What technology will you be working with?

  • Our teams have flexibility to make the technology choices that best provide customer value to partners.
  • As a member of the team, you’ll be involved in these choices. As an example, most teams build RESTful services, typically with simple APIs using JSON. These are usually built on the JVM with Java but some pick Scala, Clojure and Kotlin. Some teams use node.js.
  • Many teams are decomposing their services into microsystems to make things easier to maintain and continually deploy.
  • When appropriate, you will help teams build streaming architectures and we also have teams working on front-end solutions, generally using React.js.
  • Your team will be cloud-native or moving enthusiastically to AWS. We organize for feature velocity, so wherever appropriate, your teams will use AWS services like Lambda, Kinesis, ElastiCache, Aurora, DynamoDB and of course EC2, ECS and S3.
  • To further help speed things up, you’ll look to build on top of open source systems and libraries like Redis, GRPC, Akka, Cassandra, and MongoDB.

What are you likely to be spending your days doing?

  • Develop, debug, and modify components of software applications and tools.
  • You will write automated unit, integration and acceptance tests as appropriate to support our continuous integration pipelines
  • Support and troubleshoot data and/or system issues as needed
  • Provide improvements to solutions for a given problem.
  • You will solve problems and roadblocks as they occur with help from peers or managers. Follow through on details and drive issues to closure.
  • You define, develop and maintain artefacts like technical design or stakeholder documentation
  • You actively participate in code and design reviews
  • Participate in user story creation
