Software Engineer - Golang, Rust & Kubernetes at Silico

🇬🇧 United Kingdom › London
  (Posted Oct 8 2021)

About the company
Here at Silico we are empowering leaders to make the best decisions by creating a platform for simulating possible futures and selecting for the best outcome. We are proud of the impact our technology is already having on critical decision-making.

Here are just a few examples from current customers:
Healthcare leaders are able to simulate demand on hospital services to better manage capacity in the face of unprecedented disruption due to the global pandemic.
Marketing Executives are able to move beyond past data and better understand their next best moves, including identifying how to better allocate budget across channels and activities.
Operations Directors are understanding how they can manage fluctuating demand on systems and staff, to improve customer experiences while staying on budget.

We are building the organisational brain for some of the world's largest companies, which means interfacing with analysts and data scientists as well as the C-suite. It's a huge challenge, which is why we're looking for problem solvers who aren't afraid to venture into the unknown.

You'll be joining a small team team early on in our journey, which means opportunities for rapid professional development, as well as the chance to shape our product and culture.

Do they allow remote work?
Remote work is possible, see the description below for more information.


Job description
Location: Anywhere within UK (Fully Remote). While we're not planning on an office, we do plan on meeting up for social and whiteboard time every few months, so you need a willingness to travel for these (likely to London).

As one of our first backend engineers, you'll be responsible for building out the infrastructure and services that power Silico. You'll get to work on interesting challenges, providing novel services such as on-demand parallel-computation, analysis and compilation services.

Your responsibilities will cover:
Take features and services all the way from inception through to production, including fundamental technological and architectural decisions.
Maintain and ensure the uptime of our services. Ensure observability so we can catch problems. Care deeply about security concerns so we can provide a service our users trust.
Deep thought about keeping our infrastructure maintainable and extensible, as we add new features and services.
Help make the day-to-day development experience a happy one, improving our CI/CD pipelines and help streamline our local development setup.
Use Go, TypeScript and Rust to work on existing services. Make choices on languages and technologies for future services & infrastructure.

What's the current tech stack?
Fully TypeScript frontend using Next.js/React, with additional Rust modules compiled down to WebAssembly.
Services running on GKE, serving up REST APIs with custom services in Rust, Go and TypeScript, and GraphQL using Hasura. We're keen to develop polyglot services, enabling us to always use the right tool for the job.

Who are we looking for?
People looking for a true challenge, not just another CRUD application. You'll be expected to be comfortable both designing and building the features you're working on.
You should be keen to learn new things, and act as a maintainability champion for our infrastructure. Nobody wants a late-night notification!
Someone to champion our adoption of Kubernetes, ideally with some existing hands-on experience. We're keen on pragmatic use, enabling reliable and repeatable deployments for everyone, without being infrastructure-astronauts.
A focus on quality, but with the pragmatism to deliver and improve later.
Someone looking for autonomy and responsibility in equal measure, and real product impact.

Compensation: Typical £60k-£80k + monthly WFH allowance (e.g. peripherals, desks, coffee).
Choice of windows/mac/linux laptop provided.
Location: Anywhere within UK (Fully Remote). While we're not planning on an office, we do plan on meeting up for social and whiteboard time every few months, so you need a willingness to travel for these (likely to London).
