Back-end Serverless Developer (TypeScript, Serverless, AWS Lambda)

Job Spec below shows a long wish list of skills. Realirty is the CTO is lenient on skills, he is happy for Developers with transferable skills to join and learn on the job

Who we are:

We’re a new telematics motor insurance provider backed by Munich Re, one of the world’s largest reinsurers. That means all the fun and excitement of designing something entirely new, with none of the uncertainty you might typically associate with a young business.

The founders include some of the biggest names in the industry, supported by a team with a proven track record of success in the market. We’re breaking insurance like Monzo and Starling have broken banking. Come help us rebuild.

What the role is:

We’re looking for an experienced JavaScript developer to work on building our back-end services and APIs. You’ll be working in a modern, cloud-native environment, able to shape the product from day one. It’s not just another web app; it’s a chance to work on building a serverless platform that will drive a truly modern, data-led insurance product.
We’ll use the best cloud-native, serverless technologies to help us focus on delivering features and value, rather than infrastructure. Our tech will both delight our customers and not be noticed if we’re doing our job right.

What you’ll be doing with your days:

  • Developing our services with modern, functional TypeScript (with Node.js) in Lambda
  • Ship. Often. Automated testing with CI/CD. Design and evolve our DevOps tooling.
  • AWS Lambda with Serverless framework
  • Building our AWS cloud environment – we build it, we run it
  • Performance tuning and optimisation – we LOVE getting the best bang for our buck
  • Embracing the right tools for the job
  • Be enthusiastic about learning new things to help us go faster and stay lean
  • Experiment, test, measure, iterate
  • Security focussed – we take it seriously and have run hacker bounty programs

  • Skills you’ll need:

    • TypeScript, JavaScript (ES6+), Node.js
    • AWS Services – AWS Lambda, DynamoDB, CloudFormation
    • GraphQL (Apollo), with some REST API endpoints
    • Git. Obviously :) We’re GitHub people.
    • Serverless framework
    • Data modelling (NoSQL and Relational – DynamoDB, Postgres RDS)
    • Event Driven and Async Patterns
    • Domain-driven design/service-oriented
    • architecture/microservices experience very useful

      Bonus Points - Skills that’ll give you an edge:

      • Any frontend/hybrid app stack exposure (modern HTML/CSS, React) – this role can absolutely be full stack if you’re up for the challenge
      • Willingness to adopt additional languages – Python is also in use. Polyglots welcome.

      • Benefits:

        • Decent developer setup (15” MacBook Pro, 4K Monitors and so on)
        • Generous salary
        • 25 days’ holiday plus your birthday off
        • Pension
        • Enthusiastic investment in your development, equipment and ideas
        • Free parking
        • Free healthy snacks

        • Where the job is:

          We work in a rural location near Guildford. The office is a converted stable in an idyllic hamlet close to Godalming, Surrey, which has a main line to London.
