tails.com is a tech-centric startup, using the power of technology combined with applied nutritional science to change the world of dog food for good.
8 million. That’s how many meals we deliver every single month, and we’re just getting started.
Imagine a world where what you feed your dog is as carefully optimised as the recommendation engine for what to watch next on Netflix. Well that world exists - we’re creating it right now.
So where do you come in? Help turn 8 million into 8 billion. Our Cloud Infrastructure team are equal parts advocates, educators and consultants, working with our 40+ strong software engineering teams to build sound technical foundations along with a strong operations culture that’s robust and ready to scale. We’ll need bigger, more robust and increasingly distributed systems whilst retaining the agility and observability that enables us to deliver at pace.
Our tech stack is almost entirely Python 3, backed by RDS (MySQL / Postgres), Redis, DynamoDB, and S3 for data storage.
The platform is composed of resilient and scalable applications and services hosted in and powered by AWS, with most applications and services running in our Kubernetes clusters in EKS, along with ECS and a smattering of AWS Lambda. We manage our infrastructure-as-code through Terraform.
We have a propensity to ship early and often, so we push multiple deployments live per day through our CI / CD pipelines.
We're looking for someone who has a passion for technology, who gets a kick out of collaborating across the business to build robust infrastructure and smart tools that our engineers love.
The Software Engineering team has backgrounds in various programming languages. What is common is a hunger to learn new technology. Our tech stack is predominantly Python, so we expect you to learn Python. However, just like the technology we use, we are a company that is evolving constantly, and we expect you to evolve and learn with us.
In this role, you will:
You’ll get a competitive salary, reviewed annually, and from day one will be a shareholder in tails.com.
We’re proud to be on a high growth trajectory and offer the chance to work in an environment and with a team that will constantly challenge, support and develop you.
You’ll start on 25 days of holiday which will increase in the time you’re with us. On top of this, we offer optional unpaid leave and a paid volunteer day each year.
For expectant parents, we have extended maternity, paternity, shared parental and adoption pay.
