The role

Have you got a need for speed? Are you an engineer with a passion for scalability and performance? Come help make us as scalable as we can be! As Performance Engineer you will drive the testing, monitoring and optimisation of our apps and sites, as well as building the tools that enable other engineers to discover and tune up performance issues in their code. It's a varied role with a lot of freedom and you will collaborate with our other dev teams to improve the scalability and performance of our growing micro-service based core systems.

What you'll be doing

  • Help design, build and deploy software systems that run 24/7 at scale.
  • Design and build your performance testing infrastructure and processes.
  • Analyse metrics and code to uncover performance regressions and opportunities for optimisation, and work with teams across the organisation to speed things up.
  • Write code, document, participate in code reviews, and mentor other engineers.

Who you are

We are looking for an experienced performance engineer to join our growing Core Tech team. It is important that you can demonstrate:

  • A passion for application performance and scalability.
  • Problem-solving from first principles.
  • Proven ability to find and fix troublesome performance issues that span multiple systems.
  • Experience exploring datasets and turning performance metrics into easily-understood data visualisations.
  • Experience integrating performance tools into Continuous Integration/Deployment pipelines
  • An important part of our backend is written in Go and Node.js, so it is a bonus (but not mandatory) if you have direct experience of these technologies.
  • Experience working with CDNs (varnish, Fastly, Cloudflare) is beneficial.

We are always working on improving, tweaking and enhancing our systems so whether that means adopting a new framework or re-writing components, you have to enjoy this way of working!
