Infrastructure Engineer

full-time FundApps London

FundApps is a startup that helps investment managers comply with worldwide regulation. Our competition is stuck in the dark ages with slow, clunky, complicated user interfaces and installed software. Were shaking up the industry - providing a beautiful & intuitive web-based service which takes away our customers pains and lets them get on with what they do best.

We ❤️ clean, simple solutions (and fun times)

Were a small team of smart, friendly people who collaborate closely and take pride in delivering amazing software and providing extraordinary customer support. You’ll help shape what we work on and how we do it. You won’t be micro-managed or stuck in a rut. We work hard on challenging problems and have a good time doing it

If youve got high standards and are passionate about customer experience this is the role for you. Our customers rely on us day-in day-out to provide a reliable, responsive and secure service, all whilst scaling to meet the demands of a rapidly growing customer base and data volumes.

What were doing

Were a heterogeneous Windows/Linux shop, with the core of our main product in .NET and new service buildout currently in Golang. Were not precious about technologies, and were keen to take the right tools for the task at hand - weve got code across C#, F#, PowerShell, Ruby, Python and Golang. Weve adopted a number of AWS services including the use of Lambda for serverless architectures.

We take our software seriously, employing Continuous Delivery through TeamCity, Octopus Deploy and AWS CodeDeploy. Logging and monitoring are key too - with SumoLogic, AWS CloudWatch and PagerDuty key components of our stack.

What youll be doing

Having completed a full migration to AWS in the last 12 months, were currently hard at work making full use of the HashiCorp Suite/HashiStack (Atlas, Packer, Terraform and Consul) to manage our AWS production infrastructure. Were building 12-factor, cloud native applications using best of breed practices from the operations space.

Youll be helping to build out, deploy and maintain a service-oriented architecture (SOA) to support features in our main product and new product development as well as infrastructure work relating to our production AWS infrastructure.
