Job Description

A front-running start-up, is seeking an experienced and hands on API and Microservices Backend Engineer to join their remote team in revolutionising the world of data management.

They can no longer trust institutions with their Personal Information.

Google, Facebook, TalkTalk, Cambridge Analytica… the list goes on and on and is getting bigger every day, thus exposing more information, and putting more individuals at risk.

So, they decided to build a company to challenge current thinking and reinvent Personal Information management. The company aims to provide a safe and secure way for people to store and share their Personal Information and they need your help in bringing the dream to reality.

They're all about empowering the individual and letting them own their information. Likewise, they want to empower, trust, and give you the freedom and autonomy to help you create something amazing. This is their culture. They make mistakes, but learn from them and get the job done.

About you:

You'll have hands-on experience in service design and development (SOA, Microservices) and in using mainstream cloud computing platform(s) AWS / GCP / Azure. You are concerned about security, performance, and financial aspects of cloud solutions.

You'll have a solid understanding of coding best practices, design patterns of backend server-side API's and in the development and life cycle of microservices.

You'll be comfortable working in an Agile environment and take pleasure from clear code, consider automated tests a must and hold yourself, and your team, to high coding standards (Clean Code, TDD).

You'll be a pragmatic problem solver and team player who is keen to lead explorations into new technologies (Blockchain) and yet experienced enough to know and advise when a different choice of technology would be more suitable.

Above all else you'll want the chance to prove yourself, directly influence how to do things better and be an intrinsic part of something bigger.

Why choose them?

You'll get to pick the stack, design, and own your implementation and see it through to the production while helping to build the team.

You'll get to work flexibly (if you get your best work done in the middle of the night - no problem), remotely (if you'd like) and with cutting-edge technologies.

They really do want the best people to join the team and offer a competitive salary, employee share options, and a great work / life balance to help attract the best.

You'll be joining an experienced and skilled team of fellow developers and will be given the time and space to develop your existing skills, and learn new ones, in a fast, energetic, and enthusiastic startup environment.

So, if you're a passionate developer who can design and code in your sleep and are concerned about data privacy, love decentralised technologies, and you are looking to be an intrinsic part of a fantastic team behind a visionary idea, then please send your CV by clicking APPLY for immediate consideration.

Candidates with previous experience in and job titles including: Back End Developer, Senior Back End Developer, Back End Web Developer, Backend Web Developer, AWS, GCP, Azure, may be considered.
