Full Time / London
Welcome, welcome! We’re Attest: a consumer growth platform. We allow consumer businesses to put data at the heart of decision-making, empowering them to drive predictive and repeatable growth. Our mission is quite simple: to put people front and centre of every business.
We’re spearheaded by a bunch of awesome individuals, and our guess is that you’re pretty awesome, too. We’re chuffed that you’ve taken the first step to becoming an Attester by expressing an interest in who we are and what we do.
At Attest, we’ve simplified the exercise of gathering consumer intelligence so that our customers can spend more time understanding and actioning the results; making meaningful decisions faster and more often to grow their businesses.
This year, we’re almost doubling all areas of Attest, including our engineering team. We need your help to build an architecture that can scale while increasing the teams’ efficiency and delivering high-quality features more often. To do that, we are moving to an event-driven architecture using Kafka.
What you’ll be doing
In your first six to twelve months you’ll be directly involved in slowly migrating our architecture to use Kafka, while also delivering new features using it. You’ll teach other less-experienced engineers about the ins and outs of event-driven architectures so that they can contribute to it too. Your efforts will help other engineers and squads to deploy changes more efficiently and without stepping on each other’s toes.
Our tech stack utilises some of the latest technologies, such as; grpc, linkerd2, postgres and elasticsearch (to name just a few) all running on Kubernetes. We mainly code in go and java, and going forward we are focussing on building event sourced systems in go. Experience in these areas will be a big plus.
At Attest you will
Collaborate with the whole team to identify and create best-in-class products.
Deliver features regularly, be comfortable with ambiguity, and push for code quality always.
Participate in planning, stand-ups and retrospective meetings.
Explore innovative ways to solve problems, and become an expert in high-availability systems.
Design highly efficient architectures that scale around user demand.
Who you are
A team player. Collaborative, self-motivated, creative, entrepreneurial & thoughtful style.
Thrive with opportunities. Enjoy solving complex data & architecture problems efficiently.

What you’ll bring to Attest
Expertise in building and maintaining event-driven architectures.
Expertise in developing, testing & debugging highly-available distributed systems.
Experience with databases: PostgreSQL / mySQL / DynamoDB / Redis.
