The role

A full-stack developer role but not as you know it, we do not build websites or applications. We are looking for the top 1 % of engineers to join the Just After Midnight team.  If you are the type of person other engineers turn to solve problems, then read on.

The role is about guiding best practice on how to build and architect modern web applications. The role is broad, varied and full-stack in a real sense. From design and build of cloud solutions on AWS and Azure, generating Infrastructure-as-Code, designing monitoring strategy, testing automation and getting to the root of problems will be your day-to-day (don’t worry, no bug fixing!). You will provide guidance and recommendations on how to address and resolve issues.

This is a role for someone who has been doing development work for the last couple of years and is looking to grow in remit, open to learning new technologies, cloud and happy to get their hands dirty where required. You might be from a digital agency (fed up with burning the midnight oil?) or a digital tech team client side. You may be looking to move your career on from pure development to the DevOps or Managed Services space.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Designing, architecting and implementing DevOps tools, pipelines and Infrastructure-as-Code
  • Designing and implementing monitoring solutions
  • Creating and owning runbooks for your designated clients
  • Problem solving and resolution to incidents caused by application or infrastructure issues for clients
  • Working as part of a solution team to design cloud hosting solutions for web apps
  • Involvement in helping improve and automate our internal processes

About you

You will most likely be working as a developer at an agency or at a SaaS product business. You have at least 3 years’ experience and you’re looking for a change; you no longer want to be developing all day and you’re ready to take on new challenges. You have mostly been working on custom applications (think JS front-end, Node.js, React, APIs and a back-end in whatever your flavour). You’re not a one trick pony, you feel comfortable understanding other languages outside of those that are your core.

You’re a problem solver who is always there when the team needs you. An organiser and communicator, not the person that fades into the background. You are likely to have a Computer Science degree or similar educational qualifications and you’re familiar with some of the tools and platforms listed below:

  • Core (some of these): Azure, AWS, ReactJS, React Native, Vue.Js, Node.js,  TypeScript, PHP, .NET, Python.
  • Others: Git, Teamcity, Octopus Deploy, Kubernetes, Chef, Splunk, Nuget, Grafana App Insights, CDN, SOLR, Redis (or equivalent caching application), Terraform, CloudFormation, ARM Templates etc.

We look for people that are:

  • Able to work on complex systems with a small team
  • Able to pick things up and learn quickly
  • Able to work independently on individual initiatives and/or team projects
    Inquisitive in nature
  • Have excellent Communication skills
  • A positive, team player
  • Honest, apolitical
