The Opportunity:

We are seeking a dedicated, self-motivated new team member for one of our core Platform engineering teams. You’ll be working on infrastructure key to the company, enabling secure and scalable products across the world. We design, develop, test, deploy and own all our code; we build it, we own it.

What You’ll Bring:

  • Desire to do it all; design, build, test, deploy and own.
  • Be creative; we build shared service and infrastructure.
  • Be collaborative; work with teams across the globe as well as with your team-mates.

What’s in it for You?

  • Be challenged.

  • Contribute to the all parts of the microservice architecture from design to deployment.
  • Be both Student and Teacher to everyone you work with in a culture that focuses on intellectual curiosity and development.
  • Be supported and encouraged to develop technical skills that interest you and to experiment. There are plenty of opportunities to work on stuff outside of your remit.
  • Build brand new features from the ground up that are core to the business.
