GoCardless is hiring a

Junior Software Engineer

London, United Kingdom

About the job

We’re looking for talented engineers to help us reimagine how payments software looks and works.

Our work

At GoCardless we find creative ways to deliver simple solutions to complex problems. We do this by keeping our development cycles fast, by reviewing and adapting our plans frequently, and by investing in a culture of continuous feedback.

We build simple, reliable systems on top of technologies we understand and trust. We're primarily built in Ruby and JavaScript using Rails and Angular, and we rely on Postgres, Elasticsearch, RabbitMQ, and Chef. However, we believe in using the best technologies for each task – we have used React where server rendering is needed, Go for our infrastructure, and Python for our data analysis.

We value learning and feedback and are committed to encouraging and supporting each other’s professional growth. Moreover, we believe in sharing our knowledge with and contributing to the wide tech community. We frequently host meetups, hackathons, and we open source projects we are proud of.

What we’re looking for

We’re looking for junior software engineers who share our desire to build high quality products that put customers at the forefront of our development. As a member of our engineering team you will work closely with other teams across the company to define our engineering roadmap and to understand what is most important to the customer.

We’d love to hear from you if you have experience building products for the web and enjoy solving problems and automating responses for recurrent issues.

● Building and improving our products, and adding new features

● Examining current software and determining requirements for future software
