Lead Go Engineer - £110 000 (UK - Fully Remote)

You are someone who prides themselves on making smart decisions. The question is in this job market, what is the smart decision?

The smart move would probably be to join a company that does not rely on VC money. Finding a profitable business with a broad customer base would likely be smart. A customer base who really appreciates what this company does for them and will continue to use their service even as they look to reduce their spending in other areas. In fact even better would be if this business helped its customers save money in the face of the threat of recession and the rapidly rising cost of living. This advert is about a role with that business.

With 1 000 000 customers already and a goal of doubling that number, this UK-based business helps people consolidate their monthly household bills and also uses its collective bargaining power to negotiate amazing discounts. Delivering high-quality service to that number of customers requires a brilliant technology department. Payments, Customer Data, Customer support tools, Supplier integrations, and Spending Insights are a few areas requiring constant innovation.

Key Technologies

  • Go, TypeScript, React

  • Deploy to Kubernetes over both AWS and GCP

  • Event sourcing

  • Microservices

How do they work?

Although they have over 200 people working in technology, this business still manages to move quickly. The way Mark, their CTO, put it is that they “strive to deliver big company scale whilst moving at small company speed”. They have been offering fully remote

working long before the rest of the market, and they have mature processes in place that ensure relationships trump location.

Why do they need you?

As part of their rapid growth, they have been expanding and continue to expand their engineering teams. They have grown quickly and their remote first hiring policy has ensured they have been able to hire large numbers of mid-level and senior engineers but

they need great leaders to step up and look after squads of between 4-6 people.
