We’re looking for an experienced JavaScript developer to work on building back-end services and APIs. You’ll be working in a modern, cloud-native environment, able to shape the product from your first day.

We’ll use the best cloud-native, serverless technologies to help us focus on delivering features and value, rather than infrastructure. Our tech will both delight our customers and not be noticed if we’re doing our job right.

Key deliverables:

  • Developing our services with TypeScript (with Node.js) in Lambda
  • Often. Automated testing with CI/CD. Design and evolve our DevOps tooling.
  • AWS Lambda with Serverless framework
  • Building our AWS cloud environment – we build it, we run it
  • Performance tuning and optimisation
  • Be enthusiastic about learning new things to help us go faster and stay lean
  • Experiment, test, measure, iterate
  • Security focussed – we take it seriously and have run hacker bounty programs

Essential skills and experience:

  • TypeScript, JavaScript (ES6+), Node.js
  • AWS Services – AWS Lambda, DynamoDB, SQS, SNS etc
  • GraphQL (Apollo), with some REST API endpoints
  • Git
  • Serverless framework (, AWS CDK
  • Data modelling (NoSQL and Relational – DynamoDB, Postgres RDS)
  • Event Driven and Async Patterns
  • Domain-driven design/service-oriented architecture/microservices experience very useful

Desirable skills and experience:

  • Any frontend/hybrid app stack exposure (modern HTML/CSS, React) – this role can absolutely be full stack if you’re up for the challenge
  • Willingness to adopt additional languages – Python and Golang are also in use. Polyglots welcome.
