Location: Central London, UK
Salary: Top Notch
Do you know how to solve problems in terms of queues and caches? Does the idea of truly scaling your architecture on AWS excite you? Not fazed by designing your workloads to be distributed?
Household name in the UK looking for an excellent problem solver comfortable with getting stuck into their very successful platform: the APIs that drive their website, intensive/distributed data processing, valuation algorithms and the ops work that binds it all together.
Their stack is built on an AWS / in-house hybrid, deployed on Linux, and uses Gearman, Memcached and RDS for highly burstable throughput.
An eye for optimization, problem-solving, and wanting the responsibility that comes with shaping technical decisions more important than necessarily having Modern Perl (although that’d be advantageous too…)
