Guide the development, deployment, and maintenance of small, focused services within a distributed architecture
Advocate for quality code, durability, and technical debt reduction, working directly with Product Managers, Engineering Managers, and others
Revamp services which have outlasted their original implementations, through refactoring, migration, and rethinking of architectural design
Multiply the effectiveness of our engineers and engineering systems with processes that allow us to ship quicker, fail faster, and isolate the blast radius of changes


You have:
A curious, passionate, and growth-oriented mindset about technology
Led impactful engineering projects at a non-trivial scale
A desire to teach, improve, and multiply the strengths of engineers around you
Experience working with one or more of: Ruby, Golang, Elixir/Erlang
Experience with micro-service based architecture
5+ years experience contributing to and leading engineering projects

Bonus points for:

Experience building and deploying to cloud infrastructure

Some of our technology:

Why you should join SumUp:
Be part of a welcoming community of more than 2,000 people from over 52 nationalities
Startup environment and small, cross-functional teams
Equity allocation (Virtual Shares Program)
50% employer-paid Medical, Dental, Vision Insurance and company-paid life insurance
Employer paid long-term disability
401K Retirement Plan (up to 3.5% employer matching when you elect to contribute up to 6%)
Over 30 days of paid vacation and holidays available upon hire
100% paid parental leave (up to 8 weeks)
Ongoing access to professional development tools, job training, and industry conferences
Free on-site refreshments, snacks, and drinks
Fun company outings, team events, birthday lunches, yoga, happy hours, hikes, etc.

SumUp encourages you to apply even if you don’t meet all requirements for the position. SumUp believes in supporting candidates and employees throughout their career journey so we encourage you to apply. SumUp is committed to a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace.

SumUp is committed to fair and equitable compensation practices. The salary range for this position in Boulder, CO is $130,000 to $150,000. Compensation will be finalized by candidate’s relevant work experience, skills, certifications and geographic location.

We're currently employing a hybrid model for remote work, with most engineers come in to the office 1-2 days a week (since we're all currently in Colorado). We're happy to consider fully remote candidates, but we'll also provide generous relocation assistance to move to Colorado if possible for you.
