”Help people around the world to live a happier and healthier life”
We are migrating towards a service based architecture, breaking up their Django monolith into smaller pieces to make them more flexible and maintainable. They are cloud hosted on AWS, running their Python and Go apps in containers against Amazon provided services.
Their services are primarily APIs which are consumed by mobile clients, asynchronous tasks running longer operations, and occasionally web-facing UIs. Lifesum’s philosophy is to choose the right tool for every job, giving us flexibility in the way we work.
Your responsibilities will be to work in cross-functional teams, to help design and deliver new user experiences. We want you to help and mentor others when needed and technically contribute to the overall design of our infrastructure. You will be responsible for developing and maintaining services that drive our mobile and web clients, also with connecting with our partners by integrating 3rd party APIs.
Helpful knowledge would be an understanding of network protocols and experience with production environments running on Linux. Other helpful experiences would be working with docker, AWS, terraform or dev ops generally, but also with databases, relational and/or document based.
