About the role - What's your purpose?

  • We are looking for talented engineers to join our growing Software Engineering team of 10+ in London.
  • The team is autonomous and cross functional, encompassing every role required to build and improve on our products in the way we best see fit. We are able to decide product direction ourselves, trying out new approaches and technologies.
  • This allows us to choose whatever tools are best for the job, and our service based architecture allows multiple different technologies to work together. We currently use Clojure, JavaScript (with and without React), and are always happy to introduce new technologies if they help us solve the problem at hand. Our architecture is hosted on AWS, and we deploy multiple times a day following a “You Build It, You Run It” philosophy.
  • You will be a core player in the growth of our platform and of the products built on top of it. Areas of work will include our large scale ingestion and machine learning pipeline, increased automation of our infrastructure and new features to our products.
