to get stuck into a good range of things:

  • IoT (and lots of it – if you already tinker with Raspberry Pi, perfect)
  • Improving both availability & scalability of their on premise software
  • Further building out their technical architecture

They also have flexible working on offer, plus you can work in any of their 6 spaces in London.

In a nutshell; this is a great chance to work with freedom when building software.

You'll see the fruits of your technical labours first hand & you'll be able to measure your own success simply by having a conversation with those around you.

I appreciate that sounds a bit mysterious. With a bit more detail about the job, I promise it makes sense.

Benefits:

  • Work from home opportunities
  • Flexible working hours
  • Bonus scheme
  • Private medical/dental insurance
  • Casual dress
  • 25 days holiday (plus 8 bank holidays)
