We're looking for a Senior Software Engineer, with a passion for technology and how it can make ‘magic’ happen. Somebody who takes pride in the quality of their source code, and strives for ‘beautiful’ code, simple, clean design, and believes less is more. You are bright, and get things done, which means you have initiative and can quickly understand and tackle problems. We don't expect you to have experience using all the technology we deploy, but being eager to get stuck in with new tech is essential! You will work on the optimisation of our cloud backend hosted in AWS and will report to the Manager of Software Development RMM.

This role is open to remote working possibilities within the UK.

A Look Inside the Job:

Since the role will involve working with all aspects of the platform, full stack experience would be ideal, especially working with distributed systems and the complexities that can introduce. You will work predominantly with backend services hooked together using REST, Pub/Sub, and Queuing. Our production systems all run on Linux using Ubuntu on AWS, and we encourage Developers to get their hands dirty with troubleshooting, so prior Linux experience will be useful when a customer runs into problems with “The New Feature” you’ve been working on. Thankfully though, we’ve got a solid log aggregation setup using the Elastic Stack and harvest millions of metrics from all our running instances, presented through Grafana, so we rarely need to dig that deep to get the information we need. Coordination and management wise we use the Atlassian Stack, including JIRA for issue tracking, Confluence for general documentation, BitBucket (Git) for source control and code reviews (Yes, we’ll expect you to review and be reviewed!), and Bamboo for CI. You don't need to have used them before though, as they're pretty easy to get started with. Finally, while most of us work on Macs and use IntelliJ IDEA as our IDE’s, neither of those are required and we’re happy to kit out Developers with whatever makes them most productive.

About You:

You will work with the following technologies, so experience here would be desirable though not required, at least not across the board:

  • Java experience is a must, and if you’ve branched into Kotlin, all the better!
  • Spring Boot, microservices
  • AWS managed services - S3, SQS, RDS, DynamoDB, Lambda, ECS, Kinesis Docker, containerised apps
  • SQL (MySQL and PostgreSQL), GraphQL REST and SOAP APIs Redis, DynamoDB
  • The Elastic Stack, primarily Elasticsearch
  • You know, for search Experience in data sciences, machine learning and other aspects of AI Non-Blocking IO, EventSource/SSE

At Datto, we believe our employees are our greatest asset and offer all full-time employees a wide-ranging benefits and perks package, including:

  • “Datto University” virtual on-boarding program complete with Datto Swag
  • Private health/dental insurance
  • EAP (Employee Assistance Program) 
  • LifeWorks offering discounts at local retailers/restaurants 
  • Income protection
  • LinkedIn Learning
  • Datto Academy Learning Platform
  • Headspace App Subscription
  • Talent Development Team focussed on your career advancement
