We are looking for a full-time software developer to help us build a world-class web platform.

Role overview

We are looking for a full-time software developer in London (or in Europe working remotely) to help us build a world-class web platform.

Our Engineering team consists of an ex-Googler, a DeepMind scholar, and other really talented and friendly people. We work in a collaborative atmosphere, and value autonomy highly.

About us

At Programmai, we use Machine Learning to empower e-commerce companies to market online effectively using their own data.

We’re a London based early-phase startup that just closed our seed round. We are building an easy-to-use platform to unleash the power of Machine Learning to help our clients with digital marketing.

Tech we use at present:

  • Google Cloud Platform, managed with Terraform;
  • Elixir for APIs, storage, and external integration;
  • Python for the Machine Learning pipelines;
  • React for the first version of our frontend (we are assessing ReasonML and Elm for the new version, stay tuned!)

Your responsibilities:

  • Build APIs to serve our user-facing web applications.
  • Model the business logic in relational databases.
  • Integrate with external APIs (e.g. Facebook, Google).
  • Help to evolve our system, improve automation, and make important technical decisions with us.
  • Review code and share knowledge.

Ideal candidates are expected to have:

  • Experience of writing readable, testable, and maintainable code.
  • Solid programming skills in at least one backend language (Elixir, C++, Python, Ruby etc).
  • Strong understanding in API design (RESTful or GraphQL).
  • Good understanding in SQL.
  • Willingness to learn new languages / technologies.

Bonus points if:

  • You have experience in any functional languages (particularly Elixir).
  • You have experience in Google Cloud Platform, Terraform, and CI/CD tools.
  • You are interested in gaining full-stack skills.

Why Programmai?

  • You can work with highly talented, friendly and passionate people, and have some fun on the way.
  • There are no layers of bureaucracy to work through. You can have a huge impact here.
  • You’ll have a front-row seat at an early-stage, fast-growing company that uses machine learning to disturb an existing problem area.

What’s in it for you?

  • Equity in a fast-growing company.
  • Competitive salary plus additional performance-related rewards
  • 25 days’ annual leave plus bank holidays.
  • Well-located office with our adorable dog Billie (if you are in London).

For now, everyone is fully remote, but we will return to our office in the future!
