  • Keep security front of mind for everything we build from the very start
  • Work transparently by default, sharing the highs and the lows together with your team, through open communication, documentation, and public discussions wherever possible.

This role could be ideal for you if you:

  • Enjoy picking up projects that are wholly infrastructure focused, have experience working with Google Cloud Platform technologies, and have built reliable and well-tested infrastructure on top of Cloud services.
  • Have built production-quality software in any programming language, such as Go, Python, Ruby on Rails, or React, ideally customer-facing, at some point in your career.
  • Have experience bootstrapping observability tooling at scale and hold strong convictions about building reliable infrastructure to enable product teams to deliver high quality software
  • Want to help build a team, by working collaboratively to problem solve and taking extra time to explain things, provide actionable feedback, and level up those around you.
  • Embrace challenges with undefined solutions, diving into research and debugging to discover new tools and solve complex issues.

The salary for this position is determined by several job-related factors, such as experience, relevant skills, training, location, business needs, or market demands. The salary range for this role is £90,000 -£130,000. This position will also offer equity options.
