Job description
Your challenges:

- Run, maintain and design new microservices that live inside a big Golang monorepo

- Work on a high performance system that equally uses RPC and an event-bus paradigm to serve thousands of concurrent requests

- Interact with our Google Cloud Platform infrastructure that re-uses a huge part of the Google ecosystem: e.g. BigQuery, Pub/Sub, AppEngine, Kubernetes

- Switch confidently between in-memory storage (redis), traditional RDBMS systems (mysql) and columnar storage systems (Datastore/Bigtable)

- Work in a collaborative environment, finding solutions to business challenges with team members from a variety of disciplines like Data Science, Business Intelligence or Product.

- Own and move a project ahead in its full lifecycle: design, implementation, testing and deployment.

What we offer

- Your technical chops will directly impact today’s debates in the most relevant media outlets

- We have a diverse and open culture from different professional and personal backgrounds.

- Our agile team provides the space to directly influence and impact our product positively without having to traverse a complex spider web of hierarchies.

- Growth and continuous learning: everyone at Opinary is encouraged to trust in experiments and personally grow - a generous learning budget underpins this.

- We provide a flexible working environment – choose your working hours, holidays and preferred laptop.

Skills & requirements
Your profile:

- You have great practical knowledge of Golang and at least one other programming language

- You have significant experience working on high performance distributed systems - with a story or two to share about that process

- You understand the strengths and differences when choosing a database technology (SQL or NoSQL)

- You know how to measure the performance via tracing, profiling and monitoring tools

- You value coding as your craft and understand that writing software is about solving technical problems - but equally important something to be maintained and understood by your peers

- You’re proactive and curious: always eager to learn new things and happy to share your knowledge with others
