Job description
Third Light is seeking a Go Developer, either a seasoned Gopher or capable back end developer looking to cross-train to Go, to help deliver sophisticated new product features for release to our Digital Asset Management product – features that will have immediate positive impact for our global user base.

You may work remotely as your full time arrangement, joining a team that already includes remote workers.

We're a small, but expanding, software development team building an enterprise-level software application with a highly-polished UI using state-of-the art techniques. We employ an iterative, design-led process where everyone on the team gets a say. We are agile and manage our work using a gentle scrum process and encourage a lightweight, productive approach to development.

Our product is a JavaScript application loosely-coupled to a back end built on Go microservices and legacy PHP. We use microservices for all new features and Go is our chosen language to do this. We've been using Go for two years, and have built up a mature code base. In parallel we are migrating our older codebase to Go. New work will include an ambitious scripting layer, AI features, and a Dropbox style syncher.

We embrace open source and contribute back along the way. We encourage personal projects and hold regular informal 'conference days' to share experience and knowledge.

Now is a great time to join us with lots of new code to write; your opinion and expertise will be valued from day one.

*Upcoming projects*

- Implement workflow and automation microservices to realise intuitive automated channel publishing tools

- Extend image classifier daemon with face recognition tech to allow searching for individuals within the product

- Migrate file metadata handling to a new Go microservice, improving speed and responsiveness for the end user

- Automate orchestration of microservices in our product e.g. exploring Kubernetes
