Job Description

Engage builds software to make finding, hiring, and paying workers painless. Our platform is used right across the recruitment industry, serving end hirers, recruitment agencies and workers, and we are looking for a new platform engineer to join our super friendly product development team.

Team and Culture

  • Be an advocate for devops methodoligies in the team

We run on Amazon Web Services and script using CloudFormation, Python and Puppet. Our application services are written in Java and Node, and we run them in ECS.

Deployments happen multiple times per week, sometimes multiple times per day. We also make use of Lambda, API Gateway, Elasticsearch and Redis.
