Software Engineer Web Scalability

Posted 6 March by Reqiva Ltd
Software Engineer: Java | Python | Node.JS | API's

Multiple positions available within this leading tech company in London, looking for experienced Software Engineers with a passion and skill for massive web scalability using Java, Python or Node.JS (other tech considered!)


The company are very highly regarded as well as being widely recognised across the world - they are offering the opportunity to join the UK team at a fairly early stage and be heavily involved in the continued building of the brand and the intricate development of a web product that needs to scale to accommodate millions (and billions!) of visits/users. They are fairly tech agnostic at this stage so there is plenty of opportunity to get involved with new technology and help to influence the technology roadmap through your expertise. The main tech areas of focus will be around Java, Python and Node.JS, possibly some Big Data and Functional Programming and a lot of API & WebServices work in a hugely scalable, optimised and high availability environment.

Skills Required:

*Significant software engineering skills in a range of Web Development languages (or very specialist skills in one language): Java, Python, Node.JS, Java, Clojure, Scala, GO, PHP etc.
*A sound knowledge of web scalability, optimisation, high availability systems (potentially from an eCommerce background or something similar)
*Strong back-end and Database / RDBMS experience e.g. MySQL, Postgres, memcache, NoSQL, Hadoop, Redis
*Advanced Linux skills and ideally some experience of Cloud development/deployment (AWS)
*Excellent experience of API's, WebServices and web scalability
*Experience of Agile methodologies including Scrum, Test / Behavioural Driven Development, Continuous Integration / Deployment (Atlassian stack, Jenkins, Puppet, Bamboo, GIT, JIRA, JMeter, SVN, JUnit etc.)
*Excellent communication skills are a must!


£40,000 - £60,000 depending on experience (multiple positions available at different levels).
