What we're looking for

We're looking for a Senior Software Engineer who likes working in a close-knit team and enjoys all aspects of the dev process including a good amount of DevOps.

The ideal candidate will be someone who can play an integral part in developing and scaling our technology so it can meet the needs of a global SaaS platform. The role also involves taking on a leadership position within the software engineering team, which will include line management, hiring of new engineers and continuously aiming to improve existing processes.

You should be able to build clean, secure and efficient code based on specifications and in compliance with coding standards.

Further requirements:

  • Proven experience as a Senior Software Engineer or similar role building web applications using Ruby and/or Python

  • Knowledge of Vue.js or equivalent Javascript framework a plus
  • Knowledge of docker and Kubernetes
  • Experience of building and scaling SaaS apps a plus
  • Ability and willingness to learn new languages and technologies

  • Significant experience analysing and improving the efficiency, scalability, and stability of various system resources
  • BSc degree in Computer Science or Engineering or equivalent industry-level experience

What’s in it for you

Intruder is a dynamic and well-funded startup operating in a very fast growing market (even during the current economic downturn). You'll join the company at just the right time, we've established a product-market fit, we've just doubled the size of the team and things are now really taking off!

This is a senior role and we're offering a competitive salary in the range of £65,000 - £85,000, depending on your existing experience and skill set. In addition, we will add share options that allow you to significantly benefit financially as we increase the value of the company.

Our base is London, but we have team members located around the globe. We're going through a period of significant growth right now but our top priority is to ensure we keep our fun but professional working environment. Due to COVID, we're currently all working from home but we're looking to establish a London office (likely to be in Shoreditch) as soon as that's possible. We'll consider remote applications for this role as long as you're within 2 hours of the GMT timezone.
