Fancy working in a Greenfield project? - transforming existing tech to Go-based stack. 

My client is a successful travel company, operating for over 40 years and based in Kent, UK. They are going through an internal transformation resulting in an overhaul of their existing technology stack. They want to build a technology platform fit for their ambitious growth plans - and have chosen Go to form the backbone of the stack. 

They have asked me to find a talented engineer to help bring this plan to life. You will work in a small, autonomous product team.

You role will comprise: 
  • Building microservice APIs using modern tools.
  • Delivering high-quality, well-tested code
  • Engineering reliable operational automation for CI & continuous deployment to the cloud.
  • Communicating with other teams and individuals to plan, coordinate and seek feedback
  • Pitching in where needed as a valued member of an autonomous, cross-functional team

Ideally you will have commercial Go experience as well as:

  • Excellent analytical, problem-solving, and troubleshooting skills
  • You know the difference between git merge and git rebase
  • You understand when to use a SQL, a no-SQL or a graph database.
  • You want to maximise business value through well-met requirements
  • You have experience deploying production applications (e.g. Heroku, AWS, GAE)
  • You rave about the benefits that CI / CD has given you in previous projects
  • You care deeply about performance, availability and API design
  • Great communication skills
