We write applications in Golang to enable our customers to interact with complex systems in simple, consistent ways. What you will do. As a Platform Software Engineer you'll be leading the way with the latest technologies including: Go for writing our custom solutions Docker to containerise them Jenkins to build them Kubernetes to run them Grafana and Prometheus to monitor them It's quite OK if some of the above is new to you, so long as you have an appetite and energy for imparting what you know, and learning what you don't. How you will do it Reporting into the Lead Software Engineer, you will: Turn concepts and requirements into highly available solutions using industry standard languages and technologies such as Go, Kubernetes, Docker, Prometheus, AWS, and Terraform. Write custom Kubernetes Operators to provide automated and consistent ways of integrating with traditional APIs, enabling our development teams throughout the business to define their infrastructure as code. Empowering them with autonomy, allowing them to focus on their strengths and reacting to business demands as quickly as possible. Take ownership for code quality, security and scalability and have an equal grasp of the overall system you are working on and how it meets the needs of the end users, and business objectives. Balance the commercial needs of the business against the ideal technical design, proposing sound phased or tactical implementations where appropriate. Help choose the right tool for the job. Whilst we love writing bespoke software - we don't want to reinvent the wheel when open source solutions exist. Understand the importance of non-functionals such as real-time monitoring, good alert design and great logging strategies. Ensuring systems perform well to deliver the best user experience possible is something you consider as part of the normal delivery process. Collaborate with other team members and the wider squad; learning from them, and in turn working with them to help them improve their own skills too.
