The Opportunity

We are a scale up business on a steep growth trajectory, and with that comes the need to build a platform that can continue to scale. In parallel to this, we need to expand our teams, evolving effective tools and processes that ensure we can continue to deliver quality code at pace.

Our platform is entirely cloud-based, and many of our backend services are now delivered via AWS Lambda. Our continuous delivery pipeline is fully automated and we release code to production multiple times a day.

We are making huge investments in technology, and plan to triple the size of our team to over 200 people in the next few years. As well as providing lots of career growth for our team, there will be plenty of opportunities to steer, mentor, influence and learn.

We’re looking for a Principal Engineer to join the team here at Gousto to take responsibility for technical authority across our Growth and Menu tribes. You will be one of our most knowledgeable senior engineering leaders responsible for contributing to the definition, direction and execution of our platform strategy that will ensure we can realise our vision to become the nation’s favourite way to eat dinner.

You will have a large span of influence supporting 8 lead engineers (~ 60 engineers in total)

You will be a strategic partner to the Head of Engineering and the wider engineering management team and promote Gousto in the wider tech community.

Things you may be working on in the next 12 months

  • Scalability - you will help scale our services so that we can continue to provide a great customer experience at increased trading volumes
  • Architecture decoupling - we have a great new direction, evolving our systems toward an event driven asynchronous architectural style. We have made great significant progress with plenty of room to contribute and influence
  • Operational Excellence - our customer base is growing rapidly and for many we have become an essential service. You will help us ensure our systems are reliable and when problems do arise we are able to solve them promptly and safely
  • Web Performance - you will guide us towards tools, techniques and approaches that deliver an unrivaled customer user experience

Requirements

What you’ll do

  • Form a holistic view of domains and dependencies across Gousto, and act as Subject Matter Expert
  • Coach and mentor engineers in developing self-direction or loosely-coupled distributed systems, applying relevant architecture principles and patterns
  • Identify large-scale engineering trials in Gousto’s growth, and own the roadmap to address them
  • Coach and mentor senior engineers going down the IC career path

Who you are

  • Ability to guide leaders who are experienced at maturing technical practices and architecture in a variety of domains and contexts
  • Broad and deep technical expertise. You will be tasked with some of our most stimulating technical problems
  • Ability to be hands on where necessary, e.g driving out novel approaches across our business.
