  • Use Docker/Kubernetes container tools deploying complex threaded Java microservices in both AWS and GCP.
  • Minimise discrepancies practicing with peers in paired programming, TDD/ BDD and continuous integration.
  • Solve multithreaded Java challenges incorporating any wider programming tools available to you including Python (Data projects), Kotlin (Android projects), Rust and C++.

By the end of the year the company will hit the £1bn valuation mark, remarkable for an organisation just 4 years old, with its best months of trading happening right now during this pandemic. The team will also offer part remote working following Covid.
