Golnag/Django Developer - Golang/Django Engineer - Golang - Django - Kubernetes - AWS - 6 months - £550/£600 (Outside IR35) - London - Immediate Starters

My client are still fairly early into this journey (there's seven of us in the team) so you'll have the opportunity to help shape the vision and technical direction! The team and product will grow fast and you'll have the opportunity to grow with it.

The client itself is being spun out of the innovation labs of an existing investment firm. This means we have all the excitement of being a new and growing company but with backing from a big company and access to their corporate partners.

Paying up to £600 (Outside IR35) depending on experience

  • We really value open communication and feedback (when delivered with empathy and compassion). Hopefully you'll feel the same way.
  • You have experience in building systems at scale. It doesn't matter about the language or domain but we need engineers who have exposure to the sort of problems we'll face.
  • You have strong software craftsmanship tendencies, you take pride in producing clean, testable and readable code; and enjoy taking ownership of the features you're working on end to end.
  • You're constantly learning and are comfortable working on new technologies and domains. We'll support you as much as possible but we need people who can drive their own learning when thrown into a new area.
  • You're excited by big challenges, this isn't going to be simple to build and there will be a lot of interesting and difficult engineering problems to overcome. If you're excited by this then we'd love to hear from you.
  • Any experience with financial engineering or capital markets is a bonus, but not a prerequisite.


  • The main platform uses a modern Back End stack of Golang microservices running on AWS. We use Kubernetes for orchestration and Kafka for queueing, GraphQL for our APIs and a mixture of Low/No Code technologies for internal tools and React for customer apps.
  • We also use Azure for our third party deployment, using a mixture of container instances, service bus and SQL Server as well as some old school VMs, so any experience with operating workloads in Azure would be a bonus!
  • It's important to say that they're not expecting you to have experience with any of this tech, we're much more interested in your background, experience and willingness to learn. So whatever your background (bootcamp, comp-sci degree, self taught, something else!) if you're interested in what we're doing we'd love to hear from you!
  • Otherwise they value following engineering best practices while making pragmatic and deliberate trade offs based on risk and speed of delivery. For our most important systems we move carefully with a strong test based approach but for less critical systems we use technical debt as a useful tool. We believe in shipping small changes often and iterating quickly over designing a system from scratch.

The interview process has begun, so if you believe you have the right experience then please get in touch ASAP!
