Software Engineer

Apply now

Kudos is looking for Software Engineers to join our cross-functional delivery teams as we design and build new products and improve our existing ones. Each team member works on every part of the system, from the front end, to the back, to managing our infrastructure. Some of the technologies we are using include JavaScript, Go, Ruby, Kubernetes, MySQL and Elasticsearch, running on AWS and GCP. Rather than looking for engineers with specific technology skills we'd much rather you can demonstrate the characteristics of a good Software Engineer, that you enjoy working collaboratively and have the ability and enthusiasm to learn about all aspects of our platform. We use agile frameworks to guide our product and engineering processes, currently Scrum, and are committed to cultivating a culture of continuous iterative improvement. We follow Continuous Delivery practices to continually deploy our platform and love staying up to date with current software technology and processes, drawing on the collective experiences of the industry to pick the right tool to deliver efficiently.


Skills & Requirements

The following attributes are critical to the role:

  • You have at least a year's commercial experience in using the tools and processes of modern software development: a couple of languages, source control with Git, an IDE or text editor and working within agile development processes
  • You write understandable, fully tested code, always thinking about maintainability
  • You have shipped commercial software and have learnt something from that experience
  • You can work independently making relevant technical decisions about your current task
  • You can communicate well with both engineers and other members of the business

Any of the following experiences would be really useful:

  • Analysis of data big enough to be non-trivial
  • Working within a Continuous Delivery focused environment
  • Experience of working with a cloud provider such as AWS or GCP
  • Working with containers in a production environment
  • Creating modern web UIs
