Job description
At Longshot Systems Ltd we’re building advanced platforms for sports analytics in the betting sector.

We are a small, start up company working in a rewarding and difficult industry. You, along with our small team of developers, would be responsible for designing, developing, maintaining and supporting new systems to meet our clients’ needs.

Our client activity is increasing exponentially so there are many scaling issues, technology challenges and general problems for you to get to grips with. This is a really exciting time for the company and the role will suit a hard-working person with a flair for creative problem-solving.

Our core systems handle thousands of trading signals per second, all of which must be processed and potentially acted upon with minimal latency. We have similar problems and constraints to high frequency trading shops, but in the sports betting world.

We have an office dog, Minos. He's a beagle and rather cheeky. He really likes his tennis ball. We can send you a pic if you need it to help in your decision making process.

We've got a pretty relaxed atmosphere here with team lunches / after work drinks a regular occurrence. Our customary office hours are week days, 10 til 6. We don't much like peak rush hour. If that doesn't suit, let us know and we can talk, we're flexible.

Skills & requirements
Technologies used:

Golang for core systems

Java for core systems

RabbitMQ for underlying communications

PostgreSQL for audit, analysis, trading safety

NodeJs+html+css for reporting, consoles, ad hoc guy work

You do not need to be proficient in all technologies listed, but experience in Go or another general systems language to a high professional standard is required in addition to broad exposure to modern application architectures built around databases and messaging systems. This means you should have experience in distributed systems, web technologies, test frameworks, continuous integration and also monitoring and debugging of highly available components. Most new core system work will be undertaken in Go. Ideally, you will be an experienced systems developer who has worked in a few languages over the years.

We encourage you to apply even if you think you may not currently fit all of these requirements – so long as you are willing to work hard and learn, we want to hear from you.

Instructions how to apply
