Are you a Senior Backend or Full Stack Engineer keen to learn/work with GoLang?

Tired of the corporate world and wanting to work for a people first tech business working on something sustainable?

You're looking at the right job!

Come & join one of the most exciting tech businesses in the South West, working alongside an incredible and passionate Engineering team!

I imagine that this next career move is an important one for you, and that working for a business that truly puts people first and has a highly inclusive environment is what you might be looking for. Therefore, I can confidently say that this is a tech company that offers endless autonomy and the right amount of flexibility for you to have a great work/life balance. They have created and nurtured an environment where their employees can feel at home and that they can be their true authentic selves at work. It's a safe space.

SR2 has been working with this business for many years now, we have helped to build & grow their company since their earlier days as a start-up. Now officially in their scale-up phase, after millions of investments and continued growth and going from success to success.

They are building a brand-new team within the company and looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join and work on their modern tech stack and a brand-new product. This is all Greenfield work and a chance to really make an impact with the work you do.

The role is working full stack, however we are looking for someone who would first and foremost class themselves as a Backend Software Engineer with experience in Golang. You do not want to miss out on this!

Technologies in use:

Golang, Microservices, Kubernetes, Terraform, Amazon Cognito, Open API, GCP - whilst this is a full stack role also using React, TypeScript and NodeJS.

You can expect no technical debt or legacy here! The system is very new so you'll be purely focused on building architecture and new exciting features for their customers.

Along with their mission and technology being second to none. The ultimate best thing about this business is their culture and attitude towards putting their people first.

You can expect lots of monthly socials happening, plus in September every year they do a company trip away together with all expenses covered to celebrate the success and spend time together as a team.

Interested to find out more?

Here are some of the skills and experience we're looking for (don't worry if you don't tick every box, we're looking for amazing humans who are motivated by their technologies and mission):

  • Strong knowledge and understanding of Computer Science (algorithms, data structures, object-oriented programming)
  • You've worked in a fast-paced environment and understand the nature of start-ups and brining new products to the market (things can change quickly and move fast!)
  • Ideally you have experience with Go (however languages such as Java will also be considered) with the ability to pick up Go
  • Experienced with the DevOps process (preferably with Kubernetes)
  • Strong interest in following best engineering practices and following TDD, BDD, CI/CD and Automation
  • Database experience with SQL, NoSQL or GraphDBs
  • You've worked in a Cloud/DevOps'y environment with understanding of Terraform, GCP or AWS.

Range of Benefits they offer:

  • Generous share scheme to share in the company success as they believe it's a collective effort
  • Monthly wellbeing allowance to spend on any type of self-care, career coaching, therapy, gym membership, free food delivered to your door etc - They believe in supporting employee's mental health and ensuring you are taking care of you!
  • Flexible holiday policy of 33 days (including bank holidays but you can move them to different dates)
