We are a team of Engineers who build SaaS software to help e-commerce retailers create and deliver great content experiences for their customers. Over 100 major e-commerce sites rely on our work, sending more than 1 billion API calls a day.
We have a multi talented team comprising frontend engineers, backend engineers and devops engineers. We rely on each other's expertise to solve the problems we are given. Most things we build have full stack implications, often involve unfamiliar technologies and require us to think creatively.
Finally, we like to be an active member of our tech community too. We founded and run a tech meetup in Middlesbrough called NE-Dev (http://www.meetup.com/NE-Dev/) and we have some open source projects.
Our systems are cloud native, we make extensive use of Amazon Web Services, allowing us to build better, reliable, scalable software.
Backend systems are mostly Java using lightweight frameworks like JAX-RS. We combine this with a range of supporting technologies including Cassandra, Solr Cloud, Hadoop and many AWS managed services.
Frontend is mostly single page applications, built using AngularJS and modern build processes like Gulp and Sass. We also maintain an open source library of frontend components for our customers to use.
All of this is managed and deployed by devops using technologies like Cloudformation and Puppet.
We are looking for a Sr Backend Engineer to join our growing team. Day to day you will help design and build cloud Java micro services. We would particularly love you to apply if some of the statements below describe you:
