Platform Engineer

 

At Micro Services Inc we believe that writing, deploying, and running code has become too complex. We want to strip away all the excess and get developers focused back on the code and not the plumbing. We’re building M3O (pronounced “em-three-oh”); a cloud platform for microservices development (https://m3o.com/). A fully managed service which lets developers focus on writing code rather than managing the infrastructure.

We’re looking for an engineer to help make our vision a reality for the world’s developer community. You’ll be joining a small, friendly team of engineers who are excited about defining and building the next model of cloud development. Everyone is given a high level of trust and autonomy to deliver their best work. This doesn’t mean you’ll be working in isolation though; we have a wide range of experience within the team from startups to agencies to corporates and everything in between so if you need to ask questions or want to bounce ideas off someone else we’ve got you covered.

What’s the tech stack?

We use a wide range of technologies including:

  • Go - in particular the OSS Micro framework (https://github.com/micro/micro) of which we are the primary owners/maintainers
  • Kubernetes and Docker
  • Cockroach DB (https://github.com/cockroachdb/cockroach)
  • NATS (https://nats.io/)
  • Pulumi

You don’t need to have experience with all of the above; just be open and excited to learn new things and improve the skills you already have.

What will you be working on?

Everything and anything that will help us build and scale our platform. That could include new features on the OSS tools, core infrastructure automation, customer facing features to help our users build amazing services and APIs, or anything else.

We’re a remote only company but we try to keep collaboration high through frequent video calls, instant messaging, design docs and pull requests. We follow (loosely) the agile process with two week sprints, daily standups, sprint demos and planning. We’re still learning though and hope you can bring your ideas to add to and improve our company culture and ways of working.

What benefits do you offer?

  • Stock options (you’ll own a piece of the pie)
  • 25 days of annual leave (+ public holidays)
  • Pension scheme
  • Flexible working hours

If you have any questions or you’re unsure about applying, please get in contact anyway.
