We’re looking for a smart, experienced and enthusiastic Platform Engineer to join us in London at the early stages of our journey, building the UK’s best car buying experience.

We’ve got lots of fascinating puzzles to solve and systems to build, from providing an industry-best search experience, to user and order management, purchasing and fulfillment, pricing and valuation, and more.

Underpinning it all will be the tooling and frameworks that you support, helping the wider development team on a day to day basis

Your passion and experience will make a massive difference as you join a small and friendly team where teamwork, pride in your work and a positive and practical attitude is key.

Joining a startup at its birth is a rare opportunity - you’ll find yourself in a job that is full of energy and purpose, with a sense that anything’s possible.

If you’re highly-motivated, in tune with all of the latest DevOps developments, can handle ambiguity and are always keen to understand what makes the wider business work then we’d love to talk to you

What you’ll be doing

  • Building the tools and frameworks that underpin our systems and services
  • Helping teams to move fast in creating and scaling their infrastructure
  • Automating governance, monitoring, and self-healing so that our systems become easier to manage in production
  • Closely collaborating with other developers, understanding their needs and providing operational expertise when they need help
  • Key skills and experience required :

  • Strong working knowledge of AWS services including ECS, EC2, Lambda, VPC, IAM, Route53, CloudFront, S3, RDS, ElastiCache, ElasticSearch
  • Excellent understanding of monitoring and logging solutions, e.g. Prometheus, AWS Cloudwatch, Grafana, and the ELK Stack
  • Proven ability to provide and support strong and scalable CI / CD pipelines
  • Linux, Git, Docker and good scripting skills in e.g. Python, bash, Go
  • Comfortable with defining Infrastructure as Code, using Terraform or Ansible
  • Familiarity with Node.js environments is a plus
  • Knowledgeable and comfortable with Agile development practices
  • Great appetite for learning and self-improvement
  • Helpful, smart and pragmatic
  • Previous experience in ecommerce is a bonus
  • And last but certainly not least someone with a sizeable appetite for learning and self-development, with a fun and sociable side!

    What you’ll get from us :

    Joining a startup at its birth is a rare opportunity, giving you the chance to work with the latest practices and technologies with no legacy code at all to slow you down.

    That includes AWS Lambda, continuous deployment, and Typescript.

    We offer a competitive salary and benefits including eligibility for equity. We provide free breakfast, soft drinks and fruit in our friendly office which also has a number of great facilities.
