Gousto are on a mission to become the UK's favourite way to eat dinner. Delicious recipes, precise ingredients & a dollop of adventure, delivered to your door.
Tech, data and artificial intelligence are at the heart of everything we do, every aspect of our business is powered by code and the tech we build.
But what else is in our heart? Sustainability. We care about people and we care about the planet, so we reduce food waste and plastic.
Proud moments in 2019 :
2019 was big, but together we can make 2020 so much bigger!
Our Tech :
Our engineers have written code to reduce our transport and carbon footprint by optimising box contents to fit in smaller boxes (really, check out our !).
We are a scale up business on a steep growth trajectory, and with that comes the need to build a platform that can scale effectively.
We utilise our Machine Learning algorithms, from the recipe recommendations we show to customers, to efficiently routing boxes around our warehouse.
Our platform is entirely cloud-based, and many of our backend services are now delivered via AWS Lambda. Our continuous delivery pipeline is fully automated and we release code to production multiple times a day.
We’re in the process of moving our microservices architecture to containers and we heavily use asynchronous event-driven architecture with data bulkheading.
We know we’ve got lots of things right but we also have many things still to improve. Right now, we’re working on creating robust seed data for testing and flexible developer environments for coding.
What's it like to work here?
We don’t have QAs, and our architect works closely with squads to consult and collaborate.
The Opportunity :
We're 'all in' on AWS, using many of its services. Our platform and continuous delivery pipeline is fully automated using Cloudformation & Ansible, we release code to production multiple times a day and we’re in the process of moving our microservices architecture to containers.
We build our services in Python, PHP and Node.js with a significant proportion now delivered via AWS Lambda.
To support this growth, we're looking for an experienced and hugely talented Senior Python Engineer to help us take our technology platform to the next level.
More specifically, they’d primarily need to be leading the team forward on good practices and particularly testing. They would need to also be working with other python squads to ensure the practices adopted are aligned and shared with others in the same tech areas.
We are hugely committed to diversity and inclusion in all areas of Gousto.
