The role:
We are looking for highly driven, early career software engineers who take pride in their work, to expand our Engineering team in Portugal. Successful candidates will join a cross functional team including product managers and designers working closely with the rest of our business to deliver working code that solves real problems for both internal and external customers. You will take ownership of the problems that your team solves, ensuring a high level of quality in everything that we release, working as part of a top performing international development team. If you have a strong passion for solving problems with code, and want to work with exceptional colleagues in a high achievement environment, this role is a good fit for you. 
What you’ll do:
  • Design solutions: Define the best technical solutions to business problems, contributing to an architectural vision that will scale up to be the world's leading research platform.
  • Ship working code: We primarily work with React on the frontend and Kotlin microservices with Postgres on the backend, with some older services written in Ruby on Rails. We’ve always got an eye open to assess new technologies that might improve our stack.
  • Deploy and iterate: We release frequently to our customers, using CIrcleCI and Spinnaker for CI/CD, and quickly gather feedback in order to inform our next iteration.
  • Build your competency: You will learn quickly by building market-leading technology with experienced colleagues in a high performance environment. Engineers can also use our L&D budget to fast-track development of specific technical competencies. 
  • Maintenance and troubleshooting: Carefully monitor our services, catching errors before users notice them, diagnosing the root cause and deploying fixes.
Who you are:
  • High-achieving recent graduate with a degree in Computer Science or a related field.
  • Proven track record – you have clear accomplishments both in and out of university, standing out from your peers. 
  • You have practical experience, applying your technical skills in a professional environment.
  • You have excellent communication skills, collaborating closely and effectively with teammates.  
  • Highly driven and proactive – you relentlessly and independently push through hurdles and drive towards excellent outcomes.
  • Meticulous – you hold high standards and have an obsessive attention to detail.
Don't worry if your experience or background doesn't match all of these areas, we believe a broad spectrum of experience provides great perspective on solving problems in new and innovative ways and we’d love to hear from you.
