The Opportunity

We’re one of the big suppliers, we’re agile and move quickly when it comes to tech. We’re evolving our IT landscape from traditional on-premise monoliths to a collection of scalable, independent micro services which enable us to react to the fast paced nature of business and uncertainty.

Our Software Engineering practice is at the heart of this transformation, and is a multi-disciplined team with generalists and specialists; be it front-end, back-end, DevOps, SRE or QA – everyone’s welcome!


We are supported by strong collaboration with our architects, delivery leads and product owners and our methodology is based around agile delivery, DevOps structure and high amounts of test and pipeline automation. We’d love to hear from Back-End engineers who want to help shape, develop and grow our software engineering practice.

Our Technology

We work almost exclusively within the native cloud space, leveraging the AWS platform and an ecosystem of external SaaS components. Architecturally we strive to be "serverless first", where practical, and recognise and use containerization where necessary.


Our core working methods are based around modern DevOps process; shift-left, whole-sale automation of testing, and deployment, and "everything as code"


A high level view of our tech stack is:


  • AWS tools and resources inc; CodeBuild/CodePipeline, IAM, Lambda, S3, SNS, SQS, EventBridge, CloudWatch, Cloudformation, Step Functions, DDB, Cognito, API Gateway, S3+Cloudfront hosting
  • CI/CD  with Github/CodeBuild/CodePipeline
  • Front-end; ReactJS with styled components / StoryBook
  • ReactNative for web and mobile
  • Languages; right tool for the job!, but typically JS/TS, and Python.
  • IaC; Terraform, Serverless Framework and SAM
  • Ops; CloudWatch, NewRelic
  • Test; Jest, Cypress, Cucumber


We are looking for an experienced Back-end Developers to work on our Integration with SaaS solutions, you'll feel at home using data, building pipelines, deployment, wrangling API’s (REST/GraphQL) and event driven architectures (using EventBridge). 

The Role & Skills

We’re keen to speak with open minded and curious Engineers who are looking to make their mark and help us build new landscape and team. We value collaboration and sharing and its not just about technology its about understanding the problem, experience and domain.

Our typical ways of working look like this: 


  • Agile, typically 2x sprint cycles
  • Delivery/Collaboration based around Confluence, Jira, Slack, Teams
  • Engineers deployed into self contained product teams “squads” that operate with larger domains or “tribes”
  • Guilds used to bring common roles and interests together
  • DevOps accountability – build and run

The team is growing rapidly and we are always looking for different levels of talent. Our preference is promote within the team and grow our engineers into seniors and leads where they have the aptitude and desire. There are also scope across the wider technology teams too if you have ambitions longer term outside of just software engineering.
