You will join a team of individuals who embrace and respect diverse perspectives, aren’t afraid to push boundaries and try new ideas, and are passionate about helping our customers and each other succeed. We work hard, but we also don’t wait for an excuse to have fun. In fact, we’re so serious about it that it’s one of our core values. Located in a stunning, Grade II listed building overlooking the River Ouse in York, you are set up to not only do great work but be in an environment that is inspiring.

If you want to join a fast-growing startup, work with super smart, friendly people, and play with some cool technology, then you’ve found the right place.


What You’ll Be Doing

Our patented Hyperblock engine is a Java-based, in-memory data processor that delivers outstanding analytical calculation performance. We run on Linux and support our core product with both commercial and open-source technology. Our SREs are responsible for: 

  • Automating, replicating, and scaling our infrastructure in both public cloud and private data center environments
  • Monitoring the health of our systems
  • Configuring and managing bare-metal servers, virtual machines, and containers
  • Orchestrating and coordinating release deployments
  • Helping development teams get their services into production and supporting them once there
  • Participating in on-call rotations

More About You 

  • Experience of managing production environments (the more war stories the better!)
  • Sound understanding of configuration management (we use Chef and Ansible)
  • The ability to automate away problems (we generally use Ruby, Python, or Bash)
  • A deep understanding of the Linux kernel and the ability to debug difficult problems (we get to learn together when we do this as a team)
  • Exposure to a wide range of applications and services: from load balancers and webservers, to Java apps and messaging systems, to relational and NoSQL databases
  • An appreciation of the fundamentals of networking (where did my packet go?)
  • Public cloud environments (we’re on AWS and GCP specifically)

What We Offer 

  • A rewarding, progressive career with a company that values diversity, flexibility and understands the need for a good work/life balance.
  • Market-leading salaries combined with generous bonuses, equity and a range of comprehensive benefits.
  • Regular agile meetups, events and hackathons (both attending and hosting!)
  • Flexible working, catered lunches, a fully stocked kitchen and plenty of parties and events
  • A range of sports, health and wellbeing initiatives
  • 3 additional days of paid leave every year to help support the charity or cause of your choice.
  • Huge problems to solve – you will constantly be learning and pushing boundaries, working with some of the smartest people around!
