We’ve been featured in Wired magazine for developing software that shatters the status quo. Now, we’re looking for a Production Engineer to join us in London or Bristol and play a key role in building and operating high-performing, reliable, secure and scalable software.

As a Production Engineer, you will:

- Gain exposure to the full technology stack
- Undertake assignments spanning deployment and infrastructure automation, performance engineering and release engineering
- Monitor distributed systems
- Work as part of Tech Operations, creating solutions that pave the road that all teams travel
- Build tools that improve production and deployment capabilities
- Give teams a boost and leave behind documentation and skills
- Contribute to on-call support as an escalation point
- Provide guidance and coach teams to enable a ‘you build it, you run it’ operational model
- Align with Production Operations to drive operational excellence and best practice

Interested? To be considered, you will need:

- Extensive software engineering and system design experience (we use Scala, Clojure, Node and React)
- Experience of distributed systems and data streaming architecture
- Previous experience of scripting languages and automation practices
- Demonstrable experience across DevOps skill-sets in Agile and XP environments
- AWS and/or GCP experience at scale
- Experience of CD and/or CI tooling and delivery best practices
- Previous experience of Kubernetes and container orchestration
- Network and security knowledge
- The ability to use a wide variety of open source technologies and tools

Whilst the above experience is important, we see Production Engineering as a mindset and so, ultimately, your demonstrable abilities and attitude are also key factors.

We’re eager to hear from individuals with experience as a Production Engineer, Software Engineer, Software Developer, System Design Engineer, Agile Developer or DevOps Engineer.

What are the perks?

- Join a business that’s in the Sunday Times’ top 20 list of the best companies to work for
- The chance to join teams who are given total responsibility for designing, building, testing and running their applications
- The opportunity to get involved with conferences, meet-ups, hackathons, tech talks and teaching kids to code
- A clearly defined career path
- Open plan office in central Bristol
- Lots of social events
- Training budget
- Matched volunteering and matched fundraising
