Senior GO Backend Engineer (FULLY remote, Â£90K-Â£110k)
United Kingdom - remote
to £110K per Year
Role: Senior GO Backend Engineer
Salary: £90,000 - £115,000 DOE
Location: Fully remote
We’re looking for a Senior Go Backend Engineer to join a small backend team. You’ll be critical to building the user-facing products, as well as the behind-the-scenes systems required for us to offer these products.
The backend stack consists of Go and Node.js / TypeScript services, communicating using gRPC. This all culminates in a GraphQL API that is used by our mobile app. We use Kubernetes with the Google Cloud Platform, including its Firestore & Datastore databases, BigQuery, Pub/Sub and more.
For this role you’ll be expected to primarily write Go code, as well as occasionally contribute to their TypeScript based services. You shouldn’t be averse to interacting with Kubernetes or Google Cloud Platform either if that’s what’s needed to ship.
Prior experience building and maintaining cloud native, microservice-based products is a necessity.
Collaboration, within the engineering team and across the organization, is critical for our success.
Experience with software development platforms like GitHub is a must.
The responsibilities for this position include:
- Programming (yay!)
- Helping colleagues, for instance through the code review process
- Keeping our services running
- Researching new problems
- Proposing solutions
- Building tools to make our jobs easier
We’re looking for candidates who:
- Bring a collaborative spirit
- Are pragmatic and solve the right problem at the right time
- Take pride in shipping their work
- Share their own unique perspective
