  • Working directly with the product owners and business to develop solutions to support the product roadmap.
  • Work with the Chapter Lead and other engineers to help to develop and promote the long-term technical strategy.
  • Support the deployment of changes into the production environment and aid in the investigation of live issues or incidents.
  • Learning new skills and technologies and that will help the team and yourself

Experience and Qualifications Required

  • · Strong working knowledge of Javascript, especially of node and its ecosystem
  • · Strong working knowledge of unit testing and test driven development
  • · Strong knowledge of web technologies and working with APIs (e.g. REST)
  • · Experience of public cloud platforms (GCP a bonus)
  • · Experience with CI/CD tools
  • · Experience of modern version-control systems, such as Git
  • · Understanding of agile/lean/DevOps methodologies and practices
  • · Ability to design solutions and cater for non-functional requirements such as performance and security
  • · Good communication skills, to present effectively to peers and stakeholders

Technical skills: Desirable

  • · Knowledge of Infrastructure as Code (Terraform preferred)
  • · Experience of working with databases, whether RDBMS or NoSQL
  • · Experience of Typescript
  • · Knowledge of NLU technologies
  • · Knowledge of Azure DevOps
  • · Familiarity with CPaaS (Communication Platforms as a Service) and/or messaging platforms

Interview Process

There will be a 2- stage process. The first stage is an on-line technical test and second stage is a competency-based interview via MS Teams. Interviews will take place throughout March.
