You should be an enthusiastic about software development and want to work with the

latest technologies, solve interesting problems and be part of a really great team. There

are a wide range of problems to take on, from configuring nginx proxies to writing

custom payment routing and handling logic, and we contribute open source back to the

community. We believe that the language you write the code in is just how you convey

your solution to the computer and the real value is being able to think through a


You will be working on new development projects, focused on best-practice across the

board, including automation of absolutely everything (Terraform for infrastructure

deployments to AWS, CI/CD with contract-based testing and auto-deployment of

services within Docker containers, etc.), pair programming and TDD/BDD. Although

many of us live around London, we are operating as a remote team, and typically

working from home and pair programming.

We try to pick the right tools for the job, and these regularly change. To give you a

flavour, here are some of the technologies we are currently working with:

Skills & requirements

mind we'd like you to have professional experience with at least 2 programming

languages across multiple platforms and tools.

• Distributed architecture: You should have previous commercial experience

engineering complex distributed systems and a view on topics such as service;

discovery, integration testing, inter-process communication, how to define your

services and APIs, as well as experience with distributed data-stores.

• Public cloud: You will have worked with public cloud services (AWS, Google

Cloud etc.)

• TDD/BDD: Code quality is key, and we expect you to have worked using Test-

Driven Development (TDD) and Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD) and be

familiar with the use of testing tools such as Cucumber.

The following skills are desirable but not essential;

• Most of our code is written in Java and Go, so experience with either would be


• All our services are built and managed as docker containers, so Kubernetes, and

general docker experience is preferred.

• We like clean code, so experience with Event Sourcing/CQRS will be useful.

• We do contract-based testing, using tools such as Pact

• We work as a DevOps team, so experience in automating operations (such as

infrastructure as code, automated monitoring and alerting, build pipelines etc)

would also be useful.
