METHODOLOGY

We're organised into agile, product focussed, cross-functional teams that are empowered to define their own work and decide how to organise themselves.

Requirements

YOUR ATTITUDE

You're someone who's smart, organised, motivated and gets things done. You want to work in a startup environment, because you like the idea of doing a bit of everything and taking ownership of what you work on. You have ideas about everything, and you're not afraid to argue your point (while respecting everyone else's of course). You're constantly thinking "how can we do this better?".

You're passionate about:

  • creating robust, flexible and performant infrastructure using the latest technology and best practices
  • making the development workflow as smooth and efficient as possible through automation and tooling
  • creating and managing effective continuous integration & delivery/deployment processes
  • being an integral part of the development process, not just a system administrator, and working in a collaborative technical team

YOUR SKILL SET

  • Programming skills, preferably in Python
  • Experience with Docker based systems
  • An understanding of CI/CD workflows and tools
  • Experience in provisioning, operating and managing all things AWS (we make use of ELB, EC2, ECS and ECR, RDS, Redshift, CloudFormation and many more...)
  • GNU/Linux system administration and networking
  • Git
  • Experience with configuration management and IaC (ideally CloudFormation)
  • Experience with monitoring and logging tools
  • An excellent understanding of high availability, load balancing and service discovery concepts and technologies
  • A computing or software engineering degree. In the absence of one we expect you to show that you've taken steps to fill this gap in your training/knowledge.

  • Relational databases
  • Django
  • React
  • Node
  • Celery
  • ChatOps
  • E-commerce websites
